Heatran (Japanese: ヒードラン Heatran) is a dual-type Fire/Steel legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Legend has it that Heatran was born from the flames of a volcano when Dialga, Palkia, and their relatives first created the universe. The lava from it pooled together to become Heatran.

Heatran is a tortoise-like creature with a reddish-brown body that has orange and gray spots. Heatran has metal bangles locked on its legs and the four claws on each of its feet are in a cross formation. Heatran has a gray underside, its face is covered by an iron mask and it has red-orange eyes. Whenever it is seen with its mouth open, an orange glow eminates from inside it. Because of its intense body heat, certain parts of its body are melted slightly out of shape.

Trivia

Origin

Heatran is most likely based on volcanic remains. It's Steel-typing referances to how the earth's inner core is made of solid metal under immense pressure.

Name origin

Its name comes from the words heat and possibly transfer. The "-tran" may also come from transition metal, referring to its status as a Template:Type2 (note that steel itself is not a transition metal, but an alloy of one). The "doran" in its Japanese name can also be read as "dran", so it may be a combination of "heat" and "dragon".
