Fissure (Japanese: じわれ Fissure) is a Ground-type one-hit knockout move introduced in Generation I. It was TM27 in Generation I. In Generation II, it was the signature move of Diglett and Dugtrio.

Effect

Generation I

Fissure has 30% accuracy and inflicts damage equal to the target's current HP. Fissure will break a substitute if it hits.

Fissure will not affect a target whose current Speed stat is greater than the user's current Speed.

Generation II

Unlike in Generation I, Fissure can affect a Pokémon whose Speed stat is greater than the user's current Speed stat. However, it cannot affect a Pokémon of a higher level. The accuracy of Fissure 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)%. Fissure ignores all changes to accuracy and evasion stats.

Mystery Dungeon

Fissure will cause a Pokémon to instantly faint through "calamitous damage" (changed to "It's a one-hit KO!" in Gates to Infinity), regardless of level, but is prone to missing.
