Zubat (Japaneseズバット Zubat) is a dual-type Poison/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Golbat starting at level 22, which evolves into Crobat when leveled up with high friendship.

Biology

Zubat is a blue, bat-like Pokémon. While it lacks eyes, it has pointed ears with purple insides and a mouth with two sharp teeth on each jaw. A male will have larger fangs than a female. It has purple wing membranes supported by two, elongated fingers, and two long, thin, tails.

Zubat lives in abundance in caves. It has evolved to have neither eyes nor nostrils, it instead navigates through dark environments and tight caves with echolocation. As demonstrated in the anime, it will leave its abode at night with a mass of other Zubat in order to seek prey. During the daytime, Zubat sleeps hanging upside down in caves, forests, or under the eaves of old buildings, avoiding sunlight at all costs. Zubat also gather together in groups during the morning in order to stay warm while they sleep. Daylight causes Zubat to become unhealthy, and prolonged exposure can even burn its skin. However, captured and trained Zubat have been recorded as being much more tenacious in the daytime, even when directly exposed to sunbeams. In colder conditions, Zubat gathers with others of its kind for warmth.

Ruby Zubat remains quietly unmoving in a dark spot during the bright daylight hours. It does so because prolonged exposure to the sun causes its body to become slightly burned.
Sapphire Zubat avoids sunlight because exposure causes it to become unhealthy. During the daytime, it stays in caves or under the eaves of old houses, sleeping while hanging upside down.
Emerald While living in pitch-black caverns, their eyes gradually grew shut and deprived them of vision. They use ultrasonic waves to detect obstacles.
FireRed It has no eyes. Instead, it relies on its ultrasonic cries for echo location to flit about in darkness.
LeafGreen It forms colonies in perpetually dark places and uses ultrasonic waves to identify and approach targets.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Zubat and its evolved forms.
  • Zubat's evolutionary family has several similarities with Woobat's. All of the members of both lines are called the Bat Pokémon (excluding Swoobat), live in caves or other dark places, and have no visible eyes at their respective unevolved states; furthermore, members of both lines reach their respective fully-evolved forms by friendship, and both have similar Shiny forms (with green main bodies). Also, Zubat and Woobat have somewhat similar English names, both having rhyming prefixes and bat as a suffix.
  • Zubat and its evolved forms share their category with Woobat. They are all known as the Bat Pokémon.
  • Zubat can be seen as a parallel to Noibat, as they are both Flying-type Pokémon based on bats and can have Infiltrator as a possible Ability. They also share the same base stats, with their Attack and Special Attack switched around.
  • Zubat and its previous evolutionary forms are the only Pokémon (other than Mew) that are capable of learning Brave Bird whose designs aren't at least partially inspired by birds.

Origin

Zubat seems to be based on a bat, particularly vampire bats, which bite other animals to feed on their blood. Its Poison-type may be inspired by either the anticoagulant properties of vampire bat saliva or the fact that bats are infamous for spreading deadly diseases such as rabies. Its lack of eyes could be a reference to troglomorphism and may additionally be influenced by the misconception that bats are blind due to their use of echolocation to navigate. The claim that Zubat will suffer burns when exposed to sunlight may be inspired by mythological vampires.

Name origin

Zubat may be a pun based on both bat and ずばっと zubatto (the sound of an edged tool forcefully piercing something; referring to its sharp fangs).

In other languages

Language Title Meaning
Japan Flag.webp Japanese ズバット Zubat From bat and ずばっと zubatto, an onomatopoeia for when an edged tool forcefully pierces something
France Flag.webp French Nosferapti From Nosferatu, another word for vampire. The "pti" comes from petit, to go with the alto in Golbat's French name
Spain Flag.webp Spanish Zubat Same as English/Japanese name
Germany Flag.webp German Zubat Same as English/Japanese name
Italy Flag.webp Italian Zubat Same as English/Japanese name
South Korea Flag.webp Korean 주뱃 Zubat Transliteration of Japanese name
Hong Kong Flag.webp Cantonese Chinese 波音蝠 Bōyāmfūk Means "Mordent bat". May also be taken from 音波 yāmbō or 波音 Bōyām
