Hurricane (Japanese: ぼうふう Windstorm) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation V.
Hurricane deals damage and has a 30% chance of confusing the target. Hurricane can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles.
Hurricane cannot miss when used during rain, but has an accuracy of 50% during intense sunlight. Hurricane can hit Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turns of Fly, Bounce, and Sky Drop, and if it does it will deal double damage.
Hurricane's power changed from 120 to 110.

In the anime
- Both Hurricane and Thunder never miss during heavy rain. This may be a relation to a thunderstorm.
- Excluding Smeargle, Dragonite and Mewtwo are the only Pokémon that can learn both moves, though the latter can only learn Hurricane through an event.
- Despite being said to whip up a 40-day storm when flapping its wings, Lugia cannot learn this move.
- It will not lift Dugtrio or Diglett off the ground like it does with other Pokémon, likely to prevent the need to actually make a sprite for their body hidden under the ground.
