From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
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 heavy rain, but has an accuracy of 50% during intense sunlight. Hurricane can hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turns of air-based moves such as Fly, Bounce, and Sky Drop.
|| The user attacks by wrapping its opponent in a fierce wind that flies up into the sky. It may also confuse the target.
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.
