Zubat is a small, blue bat-like Pokémon. It has two long, skinny legs. Zubat's face lacks any eyes and a nose. The insides of Zubat's ears and undersides of its wings are purple. Zubat's wings are supported by elongated 'fingers', and four teeth can be discerned from inside its mouth, two on the lower jaw and two on the upper. A Zubat's height is 2'07" and weight is 16.5 lbs.

Gender differences

A female has smaller fangs.

Special abilities

Though blind, they get around well with echolocation. They can also confuse foes with their high-pitched squeals.


Zubat is mostly nocturnal, forming colonies in perpetually dark places and hanging upside-down when asleep. When they awake, Zubat will constantly swarm around caves during the nighttime.


Since Zubat prefer the dark, their primary habitat is caves, although during the daytime Zubat may also stay under the eaves of old buildings or in forests. However, at night, they can be found roaming outside, usually for food. It has a very wide range which includes Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova and even Orre.

At night it goes in search of other fruits to suck the juices from, although the information is not documented as clearly as that of its evolution, Golbat.

Major appearances

Brock's Zubat

Brock had a Zubat that he caught in Clefairy and the Moon Stone at Mt. Moon. It later evolved into a Golbat and then a Crobat during the Johto saga.


One of Brock's love interests, Dr. Anna, used the Template:M soundwaves made by her Zubat (nicknamed Mimi) to scan her patients in Hassle in the Castle.

Minor appearances

Zubat are commonly found in any random caves in the anime, and sometimes outdoors at night.

Multiple Zubat also appeared in Destiny Deoxys and The Power of One.

Another group of Zubat appeared in Leading a Stray! and A Rivalry to Gible On!.
