Heracross might be a tiny blue-colored beetle, but if you go by its size you are sure to be fooled. For this Pokemon, whose name has been derived from that of the Greek hero Hercules, is extremely powerful. To put it succinctly, the Heracross, for all its small size, can hit extremely hard and boasts of having pretty decent defense statistic. However, it must be said that one negative point of the Heracross is its speed that seems to hold it back in crucial times. Nevertheless, you will always find that a Heracross that is well-trained is well-capable of leaving anybody cutting across its path with more than a bruise or two.
