Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is my sableye worth training?

0 votes

I'm using it as a wall, but is it worth training, I'm training it because it has two perfect IVs and prankster.

I've seen Sableye do very well in OU.  He makes a good staller, and his access to Knock Off and Will-O-Wisp with Prankster makes him handy.  I would only use him if he has the Hidden Ability, Prankster.

I hate sableye, to be honest. not because it is a bad Pokemon by any means, but because it is SO ANNOYING. Really just here to give a good moveset contrary to the other answer, so here:

Sableye @ Leftovers
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 SpD
Calm/Careful Nature
- Will-O-Wisp
- Knock Off/Night Shade/Foul Play
- Recover
- Taunt

This set is sooooo annoying. A sableye without will-o-wisp is quite dumb, tbh. This defensive set can take special hits and recover, and burn physical attackers. There are better Pokemon of course, but it is certainly worth training.

Mind if I tweak this set and make it a bold nature? I don't feel like to go through the breeding process again.
Well, it doesn't really need it, as it will be burning stuff that threatens it physically, but, if you must, bold is okay.
Ok, thanks
But also, should I still ev train it in def?
no (filler)
Mine has a three-way HP/Def/SDef split.
Not as good as 252 HP/ 252 SpD, as it doesn't need that because it will be burning physical attackers. A three way split I would certainly not recommend.
I have an Sableye now and IT'S AWESOME
Thx guys
