Why this guy is a Fire type is beyond me. Since when were ant-eaters fire types? Now a fire ant I would understand being a Fire/Bug type. This guy should have been a ASteel type and Aianto a Fire/Bug type. Although they do already have Urugamosu...

Ability: White Smoke

EVs: Attack, Sp Attack, Defense Nature: Sassy

Will-o-wisp: Burn! Burn! Hahahahahahaha!

Heat Wave: Burn! Burn! Burn with a 10% chance and high power!

Shadow Claw: A good move to have to deal with Psychics and Ghosts.

Taunt: Stop the foe from using stat moves.

Flamethrower-A good STAB powered attack is always fun.

Hidden power [Grass]-this guy needs some kind of coverage.

Sucker punch-Everyone is just gonna finish this guy off, so sucker punch is actually useful.-covers extra types.

will o wisp/Amnesia-If you want to boost his stats, or cut though your opponent's attack.

Heatmor is one of the worst Fire-types. I mean, let's face it.

Since you're not gonna be using this guy more than one or twice in battle before he faints, might as make the best of it. :3

  • Hone Claw
  • Inferno
  • Focus Blast
  • Flamethrower

I'm a big fan of Hone Claws. Raising Attack I'm not worried about, it's the Accuracy(: Inferno has a slim chance of hitting, as well as Focus Blast, so with Hone Claws it'll increase the Accuracy by a lot. You're not going to be in the battle very long anyway, so might as well do some damage. c:

Stockpile makes everything better.

Heatmor@Weakness Policy
Ability: White Smoke/Flash Fire

Stockpile- Boosts both defenses so now Heatmor can take hits.

Giga Drain- Heals and covers all weaknesses.

Flamethrower- STAB.

Sucker Punch/Will O' Wisp- Sucker Punch is the main reason to use Heatmor over other fire types in NU. Will O' Wisp can save you from Earthquakes and Stone Edges. Natures also change depending on which move you choose.

252 HP/128 Def/128 SDef EVs. Brave or Modest nature.
