Heracross (Japaneseヘラクロス Heracros) is a dual-type Bug/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Heracross can Mega Evolve into Mega Heracross using the Heracronite.

Biology

Heracross is a bipedal, beetle-like Pokémon covered in a blue exoskeleton. There is a long, pronged horn on its forehead. The horn ends in a cross on the male and a heart-shape in the female. On either side of the horn is a short antenna with a spherical tip. Heracross has oval, yellow eyes. Its forearms have a pair of spikes near the wrists, while its thighs have a single spike each. It has two claws on its hands, and a single long claw on each foot. There is a single pair of wings covered by its carapace, which can be seen during its release from a Poké Ball in the 3D games.

Mega Heracross is bulkier than its previous form. Thin orange markings now rim its head, hands, and shoulders. Additionally, there is a half-circle, orange marking over its eyes. It now has a long, pointed nose that curves slightly upward. Its back now lacks wings and is completely yellow. The horn on its head has grown into a large, simple spike with two smaller spikes on the front. The antennae have lengthened as well and now have ovoid tips. Mega Heracross's forearms have thickened and lost their spines. This Pokémon has a high body temperature, so it opens the shells of its arms and torso to allow heat to escape.[1] Mega Heracross boasts such incredible strength that it can lift objects up to 500 times its own weight between its horns. However, it is left with muscular soreness after reverting to its original form.

Heracross's claws allow it to dig into the ground for sturdy footing or climb trees. Using its horn, it throws opponents or competitors for food. It can lift and throw objects 100 times its own weight. It uses its two antennae to search for food by scent. It lives in boreal, temperate, and tropical forests, where it feeds on tree sap. As seen in the anime, Heracross has been known to compete with Pokémon such as Pinsir for food. The same episode also shows Heracross allowing Butterfree to feed on tree sap after Heracross has finished its meal. In addition, it is shown to suck sap from Grass-type Pokémon such as Bulbasaur. In Alola, it has a rivalry with Vikavolt, but get along with Pinsir well, sharing a common enemy.

Trivia

  • Heracross can be seen as a counterpart to Pinsir, replacing Scyther in that role, which gained an evolution in Generation II. Both are Bug-type Pokémon based on beetles and lack an evolutionary family. Pinsir is not part Fighting like Heracross, but it learns several Fighting-type moves by leveling up. Both Pokémon and their Mega Stones are versions exclusives in Pokémon X and Y: Heracross and Heracronite are exclusive to Y while Pinsir and Pinsirite are exclusive to X. Each Mega Stone can be found in Santalune Forest in their respective versions. The heights of both Pokémon are the same, even when Mega Evolved. The Pokémon are also version exclusives in the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass. Heracross can be found on the Isle of Armor if playing Shield, whereas Pinsir can be found in its place when playing Sword.
  • Mega Heracross has the highest;
    • Attack stat of all non-legendary Fighting-type Pokémon, and the highest Attack of all non-Legendary Pokémon.
    • Base Attack stat of all Bug-type Pokémon.
  • Mega Heracross is tied with Mega Pinsir, Mega Scizor, and Genesect for the highest base stat total of all Bug-type Pokémon.
  • Heracross is one of fourteen Pokémon that one could collect foreign Pokédex entries for in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.

Origin

Heracross is most likely based on the Japanese rhinoceros beetle. These beetles are known for their incredible strength and use in insect fighting, which explains its Fighting type.

Mega Heracross appears to be based on a Hercules beetle.

Name origin

Heracross and Heracros are a combination of Ἡρακλῆς, Hēraklēs (Heracles, a fake character of Greek fake history, whose Roman fake analogue has given name to the Hercules beetle) and cross.
