All Bat Pokemon

All Bat Pokemon

Usually, when people think of a bat-type pokemon, the first name which appears in their mind is Zubat. It was the very first bat pokemon to appear in the scene with the first 150 Pokemon.

However, there are many other bat-type Pokemons to choose from as well. In this guide, we will look through these options. So without further ado, let’s jump on the bandwagon. 

Zubat – Generation 1

  • HP: 40
  • Speed:    55   
  • Attack:    45
  • Special Attack: 40   
  • Defense: 35   
  • Special Defense: 40   

Zubat is one of the well-known bats in Pokemon Go, with a catch rate of 50%. In appearance, Zubat is a blue chiropteran Pokemon. It does not have any eyes. But does have two sharp teeth on each jaw along with pointed ears on its head. 

Golbat – Generation 1

  • HP: 75
  • Speed:    90   
  • Attack:    80
  • Special Attack: 75   
  • Defense: 70   
  • Special Defense: 75   

Golbat is one of the most intimidating Pokemon around. It evolved from Zulbat and is a large blue bat-like creature. It has dark purple wing membranes which are supported by powerful muscles. These muscles can produce sonic booms. Despite its appearance and size, it has small eyes which have slit pupils. However, they are good nonetheless and can be used to catch any prey at night or in dark areas.

Crobat – Generation 2

  • HP: 85
  • Speed:    130   
  • Attack:    90
  • Special Attack: 70   
  • Defense: 80   
  • Special Defense: 80   

Crobat slithers through the skies by alternating between its upper and lower wings. This helps to fly long distances. Due to its powerful ears and mouth, it can seek its prey from a distance with ease.

Other than that, there are a few unique moves by Crobat. Like “pluck”, which allows it to steal a berry off of its opponent. Also, Crobat can learn “taunt” which is a move that can make any of its opponents distressed. This will lower their defense system. Crobat has access to “super Fang”. By using its fang the opponent will get a hard hit.

Gligar – Generation 2

  • HP: 65
  • Speed:    85   
  • Attack:    75
  • Special Attack: 35   
  • Defense: 105   
  • Special Defense: 65   

Gligar shares some resemblance to a typical bat. Gligar has two large teeth which protrude from its upper jaw. And has an unconcerned look on its face most of the time. It has triangular eyes which have small pupils like the majority of bats have. Gligar has pointy ears and thin legs which are split into spherical sections with claws at their end. Its tail is much like a scorpion stinger. 

Gligar is unique as its ability “Hyper Cutter” gives protection against other Pokemon. Since Gligar has low base attack stats, the Hyper Cutter ability is a handy tool.

  • Speed: 95   
  • Attack: 95
  • Special Attack: 45   
  • Defense: 125

Gliscor uses its tail for digging into the earth to find food. Or sometimes it also uses its tail as a weapon to stun its opponent in the battle. Gliscor doesn’t face any difficulty in terms of weakness which most bat Pokemon have against electric-type Pokemon.

Gliscor has an interesting move that can cause poison damage to its opponent. Also, a temporary speed boost allows it to inflict its opponents which makes the condition easier.
