PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Heavy Slam shares typing with Iron Tail to fulfill a niche Steel-type role.
  • Stone Edge pairs well with Smack Down if Aggron is ever needed for Rock-type coverage. 
  • Rock Tomb is a downgrade. 
  • Dragon Tail doesn't get STAB, and consequently performs worse. 
  • Don’t use Thunder on offensive Aggron.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Iron Tail usually beats Dragon Tail on defense due to STAB, but they are close.
  • Smack Down gets STAB and offers more coverage, but is resisted by Machamp. 
  • Rock Tomb is quite slow and lacks damage, making it poor for defense despite being a 2-bar move. 
  • Heavy Slam is a 2-bar Charge Move and can be tricky to dodge.
  • Stone Edge is very hard to react to, but a demotivated Aggron will struggle to use it against its counters.
  • Thunder is like Stone Edge except with no STAB and a different effectiveness profile.

PVE Overview

Shadow Aggron is... fine. Given the right matchup, it can be hilariously bulky, and the Shadow Boost makes it able to actually hold its own DPS-wise, but it's still a lesser pick for the majority of raids. Raising one isn't a bad thing, but it's also not an amazing investment, either.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Smack Down or Dragon Tail + Stone Edge and Thunder

Smack Down is preferred for its high damage output backed by STAB, in addition to good coverage against common typings. Dragon Tail generally performs worse partly due to lack of STAB, though there may be niche cases where you'd want the Dragon-type damage and extra energy generation.

Stone Edge is powerful and takes advantage of STAB, while Thunder provides alternative coverage. Both cost a lot of energy to use, unfortunately. Heavy Slam could be chosen for its cheaper STAB Steel-type coverage, but this is a less valuable typing. The addition of Rock Tomb following the GBL Season 10 update is unimpressive, as its poor damage output and high energy cost discourages its use despite its new debuff utility. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Aggron...isn't great. With plenty of other strong anti-flying options (Bastiodon and Galarian Stunfisk being the two most prevalent ones), it's just not worth bringing Aggron out most of the time.

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Aggron's still not great in Ultra League, though it's arguably a little better? Your options for strong anti-flyings are a little more limited here, which lets Aggron shine very slightly more.

Master League: 0 / 5

It's Aggron, what more needs to be said? With Dialga, Kyogre, Groudon, and Melmetal running around constantly, and limited need to Smack Down anything, Aggron's utility is incredibly limited. You could use Aggron, but should you? (No. You probably shouldn't.)
