    It's a somewhat basic SableLock build that I have modified for my purposes and local meta,

    2-2 Garchomp C LV.X
    4 Sableye
    1-1 Blaziken FB LV.X
    2-2 Honchkrow SV
    2 Uxie
    1 Mesprit
    1 Ambipom G
    1 Honchkrow G
    1 Bronzong G
    1 ToxiPromo G

    28/
    2 Cyrus' Initiative
    3 Collector
    2 Judge
    1 VS Seeker
    3 Energy Gain
    4 PokeTurn
    1 Luxury Ball
    4 Power Spray
    1 Aaron's Initiative
    2 SP Radar
    2 Comunication
    4 Cyrus' Conspiracy

    10/
    1 Fire
    1 Psychic
    4 Double Colorless
    2 Special Darkness
    2 Darkness Energy

    Hopefully starting with Sableye, take the first turn and begin by either disrupting with Cyrus' Initiative or Judge if I have more basic in hand T1, or going for a collector to begin setting my bench up. Mesprit is a fairly obvious tech for locking an opposing LuxChomp build from bringing something up for a K-O, Honchkrow is for Gyarados purposes and to resnipe things with Garchomp C LV.X. Ambipom G is my goto Garchomp C COUNTER, when I don't want to waste dropping a DCE to my discard with my Garchomp C, or for when it's recharging from the hit.

    Honchkrow G is decent for searching out trainers, however could be replaced by something else in this particular list.

    Bronzong G is for PokeTurn + saving Energy Per Turn usage. ToxiPromo is my Luxray GL counter.

    Blaziken FB is to bring up and knock out Dialga G X, stuff with too high hp to snipe, the works. He cleans
    up bad situations in all practicality.

    Oh gosh, you are correct. I must have miscounted. I added 1 VS Seeker.

    I'm trying to get something similar ready, maybe can't be too much help. Not as much suggestions as questions...

    1-1 Blazechicken and 1 Croak with no Azelf, plus only one each fire and psychic?
    Seems edgy, drop Croak play two fire and Zelf?

    This needs a Crobat to score quick prizes? Trade out Ambipom or Honchkrow G maybe?

    If you drop Ambipom, 3-1 Garchomp and Premiere Ball instead of Luxury Ball increases the versus other Garchomp matchups.

    Bebe instead of Communications, trainer lock ugly.

    Unown Q is must have? You can't waste NRG on Sableyes!

    I'm sure you prolly thought of all this, just thinking out loud...

    Good Lock!

    I haven't thought of a lot of it, actually. I have never built a SableLock build before.
