Jessie's Woobat (Japanese: ムサシのコロモリ Musashi's Koromori) is the first Pokémon that Jessie captured in the Unova region.


In Enter Iris and Axew!, while in a cave planning their next mission, a group of Woobat were flying through the cave Team Rocket was in. Jessie captured one off-screen, as was revealed when Jessie called it out to battle Ash's newly captured Pidove. It was able to defeat the Tiny Pigeon Pokémon with a single Air Slash. It was then defeated by Oshawott's Water Gun after it had worn Pikachu and Axew out.

Woobat appeared again in BW006, where it used Gust in order to create a cloud of sand to allow Team Rocket to escape.

Woobat's first appearance
  • Woobat shares some similarities with Brock's Crobat during its time as a Zubat. Both are based on bats, were seen inside a cave in a group of their own species, were later captured sometime off-screen by a main character, were captured early in their respective story arcs, and have similar English names.
    • Both of their evolutionary lines require happiness to evolve at least once.
  • Woobat shares its voice actor with Jessie's Yanmega, one of its predecessors.
  • Woobat seems to be a replacement to Jessie's Seviper, as Jessie uses it to create a gust-storm to shroud Team Rocket's escape, much like Seviper used Haze.
  • Jessie caught Woobat without even knowing its species name. She only managed to discover it when Iris told Ash what Pokémon it was.
