Which Elemental Fang do you guys think would be the best to have(or do you think I should have more than one of the Fangs) I personally was thinking fire fang but thunder fang would also work well too. I'm playing through Platinum again and I really want to use him.

You should use Fire Fang because it gives you coverage to Ice type which you are 4x weak to. A possible moveset for this could be: Fire Fang, Earthquake, Aerial Ace and if you want Thunder Fang so that you cover all your weaknesses.

Hope this helps

Some Pokemon, like Cynthia's Milotic, use ice attacks without being weak to fire fang.
And even when it does cover ice...

84 Atk [level 44] Gliscor Fire Fang vs. 0 HP / 0 Def [level 40] Piloswine: 56-66 (39.4 - 46.4%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
84 Atk [level 44] Gliscor Earthquake vs. 0 HP / 0 Def [level 40] Piloswine: 63-75 (44.3 - 52.8%) -- 23.8% chance to 2HKO

A super effective fang move is weaker than a neutrally effective earthquake, so I think all 3 fang moves will be kind of useless. If you really want to use a fang move, then I guess ice fang would be the best because you can use it against 2 of Cynthia's Pokemon and use it to decorate cakes. If you don't, then this is the moveset that I would recommend.

Ability: hyper cutter
- sand attack -> earthquake
- harden -> cut -> X-scissor
- knock off -> faint attack -> poison jab -> swords dance
- quick attack -> aerial ace

You can get infinite TM26 earthquakes and TM40 aerial aces in the Battle Frontier, so I don't think you should worry about wasting them on a Gliscor. And because it doesn't really need any moves other than earthquake, you can use Gliscor as an HM slave.

Get fire fang. When I had my Gliscor, I had Fire fang, Sky Uppercut, Earthquake, and Aerial Ace. Fire fang can dominate Aaron's Pokemon except Drapion, which you can take out with earthquake and also destroy ice types of Candice which you are 4x weak to. Then again you can have Aerial Ace. Ice fang might be good too for 4/6 of Bertha's team and Cynthia's Garchomp. Thunder fang is good for Crasher Wake, but it's really your choice on which elemental fang you want

Acrobatics was introduced in Gen 5 though.
Why would you need fire fang for Aaron when aerial ace is stronger? And none of Gliscor's attacks destroy Wake or Candice, because their Pokemon will outspeed and beat Gliscor before Gliscor can hit back. Ice fang isn't really good against Bertha. At least it's no better than earthquake.

84 Atk [level 55] Gliscor Ice Fang vs. 0 HP / 0 Def [level 52] Hippowdon: 50-60 (26.3 - 31.5%) -- guaranteed 4HKO
84 Atk [level 55] Gliscor Earthquake vs. 0 HP / 0 Def [level 52] Hippowdon: 57-67 (30 - 35.2%) -- 20.6% chance to 3HKO
Mine has all 3 elemental fangs, with earthquake he’s unstoppable. Then again he is Lviv 60 with perfect ivs and evs.
Why do you have all 3 fangs when you can just use earthquake?
