Originally encountered in the Hoenn region of Gen III, Aggron is a Steel and Rock type Pokémon capable of Mega Evolving. When it Mega Evolves, it changes to a pure Steel type and gets a huge stat boost. In Pokémon Go, Mega Aggron deals more damage than any other Steel type Mega currently available. Eventually, it will be blown out of the water by Mega Metagross, but for now, its bulk will serve well providing a Steel type Mega Boost in raids.

Mega Evolution strategies for Mega Aggron in Pokémon Go?

There are a handful of options for Mega Evolution when countering Mega Aggron, focusing on two of its weaknesses: Fire and Fighting. 

Mega Charizard Y

The best performing Mega in this raid is Mega Charizard Y and if you’re planning on running a Fire type team, it’s the best option. It’s a Fire and Flying type, so it resists Steel type damage, but Rock and Electric moves hit for super effective damage. If you’re bringing Mega Charizard to this fight, Fire Spin and Blast Burn are the moves you’ll want.

Although Y performs better, Mega Charizard X also fares well against Mega Aggron. As a Dragon and Fire type, it resists Steel and Electric type damage, but Rock and Dragon type moves hit extra hard. Fire Spin and Blast Burn is also the ideal moveset for this Charizard.

Mega Houndoom

Mega Houndoom can also serve as Mega for a Fire based team. It’s a Dark and Fire type, giving it resistance to Steel type moves, but a weakness against Rock type damage. Fire Fang and Flamethrower is its best moveset going up against Mega Aggron.

Mega Lopunny

Although it won’t last nearly as long on the field as Fire type Megas, Mega Lopunny
is the only Fighting type Mega currently available in Pokémon Go. As a Fighting and Normal type, it resists Rock type damage and has no weaknesses Mega Aggron can exploit. Double Kick and Focus Blast are the moves your Lopunny should know.
