    Note: I'd appreciate it if someone could take care of the writing that i post, since it probably won't be up to quality
    <p>Heatran is an extremely potent pokemon. It has STAB on fire, which allows it to use heat wave to great success. It also has what most other fire types lack, which is bulk. Having ten resistences and 2 immunities allows Heatran to be able to wall offensive behemoths like Latios and Abomasnow. However, it is not without its drawbacks. Having a 4x weakness to ground type attacks makes the common move earthquake extremely dangerous for Heatran. Additionally, being weak to Fighting lets a fair amount of common pokemon defeat heatran, like Terrakion and Conkeldurr. If one can look past these falts, Heatran could be a vitle asset to a team.</p>

    <p>This set is used to allow Heatran to abuse its many resistances to allow setting up a substitute much easier. When partnered with a Fake Out user, Heatran's partner can force the opponent's largest threat to heatran to be unable to do anything, allowing it to easily set up a Substitute. Heat Wave is desireable for hitting consistantly hard, while Eruption can be used to power off an extremely powerful attack. However, it has drawbacks such as relying on having high hp to use it effectively, as well as forcing Heatran to have a Quiet Nature.</p>

    <p>This set counters sun very nicely, as it provides an immunity to the most common fire attack, heat wave, which makes the opponent think twice before using it and giving heatran a free boost. Heatran should never be used on a rain team, as it reduces this sets main attribute, powering off powerful spread attacks from behind a substitute. Hidden Power Ice can be used over protect, but should only be used if the team its used on is substantially week to common dragon types.</p>
