  1. If a move such as Foresight is moved, the Ghost type immunity to Normal and Fighting is canceled.
  2. Tyrantiar and Umbreon are evolutions of non-Dark Pokémon.
  3. Prior to generation 6, Sableye isn't ordinarily weak to any type. However, if one uses moves such as Foresight, the immunity of its Ghost type to Fighting moves done by the same Pokémon are canceled, and as a result Sableye will be weak to them because of its Dark type.
