    From the RBY differences guide:
    The word "extra" here confuses me, is it implying that if a move would have a 100% crit rate it is more likely to miss? The end of the first paragraph does not clearly state whether the check is performed only once, so maybe its twice, once for hitting once for criting?

    If someone who knows could clarify this it would be great.

    im pretty sure that it performs the check twice, one for the crit and one for the hit as i recall having a persian use slash a couple weeks ago and it not critical hitting while of course hitting the target

    High ch moves dont have an extra chance to miss. I think what it is trying to say is that it has the normal .4% chance to miss and an additional .4% chance to not ch.

    Have a nice day.
