Sheer Cold (Japanese: ぜったいれいど Absolute Zero) is an Template:Type2 one-hit knockout move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

If it hits, it will inflict damage equal to the opponent's current HP, therefore knocking out the target. It will fail if the target's level is higher than the user's level. 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: Accuracy = [(level of user-level of target) + 30]%. Sheer Cold ignores all changes to accuracy and evasion stats.

Mystery Dungeon

Sheer Cold will cause a Pokémon to instantly faint through 'calamitous damage' but is unreliably prone to missing.
