==Effect==
{{MoveResearch|Does Sheer Cold still have variable accuracy in Gen VII (with 30% only being the base) or is it always 30% now? And does it still ignore other accuracy and evasion modifications? What is the accuracy of Sheer Cold if it is used by a non-Ice-type?}}
===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. TheSheer accuracyCold's chance of Sheerhitting Coldis 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 ignores all changes to accuracy and evasion stats.
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. Additionally, the move's accuracy is lowered if the user is not an Ice Pokémon.
 
Sheer Cold's accuracy is now showndisplayed 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)%.
