Drifblim is a relatively new Pokémon within Fantina's arsenal. As it evolves during battle with Ash's Pikachu, its strengths are not totally known. However, it has the Hypnosis attack, which allows it to easily render its foes asleep and thus unable to continue the battle

Evolved from Drifloon in Episode: Playing the Leveling Field


Mismagius is one of Fantina's powerhouse Pokémon. Not much has been seen of it in battle, however it was used against Zoey's Glameow and managed to win with ease. It has many powerful ghost & psychic attacks at its disposal including Psybeam so it is likely to be used in any of Fantina's battles

Evolved from Misdreavus prior to Episode: Playing the Leveling Field


Very little is known about Fantina's Gengar. All that was seen of it was it being used against an Abra and Alan's Nosepass before finally being defeated. In Ash's battle against it, it used its powerful ghost attacks against Ash.
