Smeargle (Japanese: ドーブル Dōburu) is a Normal-type Pokémon.


Smeargle is light brown in color, it has a light brown cap on its head and a light brown tail. On its front legs it has two brown stripes on both arms, it has one brown stripe on its hind legs. The tip of its tail oozes paint which varies in color for each Smeargle. The color paw-print on its back is the same color as the paint from its tail. In the games Smeargle's tail is commonly shown as green.

Special abilities

Smeargle can have one of two abilities, Own Tempo or Technician. Own Tempo is an ability which prevents the user from becoming confused. Technician will increase the power of any of the user's moves by 1.5 if their power is less than 60.

Smeargle is unique in that it can learn essentially any move with its signature move Sketch which copies the last move used in battle. The only moves that can't be Sketched are Chatter and Struggle. Because of this, most TMs will not work on it. Smeargle cannot Sketch Shadow moves, however, if Smeargle uses Lucky Chant before using Sketch, Shadow Moves can be Sketched.


This Pokémon does not evolve.
