[OVERVIEW]
Heatmor is a slow and frail mixed attacker; thus, it is outclassed by other Fire-types such as Rapidash and Ninetales thanks to their better bulk and Speed as well as access to boosting options.

[SET COMMENTS]
Heatmor, thanks to its access to Fire Lash, might look like a budget Centiskorch, which was banned from ZU thanks to its insane wallbreaking power mainly due to this move; unfortunately, Heatmor doesn’t hold up to that title, being both weaker and frailer than Centiskorch and having less useful coverage moves for common metagame threats. It is also outclassed by more reliable Fire-types like Rapidash and Ninetales, which are faster and bulkier, and they also have access to better coverage and boosting options.

- In the overview, I changed the second 'and' to 'as well as' to avoid a clunky phrase with two uses of and.
- Meta threats -> metagame threats; shortened words are always written out.
- Fire-types is plural, so Rapidash or Ninetales should be changed to Rapidash and Ninetales,
- The last sentence doesn't actually work as a list; lists have to be parallel. When you split this list into its separate parts, you get:
It is outclassed by more reliable Fire-types, which are faster.
It is outclassed by more reliable Fire-types, which are bulkier.
It is outclassed by more reliable Fire-types, which are have access to better coverage.
- The last one doesn't fit the same structure of the other two, so the list doesn't work grammatically and needs to be split up. This is the same reason why I changed 'and' -> 'as well as' in the overview instead of just making taht a list too, as that would not have had a parallel structure either.
