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 four pointed teeth. There are two teeth on both the upper and lower jaws, and a male will have larger fangs than the female. It has purple wing membranes support by two, elongated fingers, and two long, thin, tails.

Zubat lives in abundance in caves. It has evolved to have neither eyes nor nostrils, instead navigating through dark environments 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. 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.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as the Zubat evolutionary family.
  • Zubat's evolutionary line seems to have a connection with Woobat's family. All the members of both lines are Bat Pokémon species (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 evolutionary relatives share their category with Woobat. They are all known as the Bat Pokémon.
  • Zubat, along with Golbat, has appeared in every regional Pokédex. This is due to the Unova Pokédex's expansion in Black 2 and White 2.
  • Zubat and Golbat are the only Pokémon to appear in the lineup of every villainous team in the main series games.
  • Zubat can be seen as a parallel to Noibat in several ways.
    • They can have Infiltrator as a possible ability.
    • They are Flying-type Pokémon.
    • They have exactly the same base stats with only their Attack and Special Attack swapped.

Origin

Zubat's design is inspired by bats. Its lack of eyes may come from the misconception that bats are blind.

Name origin

Zubat may be a pun based on both bat and ずばっと zubatto, an onomatopoeia for when an edged tool forcefully pierces something (possibly referring to its fangs or the sound a bat makes).

In other languages

Japan Flag.png 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.png French Nosferapti From Nosferatu, another word for vampire. The "rapti" part may come from the root "rapt" which relates to predatory characteristics. The "pti" may come from petit, to go with the alto in Golbat's French name
Spain Flag.png Spanish Zubat Same as English/Japanese name
Germany Flag.png German Zubat Same as English/Japanese name
Italy Flag.png Italian Zubat Same as English/Japanese name
