Pokémon GO Sableye (Max CP 1305) is the first dual dark ghost typed Pokémon, albeit not a great one. Sableye is a glass cannon with a few good movesets (Shadow Claw/Foul Play). Sableye is one of the first Gen III Pokémon to be released for Halloween 2017.
Sableye is only weak to fairy attacks, but unfortunately, it’s stats are holding it down, especially it’s super low stamina.
Sableye in the Pokémon GO meta
With 1305 Max CP, Sableye is not a good candidate for Gym defense, but it can be used as a throwaway Ghost type glass cannon in offense and raids. With Shadow Claw ghost and Foul Play dark, Sableye can be effectively used as a second team option (or Pokémon fodder) in Gengar and Alakazam raids.
Sableye has only one type weakness: fairy.
Sableye is known to have a mega evolution. With it, perhaps Sableye will have a better chance to climb the ranks. For now, Sableye is only good for collection.
