Effects

If it hits, Fissure is guaranteed to make the opponent faint. It is more likely to hit Pokémon that are of a lower level than the user.

Its accuracy (as a percentage) is calculated as below, ignoring all other accuracy and evasion modifiers:

UserLevel - TargetLevel + 30

This means that Fissure will fail against a target Pokémon at least 30 levels above the user.

Changes

In Generation 1, Fissure has 30% accuracy and can hit Pokémon of any level, but does not affect Pokémon faster than the user.
