Bats are incredible animals that are both beneficial to our environments and incredibly misunderstood. If the axolotl, bee, sea turtle, and panda mobs were all added to help spread awareness of their conditions in real life, then bats should get the same treatment.
Players have made it clear that they feel the bats are a waste of space that add nothing to the game. You can't even breed them. But in real life, they control pests, pollinate, spread crops, create substances used as gunpowder... there's SO much potential to make these iconic creatures become legitimately useful mobs that highlight how cool and helpful their real-life counterparts are.
Make them gain the ability to echolocate, or be tamed to attack arthropod mobs, or act as nocturnal bees, SOMETHING, ANYTHING. I've loved bats my whole life and want the rest of the world to understand how amazing these creatures are, especially since they're facing so many threats.
The potential is endless. There are so many bats on Earth, with so many abilities. They could be some of the most unique, helpful mobs in the game. Please, update bats.
