Swoobat (ココロモリ) is the 34th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Psychic/Flying-Type, and it is known as the Courting Pokémon.

Swoobat's two abilities are Unaware, which ignores the stat modifications of its opponents, and Klutz, which nullifies the effecs of all hold items on this Pokémon with the exception of hold items that affect experience, such as Experience Share or Macho Brace. A third Ability is available to Swoobat from the Dream World, the Simple Ability, which doubles the effectiveness of all stat modifications.

Swoobat evolved from Woobat when Woobat's happiness peaks at its maximum, and then levels up. This is also known as a Friendship evolution.

Swoobat is in the Egg Groups Field and Flying, and it takes approximately 3,840 steps to hatch its Egg. It takes Swoobat One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.




Swoobat takes the appearance of a bat with fur around its neck. Its pink nose has a heart-shaped pattern, and its tail looks like it has a C-shaped hook on it.

Gender Differences

Swoobat doesn't have any distinguishable characteristics to help differentiate between male and female.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Swoobat is listed in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling due to having sub-par defenses and typing that leaves something to be desired. It does have a high Speed; of all the Pokémon that can use both Reflect and Light Screen in the NU Tier it is the fastest, and can also use Calm Mind. Calm Mind won't work well without the right support, however.
