Old Master by kernyeah Old Master by kernyeah
Yup, Mega Smeargle coming through! :D I really haven't done much fake-poke work lately so I decided to get out of my funk and get some shit done :)
Basically to show support for fakers everywhere, in 'real life' ninten would never even consider making one of these lol. However, it would make Smeargle just a bit less predictable than it normally is, and give it a niche as a decent sweeper, although a very situational one.

Mega Smeargle :iconnormaltypeplz:
evolves from Smeargle with Smearglite
Ability: Trace


Stats:

ATK: 20--> 65
DEF: 35-->60
SPATK: 20-->50
SPDEF: 45-->45
SPE: 75 --> 97

The main focus of these changes are stats--the only real thing holding smeargle back from holding any niche in the metagame were his terrible stats, but now that he has passable attacking stats and speed, it would be able to run any sort of boosting set or sweeping set! Stone Edge, Nasty Plot, Return, ExtremeSpeed, and Shell Smash are just a few that come to mind. With max speed investment it can outspeed Gengar and several other threats to set up! This combined with Trace can set it up to be a formidable foe, tracing abilities like Natural Cure to avoid status or Sheer Force to increase attack. Essentially, it would  become the most unpredictable force in the metagame, but a frail one--no amount of boosting, screens, or damage bouncing will save Smeargle from its disgusting HP stat.

More good moves it can now use: Tail Glow, Bulk Up, Calm Mind, Baton Pass, Skill Swap, Psycho Shift, Will-O-Wisp, Toxic, Substitute, Taunt, Encore, Agility, Hone Claws, Coil, Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Hail, Lunar Dance, Trick Room, Light Screen, Reflect, Endure, a faster Spore, Spikes, Stealth Rock, Swords Dance, Smack down, Gastro Acid, Worry Seed

Hope you people enjoy!

Smeargle/Pokémon (c) GAME FREAK, Mega Smeargle (c) to me!

Yeah, while you're right about Smeargle's stats being the only thing holding it back, this simply doesn't go far enough. 65/50 offenses are barely passable for a defensive Pokémon, and even Belly Drum isn't going to give you enough force to actually sweep. Unfortunately, Mega Evolution only gives +100 BST, and even though you've given it +122, everything I've said is still true.

Trace seems like a good ability. But what if : Protean + Sketch.

Problem is it doesn't fit with it's design :c and even with a Mega Smeargle's power is still pretty bad.

Protean doesn't make too much sense with Greninja or the whole froakie line either other than them being water based. The name origin of Protean comes from Proteus which was a sea god with the ability to change shape. Protean" has positive connotations of flexibility, versatility and adaptability. Smeargle could be adapting to different mediums and art styles. As for the water base, Watercolor.xD It's kind of sad that Smeargle hasn't gotten a stat buff by now q.q

I really like this! It could even work as a regular evo, but lord knows GF isn't going to make any more evolutions for old pokemon, now that they've made mega evos..

His expression is like, "No one recognizes my talent" or "You would not know what is art even if this come and hit you in the face" in other words is an expression of a cultured artist.

normalize might be a better option for it... since it would get STAB from everything!
but i am no expert when it comes to strategy! :P

If he had this mega form I would totally get one and man, I love your marker style with the colored pencils because it almost makes the mega symbol look like it was colored in marker ;)

smeargle is one of those mons which just deserve a mega so much like yesss
and you managed to give it an awesome mega design, man! I'm really impressed
also I love the painted mega sign and the fact it gets trace as an ability (tracing is bad thou, its like super lame art lol)
but doesn't megas recieve like 100 more bst? I guess you gave it like too much boosts there, but nice to see you tried to make it more usable :P

:3 he is ultra neat! Smeargle really could use a mega because as noted he could really fuck some days up more often given better stats. design wise love his head and torso.
