Checks and Counters
**Taunt**: Fast Taunt users like Thunderous and Whimsicott can outspeed Sableye and use Taunt first.
**Fairy Type Attacks**: Gardevoir, Sylveon, and Azumarill can hit Sableye for Super-Effective damage and OHKO Sableye no matter how much investment is put into the defenses.
**Anti-Status**: Abilities such as Flash Fire or Guts can hinder Sableye's success. Also items such as Lum Berry can take away Burns from Will-O-Wisp. Safegaurd can completely prevent Status from occuring.
I was gonna do Tornadus then I learned that Sableye was not done so here it is.
