This is based on personal experiments. A Zubat that is caught in the Cave of Origin in Pokemon Sapphire or Ruby that is exactly 2'7" tall and weighs 17 pounds will be black. It counts as shiny, appearing with the sparkle effect. When transferred to a 4th gen game, it turns green like a normal shiny. I don't know if it retains its black coloration in FireRed, LeafGreen, or Emerald, but it cannot be caught in these games, as the cave of origin is inaccessible.--Zeebiedeebie 18:19, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
- That... sounds ridiculous. No offense to you, but a claim that outlandish is gonna need some pictorial evidence. --AndyPKMN 19:37, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
Someone needs to change this...
I have a Zubat in Pokémon Dimond Version that I caught at lv. 6 and it didn't learn astonish until lv. 9. It still doesn't know bite. I think someone needs to edit the Gen. IV learnset. Dolphins_are_awesome! 21:41, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
- OK, you know what? I'll test this myself tomorrow to clear up any disagreements, unless someone else does it first--The Kkllnnator blastoise 21:51, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

When I first saw Zubat, I thought its ears were eyes. Is this a common thing to mistake ears for eyes?
First with a unique type combination
"If Nidoqueen and Nidoking are not counted, then Zubat is the first Pokemon in National Pokedex order with a unique type combination"
Why would Nidoqueen and Nidoking not be counted? Should that be changed? Flyingtypefan 17:10, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
