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!

    Blend energy’s are back! No dark though :(.
     
  3. Dark/Fighting/Fairy is all that's left. Really pumped to see this gimmick brought back. The fact that the combinations are different from their predecessors should open up some neat options in Expanded.

    This also meant we probably wouldn't be getting DDE back anytime soon

    • Unit Energy - Just plain good. I don't see Dragon-types will took advantage of this. Maybe Noivern but Noivern's energy are Dark and Psychic. 3 Geodudes
    • Sinnoh starters - why everything is in right timing? I am playing Platinum right now and Sinnoh shenanigans pops in.

    If this does signal a skipped remake, I'd be overjoyed...

    love the re-done blend energy from black and white, with the new type combinations.
    they don't help my current deck in anyway at the moment though (Ninetales/ Zoroark). But i'm happy for the moment.

    also with all the Sinnoh hype, will we be seeing the lake trio return. i loved the lake trio cards in our D/P/PL sets, especially the uxie card that gave you a 7 card hand just for putting it on the bench. (1 more card than roaring skies shaymin ex and only a 1 prize card)

    I don't know what Game Freak is thinking about, but all these 4th gen hints are quite suspicious.

    I don't know why you're reading this much into it. EX Unseen Forces was a Johto set out of absolutely nowhere, after all. I wouldn't look at this as an indication of anything to be honest.

    I think they’re going to create a new pokemon game for switch after ultra sun/Ultra Moon, and then after that will create DP remakes. They need to wait for the original DP to not be playable on the current console. Maybe the advertising has to do with Pokémon go, and in a month or two they’ll add sinnoh to Pokémon go.

    Good observation, but that's a little too old to be relevant, back then there were only three generations and they could "mess around" with themes like that. Now Pokemon is a well-oiled marketing machine with a TON of content -- if they're going out of their way to advertise something like Sinnoh, it means there's a specific reason for it. Not to mention how the 20th movie and Pokken also are also pushing DP themes, not just the TCG. We're getting DP hints across the board. Other than they're doing it "just cuz," the question is why...

    So much Sinnoh. And that second Piplup is the Sugimori art too. I would be very surprised if DP remakes are the first games on the Switch since you'd think they'd want to herald a new console with a new generation. All these references are strangely timed.
    "Hey remember Sinnoh?"
    "Yeah, why?"
    "Oh, no reason."

    In before Shinno wormhole DLC for ultra sun/Moon early next year (be a first I know but would work and sell plus a Dlc approach would shake things up a bit instead of a standard remaster as running out of titles to remaster! ) .. Timed with a switch release and appearance of gen 4 in Pokemon go.

    FINALLY ANOTHER TORTERRA I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR 5 YEARS

    The Energies don't seem great.... maybe a substitute for Rainbow Energy in a few decks, but the energy combos don't seem very relavant.
