It is boosted by Sunny and Snow weather, and leads to its capture CPs being in the following ranges:
- 2058-2145 CP for a regular Level 20 encounter
- 2573-2681 CP for a Sunny or Snow weather boosted encounter (Level 25)
Heatran has a stat composition of 251 Attack, 213 Defense, and 209 Stamina leading to a Max CP of 3754. It can be duoed fairly easily, but otherwise we would suggest you take on Heatran in groups of 3-7, for high level players, or 8-20, for lower leveled players.
When a Pokémon is doubly weak to a typing, you can be sure that typing will be a common theme in a raid guide. Just like Tyranitar Guides have a load of Fighting types that rarely come out, so too will this guide with Ground types.

This list will be updated, as we are awaiting any new evolutions coming along that might tip the counters, such as Mamoswine and Garchomp.
We also have the raw output from the Go Hub simulator, showing the top twelve against a Heatran (Unreleased Pokemon are included).
Heatran has access to the following moves:
- Fire Spin Fire and Bug Bite Bug
- Fire Blast Fire, Stone Edge Rock, and Iron Head Steel
The worst moveset to face is going to be Fire Spin or Bug Bite with Iron Head, while the easiest ones will be when it has Stone Edge. As far as moves go in actual usage, Heatran got a terrible movepool, so it’s only real time to shine may be in PVP.
|Sunny||Allows a Level 25 Encounter from Weather Boost. Boosts Ground counters||Boosts Heatran’s Fire Spin Fire and Fire Blast Fire moves|
|Partly Cloudy||–||Boosts Heatran’s Stone Edge Rock move|
|Cloudy||Boosts Fighting counter||–|
|Snow||Allows a Level 25 Encounter from Weather Boost.||Boosts Heatran’s Iron Head Steel move|
|Rainy||Boosts Water counters||Boosts Heatran’s Bug Bite Bug move|
This is a weather dependent boss as you can see. It needs to be stated though that in any weather condition, Rhyperior and Groudon are still the best. In Cloudy weather or Rainy weather, Machamp and Kyogre cannot compete with Rhyperior, much less the Continent Pokémon.
