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

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

Biology

Physiology

Gligar is a small, purple, bat-like Pokémon. It has a single pair of blue wings, which are similar in function to a flying squirrel's, and have pointed claws at the edges of the membranes. Gligar has pincers on its forelegs, and a segmented, insectoid tail with a stinger on the end. Gligar has short hind legs, and feet that appear segmented with a large, single claw each. Additionally, Gligar has long, pointed ears and triangle-shaped eyes, fangs and a large tongue that is often seen out of its mouth.

Gender differences

A female Gligar has a smaller stinger.

Special abilities

Gligar knows a small handful of poisonous attacks, such as Poison Sting and the rarely known Cross Poison. Gligar can also use a few Bug-type moves, like Fury Cutter and U-turn. While Gligar can learn Ground and Rock-type moves typical to a Ground-type Pokémon, its abilities as a Flying-type are limited. Most notable is the fact that Gligar cannot learn Fly.

Also, Gligar and its evolved form Gliscor are two out of three Pokémon that are both Flying and Ground, which gives them an immunity to both Electric-type and Ground moves.

Gligar, along with its evolved form Gliscor, can emit sound waves to detect obstacles and fly around them.

Behavior

Flying straight at the foe's face, it startles them by clamping on with its clawed hind legs and the pincers on its forelegs, before jabbing with its poison stinger. Gligar also tend to ambush prey as it passes by below. When it is done gliding, it hops along the ground back to its nest.

Habitat

Mountain

Mountain Pokémon

Gligar live in mountainous regions, making their nests along cliff sides. It also prefers hot arid environments, but doesn't mind forests either.

Diet

Gligar are carnivorous. They also eat fruits.
