The Iron Armor Pokemon:
Ummmmmmm…… one of the flaws that almost made me put a different Pokemon on my team, was the terrible typing Aggron received: Rock and steel, which might be the worse one yet. This means a lot of things, lots of resistances, but the weaknesses are fatal and deadly. Water type is common nowadays, and that is a weakness. Fighting types and ground types are the types to watch out for, especially since the two 4x damages are common on team sweepers and tanks. But Aggron has an amazing defense stat, and also an above average attack stat. Its other stats are low, and below average. But, what makes Aggron so dangerous is a new ability: Rock Head. This allows Aggron to use recoil moves without recoil. It’ll explain it later.
Ability: Rock Head: Receives no recoil from recoil moves.
-Magnet Rise/Thunder Wave
Ev: 120 HP, 252 attack, 132 speed, 6 special defense
My favorite set of Aggron, because of a beastly attack: Head Smash. Now you’re thinking, “WOW. This guy’s insane, he’s choosing an Aggron with Head Smash?!?!?!? Amazing recoil!!!” BUT, Aggron receives a sick ability called Rock Head, which allows recoil moves to be free of their recoil, which now means you have a base power 225 attack (after STAB) with NO recoil. Yea. That’s what I thought. Amazing. Now, don’t think this is the only good thing in your set. With a reliable speed investment, now Aggron could outspeed the Skarmory going for Roost! This is extremely nice. With that many HP ev’s, Aggron could now abuse Substitute, which is another key in this set. Substituting and Focus Punching may be one of the most common combos, but it is powerful. After a secure sub, you could then go for a Magnet Rise, which now makes you Levitate, so now you lose one of your worst nightmares, ground moves. Or instead, you could set up a substitute by using Thunder Wave, and hoping for the Para-Hax, but I’d prefer forgetting about one of your greatest KO shots. Absolutely crazy, you just turned one of the worst Pokemon in UU into a Pokemon deserving of a spot in OU. :D
