Aggron: Best Moveset, PVP and Item Guide

In the Pokémon GO videogame, the best moves for your Aggron are Iron Tail and Heavy Slam if you’re battling Pokémon in Gyms. Namely, this moveset gives you the highest total DPS and is, likewise, the best moveset for PVP battles. The official description for Iron Tail reveals the following: “The target is slammed with a steel-hard tail. This may also lower the target’s defensive stats”; as for Earthquake, the attack is described as follows: “The user slams into the target with its heavy body. The more the user outweighs the target, the greater the move’s power.”

Other moves that Aggron can learn across other games are:

  • Bold indicates a move that gets STAB when used by Aggron
  • Italic indicates a move that gets STAB only when used by an evolution of Aggron
  • × indicates a move that cannot be used in Generation VIII
