I was in a fight with a carbink when it’s called for an Allie, Sableye arrived and started by identifying the carbink, then after a turn that weekend the wild carbink the wild Sableye finished attacked it directly and finished it off. This was in ultra moon is this normal?

Although rare, yes, this does happen with a select few encounters in the game. It is in accordance with the Pokédex entries of the Pokémon in their natural habitats and their choices of prey. Sableye eat gemstones, so Carbink are natural prey.

The only other example in the game is Mareanie (or however you spell its name). It eats coral, and as a result Corsola are natural prey. If you enter into an SOS chain with Corsola, it may call a Mareanie instead.
