Since the Rock Tunnel, most Pokémon adventures involve walking through dark caves with many rooms but only one way out.
And the adventure wouldn’t be complete without bat-like creatures that attack you every few steps.
But that’s not all Bat Pokemon are about! Yes, you usually meet them when things aren’t going well.
But these creatures often have some of the coolest designs in the game. They can also be strong allies in a fight.
Bats are a good choice if you like Pokémon that look scary and mean.
So I hope that my list of how each bat in the franchise stacks up will help you pick the best animal for your team.
The first time Golbat was seen was in Generation I. It was a type of Poison or Flying Bat. Golbat is a Pokémon with big purple wings that look like bat wings and are blue.
The creature has small eyes that look like slits, tiny ears in the shape of triangles, and a huge mouth with two rows of teeth on each side.
The fact that a female Golbat’s fangs are smaller than those of a male shows that her teeth are more fragile.
Even though Golbat’s mouth looks empty, it sometimes sticks out a long, purple tongue. Its legs are short, but its feet are long.
Golbat’s teeth are hollow tubes that are just right for sucking blood. They are strong, but they are also not very strong. It can drink up to 10 ounces (300 milliliters) of blood at one time from Pokémon and people.
Golbat drinks so much blood that after it eats, it will have the same blood type as the person it ate. It also eats a lot. Sometimes it eats so much that it can’t fly, leaving it open to attack.
The golbat is easy to find in caves because it only comes out at night.
Don’t think about that weird thing you did when you were a teenager. Instead, keep training your Zubat. You’ll get a cool-looking travel companion that moves very quickly.
Crobat’s design gets rid of almost everything about Golbat in favor of something that is faster and makes more sense in general.
Also, in most games, this guy can learn to fly, so he can take you from town to town on your journey.
This Pokémon will fly down and drink your blood without you even knowing. You won’t even hear it because it moves so quickly and quietly. What a good-sounding crook!
Woobat is a Pokemon that looks like a bat. It was first seen in Generation V. It is a type with Psychic and Flying.
The Woobat Pokémon is blue and looks like a Honduran White Bat. It’s blue and round. It has rough fur and a big, pig-like nose with a hole in the middle that looks like a heart.
It has two tufts of shaggy fur that cover its eyes, and it only has one fang in the middle of its upper jaw. It has two small, black wings on either side of its body.
Woobat’s nose is useful for more than one thing. It can send out ultrasonic waves from its nose to help it find its way, and it can also grip walls while Woobat sleeps, leaving heart-shaped marks.
People say that whoever lands on a Woobat’s heart-shaped mark will have good luck.
If you liked Woobat, the round, soft, living marshmallow, you might also like… well, you’ll probably end up with a Swoobat at some point.
When a Woobat and its Trainer become good friends, the Woobat will change into a Swoobat.
Even though they still have the cute heart-shaped nose, their fur has grown out of their bodies, making them look much more like real bats.
Even though they are much faster now, this doesn’t make them better at fighting.
Start here if you want to find a crazy Pokémon that will help you win a lot of battles.
The first time anyone saw a Gligar was in Generation II, but they are not bats. But flying scorpions are probably the scariest thing I’ve ever read or typed.
Even so, they are on this list because they are like bats in enough ways.
Their ground/flying type is pretty unique and useful, and they also have very good defensive stats. Even more so for a Pokémon that hasn’t fully evolved yet.
They also have a skill called “Hyper Cutter” that stops their opponents from lowering their pretty good Attack stat.
Gliscor is a Pokemon that is a bat that can fly and move on the ground. It was first used in the fourth generation.
Gliscor looks a lot like a big vampire bat and is mostly blue and purple. It has two toes on each foot, and the bottom of each leg has a dark circle. It has two spikes on its tail that look like vampire fangs.
It has red arms with thin lines on them that are completely separate from its black wings and end in big pincers.
It has yellow eyes and red ears with chambers that can be seen. It has six teeth that can be seen, and both its waist and arms are red and striped.
Gliscor’s body looks like an open mouth, and the sharp points on its upper torso look like teeth, which is another sign that it is a vampire. Some of its surface looks like the shell of an insect.
Noibat is a type of bat that can fly and is also a dragon. It was introduced in Generation VI.
Noibat is a pale purple bat-like Pokémon. It has yellow eyes, a black triangle on the inside corner of each eye, three spiked fur tufts on each cheek, two dark purple teardrop-shaped spots on the front of its face, a black lower jaw, and two spiked fur tufts on its upper lip.
It has big, teardrop-shaped ears that look like loudspeakers. The outside is dark purple, and the inside is a mix of light and dark purple rings that fade to black.
Its chest and hips are covered with soft black fur. It has two long toes on each foot and small black hands on the middle joint of its wings.
Noivern is a dragon that looks like a bat and can fly. It was first used in the sixth generation.
Noivern is a Pokémon that looks like a big bat and is a dragon. It is mostly black, but its underside is purple, and the membranes of its wings are a blue-green color.
It has a purple lower jaw, a red V-shaped growth on its snout, two fang-like projections on its upper lip, and yellow eyes with blue-green sclerae.
It has big ears that look like loudspeakers because they are shaped like teardrops and have blue-green and black rings inside. It has a white mane of fur around its neck, which is longer in the back.
It has three red claws on the middle joint of each wing, and between the different parts of each wing are two black fingers. The very end of the back wing is purple.
On top of each of Noivern’s two toes is a red growth that looks like a claw. It looks like a whip because of its long tail. The bottom is blue-green, and near the end there are two spines.
Even if everyone dislikes a Pokémon, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be at the top of this list.
Since before they were called “memes,” the original bat Pokémon from the first generation has been a mainstay of Pokémon memes. A lot of these guys are here.
Under your bed, on your table, in the refrigerator of your neighbor’s garage, and in every nook and cranny of every cave in the Johto and Kanto regions.
In a lot of ways, Zubat is like Noibat in that it is based on the idea of echolocation. So, it’s not got any eyes (and the reason it was so silly to put eyes on Golbat).
This animal can’t live in the sun, so the only time you’ll see it outside is when it’s on a Trainer’s team. But we also learned something important from them.
Going into a cave with nothing to keep you safe?
Lunala is a Legendary Pokémon that is both psychic and a ghost. It was first used in the seventh generation.
Lunala is a big Bat Pokemon that looks like a skeleton without legs. It has a short nose, dark pink eyes with white centers, and a deep blue spot on the top of its head that always shows a different scene of stars.
Its hood is stiff and in the shape of a crescent moon. It goes around its head and down its neck.
The hood is yellow on the outside and white with dark blue streaks where it curves around Lunala’s head.
It has a ribcage-like torso with a spike on each shoulder and three spikes that go from the bottom of its body to the end of its tail.
It has big wings that look like bat wings with the bones sticking out. But Lunala’s wings have a total of seven “finger bones”: four that run through each wing, one that runs along the edge to the tip, and two that point up and may be more useful as claws.
Only parts of the four “bones” that make up Lunala’s wings are visible.
Where to Find Bat Pokemon?
Most Pokemon that look like bats live in caves or other damp, dark places. For example, it’s rare to walk through a cave and not see a few hundred Zubats.
Caves are usually full of bat-type Pokemon, so I always bring a few repels with me when I go in. If you want to add bats to your Pokédex, this is where you should start.
Pokemon that look like bats also like dark forests. They sleep in trees during the day, making it hard for trainers to find them.
But when night comes, these bats don’t think twice about flying down and surprising people. Woobats in particular like dark forests because they have a lot of room to fly around and don’t have to worry about flying into cave walls.
But if a Woobat lived in a cave, its suction-cup nose would leave heart-shaped marks.
Lastly, Pokemon that look like bats sometimes move to graveyards, where they are more likely to show up with ghost Pokemon.
Most of the time, any ruin or cemetery will have at least one of the ten species of bat-like Pokemon. Most of the time, these places are home to small Pokemon like Zubat, Woobat, and Noibat. On the other hand, bigger Pokemon like Noivern and Crobat need a hollow space because they are so big.
So let’s find out what each bat Pokemon on this list has in common.
What’s the most common bat Pokemon?
Zubat is one of the most common bat Pokemon because it has been in every Pokemon game since Gen 1 and appears very often. Even though it’s an important part of the Pokemon world, every time I run into a Zubat in the wild, I get so mad. I’ve been enjoying this franchise for so long that its shrill call annoys me now. When I found my first shiny Zubat, I couldn’t even get excited.
How many bat Pokemon are there?
As of Generation 8, there are ten Pokemon that look like bats. Lunala, which first showed up in Generation 7, was the last bat Pokemon to join the group. Since there were no bat Pokemon in Generation Eight, I think Generation Nine should give us at least one cute cave-dwelling Pokemon to make up for it.
Which is the rarest bat Pokemon?
The fact that Lunala is the only legendary bat makes it easy to say that she is the rarest bat Pokemon. But all bat Pokemon have a high chance of appearing. But in terms of rarity, Noivern is the hardest to evolve because Noibat needs to be level 48 before it will even think about evolving. Aside from this, Gliscor has special needs to evolve, so I’d say that’s also a rare thing.
