Phosbats return in Pikmin: Infection in Progress, appearing in one area only, Fungal Grotto, in which a large quantity is present. The largest group is encountered in the back-left clearing in Fungal Grotto, with twenty-seven Phosbats crowding it. Defeating them all initiates the boss fight with the Vehemoth Phosbat. They do not perish when exposed to light, and if forced to, a Phosbat will waddle slowly through it with its eyes squinted.

Phosbats look almost identical to their Pikmin 3 incarnation, except for a few small differences. Their pupils glow white in the dark, contract when seeing predators or light, and dilate when looking at and biting toward prey. Small, glowing, neon-colored spores from Fungal Grotto dot the hair on their face.

When initiated into combat, a Phosbat will alternate between quick hops and waddling toward its prey. Once it reaches its opponent, a Phosbat will typically strafe around it while biting. Phosbats are easily vanquished, and swarming them will defeat them very easily. They are similar to Bulborb Larvae in that they can rapidly eat Pikmin.
