Aggron raid counters
Aggron raid counters heavily rely on Fighting and Ground moves in order to ensure a swift victory. Water based counters are an option, but there are several better choices readily available, namely Groudon and Machamp.
|Weakness 2x Fighting
|Boosted by Snow
As far as the quickest attackers to take down Aggron go, in nearly any weather it comes down to teams of Fighting types mixed with a few Groudon. As the 2x weakness comes into play, Machamp, Breloom, Hariyama, and Blaziken can lead teams to a short victory, although all of which can be somewhat glassy, especially Blaziken if Aggron happens to have Stone Edge.
Beyond fighting, Ground types can come in to fill blanks in teams, with Groudon leading the charge, followed by a distant Donphan and Rhydon.
Water-Type counters such as Kyogre should not be used against Thunder. We do recommend that Water-Types are to be put on the end of teams, as, excluding Kyogre, they do not do as much damage as the 2x Dealing Fighting and Ground-Types.
Good weather counters vs Aggron
Taking the weather into account, you can see an improvement to any team in either Sunny, Rainy, or Cloudy weather.
- Sunny weather will boost Ground moves, pushing Groudon on top of the counter list and making the fight significantly easier
- Cloudy weather will boost Fighting type moves making Machamp, Hariyama and Breloom, Blaziken and Poliwrath even better
- Rainy weather will boost Water moves, helping Kyogre bridge the damage gap and perform as good as any other Fighting
At this moment, it seems that all Aggron’s moves are easily handled by its counters. We recommend taking the potential damage output into consideration, as Aggron’s attacks really hurt.
- Iron Tail Steel
- Dragon Tail Dragon
- Stone Edge Rock
- Heavy Slam Steel
- Thunder Electric
Aggron will be one of the two best Steel counters in the game against Gardevoir’s fairy typing. The other good steel type is Metagross. Aggron’s steel type moveset is Iron Tail and Heavy Slam.
Aggron is going to be an awesome counter to Rayquaza; it’s going to take reduced damage from all of Rayquaza’s possible moves and Aggron’s fast move Dragon Tail and charge move Stone Edge will both be Super-Effective against Rayquaza.
Being steel and rock type, Aggron resists Normal, Ice, Poison, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Dragon and Fairy type attacks. Weaker defender due to fighting and ground weaknesses. Machamp and other fighting types leading the gym attacking meta-game and Groudon now available as the best ground type.
