Despite all of

Gligar can shrug off anything Heracross can throw at it and nullify the damage with Roost.
Zapdos, another flying type, can take both of Heracross's STAB moves but has to be wary of Stone Edge.
Heracross can’t hurt
Bulky Ghost-types also find it easy to switch into Heracross's Bug- and Fighting-type attacks.
with his STAB moves
, Zapdos like the aforementioned Ghost types can take both of Heracross's STAB moves but has to beware of Stone Edge
ast scarfers like Victini and Darmatian can OHKO Heracross with th
eir powerful Fire-type STAB
. Heracross also has access to Swords Dance which can be used with a Status Orb to beat most of its usual counters but can rapidly rack up damage and does no favours to Heracross’s middling speed. Heracross can also run a ResTalk set activating Guts and healing itself in the process this set can also absorb sleep from common sleep inducers like Roserade activating the Sleep Clause therefore preventing your opponent from putting any other pokemon on your team to sleep but this set is quite unreliable so it needs more team support then its normal sets. Even with these flaws Heracross shouldn’t be taken lightly since it can easily sweep a weakened team on its own.
As far as Heracross’s abilities go Heracross should always use Guts since the ability to gain from a burn rather than be crippled by it is too good for Heracross to pass up. Heracross’s DW ability Moxie is currently unrealesd but when it is it will be a much better option for the Choice Scarf set but would benefit more from Guts on all the other sets.
I'll finish this later...
