Why does the Smeargle learnset link bring me to a YouTube video?
Because he learns every single move in the game. It's over 9000.
Not chatter
Smeargle can only have 1 sketch at a time.
One of nintendo's great mistakes.
Smeargle @ Leftovers
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 HP/128 Def/128 SpD
Bold Nature
-Recover
-Softboiled
-Milk Drink
-Slack Off
Because I can.

Smeargle
Any speed-raising nature

Stealth Rock-Set up some entry hazards
Spore-Put them to sleep before setting up
Toxic spikes-wear down entering targets
Sticky web-Have your slower pokes go before entering pokes

This guy is done if taunted, so watch out.

Smeargle @ Focus sash
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 HP, 4 Defense
Nature: Any that lowers attack/sp.attack

Spore
Stat boost (Agility/Recover advised)
Stat boost
Batton Pass

Spore to sleep your opponent so you can boost your stats with the stat boost moves. Spore when you predict your opponent to wake up or has woken up (if you outpace them). If your opponent hits you, activating the focus sash or they will KO you next turn, use baton pass to pass your stat boosts on. Agility is advised, as if your opponent is faster than you, they will KO you. If you are slower than your opponent, switch out so you stay safe. You can use recover to heal yourself from the damage taken while your opponent is asleep.

Smeargle@Focus Sash
Own Tempo
252 Speed 252 HP 4 Defense
Jolly/Timid
-Spore
-Sticky Web
-Stealth Rocks
-Spikes/Destiny Bond

This set really just sets up hazards onto your opponents team. Spore will give you a chance to make your opponent go to sleep and let you have a chance to set up hazards. If you don't choose to have Spikes, then go for Destiny Bond. At least your opponent will die with you lol.

This is what I did to mine. I had sketch on it and with sketch I made it learn...

• Geomancy (For a big power up so you can KO)
•Dark Void (Nighty night to everyone on the field!)
•Sticky Web (Gotta slower those speeds!)
•Baton Pass(To pass the Geomancys on)

And I gave it a foucus sash so if it's now fast enough nothing will KO it. The only thing I'd train it in is speed and maybe HP!

I have a 2 smeargles and they are good (For smeargles)

Smeargle No.1Item: Quick Claw (Or any drive)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 Sp.atk, 252 Speed, 6 Defense
IVs: Sp.atk, Speed
Hyperspace Hole
Oblivion wing
Relic Song
Techno Blast

Smeargle No.2
Item: Leftovers (Or any plate for move boost)
Nature: Lax (Bold would work too but that's less physical attack, decreasing the power of V-create and Land's Wrath)
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Defense, 2 Sp.Def
IVs: Defense, Sp.def
King's Shield
Dark Void
V-Create
Land's wrath

Both will be very fast, and are able to put oopsing Pokemon to sleep. You may also wish to give Smeargle No.2 water shrunken for priority.
Bear in mind these are smeargles, however, and all the diamond storms and Judgements in the world won't make them much better than weaklings that don't OHKO Foongus with oblivion wing.

PS If anyone likes Smeargles I wonder trade away lvl. 14 ones with judgement :)

One of Smeargle's main niches is its ability to pass stats. You see a lot of Quiver Dance and Shell Smash sets, but why no Belly Drum?!

Smeargle @ Salac Berry
Ability: Own Tempo
EVs: 244 HP / 12 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 0 SpAtk
- Spore
- Substitute
- Belly Drum
- Baton Pass

This set is just awesome, period. You get to pass +6 Attack, +1 Speed, and maybe a Substitute. The only catch is you have to set up on something with less than 75 base speed, which may require a free switch. Anyway, from the top: Salac Berry raises Speed by 1 when Smeargle is at 25% HP or lower. Own Tempo is the ability so Smeargle doesn't get confused, but you can use Moody if you're feeling a little ballsy and don't mind risking a speed drop. 244 HP EVs makes Smeargle's HP divisible by 4, so that after a Belly Drum and a Substitute it will hit 25% and activate Salac Berry. Max speed to hit something with Spore, and 12 into Defense to take priority better if that happens. To set up, use a free switch to bring Smeargle against something with <75 base speed. Outspeed and use spore and then substitute. If they stay in you get a free sub, if they switch out and attack you lose the sub but no big deal. Use belly drum the next turn. This will get you down to 25% and activate your Salac Berry. You should be able to outspeed and Baton Pass Belly Drum. Hope that works :)
