Effect

Inflicts damage equal to the target's max HP. Ignores accuracy and evasion modifiers. This move's accuracy is 30% plus 1% for each level the user is higher than the target. If the user is a lower level than the target, this move will fail.

Because this move inflicts a specific and finite amount of damage, Endure still prevents the target from fainting.

The effects of Lock-On, Mind Reader, and No Guard still apply, as long as the user is equal or higher level than the target. However, they will not give this move a chance to break through Detect or Protect.

Meta

This reflects how the games treat moves and may be somewhat idealistic.
