Hurricane is a Flying-type move introduced in Generation V. The user creates monstrously strong winds that surround the opponent that may leave it confused. It never misses in heavy rain, but has 50% accuracy in intense sunlight. It is also one of nine elemental moves that do the same damage, 120 HP, consisting of Fire Blast, Hydro Pump, Gunk Shot, Focus Blast, Blizzard, Zap Cannon, Power Whip, Hurricane and Megahorn.


Hurricane deals damage and has a 30% chance of confusing the target. It can't confuse a target that has a Substitute. Hurricane can hit non-adjacent opponents in triple battles. Hurricane can hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turns of moves such as Fly, Bounce, and Sky Drop.

In battle


The user attacks by wrapping its opponent in a fierce wind that flies up into the sky. It may also confuse the target.
