In past generations I always used a Smeargle for catching Pokemon particularly when shining hunting. Due to the fact that It"s no in Sword and Shield I"m looking to raise a different Pokemon because that this role. Any suggestions?For reference, in the past I used a Smeargle with the Technician ability with these moves:Spore: an accurate move to placed Pokemon come sleepFalse Swipe: To threaten Pokemon to 1HP (have come be mindful of me damaging moves and also weather effects)Soak: To readjust the typing of ghosts for this reason I deserve to False Swipe themTaunt: Situational but was super useful against Memento Spiritomb because that exampleI know this precise moveset more than likely won"t be feasible ~ above a various "mon, however it"s much more to provide you an idea of what I"m trying come build. I"m also open to using a combination of Pokemon if require be.Thanks for any and also all help!

Ok I"ll provide Gallade a shot. I lot prefer the 100% accuracy of Spore however I don"t think can acquire that in mix with False Swipe ~ above the very same "mon in Sword and Shield. I"ll just need to bare with the 60% accuracy.Also, when do you have tendency use thunder wave over hypnosis?
