From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Sketch (Japanese: スケッチ Sketch) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation II. It is the signature move of Smeargle. Although, after using Sketch the move itself is lost, Smeargle can learn it again every ten levels, or by using a move re-learner.
Sketch allows the user to copy the opponent's last move permanently, therefore replacing Sketch. Sketch cannot be used to copy Selfdestruct, Explosion, Struggle, or Metronome.
The effects of Sketch continue into this generation ; however, Sketch cannot be used to copy Struggle. Sketch can be used to copy Selfdestruct and Explosion when used in a battle with a Pokémon with the Damp ability.
Same as Generation III. Sketch cannot be used to copy Chatter and Struggle.
