Hurricane (Japanese: ぼうふう Windstorm) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TR89 in Pokémon Sword and Shield, and is TM160 in Generation IX.

Effect

Generation V

Hurricane deals damage and has a 30% chance of confusing the target. Hurricane can hit non-adjacent targets in Triple Battles.

Hurricane can hit Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turns of Fly, Bounce, and Sky Drop.

When used during rain, Hurricane bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Dive. When used during harsh sunlight, it has an accuracy of 50%.

Generation VI onwards

Hurricane's power changed from 120 to 110.

Hurricane can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if the move Rain Dance was used in the prior turn.

Generation VIII

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Hurricane's power has been lowered to 100. It also can no longer confuse the target, since the status condition is not present in this game.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Hurricane is Cramorant's second move. It is obtained by reaching level 4 and upgrading Feather Dance into it instead of Air Slash. The user creates a fierce wind, damaging and throwing enemies caught in the radius. At level 11, the move briefly speeds up the user.

Description

Games Description
MDGtI It damages an enemy. It can hit an enemy in the air using a move such as Fly. It could also cause the Confused status. The Confused status impairs its sense of direction.
SMD It damages an enemy in the air using a move such as Fly. It could also make the enemy confused. During rain or heavy rain, it never misses. But if it's sunny or in harsh sunlight, it's hard to land this move.
