Mortal Spin (Japanese: キラースピン Killer Spin) is a damage-dealing Poison-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Glimmora.


Mortal Spin inflicts damage and then removes any binding effects and Leech Seed from the user, as well as entry hazards from the user's side of the field (unless the user has fainted as a result of the move, such as from Rough Skin). It also leaves each target poisoned.

In a battle with multiple opponents, it will target all adjacent opponents.
