How To Evolve Golbat In Pokemon Sword And Shield Crown Tundra DLC

The Crown Tundra DLC for Pokemon Sword & Shield is now available now and it has brought cut Pokemon back into the series. Here is how to evolve Golbat in the Crown Tundra DLC.

Bats have been haunting Pokemon players since the days of Pokemon Red & Blue. Few players will forget the agony of trekking through Mt. Moon and being barraged by Zubat encounters. It also didn’t help that Golbat had one of the most messed-up sprites of the first generation of games. The line received some love in the later games, when Golbat gained a powerful evolution, in the form of Crobat.

Zubat, Golbat & Crobat

Zubat, Golbat, and Crobat are all Poison/Flying-type Pokemon. Crobat has middling stats, except for its exceptional Speed score, which means that it can outpace a lot of enemy Pokemon and can hit for a ton of damage with Brave Bird. Unfortunately, the entire Zubat line has a X2 weakness to Rock-type moves, which makes them susceptible to Stealth Rock damage.

Where To Catch The Bats

The Zubat line has returned in the Crown Tundra, following its removal from Pokemon Sword & Shield during ‘Dexit. According to Serebii, Zubat can be found in Tunnel to the Top, Roaring-Sea Caves, and Lakeside Cave areas. It can also be encountered in Max Raid Battles in Frostpoint Field, Giant’s Bed, Frigid Sea, Ballimere Lake, and Dyna Tree Hill. Golbat can be found in the same places mentioned above, except for Lakeside Cave. Zubat needs to reach level 22 before it can evolve into Golbat.

How To Evolve Golbat

In order to evolve Golbat into Crobat, you need to deal with the awful Friendship mechanic, which has someone lingered since the days of Pokemon Gold & Silver. The quickest way to do this is to catch a Zubat/Golbat with a Friend Ball or a Luxury Ball and equip it with a Soothe Bell, which can be found in Hammerlocke. Keeping the Golbat in your party and using them in battle will increase their Friendship quickly, as will playing with them in the Pokemon Camp. Once its Friendship stat has been sufficiently raised, you need to increase Golbat’s level by one to evolve it into Crobat.

The Crown Tundra DLC for Pokemon Sword & Shield is available for Nintendo Switch now.
