Likely tier: Overused.

i run tri attack, dragon pulse, flamethrower, and dark pulse
STAB on dragon pulse and dark pulse, flamethrower for coverage, and tri attack is amazing

I think Hydreigon best chance is:

Item: Draco Plate.

nature: brave (+Atk -Spd)

Fire blast : Covers ice and bug weakness and is strong.

Zen headbutt : Covers fighting weakness and has a chance of flinching.

Draco meteor :Good STAB and high a damage . With Draco Plate damage is very high.

Dark pulse : STAB

I'd run Crunch>Dark Pulse if going mixed.

If lowering attack with bold, run Dragon Pulse over Dragon Rush. Rush is unreliable anyway.

Hydreigon @Leftovers/Choice Scarf/Life Orb
Trait: Levitate
Nature: Timid (preferable, you want speed for this move set ) / Modest (if you want extra power)
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4HP
Dragon Pulse - STAB, coverage, powerful etc.
Dark Pulse - Once again, STAB coverage powerful etc.
Flamethrower - destroys Bug and Ice, some of your weakensess, also a powerful move
Flash Cannon - FAIRY TYPES!!! This move is essential, being extremely powerful, but more importantly, it takes out your greatest weakness. This move must be included in this Pokemon's move set

Zweilios@Eviolite/Choice Band

enter image description here
Ability: Hustle
Role:Trick Room Sweeper
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Hp, 4 Sp.D
IVs: 0 Spd
Nature: Brave

Hustle makes this thing hit like a truck. with Choice Band and Hustle, it effectivly gets doubled attack, making base 590, or the most powerful Outrage User, even better than Mega-Rayquaza. if, however, you want to survive better, Eviolite makes up for when it misses. the rest are extremely powerful coverage moves (walled only by Steel/Fairy).
