Paul would capture a Gliscor in the episode Riding the Winds of Change!, which is the same episode that Ash caught his Gligar. Ash's Gligar would evolve into a Gliscor in the episode Fighting Fear With Fear!. Ash would leave Gliscor with the Air Battle Master in Mastering Current Events!, but would call upon Gliscor for the Sinnoh League.
Ash's Gliscor makes an appearance in Giratina and the Sky Warrior and Arceus and the Jewel of Life, along with the Pikachu Shorts "Pikachu's Great Ice Adventure" and "Pikachu's Great Sparking Search".
Gliscor's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Gliscor is a part of the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. With a great ability in Poison Heal used in conjunction with a Toxic Orb, Gliscor has an immunity to status that allows it to break down stall and balanced cores in OU. With reliable recovery in Roost and Taunt to shut down phazers and set-up sweepers, Gliscor can use a Swords Dance stallbreaker set with heavy investment in Special Defense. This allows it to breakdown Pokémon that could otherwise pose immense trouble to it, such as Mega Sableye. It can also run a Taunt stallbreaker set with Toxic to slowly wither down foes, but leaves it more open to being set-up bait for Mega Sableye. Gliscor can tank Knock Offs after its Toxic Orb has activated while handling numerous threats in the tier due to its natural bulk and resistances to common attacking types, from Gengar to Clefable to Assault Vest Tornadus-T. However, Gliscor does suffer from weaknesses to Water and Ice attacks that are very common, and it can be overwhelmed by powerful attackers like Mega Metagross and Mega Altaria due to it investing so heavily in Special Defense.
