|All Razor Fang Locations|
|1||Battle Maison’s Exchange Service Corner – 48 BP||Yes|
|2||Crescent Isle and Mirage Forests – Possible hidden item||Yes|
In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire there are two ways to obtain a Razor Fang:
Method #1: Visit the Battle Maison’s Exchange Service Corner and trade 48 Battle Points (BP) for one Razor Fang. The Battle Maison is located at the Battle Resort, which is an island that only becomes accessible after completing the Delta Episode.
Method #2: You have the chance to find a Razor Fang in Mirage Spots, specifically in Crescent Isle and in any Mirage Island. By using the Dowsing Machine you can scour the area for hidden items, one of which could be a Razor Fang.
Method 1: Battle Maison’s BP Shop
The Battle Maison operates similarly to the Battle Tower from previous generations.
If you don’t know where the Battle Maison is, just head over to the Battle Resort’s Pokémon Center to get started.
Step 1: From the Battle Resort’s Pokémon Center, proceed slightly east and then head up the staircase at the nearby intersection.
Step 2: After going up the stairs, just keep going north and enter the Battle Maison.
Step 3: Once you’re inside, you’ll see two staircases going upstairs. Head up the right one.
Step 4: On the second floor, you’ll find one of the Exchange Service Corner’s attendants. If you’ve got at least 48 BP then you can purchase the Razor Fang from her.
In the Exchange Service Corner, two attendants offer a wide variety of valuable items in exchange for BP.
The left attendant sells Vitamins, EV training items, and evolution items. The right attendant sells held items used in battles, including the Razor Fang.
Here’s a complete list of items offered as prizes by the attendant on the right:
|Flame Orb||16 BP||Choice Band||48 BP|
|Toxic Orb||16 BP||Choice Scarf||48 BP|
|Absorb Bulb||32 BP||Choice Specs||48 BP|
|Cell Battery||32 BP||Expert Belt||48 BP|
|Eject Button||32 BP||Focus Band||48 BP|
|Luminous Moss||32 BP||Focus Sash||48 BP|

Method 2: Crescent Isle & Mirage Islands
Upon obtaining the Eon Flute from Steven, you’ll be able to soar through Hoenn’s skies, granting you access to Mirage Spots.
Mirage Spots are rare locations that can randomly be found while soaring the Hoenn region.
Each day, a random Mirage Spot appears on the outskirts of Hoenn, marked by a red sparkle. These Mirage Spots fall into one of five categories:
- Mirage Cave
- Mirage Forest
- Mirage Island
- Mirage Mountain
- Crescent Isle
In Mirage Islands and Crescent Isle, you can find various hidden items, including the Razor Fang. Here’s how this works:
Each day, you can find one unique item per spot. All potential items found in these locations include:
|Location||Item 1||Item 2||Item 3||Item 4||Item 5|
|Crescent Isle||Heart Scale||Deep Sea Scale||Deep Sea Tooth||Razor Claw||Razor Fang|
|Mirage Forest||Pearl||Big Pearl||Razor Fang||–||–|
The image below highlights all possible Mirage Island locations, as well as the fixed location of Crescent Isle.
If none of the Mirage Spots below are currently active then you can adjust the time settings on your 3DS or emulator until any of them appear.

How the Razor Fang Works
The Razor Fang is a held item that provides all attacking moves, which don’t already have a flinch chance, a 10% chance of making the target flinch.
Flinching prevents the target from attacking if the holder moves first, so your Pokémon’s Speed is crucial. This item works exactly like the King’s Rock.
But because the flinch chance is relatively low, the Razor Fang isn’t really worth using in battle at all.
It’s possible to go through an entire battle without the Razor Fang’s effect triggering. Additionally, the Razor Fang doesn’t boost the flinch chance of moves that already have a flinch chance, like Air Slash or Dark Pulse.
Tip: Moves that hit multiple times in a turn, such as Bullet Seed or Rock Blast, can be slightly more advantageous with the Razor Fang. Each hit of these moves gets its own independent 10% chance to induce a flinch, potentially causing your opponent to flinch more often.
Outside of Battle
The Razor Fang also serves as an Evolution item. It can be used to evolve Gligar into Gliscor.
When a Gligar holding a Razor Fang levels up at night, it evolves into Gliscor. After evolving, the Razor Fang is consumed and disappears.
