Well, I conducted a test. I sharked up two shiny pokemon for DV parity. The movesets are also sharked.

Machamp, DVs 14/10/10/10 Vs.
Dragonite, DVs 14/10/10/10

-Rock Slide
-Swords Dance


Test 1:

Rock Slide 1: 162
Rock Slide 2: 154
Rock Slide 3: 145

Machamp Swords Dance, Sub
Dragonite Recover to full health.

Rock Slide 4: 307
Rock Slide 5: 321
Rock Slide 6: 280

Dragonite Recover to full health, Hazed.

Rock Slide 7: 162
Rock Slide 8: 162

So, Substitute (VERY unfortunately) does NOT block Haze. Counterdefense players rejoice.

Well, it shouldn't block Haze. Haze blasts the battlefield free of modifiers, right? It even knocks out your own... So that's fine by me.

Well, that sucks. Sub is getting worse and worse with every test.

Though it sounds like you tested under metallic gameboy rules, but you might want to specify where (chromatic gameboy, chromatic stadium, metallic gameboy, and soon metallic stadium) you do your tests, in the future.

C'mon, you tryin' to tell me Mittins DOESN'T sound cute? And who are you callin' desperate? I love being an Ass Bomb.

It should've been evident that I was referring to metallics considering the fact that I used two Shiny Pokemon for DV parity, and even bluntly stated such.
