Crobat, The Bat Pokémon. It flies silently through the dark with it's 4 wings. It is so quite, it wont be noticed, even by people nearby. With the wings thayt developed on it's legs, it enables it to fly faster, but it makes it harder for Crobat to stop and Rest. If it is flying with only one set of wings, it is proof that it has been flying a long distance. It hangs on trees using it's back legs/wings.

Strategy Using Crobat

I, personally don't like the annoyer set, well, because I've never had much luck with it, but thats just me. Anyways, Crobat is a cool pokemon with awesome speed and its other stats aren't too bad either.
Its weaknesses include Ice, Rock, Psychic and electric attacks. Shadow ball, Sludge bomb, Aerial ace and HP Ground cover quite a variety of pokemon types and with an extra boost in strength from Choice band, they should be more powerful.
Sludge bomb and Aerial ace also gains a boost from STAB. Other than that, its a simple moveset that doesn't really need explaining.
Boost Crobat's EV's into attack and speed, although you may not need to put that much extra into its speed since its high already, maybe instead split them into its defenses.
Also, the nature Adamant is useful here too since it doesn't use any special attacks and so that is lowered while boosting its attack.
Crobat is a decent pokemon, but it can't take many hits and if you do come up against something that could hit this pokemon first, then its most likely that Crobat will faint.

EV Corner:
