Trivia

  • Heat Wave's association with the Flying type, as evident from the many Flying-type Pokémon capable of learning the move, is more apparent in the Japanese versions, where it is known as 「ねっぷう」 Hot Wind.
  • This move and Ominous Wind have the same in-game animation, the only difference being the color.
