Mawile (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Encourage
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Sucker Punch
- Iron Head
- Rock Slide
- Fire Fang
^ If you want a moveset for Mawile, look here:
Aggron can combat all its weaknesses because of the large amount of tms it can learn. it can learn a lot of move tutor moves aswell like ice punch, thunder punch, fire punch, dragon pulse and aqua tail.

For me the best moveset for Aggron is this

Nature: Adamant
Ability: Sturdy
Item: Liechi Berry
Evs: 252 Attack / 230 Speed / 28 HP

Stone Edge
Aqua Tail

The trick for this strategy is using Automatize to raise Aggron's speed then, and even If Aggron get's OHKO, it still has sturdy to make him resist any move. If that happens, Liechi Berry will raise Aggron's attack making him capable of not only outspeeding dangerous foes but also beating the crap out of a lot of Pokemon. It works fine for me.

Aggron@Custap Berry. Sturdy
Stone edge
Metal burst
Iron head

It works amazingly.

care to explain?
Hmm, I think you may need to rethink that move set. Maybe switch metal burst with earthquake or other string physical move. If you need something like endure, maybe substitute or protect would be the better option.

Aggron@choice scarf
252atk, 252 spe, 4hp
Rock head, Jolly

Head smash
Iron head
Aerial ace
Aqua tail

Aggron@zoom lens
252 atk, 252sp.def, 4hp
Rock head, sassy

Head smash
Iron head
Aerial ace
Aqua tail

The first moveset is supposed to be unexpected and be faster than Pokemon with less than 300spe. Head smash is 1.5 times stronger than stone edge, goes well with rock head, and has the same accuracy as well as good stab, iron head has good stab also, while aerial ace and aqua tail are good coverage against those 4x effective moves.

The second moveset is supposed to withstand special moves without the use of sturdy. It has zoom lens so head smash and aqua tail won't miss. The decrease in speed means it will be able to utulise the effectiveness of zoom lens. Maxing out the sp.def allows it enough bulk to take down some special sweepers.

Hope this helps :)

Aggron@ choice band/rocky helmet

nature: Adament


iron head(good power, high acc, STAB)

heavy slam(he is heavy)

sandstorm(to raise SPdef 50%)

double edge(rock head!)

Aggron with high defense and SPdef can be really annoying. It also has a high attack, heavy slam is good for heavy Pokemon like aggron. It also has high acc and STAB.

Hope this helps

Gen VI moveset
Aggron is a powerful, physical wall that needs to be used more in X and Y
Ability: Rock head
EVs: 252 Atk/ 200 Def/ 52 Speed/ Speed is needed to outspeed threats like Tyranitar
Item: Choice scarf
Earthquake: Must I explain?
Head smash: Egg move, because of rock head, you can have a non-recoil, 150 power STAB move! It is a must for this guy.
Iron head: Powerful STAB, chance to flinch, 100 accuracy, no drawbacks, a very good move
Dragon claw/Brick break: All three are coverage. Dragon claw for all the dragons in OU.
Brick break is for threats like excadrill and tyranitar.

Mega Aggron's ability is Filter, not Heavy Metal. That is Aggron's hidden ability.

If you are verging friends or someone else who isn't going pro or is good, I suggest the following:

Francium (F) @ Rock Incense (or any other item that increases damage)
EVs : Anything divided between HP, Atk or Sp. def

Ability: Sturdy (if it has Head Smash then Rock Head will be better)

Thunder Wave

Autotomize ( or rock polish)

Stone Edge (or Head Smash if possible)

Iron Tail (or any other high damage PHYSICAL move)

This is by no means an automatic win, and is probably the worst move set for online competitive play, but I find this great for sweeping someone who doesn't strategise and also people that just want a quick battle.

Aggron @salac berry
Jolly nature
EVs: 129 Attack / 129 Sp Def / 252 Speed
Ability: Rock Head
-hone claws (boost attack power and accuracy of moves)
-head smash (powerful STAB and no recoil!)
-iron tail (strong STAB, chance to lower foe's defense
-dragon rush (flinch chance) / earthquake (coverage) / sandstorm (sp def boost)
Head Smash is too precious to leave out! Iron Tail is one of the most powerful steel type move for Hone Claws is a must.

I am currently training an Aggron with ability rock head and a lonely nature, but using a power belt, and I will change her item to a focus band or focus sash once I complete her training .
She currently knows
-double edge
-head smash
-metal burst

the double edge and head smash are both high damage and reasonable accuracy, the avalanche and metal burst both get me the benefit of low speed to withstand the first double super effective attack and dish it right back

Mwahahahaha... the mighty Aggron. I like using this set, as no one - at all - sees it coming. Go figure.

Aggron (M) @ Weakness Policy/Focus Sash

Trait: Rock Head

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

Automize (Sharply raises your speed! Great set up move with Focus Sash, or if you get a chance)
Iron Head (STAB, accurate, the whole shebang)
Head Smash (Same as Iron Head, except with 150 power. Wow)
Stealth Rock/Earthquake/Superpower (Really up to you here)

Works great in doubles with a Fake Out user to stall the biggest threat while Aggron sets up. He can sometimes take super effective hits to activate Weakness Policy, but fighting or special attacks are a problem. Play him well, and all the shops will be wreaked.
