PVE Offensive Moves Explanation
Fire Spin and Flamethrower is Heatran’s optimal mono-Fire attacking set.
Fire Blast is a bit behind in DPS, but also less efficient as a 1-bar move.
Bug Bite is the worse move in the situations where Heatran is useful.
Iron Head is better for attacking Ice and Fairy-types.
- Stone Edge has no role on gym or raid offense.
Heatran got a ton of hype prior to its appearance in the game master, where it ended up with the inferior Fire Blast. While its DPS doesn’t keep up with Moltres or even Flareon, Heatran is the bulkiest Fire attacker to date. It also has 10 resistances, 6 of which are double resistances.It can anchor steel, bug, fairy, Ice, and grass raids to a degree that is unrivaled, but its definitely DPS is behind the other fire-types.
In the main series, Heatran has its own signature attack named Magma Storm, meaning it may see greater power in the future.
