Drifblim -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Drifblim Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Drifblim from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Drifblim is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Drifblim does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Shadow Steal and for one colorless energy card this move does 50 damage times the number of special energy cards in your opponent's discard pile.  Drifblim's second move is called Plentiful Placement which requires two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 40 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon of your choosing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Drifblim is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll have to first put Drifloon on your bench and then evolve Drifloon into Drifblim.  There are two Drifloon cards from this set and I reviewed both of those cards the previous two days, both cards are good, but I would suggest the one numbered 49 so that that card can spread damage and then this card can spread damage too.  I would include this card in a psychic type deck that has other Pokemon that can spread damage around.  I would use Plentiful Placement all the time unless for some strange reason your opponent has a lot of special energy cards in their discard pile, then I would use Shadow Steal.  I would suggest using a 2-2 line of Drifloon and Drifblim in a psychic type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly above average, stage 1 Pokemon card.  I like how it has an above average hp, low retreat cost, and one great move in Plentiful Placement, and one potentially great but more than likely useless move in Shadow Steal.  So I would definitely recommend using this Pokemon line in any psychic type deck.
