Just look at that massive amount of metal - the body itself is a shield. Every bit of this aggressive pokemon spells 'I'M DA BOSS', and you'll never regret ever having this guy on your team.
Aggron is a tank - and a powerful one at that. Along with the super defense, it's got a good attack stat and okay HP. However, it suffers from low speed and low special defense. Though, the latter isn't much of a problem because not many special attacks can affect this guy that easily. Due to it being Steel/Rock, a lot of special elements aren't effective on Aggron. Even if it has 4X weakness to Ground and Fighting (which are mostly physical), its super defense allows Aggron to withstand most super effective hits and AT LEAST avoid being OHKO'd, providing chances to recover. 2X-damaging Water attacks don't really scratch Aggron. Maybe a STAB'd Hydro Pump might put Aggron in the red zone in one hit.
Aron is terribly weak. In Gen3, you can get Aron relatively early in Granite Cave near the second gym (Dewford). However, due to the gym being Fighting-typed, Aron can't be used for important battles right away. Also, a lot of trainers on the way have Water-types in their teams, and Aron can be killed even with Water Gun or Bubble. However, it takes time to raise Aron to a monstrous Aggron - and as I always say - it pays off big time.
For me, Aggron was an excellent battle staller whenever I needed to heal another team member. If possible, I would just let Aggron use Iron Head or Iron Tail and pick on the opponent if I felt like it.
But admittedly, I hadn't used Aggron on my team a lot because the low speed had gotten on my nerves. Of course, I could've always paired Aggron with Lopunny as an Agility/Baton Pass combo - but honestly, there was no point Speed-Boosting an Aggron when I could use Rampardos as a sweeper.
