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 inflicts damage equal to the target's current HP. Its accuracy is 30%. 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 stat.

Generation II

The accuracy of Fissure is now calculated using the following formula:

 

If the user is a lower level than the target, the move always fails (Speed no longer has any impact on the success of Fissure). If the user is 90 levels or more higher than the target, Fissure's accuracy is 100% (even though the formula would produce values over 100% for a difference of 91 or more).

This formula means that the accuracy starts at approximately 30% ( ) when the Pokémon have the same level, and grows by approximately 0.78% ( ) for every level higher than the target that the user is. This accuracy is affected by accuracy and evasion stats.

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

In the Generation II core series games only, Fissure can be countered by Counter for maximum damage if it misses. In Pokémon Stadium 2, Fissure cannot be countered by Counter.

Generations III to VII

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: confirm it can still hit Pokémon in the semi-invulnerable stage of Dig in Generation III; from Generation IV onward
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Despite having an accuracy of 30% listed, Fissure's chance of hitting a Pokémon is instead calculated using the following formula:

 

This formula means that the accuracy starts at 30% when the Pokémon have the same level, and is 1% more likely to hit for every level the user is higher than the target. If the user is at least 70 levels higher than the target, Fissure will always hit. If the user is a lower level than the target, the move always fails.

This chance of hitting is not an accuracy: it is not affected by accuracy and evasion stats, nor is it affected by other accuracy modifiers such as Gravity, Wide Lens, and Compound Eyes. Additionally, Fissure cannot hit a semi-invulnerable Pokémon (except a Pokémon using Dig). However, effects that guarantee moves to hit (such as No Guard and Lock-On) still affect Fissure.

Fissure can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an 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 VIII

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

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Fissure has 14 PP and 35% accuracy. The user attacks enemy in front and makes them faint through "calamitous damage" (internally treated as 9999 damage), regardless of the level. Unlike in main series, it cannot hit a Pokémon in middle of Dig. Additionally, although most damaging moves can damage a Pokémon immune to the move in main series, Fissure will always fail if the target has the type immunity.

In Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, the move's PP has been decreased to 10, and its accuracy to 20%.
