What is a good moveset for Gliscor?

6 votes

Mine has the ability Hyper Cutter. It knows:

Earthquake: No need to say anything.

Stone Edge: High power, good chance for critical hit, used to deal with Ice types. Also deals with Flying types.

Roost: Heals Gliscor.

Ice Fang: Decent power, decent accuracy, chance to freeze or cause flinching, type coverage. Deals with Dragon, Flying, Ground, and Grass types.

My Gliscor is awesome! his nickname is Gliscar because thats what he'll give you in the end. Ready?

Gliscar (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Sand Veil
Nature: Jolly (+Spd, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 SDef, 4 HP

-Sandstorm (Ability boosts evasiveness for Swords Dance)
-Swords Dance (I'm not going overboard with attack, right? ;) )
-Sky Uppercut (for levitators and Flying types ((that wasnt very well thought out)) and for Ice type coverage)
-Earthquake (dont need to say much about that. I mean, its EQ with STAB)

well I hope you like it. hey, this is my first EV trained Pokemon so give me a break if theres something I missed. I tried to give him good stats overall with the EVs + nature but no ones perfect. and if you happen to come across a Drifblim... thank goodness for Sandstorm.

I can't believe no one answered this
I found a strategy while fighting someone on Pokemon Showdown
Try this (Works best with double toxic spikes on)

Gen V

Gliscor (M/F) @ Toxic Orb

Trait: Poison Heal

EVs: 252 Attk / 4 SpDef / 252 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAttk)

  • Earthquake - STAB
  • Ice Fang - Gets rid of those flying types and the levitators
  • Protect - See Below
  • Substitute - See Below

    To use this, first get a burn, poison or badly poison on the target. Then comes the ultimate stalling since you outspeed most Pokemon in OU (non-scarfed). Use Protect, and Toxic Orb turns on. Use Substitute, then the substitute presumably dies. Afterwards. use protect again. Keep repeating and bring chips/popcorn while watching your opponent die.

    IF your Substitute doesn't get destroyed, or if you have no Burn or Poison or Badly Poison on your target, this is when E-quake and I-Fang come in. Use E-quake after a sub that's not yet destroyed. Use Ice Fang instead of E-Quake when it's obvious (Like fighting a Flying type, or something else). If you have no Burn/Poison/Badly Poison, keep stalling either till Substitute doesn't get destroyed and you can use E-Quake/I-Fang OR until your opponent runs out of PP or switches out. If your opponent misses on your Sub, you can also attack.

I hope you realize that besides your sweeper EVs and no Toxic, this is literally the only set Gliscor runs in OU.

mine also has hypper cutter :P
moves include
:Night slash
:X-scissors
:roost
:earth quake

however you can include fire fang and sunny day (or) ice fang and cross poison (or)
dig hunderd percent safe move cause it wont affect moves like magnitude and esrth quake
because of the fact that glisgor is a flying type. moves like sword dance and rock polish would also be helpfull.

so help yourselves
