Just, let me add a personal note and say that I much prefer Sableye over Spritomb. Okay, on the pure, hard, solid facts

Spritomb

Pros:

  • Good movepool
  • Pretty good stats ((AT MAX -- HP: 301 // Atk: 311 // Def: 346 // SAttk: 311 // SDef: 346 // Spd: 185 TOTAL:: 485))
  • Is totally mean to some would-be threats (Slowking, Gallade...)

Cons:

  • Speed = SLOWWWW
  • Bad recovery options
  • Does not pose an immediate threat

Sableye

Pros:

  • Good wall
  • A little monster, as long as you have the ability Prankster

Cons:

  • not-so-hot stats (( AT MAX -- HP: 304 // Atk: 273 // Def: 251 // SAttk: 251 // SDef218 // Spd: 218 TOTAL:: 380))
  • isn't very good against special attackers or the extremely powerful regular attackers
