For those who want to take down the Drifblim raid boss in Pokémon Go, we recommend that you bring a suitable team to defeat him. It's a three-star battle, so you should be able to defeat it on your own, but we recommend that you bring the best Pokémon choices with you to make sure you have the upper hand in this fight. In this guide, we will break down all of Drifblim's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter them in Pokémon Go.



All the weak points of Drifblim

Drifblim is a Ghost and Flying type Pokémon. It is weak against Dark, Electric, Ghost, Ice, and Rock-type moves, but is resistant to Fighting, Bug, Ground, Normal, Grass, and Poison-type moves. Therefore, your best bet is to use Dark, Electric, Ghost, or Rock-type Pokémon in this battle. Ice Pokémon are also suitable choices, but they tend to have more attack power than defenses and are easily defeated.

The best Pokémon to counter Drifblim

The best Pokémon to use against Drifblim include Rhyperior, Weavile, and Gengar.

Rhyperior is one of the best PvE raid Pokémon. It is a Ground and Rock type with considerable attack and defense power, making it a suitable Pokémon that can withstand several attacks from Drifblim during the raid. The best set of moves to teach Rhyperior is the fast downward strike and the loaded rock breaker and stone edge move.


The next Pokémon, Weavile, is a Dark and Ice-type. While it may have less defense than Rhyperior, it has many attacks and is considered to be one of the best Ice-type Pokémon choices in Pokémon Go. The best move set you can give Weavile for this raid battle is the quick move growl and the avalanche loaded moves and foul play.


The last Pokémon that we will recommend is Gengar, of Poison and Ghost type. Gengar is mostly a glass cannon, capable of doing quite a bit of damage, but has pretty poor defenses. The best moveset for Gengar to use during these battles is the fast moving shadow claw and shadow ball and shadow punch charged moves.

You will need to use a full team of six Pokémon to defeat Drifblim. These are some of the other Pokémon choices you can consider when battling Drifblim.

  • chandelier
  • Darkrai
  • elective
  • Honchkrow
  • Hoopa
  • magnetone
  • Ramps
  • Tyranitar
  • Yveltal
  • Zapdos
  • Zekrom

After defeating Drifblim, you will have a chance to catch him at the end of the raid. Additionally, there is a chance that you can catch a shiny version of this Pokémon and any costumed version that appears during events.
