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.

Trivia

  • The word Sable is an adjective commonly used to describe the black fur of some animals.
  • 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.
  • Along with Spiritomb, it was the only Pokémon with no weaknesses ignoring abilities.
    • This, however, changed when the Fairy-type was introduced, becoming weak to it.
