The Phosbat is a creature found in Pikmin 3, and is the infant form of the Vehemoth Phosbat. It bears some notable resemblances to the adult form, including its orange wings, black, hairy head, and big bulging eyes that squint when exposed to light. The noises the Phosbat emits is also similar to that of the adult form. Its legs are stumpy, similar to those of the adult, but it lacks proper arms. It also lacks fluorescent lights upon its head, and only two fangs are visible in its mouth.
Phosbats are first found by Charlie in the Distant Tundra, being the first enemy to be seen in the game, and are later encountered again by Alph and Brittany, during the fight with the Vehemoth Phosbat, where they are spawned by Phosbat Pods. The pods are only activated after two of the smaller lights have been turned on, so it is possible, and preferable, not to encounter the Phosbats during this battle. After the boss is defeated, the pods close up and Phosbats are not encountered for the remainder of the game.

Pikmin: Infection in Progress
|Underground Areas|| Fungal Grotto|
Phosbats return in Pikmin: Infection in Progress, appearing in one area only: Fungal Grotto, in which a large quantity are present. The largest group is encountered in the back-left clearing in Fungal Grotto, with twenty-seven Phosbats crowding the clearing. Defeating them all initiates the boss fight with the Vehemoth Phosbat. Not much of difference exists between Phosbats in Pikmin 3 and Pikmin: Infection in Progress other than small details, and the fact that they no longer perish when contacting light. If forced to, a Phosbat will waddle slowly through it, its eyes barely open. The President cannot carry Phosbat corpses because their bodies cannot be retrieved.
Phosbats look almost identical to what they do in Pikmin 3, except for a few small differences. Their pupils now glow bright white in the dark, and their pupils contract severely when spotting a hostile force or peering at light. Its pupils will expound noticeably when looking at an enemy and biting towards it. Small spores that glow neon colors now dot the hair on their heads, originating from the incredible amount of fungi growing in Fungal Grotto.
When initiated into combat, a Phosbat will alternate between quick hops and waddling towards its prey. Once it reaches its opponent, a Phosbat will typically strafe around it while biting. Phosbats are easily vanquished, and swarming will defeat them very easily. Their attacks are almost identical to that of Bulborb Larvae in that it can quickly eat Pikmin.
