Pokémon GO Raid Battles are heating up once again—the Fire- and Steel-type Legendary Pokémon Heatran is finally blazing a trail into Pokémon GO Gyms. Originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, Heatran makes its dwelling in volcanic caves and is sure to be one of the most coveted Fire-type attackers in Pokémon GO. Be sure to add it to your lineup before it disappears from Gyms on January 15, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. PST.
To catch Heatran, you can use only the Premier Balls you earn from defeating it, so it's crucial to be prepared. Help your team take over the Gym before the raid starts, battle alongside your friends, and pick Pokémon that will perform well in battle to maximize your chances.
