The user whips up a vicious tornado to tear at the opposing Pokémon. This may also make them flinch.


Twister inflicts damage and has a 20% chance of causing each target to flinch. It will hit all adjacent opponents in battles featuring multiple Pokémon.

Twister can hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turns of Fly, Bounce and Sky Drop, and if it does, it will have its power doubled for that Pokémon.
