Drifblim -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Drifblim Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Drifblim from the Plasma Blast 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 free retreat cost.  Drifblim's Ability is called Drifting Balloon, this allows for each of your Pokemon attacks to require one colorless energy card less for each Team Plasma Pokemon card your opponent has in play.  Besides the Ability, Drifblim just has one move called Derail, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 70 damage, plus you can discard a special energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Drifblim is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Drifloon into play (I reviewed Drifloon from this set yesterday) and then evolve Drifloon into Drifblim.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Drifloon was a below average Pokemon card because even though it had two moves and a good hp, overall the card was just not anything special and I would not recommend using it without this card.  So I would definitely use this Drifblim card in two specific types of decks.  The first deck would be a deck that is setup to counteract Team Plasma type decks, the second type of deck would be a deck that has a multitude of types in it, since this card requires colorless energy cards to attack, it will fit right in.  Regardless of the type of deck you use this card in, I would use a 2-2 line of Drifloon and Drifblim.  I would definitely keep one Drifblim on the bench to utilize its Ability, and then the other I would move in and out of the active Pokemon spot using Derail when possible.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a superb stage 1 Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set.  There are a number of things I like about this card including its high hp, free retreat cost, and move.  This card is above average all around and definitely a great card to counteract Team Plasma heavy decks.  So if you're considering using this Drifblim card in your deck, I would highly recommend it.  So overall, I would give the line of Drifloon and Drifblim from this set a 4 out of 5 rating, Drifloon was a 2, Drifblim was a 5.
