Whirlwind (Japanese: ふきとばし Blow Away) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

File:Whirlwind III.gif
Whirlwind's effect ends battle against the wild Pokémon

Generation I

Whirlwind can be used to automatically end wild Pokémon battles and has normal priority. However, it has no effect in a trainer battle.

Generation II

Now, when in battle against a trainer, Whirlwind will force a switch with a randomly chosen Pokémon from the trainer's party. If there isn't another Pokémon, Whirlwind will fail. It also has decreased priority now. Otherwise, it is exactly the same as Generation I.

Generation III and IV

Whirlwind will fail when used against Pokémon with the ability Suction Cups or under the effects of Ingrain. In a trainer battle, rather than switching out to a random Pokémon in the party, it switches out to the next Pokémon in line that has not fainted.

Generation V

Same as before, but can now be reflected with Magic Coat.
