I'm playing 1v1 battles on Showdown and the annoying Smeargles and Arons keep beating me. Is there any way to counter these two sets with justs one Pokemon?
Sidenote: I want to know for 1v1 battles

Aron (Level 1) @ Berry Juice
EVs : Irrelavent
Trait: Sturdy
- Protect
- Endeavour
- Aerial Ace
- Body Slam

Smeargle @Focus Sash
Trait : Own Tempo
EVs: Speed
- Dark void
- Imprison

How do they beat u?
The first one is FEAR Aron and I guess the Smeargle uses Dark Void and then Transforms and then uses Imprison and watches its opponent Struggle to death.
Smeargle can't use imprison if it transforms as its' moveset becomes that of the opponent.

Sableye takes care of both - Knock Off gets rid of the Berry Juice on Aron.
Prankster + Taunt also beats Smeargle.

Additionally, a faster Pokemon than Smeargle with Substitute and Knock off does the job. Substitute blocks Dark Void and first turn Endeavor won't do anything and will allow you to get in 2 hits. For example, Mienshao can be used.
