A Useless Note (that isn't mine this time)
Whoever put up "Crobat has a higher Speed stat than Arceus," don't. It's not worth noting. Several Pokémon have a higher Speed stat than Arceus, including Aerodactyl, Weavile, and so on. SharKing 23:31, 6 September 2008 (UTC)SharKing
- It was MetalMetroid... oy. I guess he thought that since it's on Arceus's page that, despite having the highest total base stats, it still has lower base stats than others, it was worth mentioning... Here's a hint, though: It's not. TTEchidna 00:24, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
- Oy, indeed. Putting up "[INSERT POKÉMON NAME HERE] has a higher [INSERT STAT NAME HERE] stat than [INSERT POKÉMON NAME HERE]" is just plain unnecessary. SharKing 19:49, 8 September 2008 (UTC)SharKing
Well, what if it's "[INSERT POKéMON NAME HERE] has the highest/higher [INSERT STAT/HEIGHT/WEIGHT HERE] out of all/than [INSERT POKéMON'S CATEGORY OR RELATED POKéMON HERE]" like with Typhlosion and Charizard, or several things written on Feraligatr - unsigned comment from Sk8torchic (talk • contribs)
This drawing is part of the Ken Sugimori's official artwork of Crobat, and he drew feet too! I wonder what where they thinking when they wrote Silver and Crystal pokédex entries... hfc2X 21:00, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
The Generation III Shiny sprites are missing for all games. Just throwing that out there -MiekL94 22:59, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
- |heartgolddex=It flies so silently through the dark on its four wings that it may not be noticed even when nearby.

I think this is mentioned in other trivia sections, but I could be wrong: Crobat (If my memory serves) is never depicted as being 5'11, in the anime, or some of the older 3D games. Again, this could be memory failure or a fact not worth mentioning. -InferSizMamoMagne July 25 21:41 (UTC)
"Since its debut in Generation II, Crobat's color scheme has been Golbat's color scheme, inverted. This also applies to its shiny variation. ˇ" - Not so true for Crystal - Normal Golbat is only blue there (while in G/S it was purple/blue). Marked +-+-+ 16:09, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Highest Base Stat Total
The article claims that Crobat is the only Pokémon to have the highest BST out of its type that is not legendary. What about Ninjask, who has the highest speed of all bug or flying types, or Slacking having the highest Attack of all normal types, or any of several others? Poisson14 05:00, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
- BST means base stat total, not a single base stat. No Poison-type Pokémon has higher BST than Crobat, whereas many Bug and Flying types have higher BST than Ninjask, and Arceus's BST is higher than Slaking's.--電禅Den Zen 08:44, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
- Ah, right. Poisson14 09:18, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Should it be noted that Crobat has the highest base speed of all Generation II Pokémon; at 130? Venus253 18:10, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
Is it really? I just thought the trivia mentioned it being the fastest poison type. Venus253 18:32, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks; this would be my first contribution if added. :) Venus253 14:11, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
- Because it's self-evident. You can see it for yourself without a trivia point to tell it to you. Also, as indicated by the move descriptions, all that's really needed for the moves is skillful flying, which bats are perfectly capable of doing. Crystal Talian 00:48, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
Cross Poison at Level 1 in Gen IV
Maybe I'm missing something simple and obvious here, but I'm genuinely puzzled.
It says in Crobat's move list (Gen IV) that it learns Cross Poison at Level 1. The page for "Cross Poison" confirms this. My question is, how do you get this to happen in the Gen IV games? Breeding will only result in a Zubat and Zubat, apparently, can't learn Cross Poison - neither does Golbat - and you can't catch Crobat in the wild either.
Game Locations section needs an update
The game locations section for Crobat still lists it as being unobtainable in sword and shield, despite being in the crown tundra pokedex.
