Sketch is a move-copying Normal-type move.


Sketch copies the last move used by the target, allowing the user to use said move permanently. Sketch disappears from the user's moveset once used successfully.

Sketch cannot copy moves that are called by other moves like Metronome or Nature Power. Instead, it will copy Metronome or Nature Power.

Sketch cannot copy moves that take two turns to execute such as Dig, Dive, Fly, Phantom Force, Quantum Leap, Razor Wind, Skull Bash, Sky Attack, or Solar Beam regardless of which turn Sketch is used, or which turn the Pokemon using Sketch is switched in. Instead, Sketch will either fail if a two-turn move is the first and only move used, or it will Sketch whatever move was used prior to the two-turn move(s). The lone exception to this is Solar Beam, which can be Sketched only if the effects of Sunny Day are active.

Sketch will fail if used on a target protected by Crafty Shield.
