Say a Ditto is facing a wild Smeargle.

If Smeargle went first, Smeargle would use Sketch, it would fail, right? Then, Ditto would use Transform to turn into Smeargle, so the question is that would it turn into a Struggle battle from then on (assuming you don't switch out Ditto, run away, or capture it), right?

OK, how about if Ditto went first? Ditto would Transform to Smeargle (with the Sketch PP, unlike last time), and Smeargle would Sketch Transform. So when Ditto uses Sketch, it would Sketch Sketch. Question is, would nothing happen, or would Sketch fail? Furthermore, what happens afterwards when the Smeargle uses Transform to transform to a Ditto currently being in Smeargle form? (repeat...)

Dude, let me get this straight. Ditto with Transform, Smeargle with sketch. Sketch can copy any move in the game, thus making Smeargle the most versatile pokémon in the game, right? And Smeargle stays with that move after the fight? However, Ditto can only use transform. That is only a temporary transformation. It doesn't keep the other pokémon type and it doesn't keep the moveset either. Now that we have this down, I think some research needs to be done. Pardon me while I fetch my gameshark. Hopefully someone else will have the right answer instead of a load of babble before I get it.

Actually, this is itneresting...

Between Sketch and transform, when one eventually runs out of PP, Ditto just might be able to sketch Struggle...
