Aron (Japanese: ココドラ Cokodora) is a dual-type Steel/Rock Pokémon.

It evolves into Lairon starting at level 32, who evolves into Aggron starting at level 42.

Biology

Physiology

Aron has a round body, four stubby legs, and a large, round head. Its body is dark gray and its eyes are a pale blue. Portions of steel armor cover its head, legs, and back, which has a single spike on it. Throughout Aron's body are small openings in the armor, three on its head, one, the largest, being the opening for its eye, and one on its back below its spike. A new suit of armor is made when it evolves. The old, discarded armor is salvaged as metal for making iron products.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

With one all-out charge, this Pokémon can demolish even a heavy dump truck.

Behavior

To make its body, Aron feeds on iron ore that it digs from mountains. Occasionally, hunger may drive it to descend from the mountains to eat bridges and rails, which may produce some same major trouble and cause it to be viewed as a pest.

Habitat

It usually lives deep within mountains.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Aron eats metal, which sometimes leads it to eating bridges, rails, and other important items.

In the anime
