Whirlpool is a damage-dealing Water-type move.

Effect[]

Whirlpool inflicts 1/16 of the target's maximum HP as damage for four or five turns upon use, in addition to the damage dealt when it is used. It also traps the target, preventing switching and escape.

If the user of Whirlpool is holding a Grip Claw, the duration will always be 5 turns. If the user of Whirlpool is holding a Binding Band, it inflicts 1/8 of the target's maximum HP instead of 1/16 when the target is trapped.

If a trapped Pokémon uses Rapid Spin, it will be freed. If an affected Pokémon is holding a Shed Shell, it can switch out.

If a wild Pokémon uses Whirlpool on the player's Pokémon, the player may 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.
