How can you check the happiness
Cross Stinger answered:

Make it friendly towards you....

ilovemissyelliott answered:

It has to be friendly with you.

spiral-man answered:

He will evolve when he is happy.

Gamefan2006 answered:

The Golbat needs to feel friendly with you. Keep it in the front of the party, don't let it faint, and let it win battles.

dark_blaziken answered:

When it trust you go to verdanturf and put golbat infront of your team and go to the house of the girl with a pikachu and she will say it trust you an level your golbat and BOOM a crobat

Umm they are all right, yours was happy when it evolved
Guest said: 31st May 2012 | REPORT
I personally think golbat is a strong pokemon to have
Tinnier said: 9th Jul 2012 | REPORT
ironically they aren't wrong. probably a late response n all but yeah i'm a very knowledgable pokemon player and it evolves when it's friendliness is maxed. give it a soothe bell, make sure you raise it from ZUBAT up, and use it in battles the most and if you want it even easier catch it with a luxury ball. it should become a crobat in no time if you do at least most of those steps.
Guest answered:

cant give it any berries because I heard that if you give it berries it will lower it's happiness
Guest answered:

all you have to do is get the lowest golbat you can then give it rare candies and battle with it also give it berries.

It is the same in Soul Silver & Heart Gold/Silver & Gold as it is for Ruby,Sapphire,Emerald the best way to do it in my opinion is to catch a zubat early in the game evolve it and use it as your first party pokemon battle with it give it stay boosters win with it though do not let it faint much switch to a new pokemon or health item for help if you can't switch out to avoid fainting, gaining will severely set you back on your crobat goal just rock and roll like that for a decent while 8-12 levels and try to see how the lady in the house under battle tent in city after isle gym (2nd) and have golbat in front of your party if she says anything about it loving you text give it a rare candy or level up once more and boom crobat baby
Guest answered:

U need it to love you
Stop fighting!!!!!!!!!!!I'm with the kid that says you need A G-

Guest answered:

Glad to see you are trying to evolve your Golbat.
You evolve it by either trading or by giving it happiness just like evolving Pichu into Pikachu. Hope this helped!

Guest answered:

I have a golbat too triying to evolve it I feel your pain just level it up give it items then go to verdanturf town go in to the house in the southwest corner and you find out how much it loves you (put in the top of your party.)if it says something like,'it must love you a lot' then just level it up and then you have a crobat. P.S.I love Pokemon

actually im the guy who wrote this i forgot to write my name its mikeshock
Guest answered:

Ive done this and the best way would probaly have to be by catching a zubat, getting massages and let it defeat weak Pokemon and evolve it into golbat. Keep giving it massages and other stuffs like a few rare candies if you need but it's not neccessary.also walking with it makes it friendly but that doesn't mean just running up and down a route will evolve's easier to evolve if you've had it since the beginning. Its a drag getting it but it's worth it.

Guest answered:

In Pokemon pearl I got a golbat lv. 59 it dosent frickin love me and level up and boom crobat

Guest answered:

You just catch a low level gold bat go to ventaurf sorry for the spelling
And ask the girl in the very right bottom house put gold bat in the front of your party and if she says that it seems to be very it obviously likes you a whole lot just keep on giving it pokeblocks and keep leveling it up then it should evolve in no time. Just here to help. :D
P.S:to make it like you allways keep goldbat in front of your party and keep on moving around any place cause if you move around with it it will start to like you :D

My golbat is a lvl.54 it does not evolve
Guest answered:

I caught a zubat at level 7 and I trained it a lot, I put it at the first place of my party,gave it a few proteins and it never lost a battle. I went to the Pokemon center every time it was hurt and gave it berries to hold. It evolved in golbat at level 22 and in crobat at level 30. You know it will evolve when the lady in the house with the pikachu in Verdanturf tells you: It seems to be very happy. It likes you a lot.

my golbat evolved at level 57
Guest answered:

Give it soothe bell to hold. It will become happy fastly. This should be done along with never letting it faint for the whole day.

Guest answered:

You need to evolve it completey through love 100% mine evolved at level 35

Guest answered:

Hey guys,

Can I level Golbat by using the exp. Share? Or is it important that he fights himself? Has someone managed to do it with the exp. Share?


Tinnier answered:

The most effective things to do to get crobat, which some might find not worth it are the following: catch a zubat with a luxury ball. Give it a soothe bell and trainwith it. If it's too weak to fight full battles alone, it's ok to switch it out for a battle or two, as long as it WINS the battle, (finishes the last Pokemon off). Feed it poffins berry juice or w/e types of stat enhancing item they have on the game you want crobat for. I think it's pokeblocks or something for ruby/sapphire/emerald, poffins for diamond/pearl/maybe platinum, and I forgot what it was for soulsilver,heartgold, I think it's berry juice. And keep it in the first slot of your party, as well as compete in some contests or take it for walks if you can on that game and it'll definately evolve quickly. Mine only took 15 levels from the level zubat I had it to golbat 2 levels later then 13 more levels it was a crobat. Now it's a happy level 100 and in the PC with the other 300 or so legit Pokemon I trained and evolved.

KnockEmDead1996 answered:

Golbat evolves into a crobat through the stages of friendliness and happiness. If you are very friendly to your golbat and use it in battle a lot, it will begin to trust you and once it fully trusts you, it will evolve into crobat, which is one of my personal favorites.

I hope this helped.

Guest answered:

The best way to level it up is take it to the pet groomer a couple of times and level it up to level 23, at level 22 zubat will evolve into golbat. If you take it to the groomer a couple of times it should evolve again at 23.
