Speed freak, I'd suggest putting your moveset as an answer instead of in the question, so people can vote it up.
Check the guide here: http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/682
Likely Tier: Uber.
lol why're people using these sets
Anyway, here's a pretty good one that I use, whenever i actually USE Reshiram seriously (and it's my fave mon too).
This is just a generic bulky Reshi set.
Reshiram  @ Life Orb  
Ability: Turboblaze  
EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 SpD  
Modest Nature  
- Roost  
- Blue Flare  
- Dragon Pulse  
- Earth Power

An incredibly powerful Dragon type. This guy is of course Uber. With these stats, how can it not be? However, I think it worse than Zekrom.

Ability: Turbo Blaze

EVs: HP, Speed, Special Attack Nature: Modest

Blue Flame/Cross Flame: Power or accuracy? Always a great question. Choose wisely. Which one do you think will be more helpful? Also can make use of Turbo Blaze I think.

Dragon Pulse: Dragon type STAB move, great for Uber battling.

Reflect: Helps it to survive physical blows, which Ground, Rock, and Dragon usually are. This gives it an advantage against other Dragons.

Shadow Ball: Uber. Psychic. Weakness. Ghost. Figure. Out. For. Yourself. What. I. Am. Saying.

Turbo Reshiram

Nature: Timid/Modest
Ability: Turbo-blaze
Item: Leftovers
EVs: 252 S.attack, 252 Speed, 6 Hp


Flame-charge
Blue-flare
Dragon-pulse
Psychic/HP(Ground)/Shadow-ball


Flame-charge has no offensive use on this set it is for raising his speed from Decent to great. Blue-flare is the STAB and it is VERY STRONG STAB at that. Dragon-pulse is also STAB. Psychic/HP(Ground)/Shadow-ball choose your coverage move.

psychic and shadow ball doesnt even cover anything for reshiram. he has 3 weaknesses: Dragon, which is easy to cover, rock and ground. psychic is good against fight and poison, ghost is good against ghost, fighting, psichic, so two of the three coverage moves you wrote there arent even coverage.
Coverage does not necessarily mean coverage over your weakness. BTW Ghost is not Super-effective on Fighting :P

Sun Glasses

Item: Choice-specs
Ability: Turbo-blaze
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 252 S.Attack, 252 Speed, 6 Hp


Blue-flare

Draco-meteor or Dragon-pulse

Solar-beam

Focus-blast


Use with Sun Support. This set is all about doing ridicules amounts of damage. Blue-flare is super strong STAB in the Sun! Draco-meteor is STAB+Switch while Dragon-pulse would be for continued use. Solar-beam is powerful coverage. Focus-blast is strong coverage. Just to give you an idea of how strong this is, in the Sun Reshiram's Blue-flare can 2KO full S.Defense and HP Lugia with Multi-scale.

If anyone is wondering why I did not put in Shadow ball it is because, even though it has awesome coverage in Uber, Blue-flare hits harder on anything that takes Super effective damage from Shadow ball except on Giratina and Lati@s who take super-effective damage from Dragon-pulse/Draco-meteor.

Super-effective Shadow-ball = 160 Base power
Neutral Reshiram Blue-flare = 195 Base power (292.5 with Sun)

Well, I never use Legendary pokemon, but Reshiram has an okay movepool.

Hold Item: Wide Lens (increase accuracy of Draco Meteor/Blue Flare)
Ability: Turboblaze
Nature: Timid

  • Blue Flare - Lv. 100, a powerful Sp.Atk. with 130 power, 20% chance of burning.
  • Draco Meteor (move tutor)/Outrage (Lv. 85) - You can choose either the most powerful dragon move with 140 Sp.Atk. power with 5 PP that harshly decreases your Sp.Atk., or a 2-3 turn Atk. move with 120 power and 10 PP, but with a recoil of confusion.
  • Solarbeam - TM22, 120 power, charges up 1st turn and attacks the 2nd. Takes out ground/rock types that are a nuisance.
  • Sunny Day/other move to back up any low PP moves - Sunny Day to allow the immediate use of Solarbeam and increases Blue Flare's power. The other option is to use a backup move to either counter another type or back up another move in the set (ie:Flamethrower isn't as strong as Blue Flare, but has 3x the PP)

Reshiram @ Absorb Bulb
Trait: Turboblaze
EVs: Sp.Attack/Attack/Speed
Relaxed Nature (+Def -Spd)

  1. Blue Flare (LV.100)
  2. Fusion Flare (LV.50)
  3. Hyper Beam (TM15)
  4. Focus Blast (TM52)

First two have STAB. Hyper Beam has lots of power and it gets more power because it has more power from sp.attack. Focus Blast is to bat the rock types.

Just saying, but Hyper Beam kinda sucks. Dragon Pulse and Draco Meteor are both STAB and they dont have to recharge

Ok here is my favorite pwning beast which is best served under the sun:

Reshiram @ Choice Specs
Turboblaze
Modest
252 SpA/ 4 HP/ 252 Spe

Blue Flare
Fusion Flare
Dragon Pulse
Draco Meteor

Ok, so many people are think, what the... no coverage? But Fire and Dragon have perfect coverage! Blue Flare is the best STAB move of choice, and under the sun will OHKO anything that does not resist it, excluding the pink blobs, and leave massive dents in those that do. Fusion Flare may be weaker, but with its 100/100 typing, he doesn't need to worry about missing his target. Dragon Pulse is also STAB and will leave hole in your opponents team that will stay forever! Draco Meteor is a favorite though because the first one will OHKO almost anything in the Ubers tier excluding bulky types like Lugia, Ferrothorn, Arceus-Steel, and few others.

The best moveset for Reshiram is:

1.Fusion Flare

2.Blue Flare

3.Draco Meteor

4.Dragon Pulse

These moves shows Reshiram's power and in mine Pokemon Black Version I have never lost with these moves, I have tried and with other movesets but I lose with only these moves I always win.

Alright, this is a bit late, but,

Reshiram @ Charcoal

EV's: 252 Sp. Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Moves:

Blue Flare, amazing power and STAB
Dragon Pulse, pretty good power and STAB
Solar Beam, Rock/Ground/Water coverage

After using Sunny Day, Blue Flare will do 210% damage. That makes it do 273 damage with STAB, Charcoal and Sun boost.
