PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Iron Tail usually beats Dragon Tail on offense due to STAB, but they are close.
  • Heavy Slam shares typing with Iron Tail, but Stone Edge’s superior type coverage is likely more useful.
  • Don’t use Thunder on offensive Aggron.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Iron Tail usually beats Dragon Tail on defense due to STAB, but they are close.
  • Heavy Slam is Aggron’s only multi-bar charge move and can be tricky to dodge.
  • Stone Edge is nearly impossible to react to, but a demotivated Aggron will struggle to use it against its counters.
  • Thunder is like Stone Edge except with no STAB and a different effectiveness profile.

PVE Overview

Aggron does not stand in a good place by way of any PVE meta. Its attack stat is low, its only synergetic moveset is of the offensively poor Steel type, and while it has a high defense stat, its secondary Rock typing gives it double-weaknesses to the ubiquitous Fighting type, as well as Ground. On raids it's one of the poster-Pokemon for "please don't use this", and in gym defense its huge defense is betrayed by how quickly it's knocked out by Machamp. Its only tiny niche might be in gym attacking where it's fairly potion efficient, though it will likely need to be switched out frequently due to its host of weaknesses.

On top of all of these problems, a Metagross sporting Meteor Mash can pretty much do everything that Aggron can but better. Its only remaining hope is that when Gen 6 rolls around it gets a few new niches thanks to its Mega evolution, which loses its secondary Rock typing.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Tail+Stone Edge and Heavy Slam

Dragon Tail frequently lives in the shadow of its more well-known counterpart, Dragon Breath. However, it does sport a very solid 3 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.33 EPT (Energy per Turn), making it an objectively good attack on virtually any Pokemon thanks to its good power and fantastic coverage. Stone Edge (100 Power/55 Energy) is an objectively great STAB move, hitting hard for a fairly low cost, while Heavy Slam (70 Power/50 Energy) sacrifices power to come out just a bit faster.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Aggron sits in an odd place in the Great League. It's a massive threat to top-tiers such as Altaria or Lugia, but it's also trivial for other Pokemon such as Lucario or virtually anything packing Fighting or Ground coverage. As such, it's got a very deep but also very thin niche as a potential counter-pick that requires a lot of team support to be truly effective. However, it's also very outclassed in areas within this niche by Bastiodon in particular, who sports the same typing, but a much better stat distribution for the tier.

Ultra League: 2 / 6

Aggron's performance is virtually the same in the Ultra League, where it just has a different set of Pokemon that it can counter/Pokemon that counter it. Here, it has particularly good matchups against Dragonite and Lugia in particular, but it lives in fear of Fighting and Ground coverage moves, both of which are fairly common. Sadly, the tier is home to better Rock and Steel types that can fill its role to a much better degree.

Master League: 3.5 / 5

In the Master League, Aggron's full potential comes out, allowing it to act as a wall to much of the tier thanks to its high defenses, good moveset options, and plethora of resistances. If Aggron resists the attacks of a Pokemon in the tier and that Pokemon doesn't resist Aggron's moves in return, chances are very high that Aggron is going to win that matchup. In fact, it can win many matchups where it doesn't resist the opponent's attacks simply by virtue of its defenses. However, Aggron requires that its trainer have a good idea as to what Pokemon may be packing Ground and/or Fighting type moves in particular, as well as a shield or two to protect it from any mistakes, as it falls like a house of cards to strong moves of these types in particular. This makes Aggron's addition to a team a matter of opportunity cost, as many other Pokemon perform better with shield investment, and many other Pokemon can cover at least part of Aggron's niche fairly well. Still, if your team has need for Aggron's very specific skills, it won't disappoint.
