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.
