Drifloon (Japanese: フワンテ Fuwante) is a Ghost/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Drifloon are a Pokémon that have the appearance of a purple balloon. Its face has two beady eyes and a yellow patch in between them that looks like a cross, which is where the Drifloon's mouth is seen such as in the Anime or Pokémon-Amie. At the top of their head, Drifloon have a small bit of "fluff" that appears to be a small cloud. Near the bottom of their body are two arms, skinny enough to be like string, with yellow heart-shaped hands at the tips.

Additionally, shiny Drifloon are yellow instead of purple, and have a light blue patch and hearts. Also, there are no gender differences between male and female Drifloon.

Behavior

Drifloon has been given the reputation of being the "signpost for wandering spirits". It will carry children who are foolish enough grab hold onto its arms into the afterlife. If its body bursts open, Drifloon will release its soul and emanate a loud sound.

Drifloon yearns to seek friendship with children, but will run away in panic if handled roughly. Large groups of Drifloon gather during humid seasons.

Natural abilities

Drifloon can have either the ability Aftermath or Unburden. Aftermath will cause the opposing Pokémon to lose 1/4 its max HP should Drifloon faint due to a physical attack. Unburden will double its speed if the item it was holding is lost.

Evolution

Drifloon evolves into Drifblim once it reaches level 28.
