How to find and catch Pokémon Crobat?

Crobat Pokémon may be found in parks and marshes. It is possible to capture it in squares, fields, and woods, meadows and countryside, around overgrown lakes, industrial regions, and near industries.

Pokemon Crobat comes on the map rather seldom, yet it often participates in events. You may also get it via evolution. Golbat is a Pokemon.



Crobat is a tiny, spherical, purple chiropteran Pokémon. It features long, pointed ears, bright eyes with crimson pupils, and a tiny mouth with bared fangs. It has two pairs of wings on its body: an upper pair that is somewhat bigger than the lower pair that formed from its rear legs. Both sets of membranes are green-blue, however the bottom pair’s membranes are only visible from the rear. Near the center of the upper wings are two claw-like fingers. It seems to have stubby feet or fur tufts on the bottom of its body.

Crobat can fly vast distances by switching between its two sets of wings. The additional pair of wings has also increased its flying speed while maintaining its ability to fly quietly. It can even move into small caverns without stopping. Its quiet flying and powerful fangs let it to bite down on victims and suck their blood without being observed. It gets sluggish and unable to fly if it is unable to swallow blood. It is ungainly on the ground and can only crawl about with its wings since it lacks legs. Crobats are seldom seen in the wild, preferring to live in caves or on tree branches, where they hang upside-down by their back wings.


The Pokemon Crobat is one of the numerous creatures that may be captured in Pokemon Go. See the conditions for evolving a Golbat into a Crobat here. Crobat is from Johto’s second generation and was included in the February 16, 2017 update.
