So Gliscor is becoming the next Charizard in this episode. It was expected.


Wicked Witch
Yeah. Gliscor was released. He also successfully learned Giga Impact ... which is a waste. The release was foreshadowed before the Night training. Gliscor refused to go back into its Pokeball and wandered off in the night.

The Old Man's Scizor
- Metal Claw: Brock confirmed it in the opening scene. The old man commanded it later; " Metal Claw ".
- Double Hit: Commanded by the Old Man. " Double Attack ".
- Double Team: Commanded by the Old Man.
- Hyper Beam: Commanded by the Old Man.

The girl's Chimecho used an attack but I was distracted. Can't say what it was.

No Team Rocket interference. It appears they actually returned Gliscor to Ash when he crashed. That was nice of them.

- Gliscor wins the rematch

It doesn't. Gliscor lost the rematch by KO as well.


It seemed too much like the episode where Charizard gets released for training.

I secretly enjoyed how Scizor was victorious and Gliscor lost. Let it train and get stronger and then it can return. It was a waste to learn a new move right when it left.

Let's see... Gliscor learned Giga Impact and went for training. I want to see it return, like mentioned above; in a similar way to Charizard.

Animation wasn't too bad considering it was Kinoshita.

Released as expected. Can any one who understands Japanese confirm whether Ash told Giscor he'd call on it for the Sinnoh League?


Gliscor has learned Giga Impact perfectly, or it needs some more training on it?

Ash only mentioned Sinnoh League in the beginning of the episode, when introducing Gliscor to the air master.

It could've been alluded to but I didn't hear any comments about the league as Ash was releasing Gliscor.

probably just trying to cut off all the gliscors gone for ever stuff before it happens not that theres much chance of that but here's hoping it works.

cann't wait to see this cann't wait to see this

and hopefully gible interesting when we get around to him.
Sad to see Gliscor go but at the same time a bit relieved (no more speculation about that, there was too much bashing). I too am curious about whether it is actually confirmed Gliscor will be a "new Charizard" or not?

Well it sucks that Gliscor left for training...but if it really is like Charizard then it's not that bad since it'll be back and alot stronger.

I would have liked it if it stayed though.


Well-Known Member
Wow, I was actually pretty annoyed when I found out about Gliscor (probably because I was niave enough to believe it would simply get oaked) but afetr coming here and reading this thread, everyones calm reaction has calmed me down. Thank you all :D.

As said, it wont be so bad if it becomes the next Charizard, but if it doesn't it just seems like a bit of a waste to me.

I want to believe that Gliscor can be called back on like charizard. As i can swear there would have been a gliscor vs gliscor battle against Paul in the league.
I reckon Ambipom and Gliscor would comeback for a few episodes in Ash and Dawns tournaments.

I think it's GREATTTTTTT that Ash's Gliscor left. Look on th bright side, at least he'll get another one on DP157. But I also want Ash to catch a Riolu.Do you think it's possible, guys?


Champion Scientist
I'm really getting sick of the way Pokemon leave in Diamond and Pearl. Cacnea, Ambipom and Gliscor have all left to train with another trainer that we'll probably never see again over something that came up in the same episode they leave that was never an issue for them before.

I just hope Ash uses his Oaked Pokemon in the Sinnoh League. The 6 on 6 battles in the Hoenn League got dull with Ash only using the exact same team of 6 each episode.

Gliscor only executed the attack once but it did so without any problems. It seems Gliscor was left for training so it could learn to maneuver better in the air.
