Smeargle started appearing in Pokémon GO this week, and it has a rather interesting mechanic: it appears in the wild by photobombing your AR photos, and it gets the same moveset as the Pokémon it photobombed.
However, there’s currently a glitch allowing players to use TMs on smeargle, and displaying a New Attack button, even though it should only be able to learn moves by using Sketch during a photobomb. This will be fixed in the next Software update, though any changes made to Smeargle’s moveset before the update will be preserved.
