Biology

Swoobat sleeping

Swoobat is a blue, bat-like Pokémon. It has fused, pointed ears with striated, lighter colored insides and a pink, heart-shaped snout with a single nostril. Swoobat's nose can produce many different ultrasonic waves. When it shakes its tail vigorously, it is producing sound waves powerful enough to destroy concrete. In contrast, it produces waves during courtship that can gladden any who hear it. Two wide, rounded teeth are visible in its lower jaw. A mane of shaggy, light blue fur surrounds its neck. Its black wings have a claw at the joint, and its small black feet have three toes each. It has a bare, pink tail that is twisted with two short prongs at the tip. In the anime, it is seen to hang from this tail rather than its feet as it sleeps.
