I was having a double battle and when I set up the Misty Terrain and Zapdos used discharge and hits on Mega Salamence it got a ParaHax even though the Misty Terrain was set up. Did discharge ignore Misty Terrain because it was a Glitch?

Misty Terrain creates a low-lying mist for 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.

Your Salamence was paralyzed because, as it is Flying type, it wasn't grounded.
