Sableye Strategy Guide

Sableye Strengths & Weaknesses

Strengths
Can sneak past enemies with its stealth mode from its moves and passive, Prankster, making it easy to get in and out goal zones.
Can get Aeos energy just by hitting opponents with its dash move Thief without needing to defeat them first.
Trick enemies with its Feint Attack by using dummy Aeos to blast off unsuspected opponents that picks it up. Also, it can be used as an observer tool to increase ground vision on which you can monitor the opposing team's movement that may further aim your team's strategy.
Watch opponents target each other for a certain time period when inflicted with Sableye's Confuse Play. May be used to disrupt the enemy team.
Send enemies back to the base with Chaos Glower and prevent recalling enemies from leaving and stunning them in place, creating opportunities for allies to attack.
Weaknesses
Does not have enough damage to burst down opponents and may be at disadvantage when targeted by multiple opponents at once.
Enemies hit by Chaos Glower won't return to their base when it get hit and damaged by other teammates.
Without its dashes and stealth, Sableye does not have enough movement and flexibility so you may have to use Held Items like Float Stone to compensate for it.
Unlike other Supporters that can heal and shield allies, its playstyle is quite different than the usual as Sableye can only provide debuffs and its stealth, so you might want to keep that in mind during team composition.

Recommended Lanes

The number of ★ shows the level on a particular route area.

LaneRoute Details
TopTop Recommendation level: ★★★
Sableye can easily farm wild Pokemon here and actively help take out Regieleki to put pressure on the enemy's top lane and scoring as many points while the goal zone is defenseless.
MiddleMiddleRecommendation level:★・・
Although Sableye can earn experience points by jungling in the central area, it may not be able to play an active role in the team and take advantage of its debuffs in battle. Its best to give this area to ally Junglers to fully utilize their potential.
BottomBottomRecommendation level: ★★★
Sableye may use its debuffs and stealth on supporting its lane partner on defeating Regirock, Regice, and Registeel at the bottom lane to gain temporary buffs for the team to use to gain advantage on the opposing team.

All Pokemon Boost Emblems List

Early Game (Lvl 1~) Strategy

Choose Thief

At the start you will be prompted to choose between two of your initial moves. Although Astonish has slightly more damage, you might want to choose Thief as it gives you more flexibility with dashes and lower cooldown.

Make Space For Allies To Last Hit

As a Support, you won't need to last hit enemies. Instead, you should try to focus on distracting the enemy. Make movements to distract enemies right before a Wild Pokemon spawns, though make sure not to be KO'd in the process!

Steal Aeos Energy With Thief!

Aside from stunning enemies, you can steal a small amount of their Aeos energy with Thief if this move hits an opponent without having to defeat them first. Use it to gain Aeos energy faster and score more increasing your team's chance of winning!

Take Note Of Your Position

Make sure that you take advantage of ranged moves like Astonish with wide area of effect when the opposing team gathers to inflict multiple enemies at once while also slowing them down.

Mid Game (Lvl 4~) Strategy

Beware Of Multiple Situations

Sableye excels in one-on-one battles but struggles when stunned and attacked from several directions. If you're at a disadvantage, don't push Sableye to battle alone. Instead, keep delivering pressure from a distance and let your lane partner, preferably an attacker, to do the most damage.

Take Advantage Of Sableye's Prankster Passive Effects!

Remain unseen from your opponents with Sableye's passive, Prankster! You can use this to sneak past the enemy lines to score or steal wild Pokemon. It's also a good escape tool against pursuers at the same time you can use it to gank at squishies.

Adapt Your Build To Your Gameplay

Once you reach level 4, you will have to upgrade your first move between the Knock Off and Shadow Sneak. Take note that this will have an impact on the combo you are going for. If you want to get more stealthy you may opt for Shadow Sneak and launch surprise attacks on your opponents while dealing additional damage. When disrupting is more of your playstyle, then go for Knock Off to aggressively stun enemies .

Help Allies Secure Objectives

Use Sableye's abilities to distract or disrupt opponents and assist in wiping out Wild Pokemon. At this point, your team will be in constant fight with the opposing teams, so begin to be more aggressive by using your stealthy skills and debuffs to take on Regieleki or Rayquaza depending on your lane.

Late Game (Lvl 6~) Strategy

Complete Your Combo With Your Second Move!

At Level 6, you get to choose your second move on either Feint Attack which you can use to play tricks with dummy Aeos energy to unsuspected victims or inflict enemies with Confuse Ray so that they start attacking nearby random Pokemon. Which ever you choose, make sure that it complements your first move.

Surprise Attack Enemies With Feint Attack

Sableye may use dummy Aeos Energy and place them at certain locations to spy on the enemy team as well as deal damage over time to unsuspecting opposing Pokemon that picks it up.

Use Confuse Ray When Outnumbered

When your team is struggling against the opposing team on map objectives, you can use Confuse Ray to turn them against one another, creating havoc and preventing their team strategize for a brief period of time. You might also use this when you and your lane partner is outnumbered to gain a temporary ally from the enemy team to inflict additional damage.

Unite Move : Chaos Glower

Help your team steal the last hit from the wild boss Pokemon by using Chaos Glower to send back enemies back to their base while preventing low HP opponents already recalling from escaping, all while dealing damage on the side. This move can be a game changer that can turn the tables so use it strategically. Make sure to use it with moves like Confuse Ray to further disrupt the enemy team.
