Effects

Misty Terrain creates a low-lying mist lasting 5 turns, that protects all grounded Pokémon from status conditions (including confusion). It also halves the power of Dragon type moves while in effect.

Grounded Pokémon are simply those that are not raised. Raised Pokémon are any Flying types or those under the effects of Levitate, Magnet Rise or Telekinesis. Full details in glossary.

Misty Terrain is a terrain condition and can coexist at the same time as weather conditions, but not other terrain conditions.

The move Nature Power turns into Moonblast under Misty Terrain.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Fairium Z and uses its Z-Power, Misty Terrain turns into Z-Misty Terrain and raises Special Defense one stage, in addition to its usual effect as above.
