Heatran () 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 has a large body made of magma, a large jaw, and a silver helmet-like structure on its head. It has four legs, each locked by a steel bangle.
Heatran doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.
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.
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's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Heatran resides in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling as a versatile Pokémon that can perform defensive and offensive roles. Heatran is often used as a specially defensive Pokémon that acts as a check to many top-tier threats by virtue of its typing and good bulk, such as Latias, Latios, Clefable, Talonflame, and Mega Scizor. Heatran also is an effective team supporter in this role with access to Stealth Rock and Roar, two great utility moves. Heatran's ability to use Taunt and Toxic in conjunction allows it to act as a stallbreaker of sorts, whether it be from its defensive set or offensive set with Magma Storm. Heatran can also use an offensive Air Balloon set that allows it to check Ground-types while still maintaining some support niche with Stealth Rock. Another surprise set that Heatran can run is a Choice Scarf set that gives Heatran the ability to revenge kill numerous threats like Mega Lopunny and Landorus-T with a strong Overheat. However, Heatran is not an impeccable Pokémon as it has weaknesses to common attacking types such as Water, Ground, and Fighting. These weaknesses also make Heatran susceptible to lures like Earthquake Latios and Superpower Mega Scizor.
Heatran doesn't learn any moves by way of Breeding.

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.
