Sableye is one of the many Pokémon that you can encounter in raids in Pokémon Go. You will generally view this Pokémon as a three-star encounter, which means that while it will be a tough battle, you should be able to defeat it on your own. However, to have the best chance of defeating him, you will need to bring the best Pokémon possible to face him. In this guide, we will detail all of Sableye's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter them in Pokémon Go.
All of Sableye's weaknesses
Sableye is a Dark and Ghost type Pokémon. It is weak against Fairy-type attacks, but is resistant to Normal, Psychic, Fighting, and Poison-type moves. Since it's only weak against Fairy-type moves, we recommend using Pokémon, which use these moves as often as possible, which narrows your selection of choices a bit.
The best Pokémon against Sableye
The best Pokémon to counter Sableye will be Zacian, Togekiss, and Sylveon.
Zacian, in its Hero of Many Fights form, is a Fairy-type Pokémon. It is one of the newest Legendary Pokémon added to the game and was featured several months ago in a five-star raid. Any players who have caught it expecting to use it in the Master League will also want to use it during this three-star raid battle. The best move set to teach Zacian is the quick move growl, and the charged moves play a wild, wild charge.
Next, we will recommend Togekiss, the stable Flying and Fairy-type Pokémon that is often seen in the Master League. Togekiss is a perfect counterpart to most Dragon-type Pokémon, but is also a solid choice against Sableye. The best move set for Togekiss to use during this fight is the fast move spell and moves loaded with dazzling glow and flamethrower.
The last Pokémon we'll recommend is Sylveon, the Fairy-type evolution of Eevee. Although Sylveon was only released a few months ago, it has become quite a popular Pokémon to see in the Ultra and Master League, making it a suitable Pokémon for this raid battle. The best move set to teach Sylveon is the allure of fast moves and charged moves that shine bright and a last resort.
You will need a full squad of six Pokémon to use against Sableye for the raid battle. These are some of the additional choices we recommend you consider for these fights.
- Mega gengar
- Mega gyarados
After defeating Sableye during the raid, you will have a chance to capture him and add him to your collection. You will also have the opportunity to capture a brilliant version of Sableye.
