Effect

Lowers the target's evasion by one stage. Clears away fog. Removes the effects of Mist, Light Screen, Reflect, Safeguard, Spikes, Stealth Rock, and Toxic Spikes from the target's side of the field.

If the target is protected by Mist, it will prevent the evasion change, then be removed by this move.

Meta

This reflects how the games treat moves and may be somewhat idealistic.
