Overview

Crobat isn't worth using unless you're expecting to lose. All that Speed is wasted on a Pokémon without the moves to take advantage of it.

Name Item

Offensive

Leftovers
Moveset
~ Wing Attack
~ Hidden Power Ground / Hidden Power Fighting
~ Toxic / Return
~ Screech

Hidden Power Ground hits those Electrics who think Crobat is a free switch in, as well as Poisons, but Hidden Power Fighting can be used to cover the common Normal-types, Umbreon, Tyranitar, and Houndoom. If you choose Hidden Power Fighting, you'll definitely want Return to hit Electric-types, but if you use Hidden Power Ground, Toxic vs. Return is a toss-up.

Name Item

Toxic Staller

Leftovers
Moveset
~ Confuse Ray
~ Toxic
~ Wing Attack / Hidden Power Flying / Fly
~ Mean Look

So this is what you've got. Confuse Ray + Toxic is probably how you'll do most of your damage. Your Flying attack won't do much. Wing Attack and Hidden Power Flying do more damage over time, but Fly stalls for time. Mean Look to trap whatever gets hit by Toxic and make sure it doesn't leave. Don't expect much when you use Crobat.

Other Options

With 358 Speed, Flail isn't such a bad idea, with only a handful of things as fast as Crobat or faster. Giga Drain works if you really don't like Rhydon, Golem, and Quagsire. Pursuit might be a fun surprise. Mimic because a Spiking Crobat is a sight to see. Steel Wing nails Aerodactyl if it likes switching in on you. Hidden Power Bug can do a bit extra to Exeggutor, but it doesn't do too much more than Hidden Power Flying.

Checks and Counters

Any Steel-type stops Crobat cold. Gengar counters it, as well as most Rock / Ground types. Crobat can't do anything to Nidoking and Nidoqueen, or any Poison-type for that matter. A sturdy Pokémon like Snorlax with Rest screws Crobat as well.
