PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Wing Attack + Shadow Ball and Poison Fang or Ominous Wind*

Wing Attack is the preferred fast move, featuring above average energy generation while also getting STAB from Golbat. 

Shadow Ball is the most powerful charge move available to Golbat, and is almost mandatory if Golbat is to ever threaten its opponents at all. The rest of Golbat's charge moves are all lackluster in performance and deal poor damage, but Poison Fang and legacy Ominous Wind cost less energy and can be used for shield baiting. Air Cutter sucks for its high energy cost even with STAB. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2.5 / 5

Golbat is more of a niche pick in Great League. Well-rounded stats don't result in extraordinary bulk, and weaknesses to common typings risks Golbat's survivability. Golbat also has issues with its somewhat poor moveset, as its charge moves deal little damage for their cost (low DPE) with the exception of Shadow Ball. Regardless, Golbat still makes short work of its specific prey in the form of Grass, Bug, and Fighting-types. Easy wins over the popular Medicham and Venusaur are definitely appreciated, while demanding two shields to beat Azumarill is risky. Unfortunately more losses than wins often keeps Golbat from being picked over other options. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Golbat's max CP of 1976 limits its use to mostly Great League. It can still dominate Grass-types and some other off-meta Pokemon, but a long list of losses against meta picks discourages its use. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Consider Golbat's next evolution at least.
