Zubat (Japanese: ズバット Zubatto) is a Poison/Flying-type 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.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

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. Strangely, it can use the move Mean Look, despite not having any eyes.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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