Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Counter should be paired with Close Combat. Heracross is best used as a Fighting-type attacker.

  • Struggle Bug can be paired with Megahorn for Bug-type offense, but there are better options in this role.

  • Earthquake is outclassed by Heracross’s other charge moves.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Struggle Bug performs better than Counter, but is resisted by many types that would attack Heracross.

  • Heracross only has 1-bar charge moves. Close Combat, Megahorn, Earthquake is the order of preference.
Rating Explanation

Heracross has a unique Bug/Fighting typing not even seen until Ultra Beasts in Sun/Moon. As a Bug-type attacker, Heracross is both outclassed and not viable for tasks such as soloing Alakazam. As a Fighting-type attacker, Heracross is still outclassed, but it’s a great choice for tasks that require lots of pugilistic power.

Heracross frequently appears in gyms, either to show off or to help a player farm candy, but its defensive prowess is poor, being weak to and resisted by many types.
