In ''[[DP081|Chim - Charred!]]'', after a brief talk and recap, Ash and Paul decide to have a battle, and Gligar volunteers to be Ash's first Pokémon. However, Gligar's sheer determination comes to a screeching halt when Paul sends out ''his'' first Pokémon: Gliscor. Initially intimidated, Gligar pulls itself together and goes in for an {{m|X-Scissor}}, but Gliscor puts the breaks on Gligar with a {{m|Knock Off}}. Gligar recovers and uses {{m|Sand Attack}}, but Gliscor, unaffected, flies up and prepares a {{m|Guillotine}} attack. Gligar attempts to counter Gliscor with {{m|Steel Wing}}, but Gliscor's attack prevails and defeats Gligar. Initially sad, Gligar becomes elated after being congratulated for effort by Ash and the rest of his Pokémon.

In ''[[DP085|Fighting Fear with Fear!]]'', Ash decided to start training Gligar, however this was troublesome as Gligar (despite being eager to impress Ash) had developed a fear of battling following its loss to Paul's Gliscor. However, when Gligar and Ash were kidnapped by Team Rocket, Gligar showed it was determined to conquer its fears allowing it to master {{m|X-Scissor}}. Later, in order to save Ash from a fall, it used the [[Razor Fang]] Ash received from {{Gary}} (after Gligar had a practice battle with his {{TP|Gary|Umbreon}}) to evolve into Gliscor. It appears to have kept its personality traits even after evolution, as it still cries when scolded by Ash and also winks and sticks its tongue out.

Since evolving, Gliscor started to be used in more battles. In ''[[DP100|Aiding the Enemy]]'', Gliscor was used as a sparring partner by {{TP|Paul|Torterra}} to help illustrate how {{AP|Grotle}} could deal with its reduced speed. In ''[[DP101|Barry's Busting Out All Over!]]'', Gliscor battled {{an|Barry}}'s {{p|Roserade}} and the battle ended in a tie with Gliscor using X-Scissor and Roserade using {{m|Poison Jab}}, with both Pokémon knocking each other out at the same time. In ''[[DP106|A Breed Stampede!]]'', Gliscor learned Fire Fang after being hit by an {{m|Ice Shard}} from {{TP|Dawn|Piloswine}}, and is revealed to have learned Screech some time off-screen.

In ''[[DP108|Dealing With Defensive Types!]]'', it was Ash's third Pokémon in his battle against [[Byron]] and its first Gym Battle, it went up against {{p|Bastiodon}}, it first used Steel Wing from behind but Bastiodon countered with {{m|Iron Defense}}, its Fire Fang was countered by {{m|Flash Cannon}}. After dodging the first {{m|Iron Head}}, it was hit by two more in succession. It then cleverly used its wings to dodge Flash Cannon, it then landed on Bastiodon's back, although Bastiodon struggled, Gliscor was able to hit two Fire Fangs before being shaken off. Gliscor then knocked Bastiodon over with its tail. Its X-Scissor was overpowered by Iron Head. It then hid behind a rock which was broken by Iron Head, but it used this opportunity to attack from the air, however Gliscor was forced to dodge a Flash Cannon and it used Sand Attack instead to blind Bastiodon, it then finished Bastiodon off with Fire Fang, winning the match for Ash and earning him the {{badge|Mine}}.
In ''[[DP154|Mastering Current Events!]]'', Gliscor battled against [[McCann]]'s {{p|Scizor}} and lost. After training with {{Ash}} it challenged Scizor to a rematch. During the battle, Gliscor learned Giga Impact, and although it improved overnight, it eventually lost. Ash then left Gliscor with McCann for further training. It returned to Ash's party in ''[[DP185|Working on a Right Move!]]'' for its Trainer's battle against Paul in the [[Lily of the Valley Conference]].

It was seen training alongside Ash for his upcoming battle against Paul in ''[[DP186|Familiarity Breeds Strategy!]]'', where it was revealed to have grown significantly during its time with McCann. It was also shown to have perfected Giga Impact in a practice match with [[Dawn's Mamoswine]]. In ''[[DP187|A Real Rival Rouser!]]'', it battled Paul's {{p|Ninjask}} and was shown to have learned Stone Edge while training with McCann. Unfortunately, it was not enough to defeat Ninjask, and so was recalled when it began to show signs of tiring. Ash sent it out again against Paul's {{p|Drapion}} later in the battle, where it was shown to do quite well, hitting Drapion with a powerful Giga Impact, then attempting to strike it with X-Scissor. McCann's training showed in this battle.
===Personality and characteristics===
[[File:Ash and Gliscor tongue.png|thumb|200px250px|Gliscor sticking its tongueand outAsh]]
Gliscor is quite the character and one of the most emotional Pokémon Ash owns. As a Gligar, it was a bit of a crybaby, tearing up when upset at failing or being yelled at by Ash, especially when it was afraid as shown in ''[[DP081|Chim - Charred!]]'' and ''[[DP085|Fighting Fear with Fear!]]''. It had a big fear of battling other Pokémon and was afraid of high heights, despite being a {{type|Flying}}. Gligar seems to have a habit of sticking out its tongue and winking when appearing. It also has the tendency to crash land on top of Ash due to its inability to glide properly or would land on him for comfort. It would also try very hard to earn Ash's approval and attention. Gligar's evolution into Gliscor saw a noticeable confidence boost as it learned to overcome most of its fears, especially its fear of facing other Pokémon. Despite its evolution, it still kept most of its personality. It still remains loyal to him and is more than willing to try to prove to be strong for its {{pkmn|Trainer}} and itself.
