Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Drifblim from the Steam Siege 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, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Drifblim does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Eerie Wave, for two colorless energy cards, this move does 30 damage, plus it confuses the defending Pokemon. Drifblim's second move is called Burst Curse, for two psychic energy cards, this move allows you to put 8 damage counters on your opponent's Pokemon in any way that you like, you just need to discard 2 energy cards attached to this Pokemon first.
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 of Drifloon, you'll know that I thought it was an average Basic Pokemon card. Even though it couldn't be used as a starter type Pokemon in a deck, because it couldn't attack without damage on your own Pokemon first, I thought the card was still usable in a few different deck types, especially a spread attack deck. So knowing this about Drifloon and looking at this Drifblim card, this is another card that works well in a spread attack type deck. This card will take a while to set up since you have to discard energy every turn to do major damage, but I would load this card up with 4 energy cards, 2 Burning Energy and two psychic, that way, you could use Burst Curse every turn and you would discard the Burning Energy and of course with that energy you don't have to discard it. Ideally, you would use Eerie Wave first, to potentially prevent the defending Pokemon from attacking and then use Burst Curse after that, knocking out your opponent's benched Pokemon that already have damage on them. In a spread attack type deck, I would definitely recommend using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set. This is a great card to use in a spread attack type deck, you can spread out 80 damage a turn for only two energy cards with this card, and if you don't have that much energy, you can also do 30 damage a turn plus confuse the defending Pokemon. Together with Drifloon from this set, which I gave a 3 out of 5 rating, I would give these two cards a 3 out of 5 rating, it is definitely a line to consider for a spread attack type deck.
