Gliscor (Japanese: グライオン Glion) is a dual-type Ground/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Gligar when leveled up, at night, holding a Razor Fang.

Biology

Physiology

Gliscor are large, mainly bluish-purple vampire bat-like Pokémon. In evolution, the Gligar's leg-like claws have become more defined as legs, with two toes and a slightly darker circular coloration on the underside, and its tail now has two barbs, as opposed to Gligar's one, giving its tail the resemblance of vampire's fangs. Its arms are red with thin striations, and have also become completely detached from its wings, which are now black in coloration. It has similar looking pincers to Scizor. Gliscor's ears now have discernible, red-colored and apparently chambered ear insides, and its eyes are yellow. Gliscor appears much toothier than Gligar, having six visible fangs in its mouth instead of two, and its waist, like its arms, is red and striated. Gliscor's body resembles an open mouth, with the pointed protrusions coming from its upper torso appearing to be fangs, further illustrating its vampiric qualities.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Gliscor's abilities are the same as Gligar's, except Gliscor's attacks are more powerful and it can now learn the Elemental Fang attacks. As a fully evolved Pokémon, Gliscor can learn Hyper Beam and Giga Impact. It is capable of soundless flight.

As shown in Riding the Winds of Change!, Gliscor, along with its unevolved form Gligar, can emit a sort of sound wave in order to detect obstacles and fly around them, similar to echolocation. However, their legs appear to be not suitable for walking and can only preform short hops when on the ground.

Behavior

Gliscor hang upside down while sleeping, much like other bat-like Pokémon. In addition to this Gliscor, unlike Gligar, are nocturnal. While Gligar eat during the day they glide back to the colony's nest at night so the Gliscor can go out and hunt. Gliscor's wings cannot be flapped to the same extent that other Pokémon's wings can. Like Jumpluff and Wingull, Gliscor uses winds and updrafts to glide from place to place. Therefore it is not technically "flying". When there is no wind, Gliscor climbs to the top of tall trees using its sharp raptorial claws and then glides from place to place. This practice is similar to flying squirrels and also to the flying frogs and snakes of the Amazon and Congo Rainforests.

Habitat

They are extremely rare, but sometimes are found in thick pine forests and swamps.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

It observes prey while hanging inverted from branches, and when the chance presents itself, it swoops. It uses its lengthy tail to carry off prey, afterward using its elongated fangs to "do the rest" (presumably finish it off).

In the anime

Major appearances

Gliscor in the anime

Ash's Gliscor

Main article: Ash's Gliscor

Ash's Gligar evolved into a Gliscor in Fighting Fear With Fear! using Gary's Razor Fang to save Ash from falling into a canyon. Ash left Gliscor with McCann in Mastering Current Events! so it could train and grow stronger. Gliscor later returned in Working on a Right Move! to help Ash in the Lily of the Valley Conference.

Paul's Gliscor

Main article: Paul's Gliscor

Paul caught a Gliscor in Riding the Winds of Change!.

Minor appearances

A Gliscor was used by Theodore in the Pokémon Ping Pong Tournament in To Thine Own Pokémon Be True!.

Another Gliscor appeared in An Elite Coverup! under the ownership of Bertha.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP064 Gliscor Ash's Pokédex Gliscor, the Fang Scorp Pokémon, and the evolved form of Gligar. It watches its prey as it hangs from trees by its tail and attacks from above when it sees the chance.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

Diamond battled a wild Gliscor on his way to Iron Island. Like Bruno's Hitmonchan, it proved to be a tough opponent to beat with its Ice, Thunder, and Fire Fang moves, but was eventually beaten by Wig's Razor Leaf.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon franchise, echolocation is often represented by the move Supersonic. As shown in the anime, Gliscor and its unevolved form, Gligar, can emit sound waves to detect obstacles and fly around them, similar to echolocation. Although neither can learn Supersonic as members of the Zubat evolutionary line can, both can learn Screech, another sound-based move.
  • Gliscor is lighter than its pre-evolution, weighing in at only 93.7 lbs, while Gligar is 142.9 lbs. Although this would suggest that when Gligar evolves it becomes better adapted for flight, this is not the case.
  • Gliscor is one of ten non-Bug, Template:Type2 Pokémon that cannot learn Fly.
    • On a side note, its Pokédex entry states that it can fly, and it also flies in the anime when Ash encounters one along with a pack of Gligar.
  • Gliscor, along with Electivire, Magmortar, and Tangrowth, are the only Generation IV Pokémon that explicitly required the use of a Generation III game in order to be available until the release of Pokémon Platinum. In this case, Gligar are only available through dual-slot mode with Pokémon Emerald.
  • Gliscor is one of only three Pokémon to have an exclamation point in one of its Pokédex entries. Girafarig and Torchic are the others, with the exclamation mark being in its Girafarig's Gold, LeafGreen, HeartGold and Stadium 2 entry, and in Torchic's HeartGold and SoulSilver entries.

Origin

It shares physical traits with bats, gargoyles, scorpions and vampires. It is likely based on the scorpionfly.

Name origin

Gliscor's name comes from the words glide and scorpion.

Glion is also derived from the same two words, taking the "ion" from scorpion instead of the "scor".

In other languages

  • German: Skorgro - From Skorpion and groß (big).
  • French: Scorvol - From scorpion and vol (flight).
  • Korean: 글라이온 Glyon
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 天蠍王 Tiān Xiē Wáng - Literally "Sky scorpion king".
