Would Rollout work well on Aggron?

7 votes

I Dont Have a Rock Slide or Stone Edge Tm, however, I have lots of shards. So I was thinking of teachingmy Aggron Rollout, while Holding a Metronome, which, if I read correctly would Increase rollouts power. If Im Right, and it would increase Rollouts Power, Including STAB, How Strong Would Rollout be Each Time it gets stronger, how much Stronger would it get each turn? Or Should I Just Teach MY Aggron Rock Tomb and no Rollout at all? Im Confused, What Should I Do Here?

P. S. My Aggron has a Naughty Nature and Rock Head, as I Gave Up On Trying To Find An Adamant one:)

Swampert, you have to try breeding your Aggron if this is for HG/SS. Trust me, not only is it easier to make the nature conform to your wishes, it also can get you HEAD SMASH!!

I checked around and confirmed. It only boosts the first move, not all 5. Though it's not very accurate, and the foe can switch into something resistant to it, making it useless. god forbid if someone were to use defense curl beforehand...

That would probably work. Now, rollout has a base power of 30,but I cant find how much it increases by, but it seems, judging by rollouts that have hit my pokemon, I would say it goes up by about 20 every time. the metronome boosts power by 10% so it could go 33,58,85 etc. (30+3-10%-=33,33+20=53+10%=58) including STAB makes it harder though. get it? its kinda confusing, I know. All in all, if metronome is taken into effect after the rollout gets stronger, the bonus should also go up by a little more every time, but I wouldnt reccomend rollout. 5 TURNS open to status problems and other hazards without being able to switch? you may go in and not come out :(
