Defog is a Flying-Type move introduced in Generation IV. A strong wind blows through the battlefield, lowers the Evasion of all opposing Pokémon by one level each.

In Generation IV Defog can't be reflected by Magic Coat and this move hits even if anyone on the opposing team has a Substitute. Both of these effects changed starting in Generation V.

Secondary Effects

In addition to the primary effect of lowering Evasion, Defog also has a number of other secondary effects.

Opposing Pokémon also lose their defensive screens, lifting the effects of Light Screen, Mist, Reflect and Safeguard.

On the user's side of the field, Spikes, Stealth Rock, Sticky Web and Toxic Spikes are all removed. Unlike Rapid Spin this effect cannot be walled by Ghost-Type Pokémon.

When used outside of battle in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Defog clears away heavy fog. These are the only three games in which this effect is utilized outside of battle. In battle, Defog is also used to clear away heavy fog during the aforementioned games and Pokémon Battle Revolution.
