Sableye's main merit on Ghost teams comes from its access to Prankster, along with good utility moves like Taunt and Will-O-Wisp, making it an exceptional stallbreaker. This, along with reliable recovery in Recover, makes it hard to beat for many teams alike. Generally, Taunt should be used to block setup, recovery, entry hazards, and status, and should be used in conjunction with Will-O-Wisp and Knock Off to break down many different Pokemon like Ferrothorn, Toxapex, Corviknight, and more. Be wary that Prankster Will-O-Wisp is especially useful for crippling faster offensive threats that Ghost teams hate dealing with such as Excadrill, Barraskewda, and Dracozolt. Maximum HP and Special Defense investment ensures Sableye is as specially bulky as possible and can cripple physical attackers with Will-O-Wisp just fine.

The entire Ghost team appreciates Sableye's ability to block entry hazard setters from setting entry hazards using Taunt, seeing as Ghost teams typically do not carry entry hazard control. Galarian Corsola aids Sableye defensively, as it is also able to cripple Pokemon with Will-O-Wisp and take on more threatening wallbreakers and Dynamax users like Mamoswine, Gyarados, and Excadrill more comfortably with its sturdy bulk. Offensive Ghost-type Pokemon like Gengar, Polteagiest, Mimikyu, Dragapult, and Aegislash appreciate Sableye's ability to stallbreak and soften up the opposition, making it easier for them to sweep.
