Need to know how to evolve Gligar into Gliscor in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's Teal Mask DLC? We're on the case. Only obtaining an evolution two generations after its debut, it's one of the more involved evolution methods of the bunch. It's a great Stealth Rock setter or Swords Dance user. Having access to powerful regeneration moves and even Defog gives it more supportive uses, too.

Whether you're putting this in your casual team for its looks, aiming to complete the Kitakami Pokedex, or want to climb the competitive ladder with it in tow, keep reading: we'll walk you through the process of evolving Gligar into Gliscor, as well as detailing some popular competitive movesets and its best Tera type.

How to evolve Gligar into Gliscor in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Teal Mask

To evolve Gligar into Gliscor, you need to trade it at night while it's holding a Razor Fang. This is no different to past games, but how you go about obtaining a Razor Fang obviously differs in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet to other games in the series.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Gligar trade codes

Another way would be to use the game's online trade system to trade your Gligar for another person's Gligar — both holding Razor Fangs and at night. That way you both get what you want.

You can organize a trade with a friend or trusted player through social media communitues like Discord or Twitter.

You can use the unofficial Gligar trade code 0207 (the Pokemon's national dex number) to increase the odds of finding these mirror trades.

How to get a Razor Fang in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Teal Mask

Though no precise Razor Fang location has been found in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's Teal Mask DLC just yet, you can get a Razor Fang from a caught Gligar. They'll occasionally have one in their Held Item slot.

You can increase the odds of this happening by starting the battle with a Pokemon with the Compound Eyes ability, like Blipbug or Dottler.
