In the title you said that you want the squid invisible, is this a mistake? –  Caleb Aug 12 at 0:52
    
Yes sorry I'll edit now –  Mincraftduuuuude Aug 12 at 0:54
    
/summon Squid ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:"Bat"}} will get you a quid riding a bat. Not sure about the invincibility –  Studoku Aug 12 at 0:55

I'm working on it. Creating unholy abominations with the console commands takes time. –  Studoku Aug 12 at 0:58

/summon Squid ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:"Bat"},Invulnerable:1}

This summons an invincible squid riding a bat. The invincibility means the squid can't airdrown but the bat can still be killed.

If you want it to never despawn:

/summon Squid ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:"Bat"},Invulnerable:1,PersistenceRequired:1}

To name it Derp, you'd need:

/summon Squid ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:"Bat"},Invulnerable:1,CustomName:"Derp",PersistenceRequired:1,CustomNameVisible:1}

This is too long for the chat box however and it might be simpler just to spawn a Nametag and use that.

UPDATE: I took some info from the other answers and made this:

/summon Squid ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:"Bat",Invulnerable:1,PersistenceRequired:1,ActiveEffects:[{Id:14,Amplifier:-10,Duration:2147483648}]},Invulnerable:1,CustomName:"Derp",PersistenceRequired:1,CustomNameVisible:1}

Persistent invincible squid named Derp riding a persistent invisible invincible bat.

Fly my pretties, fly!

Squids

Minecraft is capable of so much more now than the last time I played... –  Batophobia Aug 12 at 14:32

It broke the game a bit: i.imgur.com/jDtkfBU.png –  Studoku Aug 13 at 13:53

A true flying squid would something like this, I think:

/summon Squid ~ ~1 ~ {CustomName:"Derp",CustomNameVisible:1,Invulnerable:1,PersistenceRequired:1,Riding:{id:"Bat",Invulnerable:1,PersistenceRequired:1,ActiveEffects:[{Id:14,Amplifier:-10,Duration:2147483647}]}}

Named, Invulnerable, Persitent, flying an invisible bat.

Have you tested this? –  Caleb Aug 12 at 9:13

Use this command.

/summon Squid ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{Id:"Bat"},Invulnerable:1}

Haven't had time to test it, but it should work. If that doesn't work, you can just summon without the invincibility.

/summon Squid ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{Id:"Bat"}}

It doesn't but I think this is on the right lines. –  Studoku Aug 12 at 1:12
    
" {ActiveEffects:[{Id: x ,Amplifier: x ,Durat­ion: x }]} " is this like on the right lines too? try it –  Mincraftduuuuude Aug 12 at 1:14
    
{ActiveEffects:[{Id:11 ,Amplifier:5 ,Durat­ion: x }]} Is this right? –  Mincraftduuuuude Aug 12 at 1:18
    
The problem isn't invincibility- it's getting a mob to ride something and be invincible without the syntax breaking. –  Studoku Aug 12 at 1:20
    
Oh ok I dont know as much with command blocks –  Mincraftduuuuude Aug 12 at 1:23
