Heatran is one of the many Legendary Pokémon you can encounter in Pokémon Go. If you catch it, you may want to use it in other battles against trainers or in raids to beat some of the more difficult options in the game. When using Heatran in combat, you want to make sure it has the best attacks. Here's what you need to know about the best moveset for Heatran in Pokémon Go.
Heatran is a Fire and Steel type Pokémon. It will be weak against Fighting, Ground, and Water-type moves, but is resistant to Bug, Fairy, Dragon, Flying, Grass, Ice, Normal, Poison, Psychic, and Steel-type moves. Thanks to its variety of resistances, you will be able to face different types of Pokémon.
These are all the moves Heatran can learn:
- Bug Bite (Bug type) - 3 damage and 3 energy per turn (3 damage per turn) - 1 turn
- Pinwheel of Fire (Fire type) - 9 damage and 3,3 energy per turn (3 damage per turn) - 3 turns
- Flamethrower (Fire type) - 90 damage and 55 energy
- Fire Blast (Fire type) - 140 damage and 80 energy
- Iron Head (Steel Type): 70 damage and 50 energy
- Stone Edge (Rock-type) - 100 damage and 55 energy
When selecting a quick move for Heatran, you want to use fire rotation. It's a better attack than bug bite, providing more energy and overall damage. Additionally, Heatran is Fire-type, which gives him a STAB modifier in combat, increasing the damage of the attack.
Next, you want to consider what charged moves to give Heatran. He has a few options. We highly recommend that you go with Flamethrower and Stone Edge of the four choices. Flamethrower is a powerful Fire-type option that can give Heatran a decent STAB modifier when using it. When it comes to using the stone edge, this is a good Rock-type move that makes Heatran effective against Bug, Fire, Flying, and Ice-type Pokémon. Some players typically mistake the stone edge for the iron head, but we believe the overall damage of the stone edge makes it a far better option.
The best move set to give Heatran is the quick fire spin and the flamethrower and stone edge charged moves.
