Gligar (Japanese: グライガー Guraigaa) is a Ground/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II. It is based on a combination of a scorpion and a bat. Gligar is able to learn not only Ground and Flying moves, but it is also able to learn quite a few Poison moves, as well. Despite having wings, it cannot learn Fly. Gligar can have two abilities as of Generation IV: Hyper Cutter or Sand Veil. Gligar gained an evolved form, Gliscor in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl for the Nintendo DS. Ash caught a Gligar in the 64th episode of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.


Gligar is a combination of a scorpion and a bat. However, Gligar use its wings to glide through the air, not to actually fly. Male and female Gligar are different at the 'ball' on its tail, as males' are bigger than the females'. It is blue in color if it is a Shiny Pokémon.


Gligar evolves into a Gliscor by having it hold a Razor Fang and leveling it up at night.

In the anime

Ash got himself a Gligar when Gligar refused to return to its forest and because it liked Ash. This particular Gligar often stuck out its tongue and loved to eat berries. Gligar also liked to land on Ash, and Ash was usually knocked onto the floor because Gligar had a tough shell on its skin. It also cried often when scolded by Ash, when faced with its fear of heights, or when it lost to a very tough opponent. It evolved into a Gliscor, thanks to a Razor Fang given to it by Gary.
