PokemonGo: Aron has 100% good IV stats, and the shiny Aggron

This week''s Spotlight Hour is about the Iron Armor Pokemon the Pokemon whose completely evolved form is currently in Mega Raids Aron. This is a fantastic opportunity to look for a shiny Aron in Pokemon Go.

Unfortunately, Aron, Lairon, and Aggron (Aron''s evolved forms) are all quite useless in both competitive play and raids in Pokemon Go. However, there''s a good chance that you''re still missing the shiny, and if you still need the 4* perfect Aron, or perfect Aggron to mega evolve, this is your chance to find one.

Even if you''re not keen on Aron, you should still try to catch as many Pokemon as possible during this weeks Spotlight Hour due to the double catch candy bonus that runs alongside the event.

Aron 100% perfect IV stats in Pokemon Go

This week''s Spotlight Hour is a fantastic opportunity to see a Aron with the correct IV stats.

Perfect means two things in Pokemon Go, depending on how you plan to use a given Pokemon. First, there''s the maxed out, 100% IV version, which you''ll use for your 4* Pokedex, raids, and Master League. Yet, because of how CP is calcuated with three stats, a perfect IV Pokemon is usually only ever the best version of itself in the Master League.

Without taking the first sight of the IV of a Pokemon, you may quickly spot a perfect Aron based on the CP alone.

If youre at Level 30 (or above), you''ll best be looking for the following CPs for a perfect Aron 15/15/15:

If your Trainer Level is above Level 30, the wild CP value will be compatible with your Trainer Level. Weve maintained these values for ease as the majority of the player base now exceeds this level. These values will, however, be different if youre is below Level 30.

Is Aggron good in PVP?

Aron, Lairon, and Aggron are all pretty bad in the Go Battle League.

Given that Aron has never had a Community Day, something that may well change in the future, therefore, make sure you keep an eye on it when making it available for yourself to make a memorable experience.

There is a lot of discussion about which Fast move to run with Aggron, with some of them favoring Dragon Tail and faster charging over the heavier hitting Smack Down. Either way, you''re looking to run Stone Edge and Heavy Slam as your Charged moves.

Both Fast moves are totally fine, charging the fairy swiftly and dealing reasonable damage. With your Fast move alone, you can exert a lot of pressure, which is great becasue Heavy Slam, while Stone Edge is a reasonable nuke at 55 energy.

Aggron is a double-weak to fight and ground types, while others are less effective to water-type attacks. Even a small glance at the Great League and Ultra League will reveal Galarian Stunfisk and Swampert, with a large range of great fighting-types and Counter users to boot.

This is because I like the Master League and these fundamental weaknesses again, albeit in a wider range. While Aggron is a fairly defensive Pokemon, it is also competing with Genesect, Dialga, Metagross, Regirock, and Terrakion for a spot on your team. I''m not interested in those odds.

Despite your conviction on this steel-type cutting, you''re looking for the following statistics: 0/14/12 for Great League 0/13/15 for Ultra League 15/15/15 for Master League

  • 0/14/12 for Great League
  • 0/13/15 for Ultra League
  • 15/15/15 for Master League

Is there a shiny Aron in Pokemon Go?

In January 2018, Shiny Aron in Pokemon Go was also released alongside its regular version.

If luck is on your side, you may find a shiny Aron in the wild, but be aware that this is not a Community Day, and shiny rates are not increased, so the chances of getting one, let alone the perfect one, are very low. That said, every Aron you see has the potential to be shiny, so its purely a numbers game and see what you get. Good luck finding the Aron you need!

You''ll need 25 Aron candy to transform your Aron into an Aggron.

What does shiny Aron look like?

Aron, which is brilliant, is a bit of an experiment, with the iron underbelly changing its colour to reflect more oxidised copper levels while keeping the red eyes visible. Aggron has just reprinted Lairon.

Mega Aggron, meanswhile, changes the colour of the silver (steel?) bits to a light brown colour, which works a lot better with the green, almost giving a duet of copper and oxidised copper. Not at all. Does it look cool?

Other tips for this Spotlight Hour

A few other good reasons to partake in this week''s Spotlight Hour:

  • The best reason is, of course, the double catch candy bonus running throughout the hour. This gives you the chance to gather candy twice as fast as usual, with each Aron caught giving up to 13 candy if you use a Pinap/Silver Berry with a mega-evolved Pokemon of the same type, instead of the base 3.
  • If you''''re a newcomer, this Spotlight Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Aron candy to fully evolve this Pokemon and enter all of its evolutions in the Pokedex.
  • If you''''ve picked up a strong Aron that you want to use as your Mega Aggron, this is the perfect chance to get enough candy to power it up to Level 50.
  • Thanks to Aron being a steel and rock-type, catching a bunch during this Spotlight Hour will add progress to your steel and rock-type catch bonus medals.

Spotlight Hour events last for an hour - from 6pm to 7pm (local time). Next week will be Minccino''s time in the spotlight, giving you the opportunity to get double transfer candy, so start sorting through your storage and labeling everything you want to transfer on the September 27th!
