Clash of the Bugs! Pinsir vs Heracross!

Not open for further replies.
Heracross, because in B/R/Y Pinsir didn't have any bug type moves and it still doesn't today, its a useless bug pokemon and does not take advantage of its type.

Walking Contradiction

Feed Us a Fetus
This is a stupid question.
Heracross obviously cause he's kick-a*s dual type with Megahorn and BrickBreak. Or alternatively, an Endure-->Reversal @Salac berry owns. Pinsir is no contest for Heracross cause it's so limited in almost every way.

In my opinion Heracross is better but Pinsir is so much better designed than Heracross. However Heracross has that 4x weakness to flying but he also has some gud moves including MEGAHORN. There arent tooo many good bug attacks and fortunately he has one of them.



Every team in OU metagame usually has a Heracross weak

I think heracross, Its megahorn is a awesome move, Plus heracrosses stats are better.



Never forgotten
Heracross with Salac berry then rest it STABBBBBBs bad(Especially with Choice Band if not using swords dance)


I'm baaaaaack
Heracross: Looks awesome, Fighting type, extreme attack.
Pinser: Fugly, Not good attacks, Plain bug not useful for the moves learned.
shouldnt this have a poll?? anyways yeah heracross is much better because it learns attacks like megahorn, the strongest bug type move.
heracross, because of STAB moves

Someone Prove That Pinsir Is Better Than Heracross


I'm a little Seedot.
FYI: They're Both The Same In Strength, What They're Based Off Of, And They Both Learn Pretty Much All Physical Moves!

Heracross without a doubt. I just think he's got better moves than Pinsir.


Never forgotten

Megahorn Heracross > Pinsir's Bug attacks(none)
