I caught it, leveled it up, and used it to help with Fantina. I also had a Luxray with Crunch.

It was a member of my final team too.

I love uniquely typed Pokémon, and Ghost/Flying is unique! I love using this guy. I've used him one on my Pearl save and he is formidable given the correct move set. A Ghost Pokémon doesn't need Physical Defence as the trainer should know when to use it.

No I didn't catch it, not on my first playthrough anyway.

I don't think it was near Friday when I went through that area. (it was probably a saturday or sunday) I'd love to train one on a team though. Maybe it will be available in the XY regional pokedex.

I caught it :) and it gave my whole team PokeRUS! So yay~ First time encountering PokeRUS xD

Didn't use it, though, except to spread the virus.

I caught it, named it Balloon, and used it for a while. It's in my PC box at the moment though.

I have caught it everytime I play D/P/Pt because I need it to fill the dex, but I never used Drifloon/Drifblim in in-game nor competitively.

I have it, yes. Evolved mine for Drifblim's Pokedex entry, back when I actually cared about completing my Pokedex.

Now I occasionally soft reset for a shiny Drifloon because it's a pretty cool shiny. {:
I can't think of a good signature.

I've caught it, but never used it on my team or even evolved it.

If I remember to play every Friday, I go back and catch it multiple times, just like Friday's Lapras in HGSS.
In one save file, I DID use the Drifloon/Drifblim, because the times I managed to get it conveniently before moving on to Eterna City, and I didn't have a Flying type at the time. It was actually pretty useful and can be very tough in battle when used effectively!

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

I sadly only caught it and it never exited my PC for a long time.
I just found no use for it, as Gastly made a better Ghost-type in the long run, and Starly and it's evolved forms made a better Flying-type companion in my opinion. Sure, it's a good option on its own, but not when you have either of the previously mentioned Pokemon.

In one playthrough I did catch it with the intent on using it as a team member. Alas, it didn't fit my teams chemistry and was subsequently boxed for the remainder of the game.

I always try to catch it, but usually only if I'm in the area on a Friday. Once used it on my team, but I gotta be honest I'm not a fan of Drifloon/Drifblim. They have decent stats but rubbish design.

I catch him, even more than one thime (when its friday i go for him), but to be honest, the design doesn't like me much, and their moves in the level i caught don't look useful, so i ending put him in the box store.

Yep, I caught one on my birthday back in November 2010 and I'm now using one on my current Platinum team. I think both Drifloon and Drifblim are great ghost types and their type combination is very unique.

I caught a few because I really like their design and I even used one during a playthrough. It was pretty fun, although it was difficult to use because its movepool clashed with the rest of my team.
