Without Swoop Teleporter, your only chance of having a lone
Heracross is simply opening with it. The fact that Luna/Sol
will probably no longer be popular, and the fact that it has
mediocre attacks, makes the card overall weak.
Shining Horn is useful in unlimited, but there are other
basics that have the Poke-Body, (Skarmory) which are
probably slightly better.

Pretty mediocre basic from Dragon Frontiers. Shining Horn is
always a useful Body. Opening with a lone Heracross against
Castform decks can really slow them down. Dig Deep and Extra
Claws aren’t very good, but they can get the job done I
Stops Cleffa and Sneasel IF they don’t play Cessation
Crystal, but since they probably do, Heracross isn’t going
to be very useful.
Same thing as Unlimited. Shining Horn is too easy to play
around. Not very useful.
Pretty good here. Sometimes your opponent wont be able to
get any evolutions out in time, and will hang a lot of turns
trying to deal with Heracross.
and ratings are for Modified only.
Modified 1/5 - The metagame is simply dominated by Evolutions.
Thus, this card is worthless. The attacks are really weak.
Today’s Card Of The Day is…Heracross from Dragon
Well as a starter he is not the best choice, but his
power makes him limited gold!
30-50 damage for 2 energy is not bad, but in modified,
there are better choices. Although Dig Deep can be
useful to grab those discarded boosts, metal or darkness
Combos: This guy flies solo; he does his best work when
he is alone.
Modified: 1/5 Don’t see a use for him here, there are
Limited: 3/5 As a starter, great he will last a few
rounds because this format is dominated by basics. But
eventually you will have to play a bench.
Current ebay Value: $3.00 (Plus or minus $1 dollars)
P.S. Jeff Reynolds is the best T.O. EVER!

It can stop Sneasel? Loses to everything else.
The power is too dangerous and the attacks are
worthless. Evolve and ohko it for the win.
A nice body in limited, because most of the time you'll
be dealing with basics and you can see an evo coming and
being set up from a mile away.
Recycling energy is quite good and 2 for 30 is pretty
basic for this format.
A nice bit of bonus damage against ex's and it's
actually pretty good here.
