Scene from Zatoichi: On The Road

Everyone hates Zubat!  You can’t take one freaking step in a cave before a wild Zubat appears !!!

Not many players want to have a Zubat as a part of their team. They are extremely common, and are not exactly lovable.  Encountering them is just a status problem waiting to happen.

If those things stuck into you, you would get a status problem. The fangs I mean.

It may be possible to have fun with Zubat however.  I nicknamed a male Zubat — “Zatoichi” – after the Japanese movie hero Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman.  (Japanese actor Shintaro Katsu portrayed Zatoichi in 26 films.  I highly recommend watching them!) Zubat is blind (or nearly so), therefore a blind —  but powerful character seemed appropriate.   I captured Zatoichi in a premier ball (Movie stars should like being in a Premier), and taught it cutting moves like “Air Cutter”.  I leveled it up to 100, so it will forever be a Zubat* .

... a more cuddly Zubat?

… a more cuddly Zubat?

I have also used the name “Zuckerberg” after Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Facebook.  Or is he “Zuckerman” … I really don’t know. Also I like to use the name “Zimmerman” after Robert Zimmerman (a.k.a. Bob Dylan), and “Zip-Gun” after the term for an improvised handgun.

Either carry a lot of repels or get a dictionary and look under”Z”.

I named a female Zubat “Zelda” not after Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda game, but the character “Zelda Gilroy” in the classic American TV series The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. The character Zelda was always crinkling her nose at Dobie, much to his consternation.  Zelda was in love with Dobie, and always pestered him that they were destined to be married. Annoying, just like a Zubat!  Zelda Gilroy was played by child actress Sheila Kuehl.  A spin-off TV series for Zelda  was created, but the network cancelled it, because Ms. Keuel was a lesbian (too “butch” the network said).  Ms. Kuel left acting and eventually became a state senator in California, where she was a staunch advocate of  lesbian and gay rights. … but I digress  …

Zelda Gilroy ... as annoying as a Zubat?

Zelda Gilroy … as annoying as a Zubat?

Another name I suggest is “Boom Batz” as in Dr. Vinny Boombatz.

How about the name “DingBat” or “You Dingbat!” after what Archie Bunker used to yell at his wife Edith on the 1970s TV show “All-In-The-Family”.  Although I actually got the idea for Dingbat as a name while watching Nancy Pelosi on CNN. That lady is not connected to reality at all.

So it is possible, to warm up to a Zubat.  With that in mind, I present the following Zubat cosplay:

A wild Zubat appeared! .. and um … ah … um .. no problem …

* because I thought that Zubat’s evolution Golbat and Crobat did not remind me of Zatoichi.

UPDATE***07/22/2016

For Golbat , I have used the name “Gottffried” or “Gilbert” for the large-mouthed, loud, obnoxious-sounding comedian Gilbert Gottfried (his webpage link here). No, really, I like him, he was always good in his abrasive manner. When he does that routine, he looks like Golbat. How about “Goldman” as in Goldman-Sacs?

I also use the name “Bela” for both males and females. Bela could be for the famous Dracula movie actor Bela Lugosi, or for the females, think of the Bela character from the “Twilight” movie series.

I have also named Zubat Google.com or another website just to be silly when Wondertrading. “Denny sent over Google.com”. HA! I also think that “Zelda” is still good when you level up your Golbat to Crobat with high friendship!

  1. I think zubat is great. I think maybe… Something special, that shows hidden talent, hated but special, and so cute. I think you thould google something that means hated but special in a different language.
