Pinsir and Heracross have nothing to do with each other other than they're both bugs. Might as well give Tropius and Carnivine a shared pre-evo. --- Your opinion differs from mine, therefore you are a troll.
And Pinsir needs an evo way more than he needs a pre-evo.
Also, they're completely different types of beetles. While that doesn't nessicarily exclude a shared pre-evo (Bellossom and Gloom / Vileplume have little in common either) I'd rather not arbitarily tie them together just because they're beetles in general. --- ~ Master of Electricity ~ Electro: 0518-6613-7620 - Pokemon White
Deny, unless the pre-evolution in question can also evolve into Scyther, as well as both Pinsir and Heracross getting evolutions. Last I checked, Pinsir's always been counterparted with Scyther; people have been crying foul over the matter why Scyther got an evolution at first chance while Pinsir still hasn't ever since the second generation, while nobody's been crying foul over the same for Heracross... --- I am a die hard Pokemon fan to the most, including the traditional hate of Yu-Gi-Oh.
From: Catcher_Freeman | #009 Yes, but the fact that Pinsir is a stag beetle, and Heracross is a kabutomushi makes their intended relationship obvious.
No relationship between Pinsir and Heracross is obvious. There is more evidence towards some kind of relationship between Pinsir and Scyther, though.
Scyther is exclusive to Pokémon Red, FireRed and Diamond, while Pinsir is exclusive to Pokémon Blue, LeafGreen and Pearl. Also, they are both Gen I Pokemon and are both rare in the Safari Zone. --- The University of Tennessee Alumni http://i40.tinypic.com/10p3kmw.jpg
