Keep your wits about you during this Wordle.


It might be the middle of the week, but there's still no slowing down this Wordle train. We've returned to offer more help to people in need when it comes to getting the Wordle correct. This time, we're helping out with the answer on February 8. Today's answer is somewhat challenging, as we have a double letter and a couple of vowels to go along with an uncommon word. If you haven't started the Wordle just yet, then you can check out our list of recommended starting words. However, if you're already past the starting point, then you're likely looking for some hints.

Luckily, we provide just that further down in this article. We also spell out the full answer even further down, so if you don't want to be spoiled, don't read below the hints.

Today's Wordle Answer - February 8, 2023

We'll begin with two hints that directly relate to today's Wordle answer, but don't give it away immediately.

  • Hint 1: This word can be defined waving or swinging wildly. This word is also a Pokémon move, and it's one of the only ones that Magikarp can learn. The move deals more power the lower the user's HP is.
  • Hint 2: This word has two vowels in the middle of the word. There is one repeating letter in this word. The word starts with "f."

If those hints weren't enough to get the ball rolling for you, then you can keep reading for the full answer to the February 8 Wordle. The full answer to today's Wordle is... "flail." If you're a Pokémon player, out hints were likely very helpful. If you're not, then we hope you got enough of the other clues. Hopefully, every player was able to continue their Wordle streak today. Check back tomorrow for another edition of our Wordle guides.
