This Golbat is a poison/flying-type Pokémon owned by Koga.



Golbat battled Ash's Charmander. Golbat used its speed to try and gain the advantage and also used Screech to lower Charmander's defensive abilities but was defeated when Charmander hit it with Ember and then used Fire Spin to knock it out, resulting in Ash winning the match and also the Soul Badge.[1]


The Gym Battle was remembered by Ash, who explained his Charizard's past to Iris, Cilan and N.[2]
