I find this definition to be quite cumbersome and repitive. Talking about decimating other Pokemon doesn't seem very "Encylopedia-like". But this is just me. I would rather a concise article to this lengthy one. If anyone else agrees, I can rewrite it. --ZellMurasame 05:55, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Furthermore, the correct definition of 'decimate' is "to kill one in ten." Might I suggest 'obliterate' as a better substitute? --Alex S. 04:30, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
I changed the offending section. — THE TROM — 05:18, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


Can moves like Endure or items like the Focus Sash keep a Pokémon which doesn't have the Sturdy ability from being knocked out if a OHKO move hits it? This would seem like a good way to protect a Pokémon from fainting from that kind of move. Superbreeder 21:00, 13 April 2009 (UTC)


I'm pretty sure accuracy changes, depending on the levels of the user and the target. Try using Sheer Cold with a Kyogre against a lv. 1 Pokémon a lot of times and you will hit a lot of times. According to [Smogon], OHKO moves accuracy is calculated as follows:

Accuracy = ((User Level - Target Level) + 30)% Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 05:44, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

That is correct.--ForceFire 07:14, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
So, shouldn't this be in this article and also Fissure, Sheer Cold, Guillotine and Horn Drill? I think it's worth noting, instead of saying just it is 30% accurate. Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 14:43, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
