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.

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 Gligar can go out and hunt. Gliscor's wings cannot be flapped to the same extent that other Pokémon's wings can. Gliscor has to use 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

In the anime

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

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 Mitsuzō in DP154 so it could train and grow stronger.

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

Trivia

  • Gliscor and its pre-evolution are the only Pokémon to have the Ground/Flying type combination.
    • Gliscor and Gligar are the only dual-typed Pokémon that have immunity to one of their own types without the help of an ability; Ground moves do nothing to Template:Type2s.
    • Their type combination also makes them the only Flying-type Pokémon immune to the Template:Type2.
  • Gliscor, along with its pre-evolution, is one of the few Pokémon who can only learn STAB by TMs, egg moves and move tutor, not naturally.
  • 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 two Pokémon to have an exclamation point in one of its Pokédex entries. Girafarig is the other, with the exclamation mark being in its Gold, LeafGreen, HeartGold and Stadium 2 entry.


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: 天蠍王
