I’ve been struggling to find Noibat in Pokemon X&Y. According to Serebii, Noibat can be found in Terminus Cave and Victory Road. However, after hours of walking around the cave, I just was not able to find Noibat. What was I doing wrong?

It turns out, I was doing things wrong. Noibat cannot be encountered by normal means (i.e walking around). Noibat is one of the select Pokemon, that swoop from the ceilings. Unfortunately, this encounter is rare not to mention the encounter rate for Noibat is low.

I caught my Noibat in Terminus Cave after 45 minutes of grinding through the cave. There is no real method to the madness – the trick is to walk around until a Pokemon swoops from the ceiling. Just cross your fingers that a Noibat appears.

Now, some of you are wondering – what is so special about Noibat? Well, its final evolution is the sleek Noivern which is in my opinion one of the coolest looking Pokemon introduced in X&Y.
