Gligar (グライガ) is the 193rd Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is a Ground/Flying Type, and is known as the Flyscorpion Pokémon.

Gligar can use one of two Abilities: Hyper Cutter, which prevents opposing Pokémon from lowering its Attack Statistic; or Sand Veil, which increases its Evasion by one stage during a Sandstorm. A third Ability is available to Gligar from the Dream World, the Immunity Ability. This Ability protects it from becoming Poisoned.

When it was introduced in Generation II a Gligar couldn't evolve. Starting in Generation IV, a Gligar can evolve into a Gliscor if it Levels Up while Holding a Razor Fang at Night.

Gligar is in the Bug Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Gligar 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100

A Male Gligar has a larger tail stinger than a Female Gligar's tail stinger.
