You have asked the right person
Now, I am telling you a good moveset for Mega Charizard Y
Item-charizatile Y
Ability-Drought
1. Flame Thrower: good power, high accuracy, STAB, chance to burn, for grass
2. Solar Beam: excellent power, high accuracy, charges instantly in harsh sunlight, for water
3. Earthquake: good power, high accuracy, power doubles on dig, for electric
4. Dragon Pulse: good power, high accuracy, for dragons

My AWSOME!!! Starter Charizard Has:

Nature:Jolly

Held Item: Charizardite Y

Ability:Blaze

Ev's: MAX ATTACK, 179 SPD, 252 DEFENCE

Moves: Heat Wave, Earth Quake, Solar Beam, Dragon Claw

Heat Wave:I didnt choose flare blitz because it has damage to the user,How Ever Heat Wave has damage close to flare blitz's and it damages BOTH of the opponents AND it has no damage to the user.(oh boy I'm about to get alot of hate because not choozing flare blitz)

Solar Beam:The mega stone CHARIZARDITE Y give charizards the ability ''Drought'' which makes solar beams charging not happen so that gets rid of ground,water,rock,

Earth Quake:Charizards biggest weakness electric gets rekt by this move rock too.

Dragon Claw: Charizard can easily be beaten by dragon types but dragon claw gives it a chance if you have max speed and alot of health you can get rid of dragon types.

This IS MY CHARIZARD'S MOVE SET its not chosen by public this is the best move set in my opinion.

Charizard (M) @ Charizardite X
Ability - Tough Claws
EVs = 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Nature : Jolly

-Dragon Dance
-Dragon Claw
-Flare Blitz
-Roost/Earthquake

Dragon Dance allows Charizard to boost its Attack and Speed simultaneously. Dragon Claw is a powerful STAB attack that is boosted by Tough Claws. Flare Blitz is a nuke able to take on Steel-types, which resist Dragon Claw. Roost improves Charizard's longevity, eases setup, and allows it to stay out of range of revenge killers. Earthquake is an option to deal great damage to Tyranitar and Toxapex as well as OHKO Heatran.

If you want a charizard that has moves for type coverage. Here's my charizard's moves:

solar beam
heat wave
dragon claw
earthquake

Make sure it's item is charizardite Y so solar beam can execute on one turn. solar beam gives coverage for water and rock. earthquake gives coverage for electric

Alternatively, you can have this one:

Fire fang
dragon pulse
steel wing/ iron tail
Shadow claw/ swords dance
item: charizardite X

now these moves are best used with mega charizard X because fire fang, shadow claw, steel wing and iron tail are contact moves, which gets boosted with the ability tough claws.

Hoped this helps!

This is a realy OP recipe for Mega Charizard that I found on every single game. WARNING: DO NOT COMPLAIN BEFORE TRYING!!!
So here is it:
• Mega Charizard X:
Held item: Charizardite X; Ability: Tough Claws (duh!)
Nature: Jolly (-SpA;+Spe); Evs: 252 Atk; 252 Spe; 4 SpD.
-Dragon Dance.
-Dragon Claw.
-Earthquake.
-Flare Blitz.
•Mega Charizard Y:
Held item: Charizardite Y; Ability: Drought (again, duh!!!)
Nature: Timid (-Atk;+Spe); Evs: 252 SpA; 252 Spe; 4 Def.
-Flamethrower.
-Air Slash.
-Solar Beam.
-Dragon Pulse.
So here's some tips: Do not let Y fight against any faster Water or Rock type Pokemons even when he have Solar Beam. Also X can handle a Rock Slide, but not an Earthquake, so be careful!

Alright maggots listen up!
We have to look at 2 different Mega Evolutions of Charizard!
It won`t be an easy task but I,ll try my best!

Mega Charizard X
Ability: Tough Claws
1st Move: Flare Blitz (the best physical Fire-type move but very risky because of recoil)
2nd Move: d-Claw/d-Rush/d-Tail (basically you choose)
3rd Move: Steel Wing/Brick Break/Eartquake (basically covering Rock-type weakness - use Move Tutor moves too)
4th Move: Hidden Power - Ice (the only move that can help against Ground-types)

Mega Charizard Y
Ability: drought
1st Move: Flamethrower/Fire Blast/etc.
2nd Move: Air Slash
3rd Move: Solar Beam (u have drought - go figure yourself)
4th Move: Eartquake (u know this 1 aswell)

Alright maggots that,s it!
Let me know what you think :)

Charizard (Mega X) @ charizardite X

My ideal moveset would be
-Flare blitz with a base power of 120
-Inferno with a base power of 100
-Solar beam is a good water type coverage with a base power of 120
-Giga impact with a base power of 150
I'm the sort of person who always likes power.

Special Mega X set anyone?

Charizard @Charizardite X
Ability: Blaze---->Tough Claws
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Spe, 4 Def
Nature: Modest/Timid
Moves:
Flamethrower
Dragon Pulse
Air Cutter/HP Steel

See, everybody expects him to be a pshysical attacker, so they switch to a physical wall.

And then you OHKO them with flamethrower!

but mega charizard x is a wallbreaker so it wouldn't matter about walls
No the point is that they expect him to be physical which he isn't therefore you can possible score a free KO on one of their Pokemon.
