How Many Trainers Are Needed?

Heatran is a fire and steel type Pokemon, both of these types are weak to ground types.

Trainers can take advantage of this weakness.

You should be able to take down Heatran with three to five trainers.

This also relies on the counters you bring to battle.

Weather To Look Out For

Watch out for snowy weather conditions.

These conditions will boost Heatran's steel type attacks.

Sunny/clear weather will boost its fire type attacks too.

Although if you're bringing ground type Pokemon it won't matter too much as these weather conditions boost ground types too.
