Anyone think it should say in the "Origin" section that the Hercules beetle is, weight-for-weight, the strongest insect (strongest ANIMAL, actually) in the world? That would explain how it has such an immense Attack for a Bug-type. Diachronos 16:41, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Go for it. TTEchidna 19:56, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

The trivia in this article says that Heracross is the only non-flier to learn Aerial Ace by level, but I'm sure Diglett does too... That's certainly not a flier -- User:Gastly's Mama

Diglett can learn Aerial Ace, but only through a TM. Heracross can learn it by level though. PDL 01:14, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

I added more to his origin based on what I know about the Hercules mythology. I just remembered this yesterday when discussing Heracross with a friend, it's an amazing parallel. --Ginocoolowski 17:11, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

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. 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. Also these pokedex entries make vague reference to both qualities of Antaeus, his strength when in connection with the ground and that he was a wrestler. --Ginocoolowski 17:15, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
