Interesting that Mega Sableye's ability is that. This would make it another alternative Magic Bouncer that is better defensively and is not weak to Dark and Ghost. Since there is no ability to bolster its stats, I do hope there is some way it becomes useful if base stat bonuses are still 100 altogether, but personally I am hoping for a larger stat boost beyond 100 since Sableye has a low base stat total.

Thanks for reading.

Well there is that defensive ability that people were hoping for, hopefully the stat increases are significant to give Mega Sableye the edge in battles.

Still hyped.

Prankster into Magic Bounce is an awesome combination. I look forward to this.

It's going to get a small cut in speed, meaning it will have more points to put in other stats. I doubt it's going to get a higher base stat total than mega mawile though.

All the Megas except Mega Alakazam got a 100 boost to their BST. It should have exactly the same BST as Mega Mawile.

Yes I just said that. But a speed cut means more stat points to add to the other stats. See mega garchomp.

Just reading this furthers my desire to build up a one-weakness team and Mega Sableye just gained a roster spot.
