We've explained how trainers can go about turning their Gligar into a Gliscor in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Gliscor may be one of the more underrated Pokemon when it comes to a terrifying description. While it may bear the "scorpion" name and description, researchers claim its behavior is actually closer to that of a vampire bat. This is a far cry from its pre-evolved form, Gligar, which relies primarily on the venom in its tail.

Strange what some time with a Razor Fang can do.

How to Evolve Gligar into Gliscor

Gligar evolves into Gliscor when exposed to a Razor Fang at night. Trainers can purchase the Razor Fang from the Trading Post in Jubilife Village or possibly obtain one from Gligar upon capture. More information about how to get a Razor Fang can be found in our Evolutionary Item guide.

The Razor Fang previously carried a chance to make the opponent Pokemon flinch on contact. Now, it appears to simply be an evolutionary item. Its description only mentions its sharpness, "as though it might be able to pierce straight through anything at all," and that it is "loved by a certain Pokemon." This Pokemon, of course, must be Gligar, as it is the only species known to evolve with the Razor Fang.

No other circumstances such as level or friendship threshold need to be met in order to evolve Gligar.

Gligar, the "Fly Scorpion" Pokemon, is exactly what it sounds like. It is, in essence, a purple flying scorpion. It is best known for the stinger barb on its tail, which it uses while hunting. To bring down its pray, Gligar will use its body to obscure its target's sight before stabbing it with its poisonous tail. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #185.

Gliscor, its evolved form, is known as the "Fang Scorpion" Pokemon. It now bears a row of sharp fangs and its tail has two barbs. This Pokemon is said to use these fangs in the exsanguination of its prey--sinking rows of sharp teeth into its victim's throat and leaving the corpse desiccated. According to Laventon, this Pokemon "takes on a look of satisfaction" after such a meal. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #186.
