Talk:Heatran (Pokémon)

Um...A Hydra? How's that possible? I only see one head on that thing!--Pokencyclopedia 18:05, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

I was wondering the same thing myself. Although I do believe the Hydra posessed only one head until hercules started chopping them off. --Zeta 19:33, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

Nope, that's only in the Disney movie. It already had several heads when Heracles first confronted it.KrytenKoro 11:31, 15 June 2008 (UTC)


Is it really 0x fire damage to Heatran? -Gab

Yes, due to its Flash Fire ability. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 12:11, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Relation to Dialga and Palkia

"Heatran was born from the flames of a volcano when Dialga, Palkia and their relations first created the universe. The lava and magma pooled together to became Heatran." I've only ever seen this here. I don't recall it ever being mentioned at all in the games. Seriously, does every Sinnoh Legendary have to be related to be related to the creation myth?--Dual 01:19, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

I think Buck's grampa says it. - Vereux0

Even then lava and magma are the same thing so it doesn't make any sense. The only difference between the two is that one is made above ground and the other underneath it. -Lord Hyren 23:26, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Evolution?

I know Heatran is a Legendary and can't evolve, but the official Prima guide for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2 says something different. In the back of the book there's a Bulbasaur-Darkrai Pokédex. It has a part where it shows the evolution line for that Pokémon. If a Pokémon doesn't evolve, it says "Does not Evolve", but for Heatran, it says "*" and under it, it says "*Check the official Pokémon website in the future for a possible announcement about Heatran [pokemon.com]". YinYang 21:26, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Ooh! I just found out is has the same thing for Giratina YinYang 21:29, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
It's mabye the new forms or a big mistake in the book CoolPikachu!
Hmmm... So that means Heatran might appear in movie 11, eh? TTEchidna 05:48, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
Mabye wat woulf Heatran have to with a movie a small-role,camao appearence?who knows CoolPikachu!05:50, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
We're probably just gonna have too wait and see. To be honest, i didn't/don't think Heatran is going to be in the new Movie...I just had a feeling it won't. Takoto タコト 06:01, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
Too many legendaries in one movie= Terrible movie. Posted by the OptimatumTalk|Links07:30 10 May 2008
Yes it is too many Pokemon Legends they need to save some for the NEXT MOVIE'.

CoolPikachu!

As far as Legendaries go, I don't think Heatran will make a good movie subject. It doesn't have an exciting a backstory as the rest. They need to just go ahead and make an Arceus movie. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 15:48, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

i think it will appear in the eleventh movie cuz of the deck set: cry from the mysterious\temple of anger as heatran is shown in the pack art and in that article it says that it the deck will debut around the time of the elventh movie.--Nobody777 14:30, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

The people at Prima who make the Pokémon guides are IDIOTS. In the Pokémon Colloseum "guide", they said that BAYLEEF should be used to take down the GOLBAT used by one of the trainers in the Pyrite Town square; anyone who's actually played these games knows that a Golbat would kick a Bayleef's ***.

If you're going to use a Player's Guide for these games, go for the Nintendo Power ones (even if the guide quality has declined since Nintendo Power was bought by that other magazine company). Diachronos 17:04, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
Not every Prima guide's terrible. Yes, they do put out some crappy ones, but they put out a quite excellent one for the Gamecube version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Sure, there are a few errors in that guide (a 100-Rupee chest was put down by Prima as being at the Bridge of Eldin and not the Great Bridge of Hylia where it actually is, and they missed two chests in the choking mists of Faron Woods and one more in the Gerudo Desert), but it's probably one of the best game guides I've ever used despite those errors.
Case in point: Judge the trash by what's inside, not by a logo on the outside. --Shiningpikablu252 17:44, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
Oh, you have a point, the Twilight Princess one was pretty good. Must be it's just the Pokémon ones that have what seems like a minimum of 3 mistakes per page. Diachronos 15:55, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

So Heatran really do have a new form, given the new evidence! I wonder if they'll create a 4th version of DP and have it as the mascot! Um, or they will simply give out a item that will transfer it to the new form in a event!-Billy4b2004 11:34, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

We've not seen a fourth version except in the Japanese Generation I.. so I Disagree. Gywall Talk 11:45, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Well. I've the PMD2 pokedex like brochure on the net,it wasnt really a good resolution and captions were written to clarify, same thing written about heatran evolution and giratina evolution, so we got a 50% chance that Pokémon A in movie 12 is a new forme heatran OR Arceus.--Nobody777 11:55, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

movie 12

Heatran is officially included in movie 12, read serebii to see.--Nobody777 16:11, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Already mentioned in the article. ×Kevzo8 02:43, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

In Movie 11?

This article repeats a claim I have never seen substantiated, that Heatran appeared on a stone mosaic in Movie 11 along with a number of other Legendaries. I would like to see proof of this. --The Great Butler 01:45, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Seconded! Morgil27 07:12, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Breeding?

Noticing that it has a low hatch rate like Manaphy and unlike other legendaries, and being the first legendary that can be either male or female, how does this sound for trivia, after the current note about it's hatch rate. Different wording would probably be good though.

    • Because of this, it may have originally been intended to be able to breed. [[Derian]] 13:56, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Largely baseless speculation. It's a no-go. —darklordtrom 21:58, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Legendary Pokemon?

Just wondering, what exactly makes Heatran a Legendary Pokemon? What sets it apart from say Snorlax, or Rotom? I mean it has a gender for Pete's sake! Blake Talk·Edits 23:27, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

It just is. It's been confirmed several times. Alpha CuboneKing 23:29, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Thats what I am wondering. What confirms that? Is it in-game text, or an announcement on the Pokemon website? Blake Talk·Edits 23:43, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Salamander?

Heatran doesn't look reptillian, and would also be Fire/Dragon and not Fire/Steel if it was really a salamander, I'm dropping this. - unsigned comment from Gorebyss (talkcontribs)

Name?

Couldn't it be possible that the "tran" in Heatran's name could be from TRANsgender or TRANsexual? --Mr.lol 14:24, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

The prefix for those words is trans-, not tran-. And I don't see how this could relate to Heatran. --Maxim 14:28, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Heatran can be either gender. --Mr.lol 14:45, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Not fastest hatch rate of legendarys

It says in the trivia of Heatran's page that it and Manaphy have the fastest hatch rate of all legendary pokemon. This is false since Heatran has a hatch rate of 11 cycles, whereas Mew has a hatch rate of only 2 cycles. Blaze B75 23:23, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Heatran CAN breed.

On THREE different copies of Pokemon Diamond, me and my brother captured heatran (all females, I might add) and placed each one in the breeding center with a Ditto. End result: A ton of little baby Heatran running around. It was kinda crazy. Unfortunately, at least two of the copies seem to have disappeared but as soon as I find the third- WAIT I think I know where my Soulsilver is, I could hack in a Heatran with a pokemon modifier or something. But the point: Heatran are NOT in the No-Egg group, at least not in Diamond/Pearl. Note that the Trivia section mentions the inability to breed.

EDIT: I will add a video link as soon as it's successful.

Your Buddy Bill 00:34, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

If you hack it then you can't say it's true. If you give me a liget non-hacked/cloned/modifier then we will prove it. Truthseeker4449 00:41, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
Hey, well, he never said that the Heatran were hacked. Still, I want a hundred percent proof. --☆ヨッシ の世界☆ 00:46, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
Tried out my Heatran (which is a boy). "The two prefer to play with other Pokémon more than with each other." So there's my response. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 00:49, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
If he uses a Pokémon modifier, then he could skew the resuts and the trustworthyness of the test Truthseeker4449 00:52, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
If I show the AR codes used (to show that it's ONLY changing the pokemon to a heatran or someting like that) will that be proof enough for you? I guess all the Heatran we put in in DP were female, if that has anything to do with anything. Your Buddy Bill 12:40, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Being male or female has nothing to do with it, "The two prefer to play with other Pokémon more than with each other." There's your answer, Heatran can't breed. Not only is it concrete in the game's code, do you honestly not think that someone would have tried breeding their Heatran before in the past 5 years? - Blazios talk 14:00, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

The Weather Quartet!

I just got some similarities with Heatran, Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza: They represent the earth's core, the earth's landmass, the earth's sea and the earth's sky. Together they represent water, earth, fire and air. They are all created at an indispensable part of earth. They all are also guardians of a treasure of the seven treasures.

Anime-Only Moves

I don't wanna go changing it myself because I suck at tables and stuff but... Eruption isn't an anime-only move. It's an event move. Me, Hurray! (talk) 13:42, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
