Good news, Yam: Sableye is usable this gen, with its new ability Prankster (Mischievous Hearts in Japanese) giving priority for his Will-o-Wisp, Taunt, Recover, Toxic, and Trick. He can shut down so many physical attackers that it's not even funny. Well yes it is.
But with Flail and Focus Sash it can help Sandslash, but can I breed it with a move and it still has the dream world ability? And about Sableye, I remember reading that a while back. I just thought of all the possibilites... Do you think it'll be OU or UU though?

IMO, Sandslash has only Flail going for it, which isn't too great since it isn't immune to Spikes, SR, and Toxic Spikes. But it's a good replacement for Excadrill in the lower tiers.

Sableye I think will be an UU, but I think its ability will give him a huge niche over Spiritomb and Rotom. It will fit well on both Stall and Offensive. And since it's unique, it's quite usable in OU.

Sandslash also has Rapid Spin, but I'm not sure how that'll fit into the equation. Regardless, Sandlash will probably end up being the UU Excadrill. All I know is I'm definitely putting a new Sableye on my team. Just gotta wait for the Dream World to be ready to use already...

Maybe someone here knows how to use it. I don't use it, so I'm probably as lost as you are.

Some people at smogon have actually argued that Sandslash is better than excadrill. More power with adamant life orb, slower but enough speed to get by in sand, and neutrality to mach punch also gives it a niche over exadrill.

But I dont think that you can breed dream world abilities, since all dream world pokemon are male (except for female only pokes), although egg moves+dream world abilities are allowed at pokemon online right now.

About Sabalye, most of them are special walls, with 252/252+ in hp/special defence. It uses will-o-wisp to beat physical attackers, like a sweeping Excadrill and Landlos (forgot its english name), and also has recover, taunt, etc. to be annoying. I actually don't like fighting it, because it has no weaknesses. It is a very underated threat with prankster.

So have you battled any Focus Sash + Flail Sandslash like I had suggested for a strategy yet, or has no one noticed that yet? And about Sableye, would a Mold Breaker Sawk or Pinsir be able to counter it? Like would it be able to ignore Prankster and be able to move first and attack, or would Sableye's ability make itself still go first?

Thanks for accepting me Yamirami. Does anyone know if berries like Chople activate while the berry holder has a sub up?

I havn't seen any yet but I don't think too many will be ran cause of all the entry hazards and priority moves roaming around.

I thought Mold Breaker only negated abilities that effect your pokes attack/move although i could be completely wrong.

I think in this clan Yam, CK, and I are on for PO. And by the way, welcome to the clan Kamon, hope you enjoy your stay here =P

Kamon's two points make a lot of sense, Sash+Flail/Reversal is simply not as effective as it was last gen since Priority is everywhere, like Conkeldurr. MB only affects abilities that grant resistances/immunities to the attacking move, such as EQ on Levitate Bronzong or Fire Blast on Heatproof Bronzong. Prankster isn't affected.
