How to Find Heatran

Players may return to the Ancient Retreat after defeating and capturing the Omega Pokemon from the main story’s final battle and speak with Cogita. She will provide the player with many post-game missions, mostly involving collecting the remaining Plates to go meet Arceus. Players will need to accept Mission 22: The Plate of Firespit Island to find Heatran at the Cobalt Coastland’s Molten Arena. Once they’ve accepted the mission, they’ll find Heatran in the Lava Dome Sanctum.

How to Beat Heatran

Players can break Heatran’s shield by repeatedly throwing Balls of Mud at it. This will break its shield and allow players to attack it again and again. Luckily, these items are widely distributed throughout the arena, so players don’t have to worry about running out before the battle.

It is straightforward to destroy Heatran’s shield, but players must watch out for its aggressive attacks. It will hone in on players and cause significant damage to them. In order to avoid blacking out due to Heatran’s attacks, players should avoid running in a circle around it while dodging its attacks. They should also throw Balls of Mud to lower its shield. By throwing Poke Balls or engaging Heatran in combat, players can capture Heatran once the shield has been broken.

Due to the powerful attack moves like Psychic and Moonblast, and the fact that Lunar Blessing and Recover both restore her HP, this Psychic pokemon will be very difficult to defeat. However, you should have no trouble bringing down her HP quickly if you have Dark, Ghost, and Bug-type Pokemon.


Things To Remember

The Legendary Pokemon encounters in Pokemon Legends Arceus can be reattempted if the player kills them accidentally. In other words, don’t worry about saving beforehand, or perfecting your capture the first time. The post-game Legendaries can only be caught after returning to Jubilife City and returning to the area. There’s a ton more to do than catching them.
