PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Bite and Dragon Breath have identical stats and both benefit from STAB. The choice between the two depends on which role Hydreigon is used for. 
  • Dark Pulse is the strongest charge move overall, and enables Hydreigon to act as a Dark-type attacker.
  • Dragon Pulse is trails narrowly behind in performance, though its slower damage window risks Hydreigon fainting before its damage can be applied. 
  • Flash Cannon is an inferior move. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Breath is slightly more favorable than Bite on defense due to fewer resistances.
  • Dark Pulse has the earliest damage window, which makes it the most difficult to dodge.
  • Dragon Pulse hits slightly harder on defense, but is much easier to dodge. 
  • Flash Cannon as a 1-bar move is less likely to be used before Hydreigon faints. 

PVE Overview

Hydreigon is the pseudo-Legendary Pokemon for Gen 5, and it is already facing more competition than any of its contemporaries did at their introductions. Given all movesets that are currently available, it falls short as both a Dragon attacker in particular, but does stand as a decent choice for a Dark type, sporting DPS slightly higher than Tyranitar. That said; it's not exactly a huge gain, and its TDO takes a slight hit as a result. In the future, Hydreigon will need a very powerful moveset to its name to overcome its somewhat lower stats, and its only real hope is on the Dark side, as it has 2 other Dragon pseudo-legendaries to contend with on the Dragon side, not to mention absurdly powerful Legendaries such as Rayquaza for DPS and Dialga for TDO. Even then, it's virtually guaranteed to fall behind Darkrai when it's released as a Dark Type. Hydreigon is a bit under-performer similar to Metagross at its introduction, but may see more utility in its inevitable Community Day.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Breath + Dark Pulse and Dragon Pulse

Dragon Breath and Bite both hit hard with STAB, though the former has significantly better energy gains which makes it the superior choice. 

Dark Pulse is the primary charge move for Hydreigon, costs the least amount of energy, and provides STAB Dark-type coverage. Dragon Pulse isn't as necessary mainly due to requiring more energy, though it can threaten OHKOs against opposing Dragon-types. Flash Cannon is unappealing to use for its high energy cost. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Hyrdeigon's predicted performance has some potential. It has the potential to learn a lot of really good moves such as Dragon Breath, Body Slam, Outrage, Crunch, and even oddities like Surf or Earth Power. It has the stats to perform well in the Master or Ultra League, a very nice list of strengths that include many common types, and the rarity of Fairy type moves makes its main weakness worry a bit less scary. However, it also has a number of other weaknesses to common types, and a lot of under-performing moves that it could very well be strapped with. Hydreigon could very well hit the meta like a meteor, or end up splashing like a Magikarp.
