PVE Movesets Grades

PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Hex is only slightly better than Astonish.

  • Shadow Ball should always be picked over Ominous Wind.

  • Icy Wind is an underwhelming move.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Hex is the superior defensive fast move.

  • Ominous Wind is weaker than Shadow Ball, but also harder to dodge and has the potential to be spammed.

  • Icy Wind offers useful coverage for Dragon-type generalists.

PVE Overview

This terrifying blimp is probably not as good as it feels. While it was once a "decent" attacker, as of late it's been blown far, far from the direction of the raid meta. As a defender it doesn’t shine in pure tankiness, but its unique triple resistance to Fighting makes it work as an efficient Machamp wall, if placed in between the big Normal-types.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Hex + Shadow Ball and Icy Wind

Hex is recommended for its fast energy generation, while Astonish is just a terrible move overall. 

Icy Wind has a decent damage profile and, more importantly, a 100% chance to drop the target's attack stat by 1 stage. This artificially boosts Drifblim's bulk and frequently forces switches or gives the next Pokemon on your team a great chance to come in with an advantage. Shadow Ball is noted for being one of the better attacks in the game due to its great neutral coverage and solid damage per energy rating, and works great in conjunction with Icy Wind, as the former can be used to bait shields easily. This is made especially effective when you consider the fact that Icy Wind's defense debuff ignores shields.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 4 / 5

Drifblim is a great counter-pick to many, many huge threats in the tier. Its solid bulk and outstanding moveset allow it to threaten many opponents, and its access to a very quick Icy Wind allows it to act as one of the few "supportive" Pokemon in the game by forcing switches and softening up the opponent. Drifblim is a great Pokemon in the Great League, and should always be prepared for.

Ultra League: 4 / 5

The level 50 update significantly improves Drifblim's performance in Ultra League, as its favorable typing and movesets allow it to perform well very consistently. Access to both Shadow Ball and Icy Wind allows Drifblim to hit pretty much everything in the meta for at least neutral damage, which means Drifblim will always have some play. Drifblim also notably has solid performances in both open Ultra League and Premier Cup, though Giratina is still more dominant with greater bulk and access to stronger Shadow Claw or Dragon Breath.

Master League: 1 / 5

Drifblim's restricted CP and high competition for its niche leaves it high and dry in the Master League.
