'''Sheer Cold''' (Japanese: '''ぜったいれいど''' ''{{wp|absolute zero|Absolute Zero}}'') is an {{type|Ice}} [[one-hit knockout move]] introduced in [[Generation III]].
   
 
==Effect==
 
==Effect==
If it hits, it will inflict damage equal to the opponent's current HP, therefore [[Fainting|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===

===Generations III to VI===
Sheer Cold will cause a Pokémon to instantly faint through 'calamitous damage', regardless of level, but is prone to missing.
+
If Sheer Cold hits, it will inflict damage equal to the opponent's current {{stat|HP}}, therefore [[Fainting|knocking out]] the target. It will fail if the target's level is higher than the user's level. Despite having an accuracy of 30% listed, Sheer Cold's chance of hitting is independent of {{stat|accuracy}} and {{stat|evasion}} stats; instead, it 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 can be used as part of a [[Contest combination|Pokémon Contest combination]], with the user gaining an extra two appeal points if either {{m|Hail}} or {{m|Mind Reader}} was used in the prior turn. It is also part of a Contest Spectacular combination and will give an extra three appeal points if any of the moves {{m|Lock-On}}, {{m|Mind Reader}} and {{m|Miracle Eye}} was used in the prior turn.
  +
  +
===Generation VII===
  +
{{type|Ice}} Pokémon are now immune to Sheer Cold. Additionally, the move's accuracy is lowered to 20% if the user is not an Ice-type Pokémon. The accuracy formula for non-Ice-types is shown below:
  +
Accuracy = ((level of user - level of target) + 20)%.
  +
  +
===Generation VIII===
  +
When used in a [[Max Raid Battle]] against a [[Dynamax]] Pokémon while it is under the effect of a mysterious barrier, Sheer Cold will deplete two bars of the barrier's strength. Otherwise, Sheer Cold will always fail against Dynamax Pokémon.

Effect

Generations III to VI

If Sheer Cold 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. Despite having an accuracy of 30% listed, Sheer Cold's chance of hitting is independent of accuracy and evasion stats; instead, it 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 can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra two appeal points if either Hail or Mind Reader was used in the prior turn. It is also part of a Contest Spectacular combination and will give an extra three appeal points if any of the moves Lock-On, Mind Reader and Miracle Eye was used in the prior turn.

Generation VII

Ice-type Pokémon are now immune to Sheer Cold. Additionally, the move's accuracy is lowered to 20% if the user is not an Ice-type Pokémon. The accuracy formula for non-Ice-types is shown below:

Accuracy = ((level of user - level of target) + 20)%.

Generation VIII

When used in a Max Raid Battle against a Dynamax Pokémon while it is under the effect of a mysterious barrier, Sheer Cold will deplete two bars of the barrier's strength. Otherwise, Sheer Cold will always fail against Dynamax Pokémon.
