Ok so in White 2 I just found a Heatran with Flame Body.
How did this happen?
This is not a ROM and it is a legal game that was purchased at a store. It is not a Heatran from the DW. I ran into it at Reversal mountain and did not receive it from a trade and this also happened a few times before. I do not hack and do not own a working Action Replay.

Yes it's illegal.

Reason why?

Heatran hasn't even been released with it's Hidden Ability Flame Body.

So I can only assume that the reason you encountered Heatran with Flame Body is because your game has been hacked some time in the past with some type of modifier code.
