OK, I see that Dark Crobat is a pretty good card.. only one problem:
HIS PRE-EVOLUTION ISNT LEGAL!!!!!!

Ever wonder why no one plays him? Dark Golbat isn't legal in Modified, so no one CAN!
Think tho - both of them have a Power that does damage to a Pokemon when they get played. Golbat does 10 damage and Crobot does 20 damage. In two turns you could deal 30 damage without attacking! To add more combo, try throwing Elekid or something with it. 50 damage without an attack. Then, use Super Scoop Up and return them all to you hand to start all over!

So how do you get Dark Golbat legal again? Wait for a Base Set 3?

you could use pokemon breeder but if they play slowking you're in trouble. I think that wizards should have stuck a dark golbat in destiny though. that would've been awesome.

Yup, Pokemon Breeder is the only way to get it.

Scyther is fast, but not as fast as Scizor.

Scyther is strong, but not as strong as Scizor.

Scyther has a few attacks, but Scizor has more attacks.

Scyther is a Grass Pokemon, Scizor is not(HAHAHA!!!)

I heard that Dark Golbat was suppose to be released in the legendary collection and was accidently forgotten, Maybe Wizards can make a ruling that the card is Ok to use in Modified.

What might happen is what many people are saying would never happen... Dark Golbat could be made into a Promo card!

Seriously! I mean, if they can make Base Electabuzz a promo, surely they can bridge the Dark Crobat evolutionary gap in a similar manner.

since the released base buzz as a promo there's a pretty big chance that we may see dark golbat as a promo sometime in the future...

Dark Crobat was going to be my tournament deck.

No one would be happier than I would if they made a promo Dark Golbat. NOBODY.

They made base Electabuzz a promo? when?

You guys missed my point up top, I was saying, the Dark Golbat COMBINED with Dark Crobat would be good. I think it would be pointless to just evolve Zubat once..

Electabuzz formerly from Base soon to be a promo will be in the first BattleZone kit. Misdreavous will be the Classic Promo and "winner" stamped Electabuzz will be the first new promo.

Oh, and don't hold your breath waiting for a promo Dark Golbat..... [Evil Smirk]
