My Smeargle has(going to, at least) Baton Pass, Shell Smash, Spore, and (powerful attacking move). He will hold a focus sash. Now my plan is to use shell smash, and have the opponent get me to 1 hp(the focus sash.) Then I can use Spore first(presumably, as shell smash doubles speed.) Then I will use (powerful attacking move) and knock them out. Then use Baton Pass to pass the shell smash to a sweeper. So, what should the EV spread be?(I know, this is weird and stuff, and there might not even be a good EV spread for it.)

EDIT: I was stupid, that strategy wouldn't work.... ok, new one.

So turn 1: They get you 1 HP - You use shell smash
Turn 2: (now faster) You use Endeavor - they kill you
You can't then bullet punch :P You're dead. No pass gg

Or am I missing something
^^^I was  rather confused as well
Maybe it's Doubles and he has Rage Powder?
Sorry, Sorry! i was being a dumbo XD i changed it, how does it look now
Ah ok. Makes sense now lol

Okay, your Spore strategy is much better than your Endeavor strategy.

Unfortunately, this strategy will probably not work.

Why? Because Smeargle has no "powerful attacking move[s]". Although the painter has access to 99% of all Pokémon moves, he can't use any of them with his abyssmal attacking stats. Even a Dragon Ascent won't hurt anything coming off of a base 20 Attack stat. Smeargle's best use is really just to Shell Mash + Baton Pass + Spore for Singles and Fake Out + Dark Void for Doubles.

So to answer your question, the optimal EV spread is probably 252 HP / 252 Spe / 4 Def.

Sorry to crush your hopes and dreams :(
