I've seen a lot of Poison Heal Gliscors, but never a single Breloom. What makes Gliscor so much better than Breloom at using Poison Heal effectively?

This is for competitive, right? What format/rules are you playing with?
I'm playing Gen 8 National Dex on Showdown!.

Gliscor has less weaknesses than Breloom and has a very wide movepool, including hazards, U-turn, decent STAB access, and tons of coverage. Gliscor also has more bulk so it can take better advantage of Poison Heal instead of falling over to one or two attacks. Breloom also prefers Technician for strong priority/STAB moves.

Hope this helped!
