Immunity

There is an error in the trivia section. One of the trivia segments states that Gligar and Gliscor are the only dual-type pokemon that are immune to their own type, however Vibrava, Flygon, Baltoy, and Claydol are all dual type and are all immune to their own ground type thanks to their ability, Levitate. - Buddy Christ - unsigned comment from Buddy Christ (talkcontribs)

I assume why this hasn't been fixed before is that it probably means without abilities, but eh. Tina 20:05, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. Certainly, Vibrava and Flygon are invulnerable to Ground due to Levitate, but not due to Dragon. Same with Baltoy and Claydol, since Psychic doesn't have immunity from Ground. TTEchidna 02:23, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Then shouldn't the trivia be more specific? It doesn't say that they are the only two pokemon who have one type that is immune to their other type, just that they are the only pokemon immune to their own type. - Buddy Christ - unsigned comment from Buddy Christ (talkcontribs)

Gender difference

If you look well, male's stinger isn't larger: it goes straight, while female's stinger is slightly more hook-like... or comma-like... - Taylor 17:34, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Color?

Am I the only one that has noticed that Gligar has COMPLETELY changed color? The difference is so radical, it makes me sick. He went from bright pink to dark blue. It's rediculous! Sidnoea 23:05, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Gligar's colors vary between games and the anime. It is light blue-violet in most sprite artwork and game artwork, dark pink in Pokémon Gold and Silver, blue-purple in Platinum, regular purple in the high-grade console games such as Pokémon Battle Revolution, and powder-pink in the anime.

Facehugger

Am I alone in seeing the similarities between Gligar and the Facehugger from the movie Alien? Not only is the design a typically-pokémonified version of the Facehugger, but many of its Pokédex entries specifically mention its propensity for latching onto its prey's face. About the only difference whatsoever is that it doesn't lay its eggs down your throat, it just injects a poison. Considering the franchise's stance of revealing little-to-nothing about pokémon mating, this is not surprising. Everything else matches. Lostdrewid 20:18, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

It's an interesting similarity, but im sure its coincidence.Bug Catcher Wade

Back Sprite

Hey, i just noticed this, and it probably applies to more than just gligar, but the back sprite is different from Diamond and Pearl, to HeartGold and SoulSilver.Bug Catcher Wade 03:39, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

this has been stated before Ataro 04:04, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

And nothing has been done to note it on the page.Bug Catcher Wade 06:23, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Possible Trivia Addition?

I'm not quite sure, but it might be possible that Gligar and its evolution are the only pokemon to have only one word in their species name, but have 2 capital letters? FlyScorpion? TheTheDragon14 20:40, 3 January 2011 (UTC)TheTheDragon14

No, there is also an EleSquirrel Pokémon.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 20:43, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

OK, got it. TheTheDragon14 20:47, 3 January 2011 (UTC)TheTheDragon14
