Heatmor is a Fire Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Ground, Rock and Water moves. Heatmor's strongest moveset is Fire Spin & Flamethrower and it has a Max CP of 2,395.
"It draws in air through its tail, transforms it into fire, and uses it like a tongue. It melts Durant and eats them."
Fire Spin is slightly superior stats-wise, but pulls ahead even further due to STAB. Lick may be beneficial in certain PvP formats due to its typing.
Power-Up Punch may have been nerfed following the September 2019 move rebalance, but it can still be useful for baiting shields and boosting Heatmor's damage output. Flamethrower takes advantage of STAB and is overall a solid move that supports Heatmor's Fire-type role. Thunder Punch can provide coverage against Heatmor's weakness to Water-type opponents, in addition to common fliers.
Heatmor is an interesting addition to the PvP scene due to its unique moveset, which includes Power-Up Punch and the unusual options of Lick and Thunder Punch. Its moveset options lets Heatmor stand out from traditional Fire-types and offers a different style of play with PuP mechanics. A relatively high ATK stat however, limits Heatmor's overall bulk due to the Great League CP cap, and weaknesses to common typings makes it a risky pick. Overall a unique Pokemon which adds more diverse plays to the PvP scene, but may be stronger in restricted formats which can limit its vulnerabilities.
With a max CP of 2395, Heatmor lacks some stats needed to reach the Ultra League CP cap. While it can be effective against common Steel-types, access to Lick is insufficient in dealing with the meta-centric Giratina or bulkier Psychic-types like Lugia.
Heatmor doesn't have the stats needed to perform well in Master League.
