Brock captured a Zubat when he spotted it on his way inside the cave but its capture was not seen on screen. He later sent out Zubat to battle Team Rocket. He rarely used Zubat for direct combat, instead focusing on confusing opponents with Supersonic.
In Johto Brock encountered a doctor who had a female Zubat. Brock used his Zubat in a fight against Team Rocket. While battling, Zubat evolved into a Golbat. Brock's Golbat was only a Golbat for a short period of time. He soon evolved into a Crobat in another battle with Team Rocket.
