I’ve got to admit the shiny Heatran is a little disappointing. The promo image I saw a couple of weeks ago showed the red color in the body as quite bright – almost glowing. (That would have made it one of the few shinies that actually looks like a shiny version of the normal.) The reality looks virtually the same as the normal Heatran, but with purple in the eyes.
I still want it. But it’s a bit of a letdown. (Almost as big a letdown as not having gotten one, yet…)
