Trivia

  • 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.
