Drifblim and Partial Stage 1 Revealed from SM5!

A new Drifblim has been revealed from SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! The set will release in Japan on December 8th.

Drifblim – Psychic – HP110
Stage 1 – Evolves from Drifloon

[C][C] Damage Transport: Move 4 damage counters from each of your Pokemon to your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

[P][C][C] Wheelwind: 80 damage. Your opponent switches their Active Pokemon with 1 of their Benched Pokemon.

Weakness: Lightning (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 1

America and Europe will get Drifblim in our Ultra Prism set, which releases February 2nd.

Additionally, a new Stage 1 Pokemon is going to be revealed soon whose attack does 50 damage times the number of your opponent’s Pokemon with an Ability. The attack will require one Energy. The Pokemon will not be a Pokemon-GX.

Thanks goes to Bangiras and Sean T. for the translation!

First Cynthia, then Pachirisu, and now Drifblim… D/P remakes confirmed!

    Of course there aren't any other threats right now, what I was trying to say, is that there are going to be threats much bigger than a simple card like Solgaleo.

    Garb (the Garbotoxin one) only shuts off abilities, but the Pokemon still have.

    Dude, totally uncalled for. Also, you didn't make that very clear. We can't read your mind.

    • Drifblim - doing 40 for DCE from any of your Pokémon that is benefitted from Po Town or Tapu Koko's atk is good. Too low but its good.
    Edit: 40 from each?? Not just one?? So, it can deal up to 240 and bypasses Xurkitree. Awesome!! 4-5 Geodudes.

    Technically speaking, the pokemon would have been revealed for about 3 weeks, since Japan doesn't get this set until December.

    Name calling is absolutely unnecessary, and the fact that you've resorted to it tells me all I need to know about both your argument and you.

    You've made no clear argument to support what you initially claimed. How can you possibly make that statement when less than 10 cards from the upcoming 150+ card set have been revealed? You're entitled to your own opinion, but you're not entitled to your own facts. I'm done talking to you.

    I feel like the same Pokémon always end up with interesting cards, Drifblim in the past always had unique, niche cards, and this latest one also seems kinda techy in an interesting way. Probably not strong enough to be prominent in competitive play tho, less clunky ways to counter spread decks already exist in the format.

    This was my first thought. If you can evolve up three or four Pokemon on your second turn (including Drifblim) and then transfer all the damage off, you've got a nice 90-120 damage attack. Po Town, Raichu, Salazzle shenanigans?

    I think the partial stage 1 will be a colorless pokemon and won't be able to hit for weakness.

    Could it be the first 'prism' card?

    Yes i believe that, we have hardly gotten into the nitty gritty of this set. There will be more threats to worry about.

    That could entirely be true, i'm thinking prism star cards will be more like items or such, but maybe.

    Think about that second Pokémon going up against Zoroark-Lycanroc. One energy for huge damage potential.
