Generation IX

Bleakwind Storm's PP and power were changed to 10 and 100, respectively. It now has a 30% chance of lowering each target's Speed by one stage. In a battle with multiple opponents, Bleakwind Storm will target all adjacent opponents.

When used during rain, Bleakwind Storm bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.
