Re: Heracross or Scizor?
I prefer Heracross basically because two reasons:
Heacross' type isn't that fragile as Scizor's. They're both 4x times weak to a specific type. Heracross is weak to flying and Scizor to fire. I think that fire is worse once that Heracross could use Bulk Up and gets more resistant of flying moves due the raise on Defense.
Heracross' capacity of learning moves is greater if compared to Scizor. It can learns the amazing Megahorn move, as well as Bulk Up and Earthquake. Counter is also learned naturally by level.
