Crobat (Japanese: クロバット Crobat) is a dual-type Poison/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Golbat when leveled up with high friendship. It is the final form of Zubat.

Biology

Crobat is a purple, bat-like Pokémon. Crobat has a stubby pair of feet, and has developed a second pair of wings with greenish-blue undersides and two stubby 'fingers'. Crobat's pointed ears are long, and appear to lack insides. Crobat's mouth is small and appears to have its teeth constantly bared. Crobat's eyes are yellow with red pupils. Crobat is a nocturnal Pokémon. If Crobat is flying by fluttering only a pair of wings on either the forelegs or hind legs, it is proof that Crobat has been flying a long distance. It switches the wings it uses if it is tired. By alternately resting its front and rear wings, it can fly all day without having to stop. Crobat rests by hanging on a tree branch with its rear legs that serve as wings. Crobat is a cave-dwelling Pokémon.

Major appearances

Brock's Crobat

Brock had a Crobat that he originally caught as a Zubat. It reached its final evolutionary form in Control Freak!. He eventually gave it to his brother Forrest.

Other

Several Crobat appeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part One, employed by the followers of Hunter J.

Minor appearances

Crobat made a small appearance in The Rise of Darkrai as one of the Pokémon Darkrai hit with a Dark Void attack as the other Trainers were attacking him.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
EP196 Crobat Ash's Pokédex Crobat, the evolved form of Golbat. With its two additional wings, Crobat is able to fly much faster than Golbat.
This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

Janine's Crobat as it appears in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Crossing Crobat, Janine uses a Crobat to fight Suicune, but even her best ninja-based skills fail to defeat the legendary Water-type.

In Chinchou in Charge, a herd of Crobat, Zubat, and Golbat attacked Misty, Brock, and Erika in the Tohjo Falls.

Giovanni is later seen with a Crobat in PS282, presumably picked up during his solo training journey.

In the TCG

Main article: Crobat (TCG)

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Crobat only appears as a random trophy.

Trophy information

A Bat Pokémon that evolves from Golbat, Crobat's hind legs have evolved into a second pair of wings, which allows it to fly at great speeds but limits its ability to rest. The affection a Golbat has for its Trainer is vital for the evolution process: if a novice Trainer has a Crobat, it shows that he or she cares for Pokémon well.

Trivia

  • Despite the fact that the Pokédex information says that Crobat's rear legs and rear wings are the same body part, Crobat clearly has a set of feet and legs distinct from its hind wings depicted in the rear sprites in Generation III, front sprites in Generation V as well as in the anime, TCG, and 3D games. However, the footprint in the Pokédex for Crobat is blank.
  • With the exception of Pokémon Crystal, since its debut in Generation II, Crobat's color scheme has been Golbat's color scheme, inverted. This also applies to its Shiny variation (this applies to Pokémon Crystal).
  • Crobat has the highest base stat total of all Poison-type Pokémon.
  • Crobat is the fastest Poison-type Pokémon, with a base Speed of 130.
  • Crobat is the only Pokémon of its body type that is not Bug-type or in the Bug Egg Group.
  • Crobat shares its species name with Zubat, Golbat, and Woobat. They are all known as the Bat Pokémon.

Origin

Crobat is based on a bat.

Name origin

Crobat may be a combination of cross and bat. Alternatively, it may be a corruption of acrobat, describing Crobat's maneuverability in the air.
