A Fire and Steel-type Pokemon, Heatran has made a surprise appearance during Raid Battles.
Niantic has surprised Pokemon Go fans with the introduction of the Legendary Pokémon Heatran. From now and continuing through the new year, the Fire and Steel-type Pokemon, Heatran will be available as the Raid Boss in Raid Battles. Get your Water, Fighting or Ground-type Pokemon and be ready to capture the Legendary Pokémon.
Heatran is a Legendary Lava Domed Pokemon that demonstrates an affinity with Fire that bears a Steel body. Heatran is able to learn Fire, Bug, Steel and Rock-type moves that will help this Pokemon survive in numerous situations, making Heatran a good member of your team. However, each Pokemon displays weaknesses and in this case, Heatran is vulnerable to Water, Fighting and Ground-type Pokemon.
To gain the best advantage, using either Groudon or Rhyperior Pokemon to take down Heatran easily with their Ground-type skill set. Ground-Type moves will inflict the most damage compared to Water and Fighting-type moves.
If you do not have either of those two Pokémon mentioned, you can use Golem, Swampert, Donphan, Flygon and Rhydon as worthy replacements.
You will have the chance to encounter this Legendary Pokemon from now until 15th January 2019.
Don’t miss this chance to catch this Legendary Pokémon before it returns to its mountain home! Stay safe, and happy exploring!
