Noibat (オンバット Onbatto) is a Flying/Dragon-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Noibat is a small winged mammalian Pokémon that resembles a baby fruit bat. Its body is covered in purple fur of various shades, with black patches of scruffy fur encircling its neck and on its legs. Its scruffy head is light purple with a patch of dark purple fur just above its mouth. Noibat has large yellow ovular eyes with slit pupils. Its ears are quite large and round, with rings of dark purple and black on the insides. It has tiny black claws attached to its small light-purple wings. Dark purple flaps of skin connect its tiny wings to its body. Its belly is light purple, as well as its small dangling feet.

Behavior

Since it uses sound waves to detect the ripeness of fruit, it won't eat fruit that's sour resulting in it being a picky eater.

Special Abilities

Noibat has a great sense of hearing and it can attack with sound waves causing great damage to their opponents and for echolocation. It can use sound waves to tell whether a piece of fruit is ripe or not.

Evolution

Noibat evolves into Noivern at level 48.
