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.

Hello There! DT has been falling behind lately hasnt he!

Physical Moveset: Earthquake(think about it!), Swords Dance(he has enough defense to set it up, and then destroy all in his path), Stone Edge(same as you), Optional. Iron Tail works, along with Ice Fang, Return, Brick Break, Poison Jab, Thunder Fang, Fire Fang, and X-Scizzor.

Staller: Toxic(hes a staller, what do you expect!), Roost(in case he needs it), Earthquake(in my opinion, even Stallers need at least one damage dealer), and Protect. Heres a strategy: First Use toxic, Then Alternate between eartquake and roost or protect.

Hope This Helps!:)

Earthquake: No need to say anything.

Stone edge: deals with ice types.

Thunder fang: deals with water types(second and last weakness)

Aerial ace: has to hit, STAB.

Roost will make you lose your flying type. You need a hurting flying move. Thunder fang will let you take out all of your weaknesses.
(watch out for groun/water types like wiscash and quagsire).

Remeber, ground types don't effect you, unless you use roost.
I think he meant that for Thunder Fang

Another Gen V:

I found this quite good:

Gliscor@Toxic Orb

200 HP, 56 Attack, 252 Speed

Nature: Jolly

-Fling: Poison The Opponet:)

-Acrobatics: Once You've Flung, Powerful STAB

-Earthquake: STAB

-Protect/Swords Dance/Ice Fang: Extra Healing+Poison Damage from Fling, Attack Boost, or More Coverage.

Hmm.. With hyper cutter it can be a perfect attack passer..

Gliscor@Yache berry/Salac Berry

Role:Baton passer


EVs: Spd, Sp.Def, HP

  • Sword dance
  • Earthquake
  • Substitude/Fire fang
  • Batton pass

Strategy: Give him Yache berry if you are afraid of ice attacks. Salac berry for passing and a bit speed. In the first tur use substitude if you have pick it up or directly sword dance if you chosen fire fang for coverage. After you boosted with S-Dance pass it. I generally add Gliscor to my sandstorm team and I pass the atk to Garchomp. It makes it a real beast!

Item: Evolite
Ability: Immunity
Nature: Careful
EVs: 252 Defense, 252 S.Defense, 6 Hp


The evil that is a Toxic staller. Toxic is for stalling as I said before. Stealth-rock is good for a lead but you can only have it if you use Sand-veil, Rest or Roost is if you really want a healing move but it is a bit risky while Roost is great for healing, U-turn can help you escape from Pokemon you can't stall. Protect is EVIL just EVIL, there are few things more annoying than the Toxic+Protect combo. Earthquake is for STAB and removes Steel types and Poison Types. This guy is VERY bulky with the evolite: 272 Hp, 376.5 S. Defense, and a HUGE 463.5 Defense stat.

Don't raise a fuss over this guys.
In the games, there's a Girl ( I believe it was a girl ) Who can tell you if you've maxed your ev's out or not, but if you've filled out only 508 ( Even though you've gotten all of your stats worth ) she won't confirm that you've maxed out your EV's.
Why not Roost?
I do have Roost as an option, it would be a definite one but it can not be there with Immunity

Ill take a shot at Gligar :D

Gligar (M) @ Eviolite
Impish Nature (+Def -SpA)
Evs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spe
Trait: Sand Veil
~ Substitute
~ Roost
~ Toxic
~ Earthquake

Dis guy has the best defense in UU, with eviolite reaching the almighty 508! Now thats tough to get by. His SpD is also remarkable but not as good as his Defense >:D

Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 Spd
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Stone Edge
- Power Trick
- Earthquake
- Swords Dance/ Rock polish / Facade

Power trick gliscor, fairly uncommon. Power trick gives it a nice 125 base attack, and a respectable base 95 defense, keeping its bulkiness. Earthquake is STAB, and stone edge is coverage. Swords dance / rock polish is for boosting, or Facade for neutral coverage.

Toxivol (Gliscor) (M) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 Atk / 200 Def / 58 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Swords Dance
  • Bulldoze
  • Brick Break
  • Aerial Ace

Swords Dance is for the +2 Attack, which Gliscor can't complain about.

Most will ask "Why Bulldoze when he has access to E-Quake??" I'm using it for the speed drop.

Turn 1:
Infernape used Acrobatics
Gliscor used Bulldoze (SE) (I moved Second)
Gliscor is healed with Poison Heal

Turn 2:
Gliscor used Bulldoze (I moved First)
Infernape fainted.
Gliscor is healed with Poison Heal

See, I was able to kill him before he got to attack a second time and got 2 straight Poison Heals (1/4 of my health). But if anything, I lowered it's Speed for my next Pokemon.

Aerial Ace is STAB, which is nice to have.
Brick Break is for screens and damage to Ice Types and certain Levitators (Probopass and Bronzong neutral for instance)

I doubt an infernape would stay in to a gliscor who usually carrys earthquake.
What i would change here is switch bulldoze for earthquake.
I know your strat is to lower speed but 1 earthquake does just under double damage that 2 bulldozes have which is basicly wasting your swords dance boost.
Also switch areal ace for ice fang.
Areal ace is low powered even with stab and covers very little where as ice fang covers most used dragons such as dragonite appearing on most teams.
Ice fang i would consider, i just don't like the 95% acc. I, like most, seem to have horrible luck with even that. I will try Earthquake for a trial run. Thanks for the info you wise son of a gun.
lol yeh i always have bad hax i missed 3 special rends out of 3 against hex in the tourney in the 2 battles, it has 95acc :L
this is good if gliscor and infernape are the final 2 pokemon in the battle. Every one would switch out infernape if not

This set sounds a little crazy, but I'm sure it works well. This is a Stall/Baton Pass team.

Gliscor (F) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Facade
- Baton Pass
- Sword Dance
- Roost

Don't hate if it sucks... It might be better if someone baton passes Ingrain or Aqua Ring.

My Gliscor rocks! this is his stuff.
Full-Force Gliscor
Trait: Sand Veil (helps ALOT(In a Sandstorm))
Item: Leftovers (useful for somethings)
Nature: Mild
Stone Edge - Deals with Ice(x4 weakness!!!!) Flying, ETC.
Aerial Ace - Deals with Fighting, Grass, Double Team Spammers, Sand-Attack Spammers, ETC.
Ice Fang - Decent damage, Deals with Ground, Flying, ETC., Decent chance to flinch or freeze
Earth Power - Good Damage, Deals with Rock and Steel, Chance to lower Sp. Defense
The Earth Power Attack will soon become Earthquake!

ev-252 in atk and 252 in speed

Arial ace-stab and never miss
stone edge-powerfull and deals with ice type
X-scizzor-good coverage

do not use fangs as if they are even superef ective on any Pokemon but they will not make a damage that a stab earthquake can do

I can't believe I didn't see this one:

Gliscor: flying gem
Nature: jolly/adamant
Evs: 4hp 252 atk 252 spd
Ability: poison heal/ hyper cutter
Moves: acrobatics
Swords dance

This guy is a beast. Flying gem boosts acrobatics to a ridiculous power level for one use. Earthquake is secondary stab to deal with rock and steel types who resist acrobatics. Swords dance is an obvious boosting move. Roost makes up for the lack of poison heal recovery, while substitute facilitates set up. Fire fang and ice fang can also go on here for coverage

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.
