Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Explorers of Darkness

In this game the Sableye are the servants of Dusknoir, and are constantly spying on and trying to capture the player Pokémon in the world of the future. However, when Dusknoir reforms in the special episode, they do so as well. They demonstrate this by first attacking Primal Dialga to protect Dusknoir (though they are easily blasted away by his Roar of Time) and later by locating Primal Dialga when he is searching for a Passage of Time.

  • Sableye was the first of the 5 Pokémon to be introduced that cannot be hit with a super effective attack under normal conditions, Spiritomb, Tynamo and its evolutions being the others.
  • Because of this, if a cheat device is used to give Sableye the Wonder Guard ability, it will become invincible.
    • They can be beaten when a Pokémon uses Foresight and then another Fighting-type move.
    • The only thing to have no weaknesses and the Wonder Guard ability, without cheats, is an enemy in Pokestar Studios. A Dark/Ghost type with the Wonder Guard ability.
  • The word Sable is an adjective commonly used to describe the black fur of some animals.
  • Sableye was a Pokémon exclusive to Sapphire version. Similarly, it is considered a HeartGold exclusive though it can be caught on the Pokéwalker route Rally, which is only available through means of an event.
  • Sableye is the first Ghost-type Pokémon to actually be affected by Ground-type moves, as the Gastly family and Misdreavus, the only Ghost-types in Generation I and II, have the ability Levitate and Shedinja, the only Ghost-type before it in Generation III, has the ability Wonder Guard, preventing Ground-type moves, as well as other types of moves, from affecting it.
  • Sableye shares the same species name with Murkrow, They are both called The Darkness Pokémon.
  • Even if Sableye is invincible to all types of moves it can be hit by super-effective by using Foresight or by using Soak.
