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

It evolves from Drifloon starting at level 28.

Biology

Drifblim is a Pokémon that has a large, spherical, purple body with the lower quarter of its body being a lighter purple. The colors are separated by a repeated semicircle pattern all around its body. On the top of its head is a puffy, white mass, which closely resembles a cloud. In the center of its body is a large yellow "X" and on either side, just above the "X" are its small, red eyes. On the lower portion of its body are four long, thin arms that diagonally in four different directions. Its arms are tipped with yellow and have three short points each. The bottom of its body narrows into a short, red extrusion that fans slightly outward.

Drifblim is strong enough to lift Pokémon or people but has no control over its flight. This causes it to drift with the wind and end up anywhere. It can, however, inflate and deflate itself with gas to control its altitude. It is rarely active during the day but usually gathers in groups during the evenings. When noticed, the groups will suddenly vanish to unknown locations.

Major appearances

Fantina's Drifblim

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

Other

Drifblim debuted in The Rise of Darkrai, where it floated around Alamos Town, serving as a scout for Tonio so he could conduct scientific analyses throughout the city.

In PK18, Buizel grabbed on to a Drifblim while escaping from Meowth and his cronies. Meowth's group was later forced to hold on to more Drifblim after being blasted off by a Registeel.

In Foggy Pokémon Orienteering!, Ash used multiple Drifblim to hop across a gorge to safely reach Bonnie, who had fallen asleep on the other side.

Minor appearances

In Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade, a Drifblim watched Meloetta's concert.

Three Drifblim appeared in I Choose You!.

In A Haunted House for Everyone!, a Mismagius created illusions of two Drifblim.

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.

In the manga

Phantom Thief Pokémon 7

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.

Pokémon Adventures

Main article: Fantina's Drifblim

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. She was later used in a Gym match against Platinum. Her Ominous Wind seemed to give her 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 her. She first appeared in Perturbed by Pachirisu.

Pokédex entries

Manga Chapter Entry
Pokémon Adventures PS370 Drifblim, the Blimp Pokémon. It carries people and Pokémon when it flies. But since it only drifts, it can end up anywhere.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

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 in The Legendary Pokémon, Captured.

Drifblim also appeared as a member of Flint's team in Hareta's Heart's Desire. 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.

Ultra Sun There's a rumor that if you catch a Drifblim floating on the wind at dusk, you'll be carried away to the afterlife.

Origin

Name origin

Drifblim is a combination of drift and blimp.
