Pokédex entry
Although the wings it has evolved on its feet allow it to fly at high speeds, they unfortunately make it difficult to perch.
足にも羽が発達したので、高速で飛べるようになったが、止まって休むのは下手になった。

Trivia

Dark Crobat is the only Neo Destiny card that explicitly requires a Dark Pokémon from the Team Rocket expansion to come into play. Because of this, it was an orphaned card for a time when it came to the Modified format due to the only Dark Golbat card at the time being rotated out in the first rotation. It would not be playable in the format again until Pokémon Breeder was reprinted in Legendary Collection.

Origin

This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Silver, though it is heavily reworded.
