Nintendo’s latest additions to the Pokemon franchise, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, have captivated gamers around the world with their exciting new features. One of the most thrilling aspects of these games is catching the legendary Fire-type Pokemon Heatran.

Understanding Heatran’s Abilities
In order to successfully catch Heatran, players must first understand its abilities. As a legendary Fire-type Pokemon, Heatran is immune to damage from Fire-type moves. It instead takes bonus damage from Water, Ground and Fighting type moves. This means that any effective team used for catching Heatran should include some Pokemon of those types.
