In Pokémon, there are lots of different moves used by different Pokémon. Every week, we shall focus the discussion on a different move, and there will be some base questions that would help you start this off. This week, Hurricane is chosen.
Hurricane is a variation of Thunder, which we discussed about earlier. This Generation 5 move works like Thunder in which it is normally inaccurate (even more so in Sun), but it becomes perfectly accurate in Rain. Because of this, it is a great attack to use in Rain due to its high power. Not even those trying to avoid it through Fly can avoid this move. In addition to this, it has a 30% chance to cause confusion instead of Thunder's paralysis chance. Based on its name, this move sounds destructive since hurricanes are known to cause a lot of damage to anything that crosses its path.
