Swoobat (ココロモリ Kokoromori) is a Psychic/Flying type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Swoobat is a large fuzzy bat-like Pokémon. It shares many traits with its pre-evolution Woobat. It sports just a slightly larger pair of wings and they share a heart-shaped nostril on their noses. However, Swoobat is a much darker shade of blue and has a clear pair of eyes, fused-together ears, a chubby, spherical torso, and legs. It also has a strangely shaped tail and tuft of white fur around its neck. Whenever it flies, its legs are tucked under its body and only its feet are shown.

Natural Abilities

Swoobat is able to emit sound waves of varying intensity. Stronger sound waves emitted by Swoobat are able to destroy rocks. However, if a much more powerful wave is emitted, Swoobat will lose its energy and lack of flight for a brief moment.

Evolution

Swoobat is the evolved form of Woobat. It evolves after leveling up with high friendship.

Appearances

Anime

A flock of Swoobat appeared in Emolga and the New Volt Switch! when Iris was trying to catch Emolga. They produced very noisy sound waves and were using Round to do widespread damage.

Trivia

  • Woobat and Swoobat are the only Unova Pokémon that evolve by Friendship, not level up or trade.

Origin

Like its pre-evolution, Swoobat is likely based on the Honduran white bat, or the heart-nosed bat.

Etymology

Swoobat comes from swoon (to be filled with great emotion, usually described with love) and bat.

Its Japanese name, Kokoromori, comes from kokoro (heart) and komori (bat).
