Heatran is one of the few Pokémon that you can capture in Pokémon Go by participating in Five Star Raids. These raids are only available for a limited time, which means you have a small window to capture a Heatran with the best stats. You can take a variety of trainers to participate in these raids, and the more of them you have with you, the more likely you are to take him down. Like many Pokémon, Heatran can learn a variety of moves.
It is a Fire and Steel-type Pokémon, which makes it weak for Water-type and Fighting-type attacks. However, he takes double critical damage when hit by a ground-type move. Due to the limited number of weaknesses, it shouldn't be too difficult to fit Heatran into a reliable roster for your Pokémon team. Additionally, it is resistant to Insect, Fairy, Grass, Ice, Poison, Steel, Dragon, Flight, Normal, and Psychic type moves. Considering how many resistances it has, you can probably build your team of three Pokémon around it to win plenty of battle championship matches.
Here are all the moves Heatran can learn:
- Bug bite (bug type) (5 damage, 12 energy gain)
- Fire Spin (Fire type) (14 damage, 9 energy gain)
- Flamethrower (fire type) (70 damage, 140 energy)
- Fire Blast (Fire Type) (140 damage, 140 energy)
- Iron Head (steel type) (60 damage, 120 energy)
- Stone edge (rock type) (100 damage)
Fire spin will be your preferred option for Heatran. It's a great option that can do a lot of damage and give you a reasonable energy boost. For your load moving, if you just have to choose, stone edge is your best choice. It's a powerful attack that you can use quite frequently, especially with fire spinning. For PvP fights, you want to use the stone edge and the flamethrower.
You should find yourself taking down plenty of trainers in the Ultra and Master leagues with a well-balanced Heatran with fire spin, stone edge, and flamethrower.
