Hurricane (Japanese: ぼうふう Windstorm) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Generation V

Hurricane deals damage and has a 30% chance of confusing the target. Hurricane can hit non-adjacent opponents 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 opponent 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

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.

Trivia

  • Both Hurricane and Thunder never miss during rain. This may be a relation to a thunderstorm.
  • Despite being said to whip up a 40-day storm when flapping its wings, Lugia cannot learn this move.
  • Hurricane will not lift Dugtrio or Diglett off the ground in the Generation VI animation like it does with other Pokémon.
