Smeargle is a unique Pokémon in that it can learn almost any move. Every 11 levels, it learns Sketch, which copies the opponent's last move. Smeargle was introduced in Generation Two, and in Generation Three, only Emerald users could catch him. He was obtainable in Emerald by going to the Battle Frontier and going past the Sudowoodo, and into Artisan Cave. Smeargle is the only Pokémon in that cave.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Smeargle is in the RU, UU, OU and Uber tiers. Known for its expansive movepool thanks to Sketch, Smeargle can make a very effective hazard user of Stealth Rock and Spikes.

Even though the combination of Shell Smash and Baton Pass is banned in the RU tier, Smeargle can still make an effective Baton Pass user, with access to moves such as Quiver Dance and Shift Gear. The main topping on the cake, though, is Spore. Spore enables Smeargle to cripple many Pokémon, and thanks to the new sleep mechanics, Smeargle can effectively shut down many Pokémon. A Focus Sash is usually used among Smeargle, as Smeargle is very frail and will not survive a strong attack.
