PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Feint Attack is better than Shadow Claw, with higher damage and energy gains.
  • Foul Play is strictly superior to both Shadow Sneak and Power Gem, offering better damage, lower charge times, and an earlier damage window.
  • Power Gem can offer better coverage against Dragonite and offending Fairy-type Pokemon.

PVE Overview

Looking at it here, you wouldn’t believe it if I told you that Sableye is one of the most threatening Pokemon in the console games. In Pokemon Black and White, Sableye gained the ability “Prankster” which allowed it to use its massive arsenal of utility moves to great effect. It didn’t matter that Sableye had extremely low stats because if someone wasn’t prepared to deal with it they literally couldn’t. Later down the line, Sableye gained a mega evolution, taking its abysmal defenses to the next level while improving its quality as a tricky, utility Pokemon with the ability “Magic Bounce” which nullified and reflected opponent’s own utility moves right back at them! Unfortunately, none of these wonderful abilities, utility moves, or mega evolutions exist yet in Pokemon GO.

As with its debut in Ruby and Sapphire, Sableye is all around a very underwhelming Pokemon in Pokemon GO. As with earlier generations of Pokemon, Sableye is just a collectable fan favorite rather than a potent threat. While Sableye is a pretty mediocre Pokemon now, looking at its performance in later generations, it certainly has room to grow!

PvP Moveset Explanation

Shadow Claw + Foul Play and Power Gem

Shadow Claw performs better than Feint Attack most of the time. Both have the same 3.0 DPT (Damage Per Turn), but the former leaps ahead with energy gains of 4.0 EPT (Energy Per Turn) compared to latter's 3.0 EPT. While this doesn't seem like much, in practice the difference is very noticeable, resulting in charge moves being used much sooner. 

Foul Play is Sableye's best charge move, which costs only 45 energy. Paired with the excellent energy gains from Shadow Claw, and it can be applied frequently to deal good damage or force the opponent's shields. Power Gem is a poor move that costs quite a bit of energy to use. In a pinch it can offer some coverage, and turns some losses into wins for Sableye. Shadow Sneak is one of the worst charge moves in the game, but with STAB has a few niche uses. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 4.5 / 5

Sableye is a popular pick in Great League. Taking advantage of a Dark/Ghost typing which only shows a weakness to Fairy-types, and along with a strong moveset, Sableye gives a lot of value after a massive Stardust and Candy investment is made. Just keep in mind that due to its stat distribution, Sableye will lack some bulk in comparison to other top picks in Great League. Bonus style points if you got that shiny bling bling.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Sableye takes hard losses outside of Great League due to its maximum CP of 1476. 

Master League : 0 / 5

This ain't your place to shine, even if you have the shiny.
