Any other uses for Stall Sableye?

0 votes

Sableye is my #1 favorite Pokemon and I caught one in XY-- finally-- and raised it to 89. I don't want to start over but it has stall as its ability. So I was wondering if anyone could think of other movesets besides this:

Name: Sable
Ability: Stall
Nature: Impish
1. Payback (duh. goes last and gets double power)
2. Power-Up Punch (a bit weak, but can boost the atk, which is his best potential stat, though it's still quite low)
3. Foul Play (Same issue with the atk, so I use this because it relies on the opponent's atk, which will almost definitely be higher)
4. Shadow Claw (no particular reason, but has a crit chance)
This moveset has worked for me so far, but I was wondering if anyone had anything different or better?

stall sableye is awful and should never be considered on a team,  prankster sableye is much much better and stall sableye just sucks.
Why don't u hack it and give it wonder guard?

Sableye has better usage with Prankster; that's basically the only reason to use it, especially over Spiritomb.

If you really want to use a Sableye with Stall, there are a few things that give it some viability, like Assault Vest and Shadow Sneak.

Sableye @ Assault Vest
Ability: Stall
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 HP, 4 Sp. Def
Nature: Adamant
- Power-Up Punch
- Payback
- Shadow Sneak
- Knock Off

It'd be an interesting set to use, and has the added bonus of the element of surprise. I would add that you should really only use this set if your Sableye has max IVs in HP/Atk/Def/Sp. Def, otherwise it has little chance of surviving more than 2 hits, even with Assault Vest.
