My Hydreigon is suffering from serious Four-Moveslot Syndrome. I'll cut right to the chase (this is for VGC).

EVs: 252 SpA / 108 HP / 132 Def / 12 SDef / 4 Spe
- Earth Power
- Draco Meteor
- Dark Pulse
- Protect / Flamethrower / Fire Blast
I'm running Life Orb over Choice Specs to be able to switch between attacks and to utilize Protect. However, using Protect forces me to either drop one of my STABs or a valuable coverage move. Earth Power was deemed too valuable to hit Mega Mawile and company, but without Flamethrower/Fire Blast I cannot check Breloom and his cronies.
On my team I do have a Zapdos with Heat Wave and a Chandelure with Flamethrower, but I may find myself switching Chandy for Heatran. I won't be bringing Heatran to the same matches as Hydreigon because of the shared Fighting weakness, and I hardly think Zapdos will provide adequate Fire coverage.
TL;DR Do I keep Protect on Hydreigon or opt for Fire coverage?
