      I prefer Aggron, but I don't know much about either of them, so I don't really know.

          By default and obviously, Steelix. Is it really necessary to have a x4 weakness to brick break and earthquake, which is absolutely everywhere? Poor Aggron...

                another word, Spike means:

                "At least do some basic research that Steel/Rock doesn't resist electric attacks, and is certainly stumped by any incoming earthquake. Get the types sorted out first."

                  Steelix is obviously the better monster. No need to quibble over it.

                      In simplier terms, I'll sum that up to "I'm arrogant."

                      Basic type matchup is elementary, even for ingame battles... someone who messes up this simple type combination question and being the best at the same time? Pure irony and extreme sarcasm, with a slight scent of oxymoron in the air...

                      Anyone who played competitively (NB or offline) can tell how the x4 ground/fighting hurts way too much for Aggron to be used that much at all...

                          You should give him the benefit of the doubt, frostweaver. Maybe Texans just can't play Pokmon... And someone five years your former will outsmart you. Ironic. Perhaps, satirical.

                              The problem is not the fact that he messed up his type, but his response to how someone corrected him (regardless of how).

                              And shouldn't be so hot tempered. Be it in life or a Pokemon battle, being so easily ticked off will result in a terrible consequences. Just because that Sceptile is ticking you off beyond no end with the annoying sub-seed strategy, don't be acting on your anger and just switch to random objects...

                                Steelix, hands down. Steel/Ground is a better dual-type than Rock/Steel, and Steelix's movesets complement his stats better than they do Aggrons. That and Steelix looks 10x better than Aggron!

                                  If hes one of the best in Tx, which is prob a lie, then I feel sorry for your state... I'm not a Aggron hater or anything, I use it on 3 of my NB teams. One is CBed and the others are Sub Punchers.

                                    You have to keep beating it consecutively to get better items.

                                      I'd say Steelix, I don't usually use Pokmon with a 4x weakness, apart from my Breloom in Emerald

                                            Khold, PC doesn't like the mention of Roosters, apparently some people misinterpret roosters to mean something else

                                            Anyways, Aggron is usable, but mostly on a UUer team, where you'd prolly go with Khold's set. I'd personally use Steelix if it was a serious team though, cuz I have no prediction skillz.

                                              STFU YOU IDIOT! DON'T USE THOSE KIND OF WORDS, THERE ARE KIDS ON THIS FORUM!

                                              Aggron with T-wave and sub makes no sense... By then you have taken alot of damage and have no HP to sub. And Rockslide has a 30% chance of flinch, so depending on it would be really stupid.

                                                  Actually, Aggron barely gets scratched if it's hit by physical attacks that's not ground/fighting. It's too rare to be true, but if it is true, then you have tons of time to pull off twave then sub then punch.

                                                    I guess I see the irony in having STFU and WE HAVE KIDS IN THIS FORUM in the same sentence as well, Alex ._.

                                                    On topic, Aggron has god like D. Too bad about the type though.
