Effects

In the wild, Whirlwind blows the target Pokémon away if they are of a lower level, and the battle ends. In trainer battles (including linked battles), Whirlwind forces the target to switch out of battle (regardless of level) and is replaced with another Pokémon in the trainer’s team. Pokémon with the ability Suction Cups or those rooted by Ingrain are not affected by Whirlwind.

Changes

In Generations 1-5, Whirlwind has 100% accuracy (in other words, it is affected by Accuracy and Evasion stats). In Generations 1-4, Whirlwind works on any level Pokémon in wild battles. Whirlwind has a priority of -5 in Generation 3 and -1 in Generation 2. In Generation 1, Whirlwind has no priority and only causes wild battles to end with no effect in trainer battles.
