Is Hydreigon a good Breaker in Gen 8 OU? Mine moveset is this:
Hydreigon @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Nasty Plot
- Substitute
- Dark Pulse
- Earth Power
Is this a good moveset for a Wallbreaker Hydreigon?

Yes, just replace Earth Power and Substitute with Flash Cannon and Draco Meteor.

Hydreigon is one of the scariest wallbreakers out there, as after a
Nasty Plot boost, there are only a handful of Pokemon that can
withstand its attacks. It is most commonly used on balance and bulky
offensive teams looking to blow holes in opposing balance teams. It
also carries some defensive utility with it, most notably being a
solid check to Rotom-H and serving as a Ghost-resistant Pokemon, which
makes playing around Choice Specs Dragapult much easier. Fast Pokemon
that can clean up after it, such as Dragapult and Zeraora, make for
appropriate teammates. Teleport users like Blissey and Slowbro are
also much appreciated, as they are able to soak up a hit and bring it
in safely afterwards.

That's what it said on Smogon.

Here's the set in Smogon:

Hydreigon @ Life Orb Ability: Levitate EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Nasty Plot
- Draco Meteor
- Flash Cannon
- Roost

I mean, that's the reason Hydreigon got to OU, right?

Hope this helps :).

Thanks for the answer! What wallbreaker do you use in Pokemon Showdown?
Zeraora, Urshifu Single Strike, Kyurem, Magnezone, Rillaboom, umm, honestly, all my team are wallbreakers. JUst that some are bulky.
