This always bothered me, the question of how to catch a heracross or a pineco...

After going to Gamefaqs.com, It said to headbutt trees on various routes. But, when I did so, all I got were eggsecutes, Spearows, Pidgeys, and in elix forest Caterpies, metapods, and butterfrees. I headbutted trees over 500 times at various times of day, bud did not get anything. Can someone help me???

Pineco- Try Headbutting trees in the Ilex Forest a lot of times.

Heracross- Headbutt the trees on the route right of Ecrutek:

Ecrutek ===> Route you need to go to.

Also I think Pineco are normally found in forest areas such as the ecruteak route and it is found in Ilex forest only you would have to headbutt alot of trees to find it.

Heracross can be found near mountain areas. Like the trees near Mt.Morter.

Odd. Well, I found my Pineco in the northern area of Ilex Forest. I never found Heracross.

I think that Heracross are found in mountain-area forests, i.e. Mahogany Town. Pineco can be found anywhere, and they are very common.

Pineco have a tendancy to kinda blow up though so go prepared! Heracross can run and do a fair bit, so take pokemon acordingly.

Heracross can be foung by headbutting the trees right outside of the town you started off in. I found Pineco by headbutting the trees west of Ecruteak City.

The best place for Pineco IMO is just to the left of where you had to fight that bloody sudowoodo, as for herracross, I'm not sure...
