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

It evolves from Woobat when leveled up with high friendship.

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. 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.

Swoobat's nose can produce many different ultrasonic waves. When it shakes its tail vigorously, it produces sound waves powerful enough to destroy concrete. In contrast, a male Swoobat produces waves during courtship that can gladden any who hears it. However, emitting these powerful sound waves can leave Swoobat exhausted, rendering it unable to fly for a short period of time. In the anime, it has been shown to hang from this tail rather than its feet as it sleeps. Swoobat's nose is considered to be a symbol of good luck in certain regions.
