I'm predicting UU or RU. combo of bulk and power is likely too good for NU
Yeah, but its movepool is somewhat garbage.

Regidrago @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Dragon's Maw
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
- Dragon Energy
- Explosion
- Hammer Arm
- Outrage
A mixed set with scarf dragon energy. It's ability makes up for its lower sp attack, and more are put into attack. Explosion is for a last ditch attempt, outrage for when your low on hp, and hammer arm for steel.

It has a crappy movepool, just spam dragon energy. 150 power STAB with Dragon’s maw boost is very powerful.

Why are these new Regis so bad in terms of movepools?

Regidrago @ Assault Vest
Ability: Dragon's Maw
EVs: 252 Def / 252 Atk / 4 SpA
Lonely Nature
- Dragon Energy
- Ancient Power
- Crunch
- Fire Fang

Dragon Energy is a nice STAB move. Fire Fang covers Ice types, and Regidrago's movepool is just awful, there's not many choices. Ancient Power and Crunch are both coverage. The Assault Vest attempts to patch up this Regi's measly Special Defense a bit.

investing in hp is an extreme waste of evs. especially with assault vest. you should be putting all of those evs into special defense or literally anything other than hp
*cough cough* Dragon Energy *cough*

Regidrago @ Life Orb
Ability: Dragon's Maw
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Scale Shot
- Crunch
- Fire Fang
- Facade / Dragon Claw

Scale Shot to improve speed and go through sashes/substitutes. Crunch is misc coverage. Fire Fang is for ice and steels. Facade is to punish status, but Dragon Claw can be used for a more reliable dragon move.

Regidrago @life orb/leftovers
Ability: dragon maw
EV: 252atk/252spe/4sp.def
Jolly nature
- dragon dance

Dragon dance makes it insanely fast, and shld be able to outspeed zeraora. Explosion if you Kno you gonna die.
Dragon claw or outrage is powerful STAB or though as it prob won't last long, I would choose outrage.
Crunch to hit ghost which are immune to explosion

Hasty/Timid Nature
6 Atk, 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed
Item: Choice Scarf

  1. Dragon Energy
  2. Draco Meteor
  3. Ancient Power
  4. Explosion/Dragon Pulse/Hyper Beam

Regidrago's Signature Ability, Dragon's Maw, is the sole redeeming quality to a Pokemon that would otherwise be rather weak given its average 100 base offenses and terrible coverage options. At full HP, Dragon Energy is a 150 BP STAB move launched further to an incredible 225 BP before STAB, making it extremely powerful to the point where it can one-shot an assortment of Pokemon. This Choice Scarf set is meant to allow it to outspeed the numerous Pokemon it can OHKO, and makes it very fast overall. Regidrago can easily wreck an opposing team once the Steel-Types and Fairy types are removed. Because Dragon Energy's power is HP dependent, Draco Meteor is used alongside Dragon Energy to ensure that it can still keep OHKOing all in its way even if its health goes down. 130 BP is still very solid compared to 150. After that though, Regidrago's movepool is so pitifully small that, more often than not, you might as well not run anything. Ancient Power is kind-of usable... not really, but if you absolutely have to use something other than Dragon STAB, I guess it's better than nothing? Other than that, an all-Out attack in Explosion is probably going to be the best thing it can really offer. You could use Dragon Pulse, but really, nothing in the 4th slot is going to be used very often at all at this point, not even a third STAB. The only real reason to use Hyper Beam is if you're using Regidrago in a format that lets him Dynamax (In which it should definitely be used) or you somehow think it'll live after that to get off another attack.

Role: Fast N’ Strong Sweeper

Regidrago @ Focus Sash/ Leftovers
Ability: Dragon's Maw
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Dragon Claw
- Fire Fang/ Hammer Arm
Explosion/ Substitute

Dragon’s Maw is powerful, multiplying Regidrago’s Dragon-type attacks by 1.5x, although Regidrago’s movepool is not that great for much coverage either. Focus Sash is for guaranteeing you get a D-dance off, although Icicle Spear Kyurem and priority users such as Aegislash, which needs to be immediately eliminated. Dragon Claw is STAB and gets boosted by Dragon’s Maw, which makes knocking out Dragon types and other types that are neutral to Dragon type moves easy peasy. Fire Fang is for coverage against Steel types such as Skarmory and Aegislash, and don’t forget our little buddy Excadrill. Hammer Arm is another choice, as it hits Steel types harder, but doesn’t affect Aegislash at all, so Fire Fang > Hammer Arm. Explosion is a very tricky choice, as it is very powerful and physical, making a great suicide choice for when facing Fairy types, except Magearna, which gets countered by Fire Fang.
Although Magearna will be 2HKOed by a Regidrago’s Fire Fang that D-danced twice, Teleport Clefable gets OHKOed by Regidrago with 2 times D-dance and with the cost of Regidrago itself, so hope that Clefable or Magearna uses Stealth Rock first or predicts mistakenly and switches, so you can still save that Focus Sash and D-dance twice, or even, luckily, thrice, if Ferrothorn sets up the rocks and spikes. Substitute is mandatory with Leftovers, as it immediately renders Focus Sash useless. Substitute also covers Regidrago from Ferrothorn’s annoying T-wave or Toxic, as it makes Regidrago not a reliable source of recovery. Its all really just about predicting.

Hope you like this moveset.
