Targets a single adjacent Pokemon.
Whirlpool inflicts damage on the first turn then traps the opponent
in the vortex, causing them to lose 1⁄16 of their maximum HP after each turn, for 4-5 turns. If the user holds a Grip Claw then it is always 5 turns.
If the opponent is hidden underwater from using Dive, Whirlpool will hit with double power.
In Generations 1-4, Whirlpool has a base power of 15 and 70% accuracy. Its after-effects last for 2-5 turns instead of 4-5.
Whirlpool allows you to cross swirling maelstroms in your path. (Only Generation 2 and Generation 4 have Whirlpools that can be passed.)
