Metronome: Mimic and Sketch, I know for sure.

Metronome will never do Thief either. Mru, Meowth346 has a list of Metronome-no-hits. And Encore probably does everything sans Selfdestruct/Explosion. You can Sketch anything but Metronome (er, they actually use another move, I think, so it'd Sketch what they Metronomed), Mimic (you can't Sketch Sketch, and you can't Mimic Sketch I think), Selfdestruct/Explosion (they faint, you can't Sketch them while they're gone) and some other things which I have no idea. Beh. I don't see how you can Sketch the boom moves at least...

Meowth346's list of un-Metronomable things;

quote:
Though I can't say for RGBY, GSC has it programmed in so that Metronome can *never* be. Those attacks are:
Counter
Destiny Bond
Detect
Endure
Metronome
Mimic
Mirror Coat
Protect
Sketch
Sleep Talk
Struggle
Thief

--Meowth346


And you probably can't Sketch Protect / Detect, or Encore the either. I'll do a few tests to find out...

Well, I recently found out that you can't Sketch a move from a Ditto that has Transformed into one of your pokémon.

In R/B/Y, I think I've seen netronome do mimic, and in stadium also.

I found out the moves that CAN'T be possible in Encore:

   Struggle, Encore, Mirror Move

Consider this:
Clefairy vs. Fearow
Doubleslap
....Mirror Move, Doubleslap
Encore
....Mirror Move, Encore
Encore
....Mirror Move, Encore
Encore
....Mirror Move, Encore

in an infinite loop!

Couldn't you just switch out?

Actually, wouldn't Mirror Move/Encore eventually run out of PP?
