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.

I might as well put this here, this is fear aron.

AronhaxFTW (Aron) (M) @ Shell Bell

Trait: Sturdy

EVs: none

any nature

  • Endeavor

The idea with fear aron is to have a pokemon set up sandstorm, and later Aron comes in, your opponent attacks you and knocks you down to sturdy, or set up a calm mind or something, aron uses endeavor, knocks them down to low enough HP for sandstorm to take them out.
do the same thing on the next pokemon.
Things to watch out for is Steel, ground and rock types along with pokemon with magic guard or magic coat and, none of them will be damaged by sandstorm making this fail.
also watch out for ghosts as endavor does not affect them.

A youtuber called TheFlamingSpade came this i would believe, so the credit goes to him.

This is the best possible moveset for Aggron. You could replace Iron Head for Iron Tail, but I wouldn't. Just watch out for Ground and Fighting types. ANother option is to add in Aqua Tail. It has good power, decent accuracy, and it deals with Ground types. You could replace either Iron Head (bad type coverage) or Double-Edge (no type coverage) for it. Here are some other Aggron options, in order from best to worst. However, yours is probably best, Aqua Tail included or not. Movesets:

  1. Mega Attacker
    Head Smash: Egg move. High power, STAB, with Rock Head, no Recoil!
    Double-Edge: High power, high accuracy, no recoil with Rock Head.
    Iron Tail: High power, STAB, good chance to lower Defense.
    Earthquake: Obviously.

  2. Weaker Mega Offense
    Iron Defense: Raises defense.
    Double-Edge: High power, high accuracy, no recoil with Rock Head.
    Earthquake: Of course.
    Head Smash: High power, STAB, no recoil with Rock Head.

  3. Even Weaker Offense
    Sandstorm: Damages the foe and raises Aggron's Sp. Def.
    Earthquake: Yes.
    Double Edge: No recoil with Rock Head, high power, high accuracy.
    Rock Slide: Decent power, STAB, decent accuracy, good chance to cause flinching.

Ah, in my HG, I just use Mewtwo
In my Emerald, sometimes I need a psychic type too.
Gardevoir is good, but it doesn't have that great of moves until Generation 4.
I say metagross is better(no offense swampert)
None taken, Metagross is AMAZING, I just like aggron better.
Is there an item to go with the mega attacker set? if so tell me

Head Smash: Why wouldn't someone use this?

Aqua Tail: Type coverage.

Ice Punch: Further type coverage.

Earthquake: Even more type coverage. Powerful move.

You can also replace Head Smash with Stone Edge for a lucky critical hit. Substitute and Focus Punch also causes some damage and makes Aggron hard to take down.

Never thaught of Substitute.

Aggron Adamant nature. EVs: 52 HP / 252 Attack / 204 Speed. Item Choice Band/Leftovers. Ability Rock Head.
204 Speed EVs are important to outrun 75 Base speed pokes and slower who don't invest in Speed.
Obviously when using Choice Band, Stealth Rock is questionable.

Head smash Extremely powerful move, stab plus no recoil thanks to rock head.

Aqua Tail hits Ground-types for solid damage.

Earthquake hits Steel-types that Aggron might have trouble with and has pretty good coverage.

Heavy Slam/Stealth Rock Heavy Slam is a nice secondary STAB move, and if your team lacks a Steath Rocks supporters, Aggron can reliably set up his hazards..

Here is an awesome one

Aggron (252 Attack EVs,252 Defense EVs,4 HP EVs)

Moves:-
Double Edge
Head Smash (STAB)
Earthquake
Iron Head (STAB)

Use the ability Rock Head to prevent recoil damage due to Double Edge and Head Smash

Focus Sash gives it the Sturdy effect.

It's like having 2 abilities in one.

(PS- Watch out for Ground type attacks)

I'm not sure this squeezes everything out of this build but this is my Mega Aggron offensive tank which can take quite a beating.

Aggron (M) @ Aggronite
Ability: Any (Mega Aggron's Filter trumps them all)
EVs: 200 HP / 56 Att / 252 SDef
Careful Nature
- Rest
- Sleep Talk
- Heavy Slam
- Power-Up Punch
Start by buffing his attack and damaging the opponent with Power-Up Punch. Mega Aggron will come last in most any fight so you plan ahead so that you can Rest up his HP on the turn his hp is brought down to a 1 hit KO amount. Rest is also there to remove any pesky status effects the opponent tries to bring him down with. Now once he's asleep Mega Aggron needs to survive three attacks in order to rest up again. So now your either in a good position to Sleep Talk for those next two turns or your opponent hits like a truck and your forced to either swap him out for something that can better deal with it. Or hope and pray Sleep Talk triggers an attacking move and does enough damage to remove that threat. Bring him in with his def and sp def boosted via baton pass and he'll be even more impossible to bring down.

I FINALLEH GOT AN AGGRON!!!!!!
Anyways, this is what I gave him.

Sh**Brick (Aggron)(M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Rock Head
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
-Autotomize- He needs this, raises his speed to where he might be able to sweep, maybe...
-Head Smash- STAB and its basically the best move ever with Rock Head.
-Earthquake- Why not?
-Brick Break- Coverage

So basically, if there's a pokemon with a Water, Fighting, or Ground type move, you can kiss your iron dinosaur behind goodbye.

Dang, surprised this set wasn't even posted yet.

Aggron @ Aggronite
aggron
Ability: Sturdy --> Filter
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Autotomize
- Iron Head
- Façade/Stone Edge
- Earthquake

With 252 Speed, you can basically outspeed almost everything in OU barring Choice Scarf and priority after an Automize, which isn't that hard to get up considering Aggrons bulk and access to Sturdy when not mega evolved. Iron Head is STAB with the nice flinch change, Façade laughs at people trying to TWave or WillO, and Earthquake is nice coverage.

Aggron is my second favorite!

Iron Head - Flinches, STAB.
Head Smash - Powerful STAB.
Ice Punch - Covers this guys greatest weakness; ground. Also covers grass, dragon and flying.
Earthquake - Too obvious.

Aggron @Chople Berry

Nature:Impish (-Sp.Atk +Def)
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Def, 4 Sp.Def
Trait: Rock Head

Curse
Superpower
Head Smash
Ice Punch

Simple. First, Aggron uses Curse to increase the Attack and Defense stats. Then it can OHKO or at least 2OHKO anything with its attacks.

answered Nov 28, 2012 by StormBorn
Give it bulk up/ work up instead, aggron is already super slow, you don't wanna add to that factor, it can cause you problems!

Aggron @ Liechi Berry

Evs: Attack and Speed

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
Automatize
Earthquake
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.
