Heatran is one of Pokémon Go’s many potential raid targets that appears in tier five raids. Our Pokémon Go Heatran raid guide lists out Heatran’s best moveset, counters, and weaknesses.
Heatran best counters and weaknesses
To grab your very own Heatrean, use fighting-, ground-, or water-type moves. It actually has a double weakness to ground-type moves, so those are your best bet. Some of Heatran best counters and weaknesses include:
- Groudon with Mud Shot and Earthquake
- Excadrill with Mud Slap and Drill Run
- Swampert with Mud Shot and Earthquake
- Garchomp with Mud Shot and Earth Power
Watch the weather for a boost to your moves. Sunny or clear weather boosts ground-type moves, rain boosts water-type moves, and cloudy weather boosts fighting-type moves.
Heatran best moveset
After grabbing your Heatran, set it up with Fire Spin and Flamethrower to maximize its DPS capabilities in raids and gyms.
Can Heatran be Shiny?
Lucky players may encounter a Shiny Heatran. If you do see a Shiny, you’ll catch it on the first ball you hit it with, so use a Pinap Berry to score some extra candy.
