Heatran, a legendary Pokémon from Gen 4, debuted in Pokémon Go at the end of 2018.
Originating in the Sinnoh region, Heatran is a fire and steel-type Pokémon, which makes it very effective against grass and bug-type Pokémon, among others.
Like all Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Go, Heatran can be found in five-star raids. This means that if you want to add Heatran to your Pokédex, then it's a good idea to gather a couple of fellow trainers to assist you in battle.
If you're lucky, then you might get the chance to catch a shiny Heatran.

Everything we know about Heatran
Heatran made its first appearance in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, where it could be found in the post-game area, Stark Mountain. It's notable as being the only Legendary Pokémon that can be either male or female.
Heatran is also currently the only fire and steel-type Pokémon. This unique combination supports the belief that Heatran was based on volcanoes; the fire-type references the lava, while the steel-type represents the inner core of the earth.
This legendary Pokémon made its first appearance in Pokémon Go from December 2018 to January 2019.
