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, it 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 is carapace, which can been 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]

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 lives in 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.

Mega Heracross in Pokémon Adventures

In the Ash & Pikachu manga

Ash owns a Heracross similar to the anime but it only made a brief appearance on a scoreboard in One Half Of A Poké Ball.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Heracross is first seen in The Legend. While Silver is communicating with Green following the conclusion of the Yellow chapter, he stands in a full shot of Sprout Tower with a bunch of Johto Pokémon in the background, Heracross being one of them.

A Heracross is later seen as one of the Pokémon under Bugsy's control. He first appeared in Into the Unown where he helped defeat Team Rocket at the Ruins of Alph. Later on in Hurray for Heracross, he helped Bugsy capture an Unown before they followed Suicune to a chamber. Afterwards he protected Bugsy after he activated the runes in the chamber where they encountered Suicune. Heracross faced the Legendary Pokémon, but was easily swatted away, forcing Bugsy to switch to another tactic. He later uses him to battle Sabrina in the opening ceremonies of the Pokémon League. He initially overwhelmed her Mr. Mime due to his type advantage, but lost when he was tricked into using Endure just in time for her to use Encore. After gleefully expounding that this left him powerless, she finished him off with a Psybeam attack.

Another Heracross appeared in The Last Battle XIII as one of the Pokémon sent to help the fight in Ilex Forest.

Another Heracross was seen in Greta's arsenal, which was first sent out in her battle against Emerald. It was able to fight evenly against his Sceptile and outscored it.

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.
  • Mega Heracross has the highest base Attack stat of all Bug-type Pokémon.
  • Mega Heracross is tied with Mega PinsirMega 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 Fightingtype.

Mega Heracross appears to be based on a Hercules beetle.

Name origin

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