PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Tail should be paired with Dragon Claw. This set has better neutral coverage and damage than the Ground-type set.
  • Mud Shot should be paired with Earthquake. This set has an advantage against types weak to Ground, but is overall weaker.
  • Stone Edge may have a few niche uses, but is generally the worst option.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Tail is Flygon's only viable fast move on defense, with triple Mud Shot’s power.
  • Dragon Claw is Flygon’s best charge move option, having 3 charge bars and an early damage window.
  • Stone Edge has counter coverage, but Flygon’s bulk isn’t well suited for 1-bar moves.
  • Earthquake is underwhelming in every aspect despite having STAB.

PVE Overview

Flygon’s unique typing suggests that it’d be an excellent counter to Electric-type Pokemon: it deals super effective damage while triply resisting Electric-type attacks. But Flygon suffers the same problem in GO that it has in the regular Pokemon games: it lacks the elite stats to really shine. Groudon and Dragonite do just about everything that Flygon can, but better. Overall, as an adjunct Ground or Dragon-type attacker, Flygon isn’t useless, it just isn’t very useful.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Mud Shot + Earthquake and Dragon Claw

Mud Shot is the preferred fast move, well known for having some the fastest energy gains in the game, at a whopping 4.50 EPT (Energy Per Turn)! 

Even though Earthquake requires a lot of energy, it is almost always desired on Flygon, benefiting from STAB and can be paired with Mud Shot to make Flygon a Ground-type threat. With 1.8 DPE (Damage Per Energy) and 120 base power, Earthquake has the potential to deal huge damage to the opponent if it's unshielded (or if the opponent doesn't fly). Being Super Effective against five different typings is also a very welcoming perk. 

Dragon Claw sees a lot of use on Flygon, which is often used to apply heavy shield pressure and bait shields. Though its base power of 50 and 1.4 DPE (Damage Per Energy) isn't anything spectacular, the frequency of which it can be used is noticeable and the damage does add up over the course of a fight. Dragon-type opponents also dislike being abused by constant Dragon Claw spam. 

Mud Shot + Earthquake and Stone Edge

Stone Edge adds coverage to Flygon and helps deal with its double weakness to Ice-type Pokemon. Though this moveset is slower than the one above, the amount of power and coverage provided allows Flygon to threaten a large number of Pokemon with two powerful moves that each have a high 1.8 DPE (Damage Per Energy). Because of the loss of Dragon Claw spam in this moveset, in addition to Flygon's lack of bulk, it might be better to use Flygon in the end game when shields are more likely to be down. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3.5 / 5

Flygon competes with other Ground-type and Dragon-type Pokemon in Great League, but due to its offensive stat distribution, falls significantly behind in bulk with a 1500 CP cap. Flygon makes up for this by being one of the fastest spammers in the game, applying heavy shield pressure thanks to the massive energy generation from Mud Shot and low energy cost Dragon Claws. Relatively quick access to the powerful Earthquake and Stone Edge moves enables Flygon to threaten numerous Pokemon with a potential KO if unshielded. Thanks to its moveset, Flygon is one of the best Pokemon at baiting or forcing shields, and almost always leaves a bruise on its opponent before going down. Just keep this guy away from Ice-types. 

Ultra League: 4 / 5

Flygon moves up in the ranks in Ultra League thanks to a higher CP cap. Just like in Great League, Flygon's main role is applying heavy shield pressure with Dragon Claw spam, and threatening fast Earthquakes or Stone Edges. Flygon still has a big issue with Ice-types in this league, and also loses to the big names like Giratina, Lugia, Dialga, and Cresselia, but not without putting up a fight. 

Master League: 3 / 5

Master League paves the way for a lot of legendary Pokemon due to their high stats, which leaves Flygon somewhat behind with a maximum CP of only 2661. While Flygon can't really compete against the top picks in Master League, it still manages to get more wins than losses against the numerous Pokemon that aren't legendaries or pseudo-legendaries. As a side note, Flygon also gets wins over Raikou thanks to its triple resistance to Electric-type attacks.
