 Game Information
 Original Games
Heatran can be found at Stark Mountain in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. However, Heatran won't appear on the first trip, as Buck will accompany you on your first excursion into Stark Mountain and take the Magma Stone in Diamond and Pearl. After speaking to Buck in a house at the Survival Area, return to Stark Mountain and Heatran will be where the Magma Stone was.
The way the sequence works is different in Pokémon Platinum, but Heatran also appears on the second trip.
In Black 2 and White 2, Heatran can be found inside a small room in Reversal Mountain. The Magma Stone is required to encounter it, which is located on one of the highest cliffs on Route 18, an area that can only be reached after defeating the Elite Four and obtaining the National Pokédex.

Heatran is a Boss Pokémon in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. It is the boss that is encountered at Volcano Cave. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Heatran is also a Boss Pokémon, as it is the boss of Faldera Volcano.
Heatran can be found at any and all Magmas in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.
