Gligar (Japanese: グライガー Gliger) is a dual-type Ground/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Gliscor when leveled up while holding a Razor Fang during the night.

(Specifics may differ in past games. Refer to Game data→Evolution data for these details.)

Biology

Gligar is a purple, chiropteran Pokémon with scorpion features. Its head and body are round and roughly equal in size. It has long, triangular ears and triangular eyes with small pupils. Two large pointed teeth protrude from its upper jaw, and a pink tongue is often seen lolling from its mouth. Its arms are segmented at the wrists and end in large pincers. Spread between its arms are two blue wing membranes, each tipped with a purple claw. Its legs are thin and likewise segmented at the ankles, with its round feet having one claw each. Gligar has a long tail split into spherical sections, ending in a large, round stinger. The female Gligar will have a smaller stinger than the male.

As shown in the anime, Gligar feed on Berries and can emit sound waves to detect obstacles and fly around them. It glides smoothly and silently through the air with its limbs extended, and startles its prey and enemies by flying straight toward them. It attacks by clamping onto its enemy's face with its clawed hind legs and pincers, then jabbing it with its poisonous stinger. Gligar itself is resistant to opponents' venom. Gligar lives in mountainous regions, making its nest along cliff sides. When it is done gliding, it hops along the ground back to its nest. In Hisui, it is revealed that Gligar can survive even freezing temperatures.

Evolution

Gligar evolves into Gliscor.

(For specifics on this Pokémon's evolution in the games, refer to Game data→Evolution data.)
