Gust of Wind (Japanese: 突風 Gust) is a Trainer card. It was first released as part of the Base Set.
|Choose 1 of your opponent's Benched Pokémon and switch it with his or her Active Pokémon.
This card was included in the Base Set, first released in the Japanese Expansion Pack. It was reprinted in the Base Set 2 expansion, the Japanese Kuchiba City Gym Theme Deck, both decks of the Japanese Quick Starter Gift Set, and the Bulbasaur Deck of the Intro Pack.
- This card's effect matches that of the Black & White Series prints of Pokémon Catcher, a card later released in the Emerging Powers expansion. However, Pokémon Catcher was given an erratum for the XY Series of the card game, requiring a coin flip. The effect of Gust of Wind now matches that of the Supporter card Lysandre released in the Flashfire expansion, and Boss's Orders first released in the Rebel Clash expansion.
- Due to this card, the act of switching in an opposing Benched Pokémon to the Active Spot is colloquially called "gusting", including through attacks and Abilities.
