...what the hell is Heatran supposed to be?

Almost all Pokemon have something you can trace them back to. A creature, an item, a concept. Legendary Pokemon especially, which are usually based on some sort of mythical or religious creature.

But Heatran... I don't see it. It's... I don't know. I even checked Bulbapedia, but they just said it's based on lava and steel and might be a turtle. That's it.

Can anyone help me figure this creature out?

He's based on a furnace.

Heatran is most likely based on volcanic remains. Its Steel-typing references how the Earth's inner core is made of solid metal under immense pressure. It may also be based on a turtle, as the Pokémon Platinum Pokédex entry states that it is melted in parts because of its own heat and in the artwork, bits of metal, which may possibly be a melted shell, can be seen on its body.

It represents the molten iron core of the earth.
Other than that, no clue.

Heatran is also the only non-event Legendary that doesn't have a counterpart/isn't part of a trio. Even Cresselia has Darkrai and Mewtwo has Mew.
He needs an Ice/Ground (or something) counterpart in Gen VI.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Exactly! A turtle that looks like an icy mountain or... Something.
