Heracross, the Single Horn Pokémon. Though gentle and docile, Heracross posesses great strength and power, their favorite food is the fresh sap of leafy trees.
– Ash’s Pokedex


When it was first introduced, it was thought that Heracross was somehow related to Pinsir, but it turned out that Heracross was all by itself.

Heracross is based on a beetle. When making this wallpaper, I had some trouble, because Heracross is so one-coloured. Its typing of Bug/Fighting is unique. It’s not a bad combination, with only 3 weaknesses, but a 4x weakness to Flying. However, it can learn Rock moves like Stone Edge to counter Fire and Flying types, and Bug moves of course, to counter the weakness to Psychic.

For a non-legendary Pokemon that didn’t evolve from anything, it has pretty high base stats, at 500 total. It has lots of Attack, decent defenses, and ok Speed. Its high Attack makes it a good physical sweeper, especially with its ability Guts, which increases Attack when it has a status effect.

  1. I really loved this pokemon in Gen II. It was a hard one to get. There is a female version of the horn it has a heart shape – quite romantic.

    I dunno why but the fact that it has wings makes me want it to learn flying TM Aerial Ace.

  2. This one has a small error. Where is should say “#214 Heracross”, it instead says “#628 Braviary”

    Just thought I should bring this to your attention.

    Keep up the great work! Love the walls=]
