Im jumping on the Heracross bandwagon for the Attack and Speed. The only drawback is the 4x Flying weakness but that can easily be remedied with Stone Edge

I would choose Heracross because Scizor has a double weakness against Fire type attacks.
Formerly Sith_Lord_Darth_Krushya. I turned to the light side so I could be of better use to the community. I'm a Jedi Knight. My character's name is Goen-Tog Etya. First name, Goen-Tog (pronounced: Go-in, Tahg.) Last name Etya, (pronounced, et-yah). Play on words for "goin' ta get ya." You can either call me "Goen-Tog" or "Master Etya." LOL. Have a nice day.

I personally prefer Heracross.

It depends very much on what kind of Pokemon you like more.

Heracross is offensive and Scizor is defensive. Scizor's Attack is high, but not enough to classifies it as a sweeper and the only fact that turns it into a defensive Pokemon is the metal steel type, and not the defensive base stats.

They're both 4x weak to a certain type of move. Heracross for flying and Scizor for fire. Once that fire is more common to find out and Defense is something that you can raise up with Bulk Up, I think that Heracross' weakness is easier to get along the battles than Scizor's.

Heracross also got a rare move named Megahorn which is 120 power and 85 accurate. Scizor doesn't have any powerful move like that. If you want to turn Scizor into a sweeper you'll need to use some TMs on it.

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.
