Is it ever worth it to use Defense Curl + Rollout? Or Rollout in general?

In order to defeat Wattson in-game, I was forced to teach my Aron Rollout. Fortunately for me, it happens to be Impish, and screw IVS, I'm transferring that and USING IT.

Would this set work?

Aggron @ Aggronite
Ability: Sturdy -> Filter
Impish Nature
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Atk
-Hone Claws
-Defense Curl

Help would be greatly appreciated.

I mean, you'll be getting a greater damage output with the likes or Rock Slide/Stone Edge for the first few turns, and this also frees up a moveset tab for an extra coverage move of choice.In my opinion, this is not a worthy strategy to use. Why?

  1. Rollout is not guaranteed to hit all the five turns with that shaky accuracy.
  2. The Extra move options Aggron can have will be welcomed rather than wasting its moveslot with Defense Curl and Rollout.
  3. Your success was in-game, and that does not compare to the likes of an actual human opponent, who can easily revenge you when you're stuck on Rollout.
  4. As stated above, Rollout leaves you open to revenge kills.

All in all, I wouldn't suggest using this strategy at all, you'll just end up foddering a good mega.
