Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the second generation. It marks its territory by using its tail like a paintbrush. There are more than 5,000 different marks. Once it becomes an adult, it has a tendency to let its comrades plant footprints on its back. Smeargle marks the boundaries of its territory using a body fluid that leaks out from the tip of its tail. Over 5,000 different marks left by this Pokémon have been found. So, here it is, the one-hundred & forty-seventh entry, Smeargle.

Until Next Time, See Ya
