Since your Scrafty lacks Shed Skin to (somewhat consistently) cure any status it gets, you can consider Lum Berry over Lefties to let it shake off a status problem (only once); Scrafty really hates getting statused mid-sweep or while setting up DD.

Just a random thought, but the Nidos can kind of help with your Heracross problem, since they resist its common moves (Megahorn, Close Combat, Stone Edge), even though they do take a lot from Guts Heracross' Facade:
