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.

Aggron
item:agronite/rocky helmet

EV's:252 def,252 atk,4 hp
-head smash-150 power+STAB with no let-up
-iron defence-to make him even more defensive

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.

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!

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
Moveset:
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)

Moves:
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 Aggron....so 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
-avalanche
-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.

Here's my personal aggron.

Aggron Bulky Melee Smasher

Aggron + Rocky Helmet
Calm Nature
252 ev's defence, 252 ev's attack, rest of ev's in spec. defence
Ability: Sturdy

+Iron Defense
+Automize
+Heavy Slam
+Heavy hitting STAB move. (Such as Stone edge, or Iron Head)

Lets take a Gallade/ Salamence.

Gallade's naturally high attack is cut down by aggron's high defence, making a 1-hit difficult, with sturdy preventing fighting from taking it down immediately, and with gallade being 6-7X less weight then aggron, it will be the equivalent of, well, getting stepped on by an aggron with the power 120 based on weight and gallade's weak defences.

Next is salamence. Many salamence are melee based, so using iron defense as you tank damage will bring your damage to almost nothing. when its max, automize until its full, allowing your speed to rival/ surpass salamence, depending on said salamence's nature, with stone edge dealing a 2X 120 move, and if you don't have it using a 100 power heavy slam. using stone edge right away is also helpful if it decides to use a special like flamethrower, as sturdy will not let it get killed off right away, while the bonus spec defense aids in the process.

Aggron@Aggronite

enter image description here
Role: Bulky Lead / Tank
Trait: Sturdy ------> Filter
EVs: 252 HP / 16 Def / 240 Sp. Def
Impish Nature
Moveset:

  • Stealth Rock
  • Thunder Wave / Roar
  • Metal Burst
  • Head Smash / Earthquake / Stone Edge

----------Explanation----------

Mega-Aggron is a lot like Mega-Steelix, but better. First off, its amazing Filter ability allows it to take less damage from super-effective attacks. Mega-Aggron's pure Steel-typing also gives it a plethora of resistances. In addition, it gets good Utility moves, such as Thunder Wave. Finally, it has an above average 140 base Atk and a sky-high base Defense of 230!

EVs are needed to give M-Aggron decent bulk. Because of its already high Defense, it needs minimal investment. The EVs in HP and Sp. Def help it to take Special Attacks better. Impish nature is required to further boost its Defense.

Stealth Rock is almost always a mandatory on Aggron.

Thunder Wave can cripple sweepers, while Roar gives M-Aggron an opportunity to rack up as much as damage as possible.

Metal Burst is a good move because Aggron can tank a move and retaliate back with a more powerful attack.

Head Smash gets good damage, but has a nasty recoil and doesn't get STAB when you mega-evolve. Stone Edge is a better alternative for avoiding recoil, but still does decent damage. Earthquake provides good coverage and deals with other Steel-types that can wall this set (ex: Ferrothorn).

----------Usage Tips----------

This set is primarily designed to be used as a bulky Lead, but it can also be used mid to late-game. In certain cases, you should hold off Mega-Evolving Aggron. For example, to avoid a super-effective Fire attack, you shouldn't Mega-Evolve and take neutral damage instead. Also, use Roar only on certain Pokemon. If you predict a switch-in, use a super-effective attack.

-Iron Tail: High Damage Physical Move + STAB
-Iron Head: Flinches + STAB
-Dragon Claw: Overall Coverage

I personally think that a good moveset for Aggron could be:
Iron Head ( I think by leveling up)
Surf (By TM)
Thunderbolt (By TM)
Dragon Claw (TM)

I think that most of these moves are good because they're varied, and I think that Surf would be good for Aggron to go against Fire types.
