Catcher Smeargle...

#1grimakisPosted 3/31/2010 5:24:32 PM
I caught a Smeargle that I intend to use as my catcher. I used False Swipe to catch it, so of course, that is the first of four moves it knows.

I intend to give it:

Spore

Mean Look(or another similar move)

and something else. Does anyone have any ideas? I wanted to give it Transform just for fun, but I am not sure.

Most importantly, where should I go to trace the above moves?

How about Ingrain to block Roar/Whirlwind?

Also, use Double Battles and have Smeargle Sketch its teammate.

Oh and your best bet for sketching moves is using a double battle, that way you can guarantee the moves get used because you'll be choosing them.

So it can't be roared? I already bagged the dogs, would that still be useful against other pokemon?

Ingrain to prevent roaring
An attack that is not normal or fighting so it can do something against ghosts

Wild Growlithe uses Roar.

It also heals you so it's handy for some of those stronger Pokemon who wake up on the wrong side of the bed before you get a chance to re-Spore them.

^ Yeah, but Ingrain is that much more important for the Beasts because of their low catch rate. If you Spore a Growlithe, FS it down to 1, you should be able to catch it before it wakes up. Heck, you might not even need to get it to 1 with the catch rate what it is.

Alright, ingrain it is. I guess the easiest way to get these moves would be to get Lileep, Golbat, and which pokemon learns Spore at a low level? I don't feel like training a shroomish.
