Zubat and Golbat were introduced in Generation I, and the developers loved it so much that they gave it an evolution immediately in the next generation.
Generation II saw the introduction of Crobat, a menacing and very quick Poison / Flying type Pokemon that people immediately grew to love.
If you were wondering how to evolve Golbat in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, so that you can get your gorgeous Crobat, then you’re in the right place. Read on ahead to find out how!
How to Evolve Golbat into Crobat in the Pokemon BDSP Games
It doesn’t take a (team) rocket scientist to figure out how to evolve Golbat in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (…did you like our pun?)
It’s pretty simple actually. All you have to do is level up a Gobat with a high enough friendship level. Yeah, that easy! But how does one get their Golbat to a high friendship level anyways? That’s what we’ll be telling you below.
Keep in mind that if your Golbat was caught in a Luxury Ball, it will make the process of increasing its friendship even quicker! Here is how you increase your Golbat’s friendship:
- Win battles with Golbat.
- Don’t let Golbat faint.
- Keep Golbat in your party.
- Have Golbat participate in contests.
- Have Golbat hold a Soothe Bell.
Once you’ve been using the above methods, keep a note of your Golbat’s friendship level through the Friendship Checker app on your Poketch. If your Golbat shows two hearts in the app, that means that it is ready to evolve, and when you level it up, you should witness your Golbat evolving into a gorgeous Crobat!
