Razor Wind (Japanese: かまいたち Razor Wind) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. It was TM02 in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Razor Wind does nothing on the turn it is selected, other than saying "<Pokémon> made a whirlwind!". On the following turn, Razor Wind inflicts damage, PP is deducted, and it will count as the last move used. Once Razor Wind is selected, the user will be unable to switch out until Razor Wind has been disrupted or fully executed. Accuracy in this Generation is 75%.

If Razor Wind is not fully executed, PP will not be deducted, and it will not count as the last move used. If the target uses Mirror Move during the turn that the user creates a whirlwind, Mirror Move will copy the move that the user executed immediately before using Razor Wind (or fail if it cannot).

Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Razor Wind.

In Pokémon Stadium, Mirror Move will copy Razor Wind on either of the turns it takes to execute.

Generation II

Razor Wind now has an increased critical hit ratio.

Generation III onward

Razor Wind now has an accuracy of 100%. The charging turn now says "<Pokémon> whipped up a whirlwind!"

In battles with multiple opponents, it targets all adjacent opponents.

If a Power Herb is held by the user, Razor Wind can be executed in one turn.
