    Pinsir vs Heracross

    VS


    The second of the last two threads I'm going to make before I leave tomorrow. Originally, I wanted to make it a Scizor vs Heracross thing, as those were the two stand out Bug types of Generation II. But since Scizor is busy in his own vs thread against Scyther, I'll do this instead.

    Pinsir and Heracross are two Bug types that don't have a direct, in-universe connection to one another but are still very much tied together. For a while before GSC hit the stores, Heracross was assumed to be an evolution of Pinsir. The reveal of Scizor as Scyther's evo just fueled the theory. Needless to say, lots of people were pissed when the rumor turned out false.

    Still, even in the anime, they share a bond as Pinsir and Heracross were seen fighting for territory in a Johto episode.

    The fact that they have the same BST and play very similarly to each other helps a lot too.

    So, which do you prefer?

    Which is more useful?

    Who would win in a battle?

    I'm going with Heracross here. Mostly because I've trained one (several, actually) and I've never been disappointed. I've never trained a Pinsir though. I also like Heracross' design more. It looks tough but playful. Pinsir just looks scary

    Probably Heracross

    Heracross- everything about the design is better, plus it can fly around, which Pinsir can not.
    More Useful?
    Err, Heracross definately, adds a fighting type that can fight off bug types, but it does earn a x4 weakness to flying in doing so. Still, its worth it.
    Who would win?
    Heracross again. Stone Edge would pwn him, and I think he can learn aerial ace too.

    I like Pinsir more just because it looks much more badass then Heracross. Plus it learns Gulliotine. Anything that learns that will always be awesome.

    I like Heracross way better.

    It has the better typing and better design, IMO.

    Honestly, I never liked Pinsir.

    Never used Pinsir, nor have I ever wanted to. Scyther was the superior bug, so I never had a need to use Pinsir. Heracross I have used a few times and haven't been disappointed. I love Heracross's typing as well, Bug/Fighting and it has a massive attack stat to back it up.

    Well, even though I like Pinsir over Heracross, the latter is unfortunately the stronger of the pair, thanks to its great movepool (Heracross gets Megahorn, Night Slash, Aerial Ace, Pursuit and Shadow Claw, compared to Pinsir's Stealth Rock, Quick Attack and Guillotine), great typing and obviously better bulky stats (Heracross is bulkier overall, thanks to low Special Attack making way to better stats). Anyway, even though Heracross had undisputedly trrumped Pinsir in many ways, Pinsir will still be my favourite of the two.

    Pinsir wins because of several reasons.

    One swords dance + Giga impact + focus sash= victory.

    Heracross has poor def.stats than pinsr.Also it does not have that 4X weakness against flying type unlike Heracross.And of course it knows moves as much as Heracross does.But it actually depends on the strategy part.

    I've always liked Heracross more, in design and because it can fly.

    I prefer Heracross because of its weird typing and its face. Also it can defeat Pinsir in any battle.
    I have dodged many things, but that is not why I am a dodger. I just like wearing striped shirts.
