Sheer Cold

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Ice 1 30% 5 0 Special Single non-user

Description

OHKOes the target. Ignores accuracy and evasion modifiers. Will fail on opponents of a higher level. This attack's accuracy is equal to (user's level - target's level + 30)%. Pokemon with the ability Sturdy are immune.

Competitive Use

While Sheer Cold has massive potential, especially when paired with Mind Reader or the No Guard ability, use of the move is frowned upon in a competitive setting. Furthermore, it is banned under the OHKO Clause, which is in effect on the Smogon server.
