Question about telekinesis

Does the telekinesis gaurantee a hit, or does it just negate the evasion stat?

I was planning on teaching my Gengar this moveset, but it wouldn't really be great if all telekinesis did was to negate evasion stat changes.

Telekinesis raises the opponent into the air for 3 turns, causing two effects:
The opponent's Evasion stat is ignored, thus making them easier to hit.
The opponent becomes immune to Ground-type moves.

So, telekinesis does not guarantee a hit, it just makes attacks ignore the evasion stat of the target.
