===============================INTRODUCTION==============================

After nearly three years of waiting, the release date of the highlyanticipated Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire looms a mere two weeks away! So,I figured I'd best start looking at some of the more popular RBYGSC Pokemon,since I know many of you will likely never look at your old Pokemon cartsagain once you have the next generation of games in hand.

With that in mind, today's Pokemon is Heracross! This brawling bluebug is a favorite among many trainers both for its uniquely advantageousdual type and its impressive pool of powerful and rare naturally learnedmoves. Though I've never been a fan of Fighting types in general, I canreadily admit that this is one nasty powerhouse who will put the hurt onjust about anything that foolishly crosses its path.

LOCATION: Heracross is one of those irritating Pokemon thatcan only be found by using the move Headbutt on the smaller, pointed treesin the game. Check out the trees on Routes 29-33 and 42-44 in Gold andSilver for your chance to spot this elusive bug. Crystal owners have feweroptions; in this version Heracross only inhabits the trees of Routes 33,42, 44 and Azalea Town.

At the risk of sounding painfully unoriginal and lacking in creativity,Heracross is cool. That pretty much sums it up…this is one cool bug.Though Pinsir will always be my favorite Bug type, I've found a certainrespect for the unique Heracross that I don't normally apply to PokemonI don't personally train. Heracross' ho-hum Defense and that insanely debilitatingquad weakness to Flying type moves should be a concern, naturally, buthe does have one thing going for him in that you aren't likely to see manyFlying type moves coming from non-Flying type Pokemon (unlike move typessuch as Ice, Electric and Ground, which can be found on darn near everytype)…just remember to fear the almighty Pecking Goldeen! :p

Megahorn is unquestionably the single most obvious move for anyHeracross, the remainder of its moveset notwithstanding. Only four Pokemonare even capable of learning this move (Heracross, Ditto, Smeargle andMew), and of these four Heracross has by far the highest Attack, is theonly one who receives STAB on the move and comes by it far easier thanany of the other three (indeed, you need Heracross to even consider gettingMegahorn on Smeargle, Ditto or Mew). Funny how they made Bug type movessuper-effective against two of the most annoying types in the game (Psychicand Dark) yet made all Bug type moves suck save one, ain't it? Well, Megahornhappens to be said one, so you should definitely use it if you're planningto use Heracross at all.

It's too bad that most Psychic types and one of the most popularDark types (Houndoom) are faster than Heracross, have high Special Attackstats and super-effective, STABed moves to use against him, but his SpecialDefense is respectable (much more respectable than Houndoom and Alakazam'sDefense, anyway *snicker*) so Heracross should be able to KO such Pokemonwith Megahorn before they can KO him with Flamethrower/Psychic/whatever.Even if you can't find an opponent that is weak to Bug type moves, theaforementioned STAB Heracross receives on Megahorn and the fact that hisAttack is a delicious 348 should ensure this is one move that will crippleany opponent who isn't pointedly resistant to it.

Earthquake works wonders against the many Fire types who are fasterthan Heracross and sport hideous Defense stats…not that you'd reallywant to leave Heracross in against a Fire type in the first place, butit's nice to have something to fall back on should you find yourself withno other alternative. Earthquake is just a great move in general: powerful,accurate, and extremely effective against many popular types. Such a movecan make Heracross a surprise contender for the likes of Jolteon and itsElectric brethren, the many Rock types that are considerably slower thanHeracross and the annoying Gengar who is known to frequently pack Psychicand is in possession of a godly Special Attack…note (SPOILER): this onlyapplies in GSC as in Ruby/Sapphire Gengar gains the Flotation characteristicwhich renders him immune to Ground type attacks, but I'm assuming herethat you'll primarily be using Heracross in GSC and Pokemon Stadium 2 (ENDSPOILER). If nothing else, Earthquake is a decent attack to use againstanything that is resistant to Bug ot Fighting type moves regardless ofsuper-effectiveness.

Now…I absolutely love the Endure/Reversal combo on Heracross ashe learns the requisite moves naturally, and the fact that he gets STABon Reversal and has that wicked 348 Attack means he will be KOing manyopponents in one hit once he himself is at 1HP. BUT, in order for thisset to work you positively MUST have another Pokemon in your party BatonPass the move Agility to Heracross beforehand (unless you're planning tofight nothing but Pokemon who are inherently slower than Heracross, butthat's really not something you can afford to exclusively depend on). Ifyou don't have an Agility BPer in your party you'll likely wish to considerone of the alternate movesets coming up in a bit, but for now I'd liketo assume you've provided in advance for Heracross' Speed problem so youcan take advantage of this incredibly effective combo. Simply put, onceHeracross starts getting low on HP you use Endure to get him down to asingle hit point and then Reversal away. As I said, Heracross' Reversalis insanely powerful and capable of felling many opponents in successionwithout having to use Endure again, but you might want to save this Heracrossfor later in the match just to be safe (namely, when the opposing partyis likely to already be softened up a bit and their Hazer is already gone,seeing as how this Heracross is rather dependant on Agility).

I usually recommend Focus Band on Pokemon who use Endure with Reversal/Agility;it's a nice little bit of added insurance should Reversal fail to quiteKO something that it was intended to. Besides, since the Focus Band itemis found in what was once an intense Fighting type gym, I like to recommendit on Fighting types purely for posterity's sake. If Focus Band isn't yourthing, though, you can always go for Quick Claw (should you find yourselflacking an Agility BPer) or Leftovers (if you decide to go with the popularRest/Sleep Talk Heracross).

As I mentioned about half a second ago, many trainers favor a Heracrosswho uses Rest and Sleep Talk in conjunction with a couple of powerful physicalattacks, such as Megahorn and Earthquake. This moveset is completely viable,if not a tad risky (not to mention altogether ineffectual against Flyingtypes, the bane of all Heracross). Such a Heracross will feasibly lastquite a long time in battle (depending on its opponents), though it maynot dish out quite as much direct damage as a Heracross sporting movesyou could actually control and employ. Another rightfully popular movefor Heracross is Counter; he is one of the few Pokemon in the game whocomes by the move naturally and it at least gives you SOMETHING to useagainst Fliers (assuming Heracross manages to survive their initial onslaught,that is).

As Heracross' Defense is average and his HP is relatively high hecan usually make good use of a well-timed Counter, though I personallyprefer to stick with moves whose damage can be somewhat predicted and/orcontrolled. If nothing else you might want to stick a Normal type movelike Return on Heracross just so he can damage Flying types without havingto absorb an attack himself first (why, WHY do Fliers have to be resistantto Bug, Fighting AND Ground type moves??), but with so many other greatphysical move options I'm loathe to saddle Heracross with something thatisn't particularly effective against anything.

No matter how you decide to use him, Heracross is a most uniqueand interesting addition to the Pokemon world. His stats are laid out perfectlyfor a Pokemon with his particular move options, I'd wager, and though heis popular to the point of being slightly overused I would neverthelessrecommend him to any trainer whose curiosity is even remotely piqued. You'llbe hard-pressed to find another Bug OR Fighter with this much personalityand utter usefulness, and unique dual types are always more fun than thoseboring single types or horribly redundant Grass/Poison, Rock/Ground, Normal/Flying,Bug/Poison, etc. types. If nothing else, I'd rather meet this particularBug in battle than yet ANOTHER Scizor.

Best of luck in your quest to master this brawny battling beetle,and I'll see you all tomorrow with another rapidly fading old-school Pokemonof the Day!
