Aggron is a Tier 3 raid boss in Pokémon Go. Being a Rock and Steel type, it is weak to the Fighting, Ground and Water types, with the Fighting and Ground weaknesses being 2x.
While you SHOULDN’T use Aggron in raids even though the recommended counters tell you to, Aggron is an interesting spicy pick for the lower PvP leagues.
Aggron can be caught with the following CP values:
- 1636 – 1714 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
- 2045 – 2143 CP at Level 25 with Partly Cloudy or Snow weather boost
Generally, 1 trainer can beat with Ground and Fighting types in their weather boosts. To be on the safe side, 2-3 trainers will suffice.
