Flavor Text
X This powerful Pokémon thrusts its prized horn under its enemies' bellies, then lifts and throws them.
Y With its Herculean powers, it can easily throw around an object that is 100 times its own weight.
Omega Ruby 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.
Alpha Sapphire 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.
