I like the sweeper set, a little variation on the Empoleon Sub Petaya set.

But the passer set could be played defensively as a defogger until you're ready to pass.

I wish it got endure, that with weakness policy can end a game. I have to say, they are both great sets.

I really like the idea of calm mind + weakness policy, in just one turn you could get to +3 special attack and +2 speed. Maybe Drifblim is too easily OHKO'd to pull it off though. Anyways, these sets both look great.

The YouTuber pyrotoz made a series featuring Endure Weakness Policy Drifblim. Basically, you predict a super effective attack, use Endure, and double your attacking stats while Unburden doubles your speed. Bad matchup comes in? Baton pass the Weakness Policy boosts to something else. It was incredibly effective. I liked it so much I actually bred one in gen 4, taught it Endure, and transferred it over.

Calm mind is a neat take on that though, and could definitely help with that.

What about Stockpile acting the same way but for both defenses? That gets passed too, right? Wow, passing plus 2 attacks and plus 1 defenses is frightening. That settles it, I'm doing that when I get these.

Sorry, I realize this isn't really in relation to the set, but I love competitive theoretical talk.

Yeah, it sucks that endure can't be taught to it. But it is just one of many pokemon that got skrewed in the this gen.

Drifblim might last long enough to pull it off. Its base HP is pretty high but it all depends on the pokemon that it is going against

I actually thought of something, and went around to check if it was viable. If you invest in Drifblim's defenses, you actually get them up over 100, and with that gargantuan HP stat, you have a really good chance of living a super effective hit. This is obviously more for a passer than an offensive poke, but pass that to something like Mega Abomasnow or Garchomp, and that game's over.

To this end, I think both sets are absolutely the way to go here.

Honestly, I think Drifloon is far from deserving 2 sets. Nobody ever uses that thing competitively. And the only set i've seen used is the special sweeper set in a few UU battles.

* VERY far from deserving 2 sets. It's not worth all the extra trades at all.

Do you have the pokemon bred and finished up? To speed up the distribution process, we will be collecting the completed pokemon as they get finished, so let's coordinate the transfer of this pokemon over to me (or any cloner) at your nearest convenience. Thank you!
