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, four metal claws attached to its feet, an iron mask and orange eyes, and also possesses gray and yellow spots all over its body along with a gray underside.
Heatran has the ability Flash Fire and the Dream World ability Flame Body. Flash Fire allows it to be unaffected by -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.
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.
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 Galactic grunts. When you reach the mountain, there will be Galactic Grunts, who will head into the mountain. The player will have to follow them inside. Inside, the Galactic 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.
Just like most of the other legendary Pokémon available for capture, Heatran is only able to be captured after the game is complete, but you must first 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.
Heatran does not evolve.
