Heatran, it's sweeping the nation, and it will soon be sweeping you. Bulkytran Doubles/Triples set Heatran @ Shuca Berry/Air Balloon/Sitrus Berry 216 HP/252 SpA/40 Spe Modest/Quiet Nature - Heat Wave/Eruption - Earth Power - Protect - Substitute/Hidden Power Ice This Heatran is meant to take hard hitting attacks, and retaliate with even harder ones. The EVs provide heatran sufficient bulk, power, and speed to outspeed some key threats Heatran makes a useful bulky attacker thanks to its 12 immunities and resistances Sitrus Berry allows Heatran to gain back most of it's health after being hit hard by an attack, and allowing it to get off a substitute even while at low health. Air Balloon on the other hand provides Heatran with a rather nice Earthquake immunity, until it is targeted by another attack. This can be used to run along side garchomp as a rather competent partner. With a Sitrus berry and the provided bulk, heatran will most likely be able to fire off a powerful eruption with the right support, but Heat Wave is more viable in most situations. Substitute can be used for Heatran to set up on a fake out, while hp ice can be useful in getting rid of annoying dragon types that heatran can't hit like salamence. A faster set isn't as viable since few of heatran's most common threats sit in a speed tier heatran can reach with max speed. Destroys Sun and Sun Abusers Eruption can only be ran with a Quiet nature, so don't try to yell at people for a modest eruption heatran. Scarfed Singles Heatran @ Choice Scarf 4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe Timid/Modest Nature - Overheat - Fire Blast/Flamethrower - Earth Power - Hidden Power Ice This set is much more straight forward for the much more straight forward singles battle metagame. This is very simple to use, switch in, use powerful devastating attack, switch out. Flamethrower and Fire Blast are used instead of Eruption when you aren't in a good position to switch. Use whichever one you wish, power vs. accuracy thing and all. Hidden Power ice can be used to nab a suprise KO when up against a lead dragon like Garchomp. However be warned that since this is GBU, this will inevitably lead to many, many ragequits. Earth Power hits Ground weak pokes, STAB yada yada Comments/Other Stuff/Good team partners In Singles, Heatran can function well on its own, as it can beat most things out there. However, since Yache Berry is a popular item on Garchomp, be warned that hp ice isn't the most effective move to use against it, and to pack a counter just in case. Someone with more Single Battle experience can say what good partners are In doubles, some good ideas are: fake out support, in order to set up substitute A partner using earthquake with Heatran's Air Balloon. Or to catch an opponent by suprise you could always eq+protect As amazing as RainTran is, the "man" has told me that RainTran is a horrible idea, so you shouldn't run Heatran in rain (man trying to keep us down >:( ) Yay for writing this at 2 AM, so i have an excuse if i missed something!
