Zubat (Japanese: ズバット Zubatto) is a Poison/Flying-type Bat Pokémon. It is commonly found in caves and at night, disliking the sunlight. . In the games and anime, Zubat is found virtually in every cave, making it irksome for players looking for rarer Pokémon. In Pokémon Black and White, Zubat is not found within the main game, but can be obtained via the Dream World.

Biology

Appearance

Zubat resembles a blue bat. It has a short, round body, purple wings, and slim legs missing feet. Zubat has no eyes, so it uses sound waves to navigate, like a real bat does. A female Zubat has smaller teeth than those of a male's. Strangely, it can use the move Mean Look, despite not having any eyes.

Special abilities

Zubat has the ability Inner Focus and the hidden ability Infiltrator. Inner Focus prevents Zubat from flinching. Infiltrator prevents the effects of Reflect, Magic Coat, and Light Screen to work.

Evolution

Zubat evolves into Golbat at level 22, which evolves into Crobat via max Happiness.

Brock's Zubat

Main article: Brock's Zubat

Zubat first appeared in Clefairy and the Moon Stone under the ownership of Brock. 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 the Zubat to battle Team Rocket. He rarely used Zubat for direct combat, instead focusing on confusing opponents with Supersonic.

Zubats are commonly used by criminal organizations.
