Azelf explodes, outspeeding the majority of other pokes. Smeargle Dark Voids whatever switches in. If an enemy poke looks like it could survive (Metagross, for example,) smeargle endures, and then dark voids next turn.
I plan on hacking a smeargle with all four moves that I want for my smeargles onto cartrige A, transferring it to cartridge B, where the real smeargle traces it, and then transferring the real smeargle to cartrige C. This is undetectable and a major time saver from actually getting these moves. The smeargles are going to be bred the same way--hack all-31 smeargles on A, transfer them to B, where I breed them, and then transfer those to C. Breeding and sketching do not leave traces. This is the most efficient way to get a smeargle with the following moves.
Now if I can only get picked...
Your idea would work well...for ADV 2v2. In D/P, Pokemon switch in after all moves for the turn have been done, not immediately following a KO. So when you Explode, you're going to be putting only what survives to sleep.
What you could do instead is use Endure with Smeargle on turn #1 and have Salac activate. Then on the next turn, you can outspeed everyone and Dark Void, allowing you to sweep with whatever you brought in for Azelf. Alternatively, you could use Focus Sash and Agility to accomplish this but Endure is probably safer.
If you're going to NYC regardless of if you qualify or not, I'm staying in Kokomo, IN this summer for an electrical engineering co-op job. Since Bloomington is only 2 hours south of Kokomo, we could meet somewhere and drive up together. I'm still on the fence about going though.
