#214 - Heracross
« on: September 23, 2012, 08:57:27 pm »
Name: Heracross
Number: 214
Type: Fighting / Bug

Swarm / Guts / Moxie

Base Stats:
80/125/75/95/40/85 - 500 Total

Move Edits:
No changes

Example Set
Scarfcross @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Moxie / Guts
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly / Adamant Nature
- Close Combat
- Megahorn
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge

Explanation of Set
Using a Choice Scarf, Heracross becomes a great revenge killer and with Moxie it can double as a potent late-game sweeper. Heracross's two powerful STAB moves, Close Combat and Megahorn, are part of the reason Heracross is such a wrecking ball, being able to 2HKO most of the opposition with just those moves. Stone Edge is a brilliant coverage move for Heracross, as it allows it to hit the pesky Flying-types such as Emolga and Crobat that resist its STAB moves. While using Earthquake with Close Combat might seem redundant due to their similar coverage, it actually hits Nidoking, Nidoqueen, and Qwilfish, all of which don't mind tanking hits from the other three moves on this set.
