Talk:Aron (Pokémon)

This "Trivia" piece might be a stretch. You know how similar Aron and Sheildon are? Well, have you guys ever noticed that both their names are very close to human names? As in Aron-Aaron and Shieldon-Sheldon?

This only occurred to me because I'd been mispronouncing Aron's name as Aaron until recently, lol. - unsigned comment from Udivision (talkcontribs) 18:54, 22 February 2009

This concludes the entries from the Advanced series.

It is pretty obvious that it's English name could have been based on Iron. Should be added to the trivia. ♢ DeadUniverse Hello! ♢ 16:40, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Sturdy Sandstorm combo?

Over on the TV Tropes wiki, a user proposed that in Generation V, because the "Sturdy" ability now functions similarly to the Focus Sash, there is a potentially deadly combo:

  • Breed an Aron with Sturdy, Endeavor, and equip the Shell Bell on it.
  • Create a Sandstorm in battle, then have Aron use Endeavor.
    • If the opponent strikes first, Aron survives because it's Sturdy and has full HP.
    • Endeavor then reduces the opponent to 1 HP; this counts as damage, causing the shell bell to restore Aron's on HP, potentially back to full.
    • The sandstorm finishes the opponent off at end of turn.
    • Possible to rinse and repeat for the remainder of battle.

Can anyone verify this? The obvious counter-tactics appear to be:

  • Pokemon immune to Sandstorm
  • Swipe moves
  • Nullifying either Aron's ability (Mold Breaker, Skill Swap, etc.) or item (Knock Off, Embargo, etc.) prior to attack

Well, I have already an Aron like this waiting in a box, and everything you mentioned is true. An another Sturdy combo is level 2 Probopass with Leftovers and knowing Pain Split, Protect and Magic Coat.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 19:43, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Gen VI Breeding Changes

  • For when the template is updated to support Generation VI, Aron can get Stealth Rock from Tyrunt and Tyrantrum normally. No migration required. Sarysa (talk) 13:20, 8 November 2013 (UTC)


The basis for Aron is said to be a Korean mythical creature known as the Pulgasari, but it seems that the link links to a North Korean propaganda film. Either the basis is wrong, or there needs to be a better link. Thank you. TraxScrip813 (talk) 18:11, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Fixed. --Raltseye prata med mej 00:41, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
