Aggron, The Iron Armor Pokémon. It claims an entire mountain as its own territory. It mercilessly beats up anything that violates its environment. Ot vigilantly patrols its territory at all times. If its mountain is ravaged by a landslide or a fire, it will haul topsoil to the area, plant trees, and beautifully restore its own territory.
A Good Moveset for Aggron would have to be this:
Strategy Using Aggron
This really is designed to be a Choice-Bander, but
some people can't use those effectively and with a
good attack stat it'll still do acceptable damage even
without that 1.5 boost, although if you want to go
non-CB you may want to get a Speed Boost (and
preferably an Attack Boost) Baton Passed to Aggron.
Max out Attack and Speed if you are using the Choice
Band with this set.
Strategy Against Aggron
There are two things that make Aggron a UU (I don't count that Surf weakness since it was never designed to take special hits anyway), a 4x weakness to Fighting type attacks and a 4x weakness to Ground type attacks.
- Strong Fighting and Ground attacks alongside strong Special Attacks (that are at least normally effective) are the way to take down Aggron, namely Earthquake, Cross Chop/Brick Break/Focus Punch and Surf.
- A nice Will-o-Wisp will nullify its only other good stat, its 110 Attack stat. You shouldn't be considering paralysing it since it isn't exactly the fastest Pokémon available (though if its got some speed behind it paralyse away).
- If your opponent has an Aggron on his team, and you can place a decent bet that it'll get switched in, predict the switch and use a Special, Ground or Fighting typed attack (or switch to a Pokémon with one). Nothing is more annoying (for your opponent) than switching in an Aggron only to have it get KOed in one move (which happens a lot with Aggron) before it even attacks.
A good Contest Moveset for Aggron would have to be this for the Tough Contest best with Impish, Lax, Relaxed or Bold Nature:
Strategy Using Aggron
If you do the attacks in this following order you should have very few problems; 1st - Harden, 2nd - Take Down, 3rd - Harden, 4th - Take down, 5th - Hyper beam
