Lairon is the 3rd Generation Iron Armor Pokémon that evolves from Aron and into Aggron. Lairon is a stocky, armored, Pokémon with four short legs. Its back is covered with segments of iron armor, each with a high ridge and round dark holes on the sides.

Lairon smashes its steely body against others in battle over territory, and shows off its strength with the size of sparks it creates by ramming into rocks. It drinks nutritious mineral spring water and feeds on iron contained in rocks. It builds its nest on mountains where iron ore is buried, which results in it clashing with humans that are iron mining.
