Welcome back, Trainers! In this installment of Generation Preparation we'll be taking a look at the Legendary Pokémon Heatran and what it is expected to be like in Pokémon GO.
CATEGORY: Lava Dome Pokémon
TYPE: Fire / Steel
HEIGHT: 5' 07"
WEIGHT: 948.0 lbs.
MAX CP: 3521
PLACE IN THE META: Heatran, a Legendary Pokémon, is going to be a very good addition to Pokémon GO. Its double weakness to Ground is unfortunate, but its stats are phenominal. In fact, calculations show that Heatran will be the best Fire-type Pokémon if given the right moves. Heatran is a Fire- and Steel-type. This makes it weak to Water- and Fighting-type attacks; four-times weak to Ground-type attacks; resistant to Normal-, Dragon-, Flying-, and Psychic-type attacks; as well as highly-resistant to Steel-, Fairy-, Grass-, Ice-, and Bug-type attacks.
LIKELY MOVEPOOL: Out of the Fast Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Heatran:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Heatran:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Heatran's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 4, Heatran gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution.
Thanks for reading, Trainers!
