Sheer Cold is an Ice-Type move introduced in Generation III. The user unleashes a vicious blast of absolute-zero cold. If it hits its target it will faint, however this move will not effect Pokémon that are of a higher Level than the user.

Accuracy is not calculated the same way as other moves. To calculate accuracy, let's assume that a Level 82 Articuno is using this move on a Level 37 Emboar. Subtract Emboar's level, 37, from Articuno's level, 82, then add 30 to it. 82-37=45+30=75, thus Sheer Cold's Accuracy would be 75.

Additionally, Pokémon with the Sturdy Ability are immune to this move.

Generation VII Changes

Generation VII introduced two changes to how Sheer Cold works. First, Pokémon that use this move that are not an Ice-Type will have this move's already low Accuracy reduced farther.

Second, Ice-Type Pokémon are now completely immune to Sheer Cold--it won't effect them at all.
