Drifblim (フワライド) is the 66th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Ghost/Flying Type, and it is known as the Blimp Pokémon.

Drifblim has two main abilities, Aftermath and Unburden. The first ability it can have, Aftermath, takes away 25% of the Pokémon's HP that landed the finishing hit, but only if the finishing move required physical contact. The other ability, Unburden, doubles the Pokémon's Speed when their held item is lost or used. Drifblim can also have the ability Flare Boost as a Dream World ability. This ability will raise Drifblim's Special Attack by 50% when it is burned.

Drifloon can evolve into Drifblim at Level 28.

Drifblim is in the Amorphous Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 7,680 Steps to hatch. It takes Drifblim 1,640,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Drifblim is a viable option in the Never-Utilized, Rarely-Utilized and Under-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Statistically, Drifblim is tied for the seventh-highest HP in the game with Slaking and Giratina, and it has the moves to either support the rest of the team or set up for a sweep, especially if it can successfully set up its Special Attack with Calm Mind. Dark-Type Pokémon, using the Stealth Rock Entry Hazard, phazing and Pokémon with the Unaware Ability will all have be able to limit what Drifblim can do, especially with its low Defense Statistics.
