I put him in day care for an ice punch scraggy, but the scraggy didn't have ice punch when it hatched. I took a look at smeargle and ice punch turned into sketch again.

Did Smeargle have Ice Punch when you put it in?

Are you asking why your Smeargle no longer has Ice Punch?

If you are:

  • If your Smeargle has a full set of moves, it may have lost the move Ice Punch as it grew to level 21/31/41/51/61/71/81/91, and therefore Ice Punch got replaced for Sketch.
  • You may have simply failed to put Ice Punch on your Smeargle. In Wi-Fi battles all Sketched Moves do not get permanently sketched, also in Battle Towers, Maisons and Subways etc.

You've got Sketch back - simply get Ice Punch back on your Smeargle and breed again, to get your Ice Punch Scraggy.

Hope I helped. :)

Yeah he had ice punch as his only move when I put him in and I had a junk use ice punch and smeargle sketched it in the battle maison.
In the Battle Maison - yeah, it would have just reverted back to Sketch. Sorry :[
