How to evolve Golbat into Crobat in Pokémon GO


Pokémon GO was a smash hit when it first came out, breaking all sorts of concurrent player records for the Pokémon franchise all over the world!

As is with every Pokémon game, players are tasked with searching for Pokémon to capture and collect, using them to battle other Pokémon, be it against the AI or against other players. The difference with Pokémon GO is that it utilizes the player’s phone GPS to find and capture Pokémon!

The game has been expanding its roster since its humble release with the original 151 Pokémon all the way to modern times. Of those 151 original Pokémon, some were more popular than the rest. Today we will be talking about Crobat and how to acquire it in Pokémon GO!


Crobat is a Gen-2 Pokémon released first in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. In Pokémon GO, it was released as part of the Johto update that was the first major update since the initial 151 Pokémon were released.

Crobat is the evolved form of Golbat, which itself evolves from Zubat. Most players find Zubat to be highly annoying in regular Pokémon games because of their crazy encounter rate in most cave locations. In Pokémon GO, getting a Zubat isn’t as easy, but raising it all the way to Crobat is well worth the time spent.

How to get Crobat

As mentioned before, Crobat evolves from Golbat, which evolves from Zubat. After the player has acquired a Zubat, they need to feed it with 25 Candy to evolve it into a Golbat. After this, Golbat needs to be fed with an additional 100 Candy to evolve it into Crobat.

Being a speedy Poison/Flying-type Pokémon with great attack stats makes this Pokémon valuable and fit a lot of different niche lineups in competitive gaming as well, being able to counter Fairy types in addition!
