Whirlpool (Japanese: うずしお Whirl Tide) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation II. It was the first HM move to lose its HM status, and was later followed by Flash, Dive, and then Rock Smash. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, it regained its HM status, though as HM05 rather than HM06.

Effect

Generation II

In battle

Whirlpool inflicts 1/16 of the target's maximum HP as damage for two to five turns upon use, in addition to the damage dealt when it is used. It also traps the target, preventing switching and escape. If a trapped Pokémon uses Rapid Spin, it will be freed.

Whirlpool has a Power of 15 and an Accuracy of 70.

Outside of battle

Whirlpool clears whirlpools in the field while surfing.

Generation III

The effects of Whirlpool are the same as in Generation II, but if a wild Pokémon uses Whirlpool on the player's Pokémon, the player may escape if the affected Pokémon has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball. However, these do not allow the player to switch the Pokémon out.

Generation IV

In Generation IV, if the user of Whirlpool is holding a Grip Claw, the duration will always be 5 turns. Also, if an affected Pokémon is holding a Shed Shell, it can switch out.

Outside of battle

Returned to HM status in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Whirlpool allows the user to cross whirlpools on the field, instead of clearing them away as it did in Generation II.

Generation V

Whirlpool's Power and Accuracy were increased to 35 and 85, and now lasts for four to five turns. In addition, if the user of Whirlpool is holding a Pressure Band, it inflicts 1/8 of the target's maximum HP instead of 1/16 when the target is trapped.
