Gligar, a flying oddity introduced in Pokémon Gold and Silver, gets an evolution letting its unusual characteristics shine in the big leagues. When leveled up at night while holding a Sharp Fang, the raspberry-blowing glider evolves into a nightmarish creature. Featuring the full range of the new elemental fang moves and a variety of others, this demonic Pokémon is a force to be reckoned with.
