Appearances

Anime

Main article: Brock's Golbat

Golbat's first appearance in the anime was under the ownership of Koga, who used it during his gym battle against Ash's Charmander and lost. Brock would later see his Zubat evolve into Golbat in Hassle in the Castle.

Trivia

Etymology

  • Golbat comes from goliath and bat.

Origins

  • Golbat is based off of a vampire bat. It possibly gets its Poison typing because vampire bats secrete a substance from their saliva that prevent blood clots.
