Gligar is an exclusive Pokémon found only in Pokémon Scarlet. If you possess Pokémon Violet, you have two options to obtain Gligar: either team up with a friend in co-op mode or trade with other players. However, if you own Pokémon Scarlet, you are in luck as you can easily obtain a Gligar and evolve it into a Gliscor. To facilitate Gligar’s evolution, you will require a rare item called the Razor Fang, which is not readily available. But fear not, there is a relatively simple method to acquire one – through Pokédex completion.

When you successfully capture 110 Pokémon in the Kitakami dex, you will be rewarded with a free Razor Fang. While this may initially seem like a daunting task, it took me approximately 20 minutes of dedicated grinding and capturing previously unregistered Pokémon in the dex to achieve this milestone. Keep in mind that some Pokémon are shared between the two Pokédexes, so you may already have a higher count than anticipated. Obtaining the Razor Fang needed to evolve Gligar in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet should prove to be relatively easy.

Once you possess the Razor Fang, evolving Gligar in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet becomes a straightforward process. Simply give the Razor Fang to Gligar and level it up during in-game nighttime.

Don’t miss out on the adventures of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – both games are available for purchase on the Nintendo Store.
