Pokemon-Draw me wings and Fly by rueyeet Pokemon-Draw me wings and Fly by rueyeet
Amelia, my Flying Smeargle.

A while ago, while playing Pearl, someone reminded me that Smeargle can learn ANYTHING via Sketch. I promptly caught myself a female Smeargle, had her Sketch Fly, and named her Amelia.

When I told my sister's family about it (they are Poke-fans too) I wondered aloud how it was that the wingless Smeargle could use Fly.

And my nephew answered, with perfect child-logic, "They use Sketch to draw wings, then they use Fly."

Sounds good to me. :nod:


Done with Scribbles, a shareware drawing program for Mac, and screencapped via Grab because I don't yet have a license for Scribbles.

Did you know that Smeargle can learn Transform too?
What you have to do is have the Smeargle use fly (before Ditto attacks), then have the Ditto use Transform, but it will fail because it's in the air and all Pokemon have a chronic fear of looking up.
Since Sketch works by copying the move, but only if the other Pokemon has it, copying would normally be impossible because transforming changes the moveset, making Transform disappear by the time it could normally be sketched, ie impossible.
When the Smeargle lands, Transform will be the last move used, and it will be in the Ditto's moveset, thereby being able to be sketched. Unless of course the Ditto manages to Transform after you land, which would be an annoying waste of time. I think a Double Battle would be a good environment for attempting such a feat, or possibly a very well timed wild encounter.

Sounds like it'd work!

Though the problem with Transform is, it copies type and moveset, but doesn't change stats; and Smeargle aren't real great in the stats department.

Yeah I know X_x
Though that's probably intentional, to balance it out considering.
Though just seeing someone's reaction to a transforming Smeargle in battle would be worth it I think x3

Heee, Smeargles are the epitome of creativity in so many ways. >:3

While playing Battle Revolution, I ran into one that knew sheer cold-- and I didn't know that.
KO'd the ONE POKEMON that was useful to me in that battle and lost me that match. XD

Hahaha, I think Emily would probably agree with you there-- my Tyranitar was creaming ALL of her teams last night by itself. I Ko'd her level 72 charizard with one hit and Dardanos is only level 56. XD

Poor Amelia' mostly an HM slave, since Smeargle's base stats aren't quite the best; but STILL. It's fun having them do unexpected things!

Well yeah that's what they're most useful for. Although mine is mostly just for the fun of it now that I've finished platinum.

FLYING SMEARGLE! <3 That's amazing~ <3

My pikachu just pulls a hot air balloon from hammer-space when he flies. :/ Least, I think that's how it works...

Hah! I was actually thinking about that....I think Pikachu use Fly through repelling themselves from the ground via Static. YEEEEEEAH. *whistles*

Wait.....this Pokemon.... uses its tail with an ability called Sketch.... to do anything?



THAT'S FUCKING AWESOME. I WOULD PLAY WITH A SMEARGLE.

:iconrueyeet:
rueyeet Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
IT DOES!

It can learn -any- move in the game via Sketch, including the super-special ones that are supposed to be exclusive to the legendaries.

Only thing is, once you've Sketched a move, it replaces Sketch in Smeargle's moveset. To be able to Sketch another move, they have to level up to learn Sketch again, or re-learn it from the Move Tutor.

And they don't have the most fantastic stats ever, so it turns out to be more of a novelty thing than really useful in competitive battling.

Still, I love the sheer improbability of it.

Well, sketching wings makes sense, but how can you fly using assist? 0_0
Still, a very cute peice of art, it made me lol :)

Heh, for Fly via Assist I imagine the flying Pokemon lifting or carrying the other, like in the anime. I am way more literal than my nephew, it seems!
