Heracross can mega, pin missile t1, then cc (Or whatever really) to kill. Or heracross could bulk up t1 as non mega then mega and kill with close combat the next turn. The heracross matchup you stated also includes 2 possible t1 decisions (Counter or rock tomb), which makes your matchup a 50/50 anyway.Alright so while COVID-19 is tearing through my fucking life why don't I do this while I'm waiting

So basically the set is just you want to counter the two physical mons while also channeling your physical mon to obliterate whatever the fuck Empoleon does :)
-1 204+ Atk Heracross Close Combat vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Chople Berry Scrafty: 151-178 (55.7 - 65.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Scrafty Rock Tomb vs. -1 248 HP / 0 Def Heracross: 107-126 (29.4 - 34.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252+ Atk Scrafty Zen Headbutt vs. -1 248 HP / 0 Def Heracross: 282-334 (77.6 - 92%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Scrafty using Rock Tomb, assuming it lands, into Zen Headbutt, also assuming it lands, will always guarantee a KO.
-1 204+ Atk Heracross-Mega Close Combat vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Chople Berry Scrafty: 204-241 (75.2 - 88.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
Heracross Mega being an explosive beast outputs enough damage to where Chople is needed but without a negative defense nature,
Scrafty is unable to use Counter to full efficiency and OHKO.
-1 252+ Atk Teravolt Kyurem-Black Outrage vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Scrafty: 196-232 (72.3 - 85.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
Same thing for Heracross Mega but on top we are giving 0 IVs into defense for Scrafty because im lazy and want counter to OHKO
252+ Atk Scrafty High Jump Kick vs. 164 HP / 0 Def Empoleon: 404-476 (115.4 - 136%) -- guaranteed OHKO
I ran speed invest to beat this thing so I dont expect much from Endure + Petaya
