Mega Aggron Weakness & Type Effectiveness

Since Mega Aggron is a pure Steel-type Pokemon, players will have a pretty easy time narrowing down the potential pool of Pokemon to use in battle. These should include Pokemon who resist Dragon, Rock, Steel, or Electric-type moves and who have strong Fighting, Fire, or Ground-type moves.

We recommend bringing Ground or Fighting-type Pokemon, as Ground resists Electric and Rock-type moves, and Fighting resists Rock-type moves. Fire, while great for attacking, is vulnerable to Rock-type moves, which Aggron favors.

If you stick to the Pokemon listed above and they have a CP higher than 3,500, we think you can skim by with two to three trainers. Of course, the trainers you bring into battle will also need a kitted team of proper Mega Aggron counters.
