The Zubat lives in small flocks. They are completely blind, but hunt by using sonar. The game places them in caves, though I would rather guess they live in trees, since they have no claws to be able to cling onto cavewalls. The tentacles are however perfect for catching branches, much like a aircraft does to land on a hangar ship.

Those are legs people! Not just things sticking out of its B - U - T - T! ... Cool drawing. But where do you think it's eyes are? It either doesnt have 'em, the eyes are in its mouth, or the eyes are in it's ears. By the way, Anonymous, you are SICK!!! Why would you think that this guy would draw a B - U - T - T on the zubat? YOU ARE PERVERTED! .... Anonymous is perverted, that is...

Counter mutation also explains why there are always new species of pokemon being discovered. There will always be new pokemon because counter mutation both creates new pokemon and new evolutionary stages for existing pokemon.

My thoughts:
Subat (if you view the anime pics) doesnt really have hair.
Light sensetivity is because the subat spends its larval stage in dark caves developing untill it has one final mutation, evolution. And even then, golbat is fairly light sensetive. All the new body parts and proccesses take hold during this proccess.

Pokemon (i heard this from a hardcore fan who told me it was said in the show) are all derived from the same bass species. From this info about the actual concept i suppose the first pokemon was a creature that was prone to mutations. This explains the complex life cycle as well as the diversity of pokemon. How have pokemon survived if they are so prone to mutation? Counter mutation. When a mutation happens in a pokemon that is bad, the immune system will actually change it into an advantage, or rebuild the pokemon's faulty feature. Subat is an example of counter mutation of faulty body parts being rebuilt. Counter mutated pokemon are stronger after evolution than the origional, and thus become the species.

In charmander (again i gather this from the origional illustration) there are two knobs on the back, a mutation that wouldnt be helpful or hurtful. The countermutation? These stubs are caused to further mutate into wings, with wings charmander/charmelion becomes charizard and thus survives better than adult charmander (who die) the result is a species of charmander that evolves into charizard. The fire breathing ability is a result of countermutation as well.

It's nice. I would think those aren't tentacles, but like you said, something to cling to trees. Or maybe lined with tiny pricks, to hang off walls. Hmm... oh well. Nice picture anyway. Zubat is a personal favorite.
