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!

    We did some speculation on Showdown, and we might have an idea of what the new card could be. We looked at Pokemon from Gen 4 that's have had Abilities in the past. Our searches were narrowed to Roserade, Magmortar, Skuntank, and Drapion.
    Hoping it's Magmortar for a an easy Volc tech, but Psychic or Dark Pokemon usually have attacks like this. Would be cool ok to see a a good Roserade/Skuntank in our current meta.

    Drifblim has interesting potential as a hard counter to spread decks, but how many decks are realistically finding space to tech in a 1-1 line of this just for that situation. Plus if you’re playing a spread deck and see your opponent drop a drifloon, it obviously becomes your #1 priority.

    I don’t see how a deck centered around Drifblim could work consistently with Po Town, you’d need to be constantly devolving every turn.

    Combining Drifblim's Damage Transport with some Po Towns and Rainbow Energies might make for an interesting deck. Imagine taking down a high HP Pokemon and healing all of your Pokemon with the same attack.

    I think is going to be a hard meta for spreaders now.
     
  12. Drifblim/Bats sounds fun with Po Town.

    This new set seems to be one to be super hyped for with the releases thus far. How many booster boxes are everyone buying? Lol

    Now if only we could get that Lele with the damage arrangement attack, then you could make some really crazy plays. Guess little ol Spiritomb will have to do for now.

    First off we don't have official translation for attack. Second off garbotoxin doesn't say their abilities don't work it says they have no abilities. Like seriously get online and use rule of evil when garbotoxin is in play only the garb with a tool attached gets damaged

    The wording of Garbotoxin says that all Pokemon with abilities are treated as having no abilities, except Garbotoxin itself. This is also why Rule of Evil will only hit Garbodor while Garbotoxin is active.

    A Gengar GX would be appreciated but doubtful for a while

    Can't wait for them to make one! I'd say the November 2018 set would be the best bet for relese date.
