Sheer Cold is a damage-dealing Ice-type move.

Effect[]

If Sheer Cold hits, it will inflict damage equal to the opponent's current HP, therefore knocking out the target.

Sheer Cold will fail if the target's level is higher than the user's level.

Sheer Cold ignores all changes to accuracy and evasion stats. The accuracy of Sheer Cold depends on the level of the user and the level of the target, and is worked out with the formula:

Description[]
