Heatran Raid Guide For Pokémon GO Players: January 2022
This Friday, Kyurem is leaving raids, ending the era of Tier Five Dragons that began in December with Reshiram and Zekrom. Replacing Kyurem, but just for a week, is Heatran. With this Raid Guide, you can prepare a team to take on this Legendary from the Sinnoh region, perfect your catching strategy, and potentially even catch a Shiny Heatran.
Top Heatran Counters
Pokebattler, which calculates all possible combinations of Pokémon and moves, lists the top 10 Heatran counters as such:
Garchomp: Mud Shot, Earth Power
Rhyperior: Mud-Slap, Earthquake
Therian Forme Landorus: Mud Shot, Earthquake
Incarnate Forme Landorus: Mud Shot, Earth Power
Groudon: Mud Shot, Earthquake
Shadow Swampert: Mud Shot, Earthquake
Excadrill: Mud-Slap, Drill Run
Shadow Flygon: Mud Shot, Earth Power
Rhydon: Mud-Slap, Earthquake
Shadow Mamoswine: Mud-Slap, Bulldoze
It is recommended to power up your counters as much as possible, but creating that amount of strong Shadow Pokémon with their moves unlocked is a tall order for even the most practiced players. Here are ten additional non-Shadow and non-Mega counters that can help take down Heatran with efficiency.
Golurk: Mud-Slap, Earth Power
Krookodile: Mud-Slap, Earthquake
Golem: Mud-Slap, Earthquake
Donphan: Mud-Slap, Earthquake
Swampert: Mud Shot, Earthquake
Flygon: Mud Shot, Earth Power
Mamoswine: Mud-Slap, Bulldoze
Seismitoad: Mud Shot, Earth Power
Haxorus: Counter, Earthquake
Ho-Oh: Ground-type Hidden Power, Earthquake
How Many Trainers Are Needed?
As a dual Fire/Steel-type, Heatran has a double weakness to Ground-types which Pokémon GO players can exploit. This double weakness to typing makes Ground-type moves dominate the counter list, making a normally middle-of-the-road Pokémon like Flygon more effective against Heatran than any Mega. Because of this, two expert trainers with the above counters will be able to take down Heatran. If you can’t guarantee that, aim for three to four.
Using the Circle Lock Technique to guarantee Great or Excellent throws, along with Golden Razz Berries, is the best way to catch Pokémon.

Shiny Odds & 100% IVs
The Shiny rate for Legendary Pokémon is approximately one in twenty.
When looking for a Pokémon with the best stats, the 100% IV Heatran will have a CP of 2145 in normal weather conditions and 2681 in boosted conditions.
Happy raiding, fellow trainers!
