Golbat (Japanese: ゴルバット Golbat) is a dual-type Poison/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Zubat starting at level 22 and evolves into Crobat when leveled up with high friendship.

Biology

Physiology

Golbat is a blue bat-like Pokémon. Its wing membranes and ear insides are purple. It has a large mouth with four fangs, and a large red tongue. Since evolving, it has formed a pair of small eyes. Golbat has a short pair of legs that possess only one toe each. Golbat's ears are much smaller compared to Zubat's, being triangular and having ear insides that do not appear chambered. Golbat's wings, unlike Zubat, also only have one 'finger' instead of two.

Gender differences

A female has smaller fangs.

Special abilities

They have a nasty bite. They can also confuse foes with high-pitched screeches.

Golbat basically have the same abilities as Zubat, only stronger. Golbat is one of a small number of Pokémon still capable of evolution that are able to use Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Golbat tend to be gluttonous and are prone to drinking blood until they get too heavy to fly straight.

Habitat

Cave

Cave Pokémon

Golbat can be found quite easily in caves, particularly in caverns with limestone, which enhances their ultrasonic radar. Much like Zubat, it can be found in most regions.

Diet

It loves the blood and energy of humans and Pokémon, and at night, it flies around looking for victims. When it absorbs blood, its blood type changes to the same blood type as its victims.
