==Effect==
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. 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.
===Generations III to VI===
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. 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.
Sheer Cold's accuracy is now displayed as 30%.
 
{{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)%.
