That haze effect, it mustnt be a glitch. My theory is that it was intended to do just that, but g/s/c and thereafter, they realised it was too 00ber, and changed it. What with the introduction of heal bell and all.
Well, iirc Haze was made to eliminate stat upping/downing, but it wouldn't make sense to also help your enemy at the same time you're countering them... (DT was a huge bannable offense in RBY because only Haze can counter it, and Haze helps the enemy)
