Drifblim (Japanese: フワライド Fuwaride) is a dual-type Ghost/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Drifloon starting at level 28.

Biology

Physiology

Drifblim seems to resemble a hot-air balloon, primarily purple in coloration. Its once-black, dot-like eyes are now red and set far apart. The lower hemisphere of Drifblim’s body is lighter in color than the upper, while its bottom portion is red and looks torn. It has four yellow-tipped limbs which may be twitched to act as rudders, and grooves running down the body. The white puff on the top of its head, with the pointed portion of it directed forward, seems small compared to its whole body. Like Drifloon, it has a yellow "X" on its face and (as seen in Pokémon Adventures and Pokémon Battle Revolution) a small mouth that can't always be seen.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Unlike Drifloon, Drifblim can be used for transportation, having the strength to lift people. Unfortunately, like a real hot-air balloon, it goes with the winds, and as such, one cannot control its trajectory. However, it can control the altitude of its drift by generating and releasing gas within its body.

Behavior

Drifblim is drowsy in daytime, but is carried aloft by the winds in the evening in big groups. When noticed, they suddenly vanish.

In the anime

Drifblim in the anime

Major appearances

Fantina's Drifblim

Drifblim's debut appearance in the anime was in Playing The Leveling Field! under the ownership of Fantina. It evolved from Drifloon in the episode during its battle with Ash's Pikachu. It appeared again in A Shield with a Twist! where it defeated Ash's Pikachu and Buizel, but lost to Chimchar.

Other

It first appeared in the movie The Rise of Darkrai, where it floated around Alamos Town, scouting for Tonio.

One also appeared in Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade.

Minor appearances

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP093 Drifblim Dawn's Pokédex Drifblim, the Blimp Pokémon and the evolved form of Drifloon. Because it travels on wind currents, Drifblim's movements are unusual and unpredictable.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

In the Phantom Thief Pokémon 7 manga

The titular Phantom Thief, Hiori, uses a Drifblim primarily for aerial transportation. It is not seen battling much, but can hold its own when it needs to.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

When Diamond, Pearl and Platinum were in Hearthome City, Fantina used her Drifblim to throw off some women who were obstructing the trio for being rookies in Contests who didn't deserve to compete, an attitude that carried over even after Platinum won the Contest, to which Fantina responded by dropping them in a trash chute. A few more volumes down the line, Fantina's Drifblim appeared again in Celestic Town, where it saved Diamond and Pearl from a deadly fall, and carried them over to Hearthome City, where she would use it in a Gym match against Platinum. Its Ominous Wind seemed to give it the upper hand at first against Platinum's Empoleon, but the girl then revealed that she took advantage of this gust of wind to send off her Blizzard, fainting it.

After Platinum managed to defeat Fantina with Lax, she then lent her Drifblim to Platinum for her to go to Canalave City and rescue her father.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Main article: Fantina's Drifblim

Fantina's Drifblim also makes a minor appearance in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!, fighting alongside its Trainer and the other Gym Leaders against an army of Galactic Grunts.

Drifblim also appeared as a member of Flint's team. Drifblim was used to finish off Hareta's Misdreavus, but was surprised when Misdreavus used Skill Swap to acquire Drifblim's Aftermath Ability, causing Drifblim to be taken down with the other Ghost-type Pokémon.
