|The target becomes trapped within a fierce vortex of fire that rages for four to five turns.|
Fire Spin inflicts damage and traps the target for 4-5 turns, damaging the target at the end of each turn.
Fire Spin can thaw a frozen target.
If a wild Pokémon uses Fire Spin on the player's Pokémon, the player may now escape if the affected Pokémon has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball. However, these do not allow the player to switch the Pokémon out. The text also changes to "<Pokémon> was trapped in the vortex!"
If the user of Fire Spin is holding a Grip Claw, the duration of Fire Spin will always be 5 turns. Also, if an affected Pokémon is holding a Shed Shell, it can switch out.
