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.
  • Prior to Generation VI, this move and Ominous Wind had the same in-game animation, the only difference being the color.
    • Similarly, in Generation III its animation was very similar to Sandstorm's, the differences being the color and the effect on the targets' sprites.
