Pokémon GO

Some new information has been released about the upcoming mobile title, Pokémon GO. In this, it details how the battles work. Battles work in gyms where you use two moves on your Pokémon and can control them through the touch screen. Using this, you can dodge attacks by swiping left or right. If you win the battle, the prestige of the gym is lowered and if it hits zero, the controlling team of the gym loses control and your team gets control. Prestige can be increased by training your Pokémon at the gym.

Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the second generation. This powerful Pokémon thrusts its prized horn under its enemies' bellies, then lifts and throws them. With its Herculean powers, it can easily throw around an object that is 100 times its own weight. Heracross charges in a straight line at its foe, slips beneath the foe's grasp, and then scoops up and hurls the opponent with its mighty horn. This Pokémon even has enough power to topple a massive tree.Heracross has sharp claws on its feet. These are planted firmly into the ground or the bark of a tree, giving the Pokémon a secure and solid footing to forcefully fling away foes with its proud horn. So, here it is, the one-hundred & thirty-fourth entry, Heracross & Mega Heracross.
