Zubat (ズバット) is the 41st Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Poison/Flying Type, and it is known as the Bat Pokémon.

Zubat uses the Inner Focus Ability. This Ability protects it from flinching, even if the opponent uses Fake Out. A second Ability is available to Zubat that come from the Dream World, the Infiltrator Ability. This Ability nullifies the opponents' defensive screens, such as Light Screen, Barrier or Reflect.

Zubat gains the opportunity to evolve into Golbat starting at Level 22. From Generation II onward, a Golbat that becomes loyal to its trainer and levels up will evolve into a Crobat. This is known as a Friendship Evolution.

Zubat is in the Flying Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes a Zubat One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
