Goodra as a counter.




Goodra @ Assault Vest
Ability: Sap Sipper
EVs: 240 HP / 252 SpA / 16 Spe
Modest Nature
- Draco Meteor
- Fire Blast
- Thunderbolt
- Sludge Bomb

Goodra takes very little from any of Blastoise's attacks and can 2HKO back with Thunderbolt.

252+ SpA Mega Blastoise Ice Beam vs. 240 HP / 0 SpD Assault Vest Goodra: 104-124 (27.2 - 32.5%) -- guaranteed 4HKO
252+ SpA Goodra Thunderbolt vs. 28 HP / 0 SpD Mega Blastoise: 170-202 (55.5 - 66%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
 
Name: Roserade
Status:Check



Roserade @ Life Orb
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Spikes / Toxic Spikes
- Sludge Bomb
- Leaf Storm
- Hidden Power Fire

Roserade outspeeds Mega Blastoise and can OHKO it with Leaf Storm. Roserade also resists Water and Fighting so try to come in on those moves as Ice Beam has a chance to OHKO Roserade while Dark Pulse is a guaranteed 2HKO. Roserade can threaten a fair amount of Pokemon with its coverage and can also set-up Spikes or Toxic Spikes. If needed, it can also run Rest or Synthesis for Recovery and Sleep Powder for the annoyance factor.

252+ SpA Mega Launcher Mega Blastoise Dark Pulse vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Roserade: 141-167 (54.4 - 64.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ SpA Mega Blastoise Hydro Pump vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Roserade: 97-114 (37.4 - 44%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

Suicune is a Counter


Suicune @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
- Calm Mind
- Scald
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

Thanks to insanely high Physical bulk and an excellent defensive typing, CroCune is a beautiful counter to Mega Aerodactyl. Suicune can switch into every move that Mega Aerodactyl may have, & easily 2HKO with Scald. It can always Rest off any lost health afterwards.

252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aerial Ace vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Suicune: 88-105 (21.7 - 25.9%) -- possible 5HKO after Leftovers recovery

252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Suicune: 109-130 (26.9 - 32.1%) -- 51.8% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery

4 SpA Suicune Scald vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mega Aerodactyl: 168-198 (55.8 - 65.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Slowbro @ Leftovers
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 232 Def / 24 SpD
Bold Nature
- Scald
- Slack Off
- Thunder Wave
- Psyshock / Fire Blast / Ice Beam / Calm Mind

Slowbro walls a lot of physical sweepers, and Mega Aerodactyl is not an exception. With his high Defense, it can take easily Mega-Aerodactyl s'Stabs and can do a lot of damage with Scald. In fact, Stone Edge (the most powerful attack of the set against Slowbro) is only a 4HKO factoring Leftovers recovery.

0 SpA Slowbro Scald vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mega Aerodactyl: 182-216 (60.4 - 71.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 232+ Def Slowbro: 115-136 (29.1 - 34.5%) -- 99.9% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aerial Ace vs. 252 HP / 232+ Def Slowbro: 93-109 (23.6 - 27.6%) -- possible 5HKO after Leftovers recovery


EDIT: Dr Ciel, Fire Fang and Aqua Tail are considered as relevent calculations ? oO

Metagross @ Metagrossite
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Meteor Mash
- Zen Headbutt
- Bullet Punch
- Hammer Arm

Even if Mega Aerodactyl has Fire Fang, Mega Metagross can still come in on anything other than Fire Fang and tank them both even if Mega Metagross hasn't Mega Evolved:

252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Metagross: 67-79 (22.2 - 26.2%) -- 88.7% chance to 4HKO after Stealth Rock
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Fire Fang vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Mega Metagross: 136-162 (45.1 - 53.8%) -- 90.2% chance to 2HKO after Stealth Rock

Max Damage: 26.2% + 53.8% + 6.2% = 86.2%

252 Atk Metagross Meteor Mash vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Mega Aerodactyl: 344-408 (114.2 - 135.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

If Mega Aerodactyl is carrying Taunt instead, Mega Metagross upgrades to a full counter since Stone Edge becomes the hardest hitting move against Metagross.

Mega Manectric: Check


Until May (Manectric) @ Manectite
Ability: Lightningrod
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Volt Switch
- Overheat
- Hidden Power Ice

Even though Mega Aerodactyl outspeeds Mega Manectric, it can't OHKO it, thanks to the Attack drop from Intimidate, while it gets OHKOed back by Thunderbolt, making Mega Manectric a solid check. Mega Manectric does have to get a safe switch-in and has to be already Mega Evolved, however, as even with Intimidate Stone Edge has a large change to 2HKO without Stealth Rock damage, while its guaranteed with them, and Mega Manectric has no form of reliable recovery. Although, it can also switch into Aerial Ace or Taunt.

-1 252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Mega Manectric: 135-159 (48 - 56.5%) -- 85.9% chance to 2HKO

-1 252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aerial Ace vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Mega Manectric: 54-63 (19.2 - 22.4%) -- possible 5HKO

-1 252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aqua Tail vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Mega Manectric: 107-127 (38 - 45.1%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

252 SpA Mega Manectric Thunderbolt vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mega Aerodactyl: 318-374 (105.6 - 124.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Landorus-Therian (Check)

Landorus-Therian @ Leftovers
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 HP / 240 Def / 16 Spe
Impish Nature
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Stealth Rock
- U-turn

Landorus-Therian is a nice check to Aerodactyl-Mega thanks to Intimidate and its nice bulk. Landorus-Therian finds it very easy to switch in against a predicted Aerial Ace/Stone Edge/Fire Fang. If Aerodactyl-Mega uses Aqua Tail while Landorus-Therian switches-in, then there can be trouble for Landorus-Therian. Though, Landorus-Therian can 2HKO Aerodactyl-Mega with Stone Edge, making Landorus-Therian a decent check to Aerodactyl-Mega.

Calculations:

-1 252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 240+ Def Landorus-T: 88-105 (23 - 27.4%) -- possible 5HKO after Leftovers recovery

-1 252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aqua Tail vs. 252 HP / 240+ Def Landorus-T: 140-166 (36.6 - 43.4%) -- 99.4% chance to 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

0 Atk Landorus-T Stone Edge vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Mega Aerodactyl: 226-268 (75 - 89%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

(Check)

You may wonder what checks a giant, ancient flying rock lizard thing. A few examples above are quite fearsome indeed, we have: 2 dog things, a giant computer with 4 arms, and another dog thing, on clouds.

But, as fearsome as they look, nothing can compare to the sheer terror of.....



some keys. Yes. JINGLE. DEM. KEYS.

Klefki@ Sitrus Berry/ Leftovers
Prankster
Impish (-SpAtk, +Def)
252HP/252Def/4SpD
-Spikes
-Thunder Wave
-Toxic
-Play Rough. Ful Play

Mega Aero is almost always going to switch as soon as Klefki comes in, for it fears being hit by a Thunder Wave, which will essentially cripple it. Klefki can use this to its advantage and lay down some spikes, which can rack up residual damage throughout the match.
Toxic can form a nice double status moveset, that can catch pokemon like Hippowdon and put them on a timer, since Hippowdon likes switching into Klefki, since it can do very little to it.
Play Rough is there for damage, but you can opt for Foul Play if you'd like. I chose Play Rough, alongside a physically defensive spread, to serve as an aswer to mons like: Weavile and Mega Lopunny.

- Close Combat

Lucario can take a fire fang if needed with occa berry and KO back with cc+Bullet Punch or iron tail. This isn't a common set, but if I have lucario on a Fire Type weak team

252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Fire Fang vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Occa Berry Lucario: 129-152 (45.9 - 54%) -- 47.7% chance to 2HKO

Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
Ability: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 88 Def / 168 SpD
Relaxed Nature
IVs: 0 Spe
- Stealth Rock
- Leech Seed
- Gyro Ball / Power Whip
- Power Whip / Thunder Wave / Protect

Ferrothorn can switch in on all of Aerodactyl's moves (with the exception of Fire Fang) and OHKO with Gyro Ball.

However, due to Ferrothorn's extremely low speed, if it switches into Aerial Ace and Aerodactyl is running Fire Fang, it most likely won't survive unless the damage rolls are in Ferrothorn's favor.

Offensive:
0 Atk Ferrothorn Gyro Ball (150 BP) vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Mega Aerodactyl: 350-414 (116.2 - 137.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
0 Atk Ferrothorn Power Whip vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Mega Aerodactyl: 141-166 (46.8 - 55.1%) -- 69.5% chance to 2HKO

Defensive:
252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 88+ Def Ferrothorn: 57-67 (16.1 - 19%) -- possible 8HKO after Leftovers recovery
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aqua Tail vs. 252 HP / 88+ Def Ferrothorn: 45-53 (12.7 - 15%) -- possibly the worst move ever
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Fire Fang vs. 252 HP / 88+ Def Ferrothorn: 260-308 (73.8 - 87.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aerial Ace vs. 252 HP / 88+ Def Ferrothorn: 91-108 (25.8 - 30.6%) -- 1.6% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery

(hard check if no taunt)

Skarmory @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Impish Nature

- Brave Bird
- Taunt
- Roost
- Defog

It can switch in on pretty much anything and eventually beat it by spamming brave bird and roost.

Also isn't Hone Claws an option? b/c that set would allow it to get past mons such as Manectric and Suicune after a bit of prior damage
 
Counter
Empoleon @ Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
- Scald
- Roar
- Toxic / Defog / Stealth Rock
- Protect / Defog

With its unique typing, Empoleon comes about to resist both STAB of Aerodactyl, while taking a pittance from Fire Fang and Aqua Tail as well, only getting 4HKOed at worst (6HKO with Protect every other turn). Since this Aerodactyl lacks Thunder Fang or Earthquake, Empoleon can always switch in and beat Aerodactyl. In return, Scald is a solid 2HKO, sometimes even OHKO if it gets a burn when SR are up.
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Fire Fang vs. 248 HP / 8 Def Empoleon: 107-126 (28.8 - 33.9%) -- 98.6% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery
252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 248 HP / 8 Def Empoleon: 93-109 (25 - 29.3%) -- guaranteed 5HKO after Leftovers recovery

EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Iron Head
- Fire Punch / Ice Punch / Zen Headbutt
- U-turn / Ice Punch / Zen Headbutt
- Healing Wish

Jirachi resists Mega Aero's dual STABs and can avoid the 2HKO from Aqua Tail (only fearing Fire Fang which 2HKOes). In return, Jirachi outspeeds and OHKOes back with Iron Head. Other moves are for coverage.

252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Fire Fang vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Jirachi: 192-228 (56.3 - 66.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aqua Tail vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Jirachi: 135-159 (39.5 - 46.6%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock
252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Jirachi: 84-99 (24.6 - 29%) -- guaranteed 4HKO after Stealth Rock

Garchomp as a counter

Garchomp @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Rough Skin
EVs: 252 HP / 164 Def / 76 SpD / 16 Spe
Impish Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake
- Draco Meteor
- Toxic

Without Ice Fang, M-Aerodactyl can virtually do nothing back to Garchomp. It's going to take like 25% from recoil each time it makes contact, Garchomp can also Draco Meteor or Toxic it, which means that it is always going to come out on top in a 1v1 situation.
 
Infaillible Counter


Wobbuffet @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Shadow Tag
EVs: 48 HP / 236 Def / 224 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 SpA
- Counter
- Mirror Coat
- Encore
- Destiny Bond

Besides being a strong counter to Aerodactyl, Wobbuffet also works as an unstoppable check.
Wobbuffet's usage here is ridiculously simple, switching-in on any Aerodactyl's move taking weak damages thanks to its amazing bulk, and then killing with counter.
Stone edge countered OHKOs Aero, Aerial Ace and Aqua Tail have ~37,5% chance to OHKO, Fire Fang is a 2HKO (still when countered).
Furthermore, if the opponent feels like spamming taunt to avoid counter, Wobbuffet can also keep spamming Counter/Mirror coat and so PP wast taunt.
Bonus : Wobbuffet works regardless Aerodactyl's moveset, likewise, Wobbuffet will consistently finish the 1v1 with at least 50% of his life (unless if 2 max rolls on stone edge).

252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 48 HP / 236+ Def Wobbuffet: 171-202 (32 - 37.8%)
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Fire Fang vs. 48 HP / 236+ Def Wobbuffet: 98-116 (18.3 - 21.7%)
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aqua Tail / Aerial Ace vs. 48 HP / 236+ Def Wobbuffet: 137-162 (25.7 - 30.3%)

Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Impish Nature
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Slack Off
- Stone Edge

Hippowdon can hard check Mega Aerodactyl as with a physically defensive spread avoids the 2HKO from Aqua Tail. Stone Edge in turn 2HKOes back meaning Hippowdon wins when given a manual switch-in or switches in against anything other than Aqua Tail.

252 SpA Magnezone Thunderbolt vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mega Aerodactyl: 308-366 (102.3 - 121.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 SpA Magnezone Flash Cannon vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mega Aerodactyl: 272-324 (90.3 - 107.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock (43.8% chance to OHKO without it)
252 SpA Magnezone Volt Switch vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mega Aerodactyl: 240-284 (79.7 - 94.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock


In addition to trapping steels, Magnezone can RK M-Aero by living the Fire Fang and retaliating with a STAB move. Thunderbolt always KOs it, while Flash Cannon and Volt Switch need rocks to guarantee it.

Mega Aggron takes almost no damage from any of Aerodactyl's attacks. The strongest attack from Mega Aero is Fire Fang, which can not even 4hko Aggron with rocks up. In return, Mega Aggron ohko's Mega Aero with Heavy Slam.

252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Fire Fang vs. 252 HP / 16+ Def Filter Mega Aggron: 63-75 (18.3 - 21.8%) -- possible 5HKO

Quagsire doesn't care about anything Mega Aerodactyl does and 2HKO back with Scald. It can even use Recover to heal up if needed.

252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aerial Ace vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Quagsire: 109-129 (27.6 - 32.7%) -- 99.7% chance to 4HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

Rotom-Wash @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 Spe
Bold Nature
- Volt Switch
- Hydro Pump
- Will-O-Wisp
- Pain Split

Even though it's not as good as it used to be, Rotom-W does a decent job at checking Mega Aero as it is not 2HKOed by any move even after Rocks. In returb, it can OHKO back with Hydro Pump. However, Rotom-W is easily worn down. Volt Switch is for momentum while Pain Split for recovery. Will-O-Wisp cripples switch-ins and be annoying.

252 Atk Mega Aerodactyl Stone Edge vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Rotom-W: 117-138 (38.6 - 45.5%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
0 SpA Rotom-W Hydro Pump vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mega Aerodactyl: 258-306 (85.7 - 101.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
 

Chansey @ Eviolite
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SpD

- Toxic

- Stealth Rock / other utility move

Role: Counter

252 SpA Life Orb Starmie Hydro Pump vs. 4 HP / 252 SpD Eviolite Chansey: 99-118 (15.4 - 18.3%) -- possible 6HKO (this is the most Starmie can do bar Psyshock)

Pretty simple, Chansey takes pittance from anything Starmie can throw at it and can beat it with the combination of Seismic Toss and Toxic. Not having Natural Cure on Starmie means Toxic will stick.
