Im working on a new team and im worried that haveing flygon and dragnite on the same team will make it weak, but I really like them both.

I would say just have one Dragon type. If you ever do have two Pokemon tht share a type, mak sure that they don't share a weakness (for example, my team has Garchomp and Swampert, who don't have any of the same weaknesses.)

selected by
Fly gon is dragon ground and dragonite is dragon flying
Suicune1413, that means they are both 4x weak to Ice which is quite a major weakness. You'd be best replacing one of those for a pokemon like Kingdra/Dialga/Palkia.
Just teach them flamethrower.
Bad idea teaching them flamethrower, seeing how they both specialize in attack. Try rock, steel, or fighting type moves.
Relying on a fire move to protect you from an anti-dragon team member is no good, since there are plenty of non-ice Pokémon that can learn Ice Beam or Ice Fang.
