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 an opponent whose current Speed stat is greater than the user's current Speed stat.

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)*0.78 + 30)%.

Fissure can also now affect Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turn of Dig.

Fissure cannot be countered for infinite damage if it misses in Pokémon Stadium 2.

Generations III to VI

Fissure's chance of hitting is now 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)%.

Fissure can no longer be countered for infinite damage if it misses.

Fissure can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra two appeal points if the move Earthquake 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

Fissure's accuracy is now displayed as 30%; however, its accuracy calculation remains unchanged.
