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.
