    We already have a thread that's extremely relevant to this that's nearly a general smeargle discussion, so I'll be locking this thread. The general consensus I feel is that Smeargle is a strong Pokemon, but its near complete lack of offensive presence and the guessing game situations it throws the user in are pretty damning. A couple of options on how to stop smeargle and particularly this combo are mentioned in that thread, but keep in mind that none of them are really 100% answers to a Smeargle that's being well piloted and more than just cookie cutter Khan-artist.
