Heatran (Japanese: ヒードラン Hiidoran) is a Fire/Steel-type Legendary Pokémon in the Sinnoh region.


Heatran appears to be a tortoise that with gray and orange spots on it along with a reddish-brownish color. Heatran also has metal bangles on all four of its legs. Heatran also has four metal claws attached to its feet. It also has an iron mask and orange eyes. Heatran as well possesses gray and yellow spots all over its body along with a gray underside.

Special Abilities

Heatran has the ability Flash Fire and the Dream World ability Flame Body. Flash Fire allows it to be unaffected by Fire-type moves and powers up its Fire-type moves instead when hit by a Fire-type move. Flame Body may give the player's Pokémon a 30% chance of being burnt when attacking Heatran with a physical move contact. It is also the only Pokémon that can learn the move Magma Storm.

In Game

Heatran is one of the few legendary Pokémon to have a gender. It can be male or female. Although the female cannot have an egg, even with a Ditto.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl

It lives at the top of Stark Mountain. You can encounter Heatran by going to the top of Stark Mountain with a trainer named Buck so that you can help him find the Magma Stone. Buck will then take the stone and leave Stark Mountain, causing the mountain to begin to act up. After you talk to Buck in his house, he will return to the mountain go put the stone back. Go back to the top of Stark Mountain and Heatran will be there in the place of the Magma Stone. Heatran is encountered at level 70 Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl.

Pokémon Platinum

Heatran can be caught at the top of Stark Mountain. When the player goes to Route 225, the rival and Crasher Wake will warn you about the Pokémon. If you go along the route normally, you will meet Buck, who will ask you to go on patrol for "goons in space suits", alias Team Galatic grunts. When you reach the mountain, there will be Galatic Grunts, who will head into the mountain. The player will have to follow them inside. Inside, the Galatic Commanders will challenge you to a battle, with Charon to escape to steal the Magma Stone. Buck soon arrives with his Claydol, and will heal your injured Pokémon. After Looker stops the theft of the Magma Stone and arrests Charon, Heatran can be caught at Level 50 after visiting the Battleground and returning to the cave in Stark Mountain.

Pokémon Black and White 2

Just like most of the other legendary Pokémon available for capture, Heatran is only able to be captured after the game is complete. But first, you must find the Magma Stone. It is located on Route 18, near the P2 Laboratory. You can also meet Crasher Wake along here, too. Anyway, the player can fly back to Lentimas Town, head to Reversal Mountain and capture Heatran. It is Level 67.

Pokédex Entries



Heatran appears to be based on a turtle along with some volcanic remains.


  • Heatran is the only Legendary Pokémon that can be either a male or a female, where as Latias and Cresselia can be only female, and Thundurus, Tornadus, Landorus and Latios can be only male. They are the only Legendary Pokémon that can retain a gender.
  • Even though Heatran has a gender, it cannot produce eggs because it is still a Legendary Pokémon.
  • Heatran is the only Fire/Steel type Legendary Pokémon (not including Arceus with the Flame, and or Steel plate)
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Heatran.
  • Heatran is the only Legendary Pokémon with a gender that can be hit by Ground type moves, that is, under normal conditions.
  • Heatran and Kyurem are somewhat similar because Heatran's body is partially melted because it's heat was "too hot" and Kyurem's body is partially frozen because it's "power leaked out".
  • Heatran has the most double-resistances of all Pokémon yet, with 4: Grass, Bug, Ice, and Steel.
  • It and Moltres are the only non-dragon type Pokémon to have a double resistance to grass
