Pokédex entries

Gold It flies so silently through the dark on its four wings that it may not be noticed even when nearby.
Silver The development of wings on its legs enables it to fly fast but also makes it tough to stop and rest.
Crystal As a result of its pursuit of faster, yet more silent flight, a new set of wings grew on its hind legs.
Ruby If this POKéMON is flying by fluttering only a pair of wings on either the forelegs or hind legs, it’s proof that CROBAT has been flying a long distance. It switches the wings it uses if it is tired.
Sapphire CROBAT sneaks up on its intended prey using wings that barely make a sound. This POKéMON rests by hanging on a tree branch with its rear legs that serve as wings.
FireRed The development of wings on its legs enables it to fly fast but also makes it tough to stop and rest.
LeafGreen It flies so silently through the dark on its four wings that it may not be noticed even when nearby.
Emerald Over the course of evolution, its hind legs turned into wings. By alternately resting its front and rear wings, it can fly all day without having to stop.
Diamond Having four wings enables it to fly faster and more quietly. It turns active when the night comes.
Pearl A Pokémon that gained vastly enhanced flying performance by having its legs turn into wings.
Platinum The transformation of its legs into wings made it better at flying, but more clumsy at walking.
HeartGold It flies so silently through the dark on its four wings that it may not be noticed even when nearby.
SoulSilver The development of wings on its legs enables it to fly fast but also makes it tough to stop and rest.

Omega Ruby If this Pokémon is flying by fluttering only a pair of wings on either the forelegs or hind legs, it’s proof that Crobat has been flying a long distance. It switches the wings it uses if it is tired.
Alpha Sapphire Crobat sneaks up on its intended prey using wings that barely make a sound. This Pokémon rests by hanging on a tree branch with its rear legs that serve as wings.
Sun Both its legs became wings, and as a result, it can’t move well on the ground. All it can do is crawl around.
Moon Silent and swift in its four-winged flight, it bites down on its prey before they realize what’s happening. In a heartbeat, it drains their blood.
Ultra Sun Its fangs are so sharp, if it bites you in the dark and sucks your blood, you won’t notice any pain or realize you’ve been bitten.
Ultra Moon It feeds on the blood of living people and Pokémon. If it can’t drink any blood for even a short while, it becomes weak and unable to fly.
