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.

Effect

Generation II

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.

Generation III

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.

Generation IV

Same as Generation III. Sketch cannot be used to copy Chatter and Struggle.
