Sableye, the Darkness Pokemon. Sableye lead quiet lives deep inside caverns. They are feared, however, because these Pokémon are thought to steal the spirits of people when their eyes burn with a sinister glow in the darkness. Sableye digs the ground with sharpened claws to find rocks that it eats. Substances in the eaten rocks crystallize and rise up to the Pokémon's body surface. It hides in the darkness of caves. Its diet of gems has transformed its eyes into gemstones.
Sableye; it looks like demon spawn, yes? With a Ghost/Dark type only shared with it's cousin, Spiritomb, it's rare and unique. I honestly don't care much for Sableye, though. I mean, it looks evil. Not in a cool kind of evil, but the stupid kind. >.> I like some dark types, but ghosts aren't my thing; neither is Sableye. He's nothing special, really. But the fact it has gems for eyes is quite... ... ... original, that's for sure.
In a competitive aspect, Spiritomb is incredibly better than Sableye, in both movepool and stats. This shows since Sableye is in the pathetic NU tier. Thanks to it's low stats, it's abilities of support and gimmicky movesets are generally risky and situational, which is the reason it's in NU. All in all, it's pretty... pathetic.
You know this one time, one of my friends used a Sableye for competitive battling... I was like "wtf?". No offense to this friend, ofcourse. :P In an OU battle, I just don't see it plausible though. Even if it was ingenious.
Now then, what's your opinion on Sableye?
