Heatran (ヒードラン) is the 485th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Fire/Steel-Type, and is known as the Lava Dome Pokémon.

Heatran uses the Flash Fire Ability, which increases the power of its Fire-Type moves by 50% if it gets hit by another Pokémon's Fire-Type move. A second Ability is available to Heatran from the Dream World, the Flame Body Ability. This Ability has a 30% chance of afflicting an opponent that uses a move requiring physical contact against it with a Burn.

Heatran doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

Heatran is in the Undiscovered Egg Group; like most Legendary Pokémon Heatran cannot breed. It takes Heatran 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

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.

Spin-Off Games

Heatran can be found at the Summit of Giant Volcano in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. In Mystery Dungeon 3, the only way to obtain a Heatran is to enter a Password.

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.

Trading Card Game

Heatran is listed in the Diamond/Pearl, Diamond/Pearl/Platinum and Pokémon Rumble Promo sets, the 2009 Movie Premiere Pack and Pokémon Organized Play Series 8 as a Rare Card. Heatran is listed as a Rare Card in the Legends Awakened (2) and Arceus sets. Heatran is listed as an Ultra Rare Lv. X Card in the Stormfront set.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Heatran resides in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling as a versatile Pokémon that can perform defensive and offensive roles. It serves as a great balance breaker thanks to its high Special Attack stat, having Magma Storm to trap certain foes, and coverage options like Earth Power and Bloom Doom to lure in and take out certain checks. Heatran is also capable of serving support roles and can spread status or set up Stealth Rock for its team. The best Heatran set is a Substitute set that utilizes Magma Storm and Toxic to trap and wear down defensively inclined Pokémon like Mew and Zapdos. It can also run a specially defensive set that can serve as a consistent check to the likes of Celesteela, Mega Mawile, and Tapu Lele, while also providing Stealth Rock and Toxic support. Heatran also can use a trapper set with Groundium Z or Grassium Z, with the former being able to smash Toxapex while the latter takes care of the likes of Tapu Fini and Pelipper. Lastly, Heatran can utilize a Choice Scarf set that gives it revenge killing capabilities, being able to take out Pokémon that it would normally be forced to switch against such as Mega Medicham, Landorus-T, and Mega Pinsir. The Choice Scarf set has a variety of attacking options to utilize apart from its powerful STAB Fire Blast, from STAB Flash Cannon to take care of Tapu Lele to Stone Edge to hit Mega Charizard Y and Volcarona. While Heatran is a top tier Pokémon, it suffers from having a relatively mediocre Speed stat and the use of coverage moves from Pokémon like Volcarona and Magearna that it would otherwise be able to check.

Trivia

Despite being a Legendary Pokémon, Heatran is not genderless, and it has an equal chance of being either male or female. Heatran is the only Legendary Pokémon without a set gender; other Legendary Pokémon, like Latios, Latias, and Cresselia, have genders, though they have only one gender possibility apiece.
