    Going to test the mixed set out for myself before approving / rejecting it, so yeah.

    On the contrary, both of these Pokemon end up being stronger than in almost all cases. Yes initially, they're weaker, but they can easily set up due to their bulk + typing. In Scrafty's case it is capable of using Dragon Dance, and when paired with Moxie its actually pretty vicious lategame. Virizion can run 2 equally deadly sets (Swords Dance or Calm Mind) whereas Flygon is pretty limited offensively. It doesn't have a good boosting move, and its limited to running a choice band to increase its power. I find that these comparisons are pointless because all 3 of these Pokemon do different things.


    A set that revolves around a single Pokemon isn't good. Yes, this Flygon can lure out Gliscor... but what else? Its flat out worse at being a special attacker than every other Dragon i've listed. That too me is the definition of being outclassed. Maybe not "overshadowed" due to its unique benefits, but those benefits aren't that good. It's dead weight if Gliscor isn't on the opposing team. If you take a look at the usage statistics, Gliscor is at an all time low, its #11. It isn't nearly as common now that Excadrill is banned, and it doesn't have a huge presence in the metagame. In fact, nowadays more and more Gliscor's are running SubSD, which gives this set even less of a niche.

    Flygon is definitely outclassed. Power, speed or bulk define the dragons in OU and Flygon has neither of these things. It has access to an awesome STAB combo, but can't make good use out of it. In fact, Haxorus is flat out better at Outrage / Earthquake because of Mold Breaker (which lets it target levitators that make Earthquakers a liability) and the fact that its Earthquakes just as strong as Flygons. Dragonite and Salamence outclass it offensively, can boost their speed and are better choice users (Dragonite with CB / Salamence with CS). They're used despite their SR weaknesses because they're really, really good. On paper, that SR weakness is a major hindrance, but a team that wants to make good use out of them will assuredly run a Rapid Spin user. Even if they don't, when SR is on the field CB nite / Mence / Haxorus (for posterities sake) are STILL better because of the damage they can do. Flygon can't break through anything.

    There is 0 reason to use the Choice Band because every single other Dragon type in the tier is better. Choiced Fire Blast is terrible. It leaves you prone to being set up on some of the most dangerous threats in the tier like Terrakion, Volcorona and opposing dragons. It doesn't even do good damage against Skarmory, and the Skarmory user will immediately switch out and turn Flygon into a liablity. Its minor advantages are completely and utterly irrelevant in the grand scope of things.

    I stand by what I said, Flygon is too weak / outclassed in OU.

    All I can say mate, is that you're being very narrow minded.

    The initial power can make all the difference. Over the course of two turns, two consecutive attacks at +1 do more damage than one attack at +1 (or +2). Flygon isn't supposed to sweep, it's supposed to attack, then gtfo.


    Jeez, when I say Gliscor, I expect you to be able to extrapolate that to meaning "physical walls". I'd expect a QC member like yourself to be able to make those kind of associations. But since we're here, let's list the other stuff that Flygon lures out better than the other Dragons. I've listed a bunch there already in the calculations: Slowbro, Hippowdon, Quagsire, Skarmory, Bronzong. Yeah, you may say they aren't very common, but those are the most common physical walls out there. The list can also extend to other physically bulky Pokemon like Ferrothorn, Gyarados, Donphan, Cloyster. #11 is pretty damn high for Gliscor as well. If there isn't one of those Pokemon on your opponent's team, that's good news since your physically inclined team will have an easy time battering the opponent down. Even if there aren't Flygon isn't completely useless. Yes, the other dragons are better at Special Attacking, but even off 284 SpA, Draco Meteor still hurts shit.

    Just saying that Heatproof Bronzong calc of yours showed that Flygon had a much bigger chance of OHKOing the thing after SR and Leftovers than Haxorus does, heh.

    Firstly, being outclassed is not an excuse to not have an analysis. I remember you were very favouring this notion back when you approved UU Raichu. If Stealth Rock is up, I'd much rather use CB Flygon over CB Dragonite anyday. I'd much prefer a Pokemon that can gain momentum with U-turn, take nothing next to nothing from SR and come in again and again. Having a Rapid Spinner is just an extra bit of support that Flygon doesn't need. By that logic you can say "well Charizard is awesome because in the sun and with spin support it completely trashes everything!". Eh hehe, no. Again, Choiced Fire Blast shouldn't even come into the argument. It's only a coverage move. You could easily say CB Terrakion because EQ turns it into setup fodder for Flying-types and Levitators if that's the case. It is completely trivial that you don't need to talk about it. Flygon has its advantages over the other dragons and I'll name them again, and they are quite big, actually.

    1) Hazards immunity and resistances - With Ferrothorn everywhere and Spikes quite common, taking stuff like 25% per switch-in for Haxorus (SR + Spikes x1), Dragonite and Salamence (SR). The ones with Levitate aren't physical attackers anyway. That SR weakness hurts Dragonite and Mence more than you think. I can bring Flygon in and spam with much less reservation than I would with the two Flying dragons.

    2) U-turn - Walks hand in hand with the hazards immunity. You know how Voltturn hates hazards? Well Flygon doesn't give a shit. Outside of U-turn, it also has you know, that brilliant pair of STABs. It also eases prediction, which the other Uber Dragons (particularly Dragonite) really needs to do because of their hazard weaknesses.

    3) Dual STABs - Yes, Haxorus's EQ is similar to Flygon's. However, Flygon's is still stronger. For example, Flygon's EQ does 42.90% - 50.57% to 252/88+ Ferrothorn. Haxorus's does 37.50% - 44.32%. Quite a big difference, actually. Flygon's EQ has about a 98% chance to 2HKO Rocky Helmet Ferrothorn after a layer of Spikes while Haxorus has about a 1% chance. You can say that Haxorus can kill Ferrothorn if it uses Brick Break, but what would rather lock yourself into, a 75 BP unSTAB'd move or a 100 BP STAB'd move? This is not to mention that 25% damage you're taking due to Iron Barbs and Rocky Helmet. This shit is significant.

    4) Speed. While base 100 isn't the benchmark any more, Flygon is still tied with Salamence as the fastest physical Dragon in OU (not going to count Latios, because virtually no-one uses DD Latios). You can say a base 147 Attack to base 100 Attack is a huge difference, but I say a base 100 Speed to base 97 Speed difference is even bigger. This metagame is ruled by Speed.

    So yeah, PK Straw Hat, you need to broaden your thinking.

    Ok.

    I'm stubborn at times but i'm not incorrigible. If i'm unsure of something or i'm QCing a controversial Pokemon, I ask others for some much needed feedback. I asked a fair amount of users (QC and regular) what they thought of Flygon and the majority of the responses were negative.

    There's no point in further arguing since we'll end up going circles. I my humble opinion the summation of Flygon's individuals perks (Levitate, ability to lure out physical wall) just isn't up to par. We can argue that Flygon's lack of SR weakness in comparison to Dragonite / Salamence, or its ability to lure out physical attackers gives it an edge, but in reality it doesn't. Pokemon like that don't need to lure out defensive threats because they're so powerful they'll end up doing it anyway. Anyway I don't have much else to say on the matter, there are still some QC members left who are undecided so they might end up approving Flygon. As for me, I adamantly stand by my rejection.

    Finally, there is no excuse to post sarcastic and tasteless quips. Don't get me wrong, i'm not a tightass and those posts don't really offend me.They're just unneeded imo and they don't help your case. They make you come off as very petty.

    Hey, I in no way am attacking your character, nor do I expect you to remove your rejection. For a QC member, I do expect you to think outside the box a bit more when you're arguing with me (the Gliscor bit is mostly what I'm talking about). I'm just pointing out things in your argument that I disagree with, just so if anybody else has a similar stance, they might give it a second look.

    Everybody else carry on.

    That wasn't even the main crux of my argument though. Ok, there are way more physically bulky walls in OU than just Gliscor, but I can't help but disregard them; none of them are common. Hippowdon, Slowbro, Quagsire are BL and below. There's no point in selling a set that can beat things that are about as rare as Flygon itself.

    That isn't even the main point here. I know Flygon can do this, but the other Dragon types do it a lot better. They're not as likely to lure out Pokemon like Gliscor and the other physical defensive Pokemon like Hippo, Quagsire, etc, but thats not a problem because most teams don't have a choice and end up using those defensive threats to check those Pokemon anyway (at least Pokemon like Haxorus and Dragonite; with Salamence players will obviously take discretion). Basically it boils down to this; The other dragons are better / the main point of the selling point of the set isn't good enough.

    Just posting this because I don't want you to think i'm close minded. I'm stubborn and a bit dimwitted at times, but never close minded. I even ended testing Flygon (and i've done so in the past) and my results were all less than satisfactory.

    shrang, I don't appreciate your offensive attitude that implied doubt in PK Gaming's capabilities - never do that again. You're lucky that he's a chill dude.

    You certainly have valid points, but so does PK Gaming. The best way for you to support your stance is to provide us with some logs or replays of Lure Flygon and CB Flygon doing the job you claimed they do. I will test your sets myself if we are still at a stand-still, but providing logs / replay would quicken the process.

    Based on what Chou Toshio and I said, I still think a Scarfed set is the best Flygon point. And I'm problably not the only one. Won't you really consider it ? And what about QC members, what do you think of it ?

    Yeah, I'm considering it, but I'll get some QC input before putting it in.

    Firstly, I'm going to include a Scarf set for the reasons that Chou pointed out. I personally find it a bit weak and lacking, but Chou has some really good reasoning. EDIT: Scarf set is up.

    Okay, I've gone and got some logs that were requested. I've obviously not included ones where Flygon did absolutely nothing, but more of the kind of "typical day at the office" battles that Flygon gets.

    There are standards and codes. You trying to push Flygon is most unorthodox. You make the users on this site uncomfortable. I will see to it that you're banned for posting in C&C forever.

    ***

    Just kidding, I checked over the logs and started thinking it over. Keep in mind that a great deal many of them weren't that impressive tbh, but a one main thing struck out.

    His typing: Immunity to electric moves. This hinders Rotom-W more than anything, since I don't T-wave has an overwhelming presence in OU. Basically Flygon can throw a wrench in Volt-turn with that typing of his. This is best aspect of Flygon since despite having awesome dual STABs its weak as dirt.

    Durability: It's defenses are meh, but that typing makes immune to spikes and SR like you say. The other dragons are either SR weak (Mence, Dnite) pursuit weak (Lati@s).

    And with that, I revoke my previous rejection and:

    QC APPROVED (1/3)

    Though I want to make it clear that Flygon isn't good by any stretch. In fact, its barely on the cusp of being viable in BW OU. Even though the other dragons have weaknesses, they're still miles above Flygon so I think its important to stress that in the analysis. Use Flygon because you have to use it, not because its "cool" or "unique." I only have a few suggestions. Swap U-turn with Roost in on the lure set and mention that Fire Blast (while it has the ability to 2HKO Skarmory) on the Choice Band can turn Flygon into a liability should any of BW OU's top tier threats decide to set up on it.

    Nice, thanks PK. I'll mention all those things. Oh, I apologise if I came out rude in my responses, I actually wasn't trying to be mean o_0.

    Awesome logs, shrang - you overdid yourself. From reading the logs, I would even say CB Flygon should deserve the top spot and the the lure set 2nd, since its bulk and power came in much more handy imo.

    I would otherwise approve this, but I am not too certain about Scarf Flygon yet. Perhaps Scarf can be left as an OO mention?

    Mmm, I guess I could go and test the Scarf set, since Chou did put up some really good reasoning.

    Okay, I got a couple of logs here. From what I've seen, Scarf Flygon is definitely usable, even though it's just ordinary at best. There's nothing flashy about it, but it gets the job done (like all the other Flygon sets).

    Great stuff - Scarf Flygon did exactly what Chou Toshio said, and you did a nice job executing it. The sets are all viable :)

    I believe that Outrage at least deserves an AC mention on the Lure Flygon set. It does not pack nearly as much punch as an Outrage from other mixed dragons, all of which can afford to invest in their Atk, but it's still hitting just as hard as your Scarf Flygon's Outrage, so it's still doing respectable damage to a team that lost their first defense to physical assaults.

    Now on to the analysis itself. Counters of each set are only meant to provide context to the teammates suggestion that you make. If you mention P2 and Cresselia as CB Flygon counters, for instance, make sure you offer teammates to deal with them (ie SD Scizor). You also mentioned a host of counters to Lure Flygon without providing possible teammates to deal with them.

    Also the Checks and Counters section needs more detail - it's supposed to be a comprehensive and well-organized section that people can easily identify ways to beat opposing Flygons. You need to provide specific Pokemon - not generalizations, like bulky Water mons or faster strong-hitters. You also forgot to mention powerful priority from the likes of Mamoswine or CB Scizor, as well as set-up sweepers like SD Scizor and Shell Smash Cloyster against your CB Flygon. You may possibly move the list of counters you provided on CB Flygon and Lure Flygon in here, and expand upon their capabilities of addressing opposing Flygons.

    It would suck if somehow the opponent knows that your Flygon is a lure-set and walls you with those mons. You would ideally want a partner to remove these walls to allow Flygon to do its job (punching holes). Mention something like CBTar here, and you're good to go.

    Grammar Check (open)


    [Overview]

    <p>Flygon is probably one of the biggest victims of 5th generationBW's power creep. With three new powerful OU or BL Dragon-types introduced, upgrades to Dragonite and the dropping dowemotion of Salamence, Latias, and Latios from Ubers, the competition was just far too great, and Flygon fell from very high OU in 4th generationDPP to being a staple on 5th generationBW UU teams. The introduction of Team Preview also made the "scouting" job redundant. However, this is not to mean that Flygon is bad in OU, since it still has its distinct advantages over the other Dragon-types. Its excellent offensive typing, Levitate for virtual immunity to all hazards, immunity to Thunder Wave, and decent Speed stat still make it very attractive in its own way. However, even with these fabulous toys, Flygon is still very much on the "weak" end of the OU spectrum, and needs to take full advantage of these toys; otherwise, you're better off using a better dragon.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Choice Band
    move 1: Outrage
    move 2: Earthquake
    move 3: U-turn
    move 4: Fire Blast / Stone Edge
    item: Choice Band
    nature: Adamant / Jolly
    evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>While Flygon's Attack stat of 100 is below average this generation, it can remedy this by slapping on a Choice Band, boosting it to more respectable levels. The upside of using Flygon is its fantastic offensive coverage, as between Outrage and Earthquake, Flygon hits 676 out of 680 of the total Pokemon for neutral or better damage. It doesn't end here, as Flygon can fully take advantage of its immunity to hazards to hold momentum with U-turn. Flygon's greatest advantage of its new found rival Landorus is its access to Dragon STAB. Fire Blast is preferred in the final slot just so Skarmory thinks twice before switching in, as Fire Blast 2HKOs it in neutral weather. Note that apart from 2HKOing Skarmory, Fire Blast is very weak and is easily set up on. Stone Edge can be used in the final slot forto attain "EdgeQuake" coverage, as well as OHKOingnd to net an OHKO on Volcarona.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>The EVs are as simple as you can get. Max Attack and Speed soprovide Flygon haswith maximum attackingoffensive potential. The nature is a bit more controversial, however, since Flygon really wants an Adamant nature to reach certain 2HKOs, such as Rocky Helmet Ferrothorn after one layer of Spikes damage, and the fact that it's lacking in power as it is. It also greatly appreciates any boost in power it can nab in general. However, a Jolly nature fully allows Flygon to take advantage of its Speed advantage over the newcomer dragons, and could very potentially decide a game.</p>

    <p>Skarmory, physically defensive Ferrothorn, and Bronzong can take hits from Flygon all day, although the former towo need rain to be able to cushion Fire Blast. Physically bulky walls, such as Slowbro, Gliscor, Tangrowth, Porygon2, and Cresselia, can take Flygon's attacks and retaliate reasonably hard. It is for this reason that Swords Dance Scizor is an excellent teammate to Flygon. It can set up on Ferrothorn, Bronzong, Porygon2, Tangrowth, and Cresselia, as well as Slowbro that lack a Fire-type move. Lucario works in a similar fashion, although it cannot defeat Cresselia. As an Outrage-spamming Pokemon, Magnezone is naturally a good teammate to remove opposing Steel-types. As for Slowbro and Gliscor, Rotom-W makes short work of both of them, while being a good "Volt-tTurn" partner for Flygon. Grass-types such as Celebi, Virizion, Rotom-C, and Shaymin also takes them out without much trouble, although Virizion won't enjoy Thunder Wave or Toxic from Slowbro, nor do any of them enjoy taking Acrobatics from Flying Gem Gliscor. Latios and Hydreigon does not like getting paralyzed by Thunder Wave either, but they can easily switch into Slowbro and Gliscor to fire off deadly Draco Meteors.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Mixed Lure
    move 1: Draco Meteor
    move 2: Fire Blast
    move 3: Earthquake
    move 4: U-turn / Roost
    item: Life Orb
    nature: Rash / Naive
    evs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>While this set may appear outclassed by Salamence, who boasts a much higher attacking stats, Flygon has a few unique qualities that different itself from the big blue salamander. Firstly, Flygon resists Stealth Rock, which allows it to switch in more frequently than Salamence, while secondly, it is immune to Thunder Wave. The biggest reason to use Flygon, however, is the fact that physical walls that neglect their Special Defense are much more likely to switch into Flygon than Salamence, only to meet their doom. Salamence's high base 110 Special Attack would make Pokemon such as Gliscor and Slowbro more hesitant to switch in. Flygon's base 80, however, is completely off the radar. However, while it may appear low, Flygon's Special Attack is just enough to severely cripple the main physical walls in the tier, as; with a Life Orb, and the combination of Draco Meteor and Fire Blast, itFlygon is still OHKOing andor 2HKOing most of them. Draco Meteor is the bread and butter of this set, as it easily puts Gliscor, Slowbro, Hippowdon, and Quagsire out of commision, and this allows another physical sweeper to sweep much more easily. Fire Blast OHKOs Skarmory and Ferrothorn, as well as while 2HKOing standard Bronzong. Earthquake is chosen over Earth Power because it hits Tyranitar, and Specially Defensive Heatran and Jirachi harder than Earth Power does. U-turn is preferred in the last slot because it severely damages Celebi, as well as keep while retaining momentum. Roost can be used for recovery if you desire it, although Flygon's frailness makes it bit hard to pull off a successful Roost.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>Here are some damage calculations to illustrate Flygon's ability to remove physical walls:</p>

    <ul class=”damage_calculation”>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 0 SpD Gliscor: 84.18% - 99.44%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 0 SpD Slowbro: 71.83% - 84.77%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Hippowdon: 72.86% - 85.95%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Quagsire: 84.01% - 99.24%</li>
    <li>Fire Blast vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Skarmory: 108.38% - 127.54%</li>
    <li>Fire Blast vs 252 HP / 92 SpD Sassy Bronzong: 65.09% - 76.92%</li>
    </ul>

    <p>The EVs used allow Flygon to outspeed any Pokemon up to base 100 Speed that are not boosted. A Naive nature can be used instead, but the power lost is considerable, especially when low damage rolls could mean that Gliscor with Protect can avoid being 2HKOed by Draco Meteor. Outrage is another option to put in the last slot, as it's still a powerful STAB attack that could hurt, even from 237 Attack.</p>

    <p>Since this set is aiming to lure out and destroy physical walls, physical sweepers that appreciate their removal are good teammates to Flygon. Swords Dance Lucario, Terrakion, Dragonite, Salamence, Haxorus, Swords Dance Virizion, and Landorus can all sweep with much more confidence when physical walls are out of the way. Lucario gets a special mention since it resists Flygon's two weaknesses, while Landorus shares common switch-ins with Flygon, which means its counters are easily smoked out by Flygon.</p>

    <p>Specially bulky Pokemon that aren't frail physically are generally good switch-ins to mixed Flygon. Jellicent can easily take a Draco Meteor and Recover off any damage. Deoxys-D, Porygon2, and Chansey all have huge overall defenses which prevent Flygon from breaking through them. Due to this reason, Choice Band Tyranitar is an excellent teammate to Flygon because of its ability to checkmate all of the aforementioned threats. Gengar threatens all of them with its powerful Shadow Ball and Focus Blast, although it needs be careful to avoid switching into Jellicent's own Shadow Ball. Vaporeon can also take hits from Mixed Flygon without much problem, either, and use Wish to heal itself. Bulky Grass-types such as Virizion and Celebi can set up on Vaporeon quite easily. Toxic Spikes also makes the life for those walls difficult. Forretress and Tentacruel can easily set up Toxic Spikes while resisting Flygon's Ice-type weakness, and in Forretress's case, Dragon-type weakness as well. Since Flygon is weak to both Ice- and Dragon-typed moves, bulky Water-types and Steel-types are useful teammates. Apart from Tentacruel, a Jellicent or Vaporeon of your own can absorb Ice-type attacks aimed at Flygon, while Steel-types such as Scizor, Metagross, and Bronzong are good at switching into Dragon-type attacks.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Choice Scarf

    move 2: Earthquake
    move 3: U-turn

    nature: Jolly
    evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>Flygon's good Speed stat and excellent type coverage makes it a workable Choice Scarf user in OU. It is able to revenge kill many threats, such as Dragon Dance Dragonite and Haxorus, Choice Scarf Hydreigon, as well as s; it also can Speed-tie with +1 Salamence or VolcaronaVolcarona or Salamence at the very worst. It still takes hardly anything from entry hazards, is immune to Thunder Wave, and can use U-turn to keep momentum. What sets Flygon apart from Landorus, the other Ground-type Choice Scarfer with U-turn, is its access to STAB Outrage. With its excellent pair of STABs, Flygon is possibly one of the most efficient late game cleaners in the game due to the number of Pokemon it can hit. It tends to force the opponent into hanging onto their more defensive Pokemon and lose offensive momentum. As such, Choice Scarf Flygon is useful in all stages of the match, as it can keep offensive momentum in the early game with U-turn, revenge kills threats mid-game, and clean up late game.</p>

    <p>Outrage and Earthquake are obviously Flygon's two excellent STAB attacks. U-turn allows Flygon to maintain momentum for the team and force switches to rack up entry hazard damage. Stone Edge is preferred in the last moveslot, as it allows Flygon to revenge kill Volcarona. However, if the fiery moth of no concern, Fire Blast can be used to give Skarmory a nasty surprise upon switch-in.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>ThunderPunch can be used in the final slot to revenge kill Gyarados, but is rather useless otherwise. Dragon Claw can also be used to avoid locking Flygon into Outrage, but Flygon is already very weak anyway, and really needs the power that Outrage provides. Although Flygon desperately needs power given by an Adamant nature, there are way too many Choice Scarf users that have between 448 and 492 Speed that Flygon can defeat, such as Haxorus, Hydreigon, and Kyurem. This is why only a Jolly nature is recommended.</p>

    <p>As a revenge killer, Flygon is pretty self-sufficient. However, there are Pokemon that can make its late-game cleaning job a lot easier. Since Flygon is very much on the weak side, it appreciates the weakening of bulky Pokemon so it can just swat them aside later. Removing Steel-types also helps its cause. This is why Magnezone is a fantastic teammate to Flygon. Not only does it resist both of Flygon's weaknesses, but it can also use its Magnet Pull ability to trap and remove Steel-types. Strong wall-breakers such as Choice Band Haxorus and Swords Dance Terrakion can also punch holes for Flygon to rampage through later. Also, since Flygon likes cleaning up in the late-game, Spikes can whittle opponents down into its KO range. With a layer of Spikes and Stealth Rock down, Pokemon such as Eviolite Chansey are much more nervous about switching into Flygon's Outrage. Ferrothorn is the premier Spiker of OU withdue to its excellent bulk and typing, as well and it also possesses good synergy with Flygon. Skarmory and Forretress are also good Spikers to runusers. As for spin-blockers to keep the Spikes down, Gengar is an excellent offensive spin-blocker, while Jellicent, Sableye, Dusclops can fit onto bulkier teams. Choice Scarf Rotom is another good spin-blocker who can also form a "Volt-turn" combo with Flygon.</p>

    [Other Options]

    <p>Screech Flygon was a decent set in generation 4DPP because of its ability to force switches. However, since the power creep of generation 5BW, this set isn't very viable any more, while U-turn forces switches very well anyway. Flygon can use Toxic, Earthquake, and Roost to try and stall, but its general frailty means it can't stall for very long, while its common counters such as, Gliscor and Skarmory, are immune to both Toxic and Earthquake. Flygon has access to Hone Claws as a boosting move, but every other Dragon-type in OU does a better job at boosting. Finally, Flygon is a rather interesting Shell Smash recipient. While it is relatively frail and doesn't resist any form of priority, its virtual immunity to hazards and Thunder Wave, as well as fantastic type coverage can make it hard to stop.</p>

    [Checks and Counters]

    <p>In general, if you want a full counter to Flygon, look no further than excessively bulky Pokemon such as Cresselia, Deoxys-D, Eviolite Chansey and Porygon2. Flygon's low attacking stats can never hope to break their thick hides. Bronzong, Skarmory, physically defensive Ferrothorn, and Forretress can take everything from Choice Band Flygon, although the latter three need to watch out for a well-timed Fire Blast. Bronzong can easily take Flygon out with Gyro Ball or Hidden Power Ice, while the other three can set up entry hazards at will. Physical walls such as Slowbro and Tangrowth can also switch into Choice Band Flygon and threaten with Scald and Giga Drain, respectively. However, both of them do not like being U-turned on. As for the mixed set, bulky Water-types with access to recovery, such as Jellicent, Vaporeon, and Milotic, can tank hits from Flygon all day, while threatening with nasty moves such as Scald, Ice Beam, or even a status move.</p>

    <p>Since Flygon is frail by this generation's standards, it is quite easy to take advantage of this and just hit Flygon very hard. Strong priority can take down Flygon very quickly. Ice Shard from Mamoswine and Weavile easily OHKOs it, while Donphan can 2HKO with an Ice Shard of its own. Choice Band Scizor is easily chewing off over 65% of Flygon's health with Bullet Punch, while Choice Band Dragonite is doing a similar amount with ExtremeSpeed. Pokemon that are faster than Flygon can easily revenge kill it. Terrakion completely annihilates Flygon with Close Combat, Starmie can OHKO with Ice Beam, Landorus and Virizion with Hidden Power Ice, and Latios with any of its Dragon-type moves. Beware however, that Flygon may be using a Choice Scarf, so these Pokemon need a Choice Scarf of their own to outspeed Choice Scarf Flygon.</p>

    [Overview]

    <p>Flygon is probably one of the biggest victims of BW's power creep. With three new powerful OU or BL Dragon-types introduced, upgrades to Dragonite and the demotion of Salamence, Latias, and Latios from Ubers, the competition was just far too great, and Flygon fell from very high OU in DPP to being a staple on BW UU teams. The introduction of Team Preview also made the "scouting" job redundant. However, this is not to mean that Flygon is bad in OU, since it still has its distinct advantages over the other Dragon-types. Its excellent offensive typing, Levitate for virtual immunity to all hazards, immunity to Thunder Wave, and decent Speed stat still make it very attractive in its own way. However, even with these fabulous toys, Flygon is still very much on the "weak" end of the OU spectrum, and needs to take full advantage of these toys; otherwise, you're better off using a better dragon.</p>

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>While Flygon's Attack stat of 100 is below average this generation, it can remedy this by slapping on a Choice Band, boosting it to more respectable levels. The upside of using Flygon is its fantastic offensive coverage, as between Outrage and Earthquake, Flygon hits 676 out of 680 of the total Pokemon for neutral or better damage. It doesn't end here, as Flygon can fully take advantage of its immunity to hazards to hold momentum with U-turn. Flygon's greatest advantage of its new found rival Landorus is its access to Dragon STAB. Fire Blast is preferred in the final slot just so Skarmory thinks twice before switching in, as Fire Blast 2HKOs it in neutral weather. Note that apart from 2HKOing Skarmory, Fire Blast is very weak and is easily set up on. Stone Edge can be used in the final slot to attain "EdgeQuake" coverage and to net an OHKO on Volcarona.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>The EVs are as simple as you can get. Max Attack and Speed provide Flygon with maximum offensive potential. The nature is a bit more controversial, however, since Flygon really wants an Adamant nature to reach certain 2HKOs, such as Rocky Helmet Ferrothorn after one layer of Spikes damage. It also greatly appreciates any boost in power it can nab in general. However, a Jolly nature fully allows Flygon to take advantage of its Speed advantage over the new dragons, and could potentially decide a game.</p>

    <p>Skarmory, physically defensive Ferrothorn, and Bronzong can take hits from Flygon all day, although the former two need rain to be able to cushion Fire Blast. Physically bulky walls, such as Slowbro, Gliscor, Tangrowth, Porygon2, and Cresselia, can take Flygon's attacks and retaliate reasonably hard. It is for this reason that Swords Dance Scizor is an excellent teammate to Flygon. It can set up on Ferrothorn, Bronzong, Porygon2, Tangrowth, and Cresselia, as well as Slowbro that lack a Fire-type move. Lucario works in a similar fashion, although it cannot defeat Cresselia. As an Outrage-spamming Pokemon, Magnezone is naturally a good teammate to remove opposing Steel-types. As for Slowbro and Gliscor, Rotom-W makes short work of both of them, while being a good "VoltTurn" partner for Flygon. Grass-types such as Celebi, Virizion, Rotom-C, and Shaymin also take them out without much trouble, although Virizion won't enjoy Thunder Wave or Toxic from Slowbro, nor do any of them enjoy taking Acrobatics from Flying Gem Gliscor. Latios and Hydreigon does not like getting paralyzed by Thunder Wave either, but they can easily switch into Slowbro and Gliscor to fire off deadly Draco Meteors.</p>

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>While this set may appear to be outclassed by Salamence, who boasts much higher attacking stats, Flygon has a few unique qualities that different itself from the big blue salamander. Firstly, Flygon resists Stealth Rock, which allows it to switch in more frequently than Salamence, while secondly, it is immune to Thunder Wave. The biggest reason to use Flygon, however, is the fact that physical walls that neglect their Special Defense are much more likely to switch into Flygon than Salamence, only to meet their doom. Salamence's high base 110 Special Attack would make Pokemon such as Gliscor and Slowbro more hesitant to switch in. Flygon's base 80, however, is completely off the radar. However, while it may appear low, Flygon's Special Attack is just enough to severely cripple the main physical walls in the tier; with a Life Orb and the combination of Draco Meteor and Fire Blast, Flygon is still OHKOing or 2HKOing most of them. Draco Meteor is the bread and butter of this set, as it easily puts Gliscor, Slowbro, Hippowdon, and Quagsire out of commision, and this allows another physical sweeper to sweep much more easily. Fire Blast OHKOs Skarmory and Ferrothorn while 2HKOing standard Bronzong. Earthquake is chosen over Earth Power because it hits Tyranitar and Specially Defensive Heatran and Jirachi harder than Earth Power does. U-turn is preferred in the last slot because it severely damages Celebi while retaining momentum. Roost can be used for recovery if you desire it, although Flygon's frailness makes it bit hard to pull off a successful Roost.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>Here are some damage calculations to illustrate Flygon's ability to remove physical walls:</p>

    <ul class=”damage_calculation”>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 0 SpD Gliscor: 84.18% - 99.44%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 0 SpD Slowbro: 71.83% - 84.77%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Hippowdon: 72.86% - 85.95%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Quagsire: 84.01% - 99.24%</li>
    <li>Fire Blast vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Skarmory: 108.38% - 127.54%</li>
    <li>Fire Blast vs 252 HP / 92 SpD Sassy Bronzong: 65.09% - 76.92%</li>
    </ul>

    <p>The EVs used allow Flygon to outspeed any Pokemon up to base 100 Speed that are not boosted. A Naive nature can be used instead, but the power lost is considerable, especially when low damage rolls could mean that Gliscor with Protect can avoid being 2HKOed by Draco Meteor. Outrage is another option to put in the last slot, as it's still a powerful STAB attack that could hurt, even from 237 Attack.</p>

    <p>Since this set is aiming to lure out and destroy physical walls, physical sweepers that appreciate their removal are good teammates to Flygon. Swords Dance Lucario, Terrakion, Dragonite, Salamence, Haxorus, Swords Dance Virizion, and Landorus can all sweep with much more confidence when physical walls are out of the way. Lucario gets a special mention since it resists Flygon's two weaknesses, while Landorus shares common switch-ins with Flygon, which means its counters are easily smoked out by Flygon.</p>

    <p>Specially bulky Pokemon that aren't frail physically are generally good switch-ins to mixed Flygon. Jellicent can easily take a Draco Meteor and Recover off any damage. Deoxys-D, Porygon2, and Chansey all have huge overall defenses which prevent Flygon from breaking through them. Due to this reason, Choice Band Tyranitar is an excellent teammate to Flygon because of its ability to checkmate all of the aforementioned threats. Gengar threatens all of them with its powerful Shadow Ball and Focus Blast, although it needs be careful to avoid switching into Jellicent's own Shadow Ball. Vaporeon can also take hits from Mixed Flygon without much problem, either, and use Wish to heal itself. Bulky Grass-types such as Virizion and Celebi can set up on Vaporeon quite easily. Toxic Spikes also makes life for those walls difficult. Forretress and Tentacruel can easily set up Toxic Spikes while resisting Flygon's Ice-type weakness, and in Forretress's case, Dragon-type weakness as well. Since Flygon is weak to both Ice- and Dragon-typed moves, bulky Water-types and Steel-types are useful teammates. Apart from Tentacruel, a Jellicent or Vaporeon of your own can absorb Ice-type attacks aimed at Flygon, while Steel-types such as Scizor, Metagross, and Bronzong are good at switching into Dragon-type attacks.</p>

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>Flygon's good Speed stat and excellent type coverage makes it a workable Choice Scarf user in OU. It is able to revenge kill many threats, such as Dragon Dance Dragonite and Haxorus, Choice Scarf Hydreigon; it also can Speed tie with +1 Volcarona or Salamence at the very worst. It still takes hardly anything from entry hazards, is immune to Thunder Wave, and can use U-turn to keep momentum. What sets Flygon apart from Landorus, the other Ground-type Choice Scarfer with U-turn, is its access to STAB Outrage. With its excellent pair of STABs, Flygon is possibly one of the most efficient late game cleaners in the game due to the number of Pokemon it can hit. It tends to force the opponent into hanging onto their more defensive Pokemon and lose offensive momentum. As such, Choice Scarf Flygon is useful in all stages of the match, as it can keep offensive momentum in the early game with U-turn, revenge kills threats mid-game, and clean up late game.</p>

    <p>Outrage and Earthquake are obviously Flygon's two excellent STAB attacks. U-turn allows Flygon to maintain momentum for the team and force switches to rack up entry hazard damage. Stone Edge is preferred in the last moveslot, as it allows Flygon to revenge kill Volcarona. However, if the fiery moth of no concern, Fire Blast can be used to give Skarmory a nasty surprise upon switch-in.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>ThunderPunch can be used in the final slot to revenge kill Gyarados, but is rather useless otherwise. Dragon Claw can also be used to avoid locking Flygon into Outrage, but Flygon is already very weak anyway, and really needs the power that Outrage provides. Although Flygon desperately needs power given by an Adamant nature, there are way too many Choice Scarf users that have between 448 and 492 Speed that Flygon can defeat, such as Haxorus, Hydreigon, and Kyurem. This is why only a Jolly nature is recommended.</p>

    <p>As a revenge killer, Flygon is pretty self-sufficient. However, there are Pokemon that can make its late-game cleaning job a lot easier. Since Flygon is very much on the weak side, it appreciates the weakening of bulky Pokemon so it can just swat them aside later. Removing Steel-types also helps its cause. This is why Magnezone is a fantastic teammate to Flygon. Not only does it resist both of Flygon's weaknesses, but it can also use its Magnet Pull ability to trap and remove Steel-types. Strong wall-breakers such as Choice Band Haxorus and Swords Dance Terrakion can also punch holes for Flygon to rampage through later. Also, since Flygon likes cleaning up in the late-game, Spikes can whittle opponents down into its KO range. With a layer of Spikes and Stealth Rock down, Pokemon such as Eviolite Chansey are much more nervous about switching into Flygon's Outrage. Ferrothorn is the premier Spiker of OU due to its excellent bulk and typing, and it also possesses good synergy with Flygon. Skarmory and Forretress are also good Spikes users. As for spinblockers to keep the Spikes down, Gengar is an excellent offensive spinblocker, while Jellicent, Sableye, Dusclops can fit onto bulkier teams. Choice Scarf Rotom is another good spinblocker who can also form a "Volt-turn" combo with Flygon.</p>

    [Other Options]

    <p>Screech Flygon was a decent set in DPP because of its ability to force switches. However, since the power creep of BW, this set isn't very viable any more, while U-turn forces switches anyway. Flygon can use Toxic, Earthquake, and Roost to try and stall, but its general frailty means it can't stall for very long, while its common counters, Gliscor and Skarmory, are immune to both Toxic and Earthquake. Flygon has access to Hone Claws as a boosting move, but every other Dragon-type in OU does a better job at boosting. Finally, Flygon is a rather interesting Shell Smash recipient. While it is relatively frail and doesn't resist any form of priority, its virtual immunity to hazards and Thunder Wave, as well as fantastic type coverage can make it hard to stop.</p>

    [Checks and Counters]

    <p>In general, if you want a full counter to Flygon, look no further than excessively bulky Pokemon such as Cresselia, Deoxys-D, Eviolite Chansey and Porygon2. Flygon's low attacking stats can never hope to break their thick hides. Bronzong, Skarmory, physically defensive Ferrothorn, and Forretress can take everything from Choice Band Flygon, although the latter three need to watch out for a well-timed Fire Blast. Bronzong can easily take Flygon out with Gyro Ball or Hidden Power Ice, while the other three can set up entry hazards at will. Physical walls such as Slowbro and Tangrowth can also switch into Choice Band Flygon and threaten with Scald and Giga Drain, respectively. However, both of them do not like being U-turned on. As for the mixed set, bulky Water-types with access to recovery, such as Jellicent, Vaporeon, and Milotic, can tank hits from Flygon all day, while threatening with nasty moves such as Scald, Ice Beam, or even a status move.</p>

    <p>Since Flygon is frail by this generation's standards, it is quite easy to take advantage of this and just hit Flygon very hard. Strong priority can take down Flygon very quickly. Ice Shard from Mamoswine and Weavile easily OHKO it, while Donphan can 2HKO with an Ice Shard of its own. Choice Band Scizor is easily chewing off over 65% of Flygon's health with Bullet Punch, while Choice Band Dragonite is doing a similar amount with ExtremeSpeed. Pokemon that are faster than Flygon can easily revenge kill it. Terrakion completely annihilates Flygon with Close Combat, Starmie can OHKO with Ice Beam, Landorus and Virizion with Hidden Power Ice, and Latios with any of its Dragon-type moves. Beware however, that Flygon may be using a Choice Scarf, so these Pokemon need a Choice Scarf of their own to outspeed Choice Scarf Flygon.</p>


    Good job, just know it's checks and counters now not just counters. Other than that good writing.

Physical walls such as Slowbro and Tangrowth can also switch into Choice Band Flygon and threaten with Scald and Giga Drain, respectively. However, both of them do not like being U-turned on. As for the mixed set, bulky Water-types with access to recovery, such as Jellicent, Vaporeon, and Milotic, can tank hits from Flygon all day, while threatening with nasty moves such as Scald, Ice Beam, or even a status move.</p>

    <p>Since Flygon is frail by this generation's standards, it is quite easy to take advantage of this and just hit Flygon very hard. Strong priority can take down Flygon very quickly. Ice Shard from Mamoswine and Weavile easily OHKO it, while Donphan can 2HKO with an Ice Shard of its own. Choice Band Scizor is easily chewing off over 65% of Flygon's health with Bullet Punch, while Choice Band Dragonite is doing a similar amount with ExtremeSpeed. Pokemon that are faster than Flygon can easily revenge kill it. Terrakion completely annihilates Flygon with Close Combat, Starmie can OHKO with Ice Beam, Landorus and Virizion with Hidden Power Ice, and Latios with any of its Dragon-type moves. Beware (comma) however, that Flygon may be using a Choice Scarf, so these Pokemon need a Choice Scarf of their own to outspeed Choice Scarf Flygon.</p> ​


    Coffee/Pastry (open)
    [Overview]

    <p>Flygon is probably one of the biggest victims of BW's power creep. With three new powerful OU or BL Dragon-types introduced, upgrades to Dragonite, and the demotion of Salamence, Latias, and Latios from Ubers, the competition was just far too great, and Flygon fell from very high OU in DPP to being a staple on BW UU teams. The introduction of Team Preview also made the "scouting" job redundant. However, this is not to mean that Flygon is bad in OU, as it still has its distinct advantages over the other Dragon-types. Its excellent offensive typing, Levitate granting virtual immunity to all hazards, immunity to Thunder Wave, and a decent Speed stat still make it very attractive in its own way. However, even with these fabulous toys, Flygon is still very much on the "weak" end of the OU spectrum, and needs to take full advantage of these toys; otherwise, you're better off using a better dragon.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Choice Band
    move 1: Outrage
    move 2: Earthquake
    move 3: U-turn
    move 4: Fire Blast / Stone Edge
    item: Choice Band
    nature: Adamant / Jolly
    evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>While Flygon's Attack stat of 100 is below average this generation, it can remedy this by slapping on a Choice Band, boosting it to more respectable levels. The upside of using Flygon is its fantastic offensive coverage, as between Outrage and Earthquake, Flygon hits 676 out of 680 of the total Pokemon for neutral or better damage. It doesn't end here, as Flygon can fully take advantage of its immunity to hazards to hold momentum with U-turn. Flygon's greatest advantage over its newfound rival Landorus is its access to Dragon STAB. Fire Blast is preferred in the final slot just so Skarmory thinks twice about switching in, as Fire Blast 2HKOs it in neutral weather. Note that apart from 2HKOing Skarmory, Fire Blast is very weak and is easily set up on. Stone Edge can be used in the final slot to attain "EdgeQuake" coverage and to net an OHKO on Volcarona.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>The EVs are as simple as you can get. Max Attack and Speed provide Flygon with maximum offensive potential. The nature is a bit more controversial, however, as Flygon really wants an Adamant nature to reach certain 2HKOs—such as Rocky Helmet Ferrothorn after one layer of Spikes damage. It also greatly appreciates any boost in power it can nab in general. However, a Jolly nature allows Flygon to take full advantage of its superior Speed when compared to the new dragons, and could potentially decide a game.</p>

    <p>Skarmory, physically defensive Ferrothorn, and Bronzong can take hits from Flygon all day, although the former two need rain to be able to cushion Fire Blast. Physically bulky walls, such as Slowbro, Gliscor, Tangrowth, Porygon2, and Cresselia, can take Flygon's attacks and retaliate reasonably well. It is for this reason that Swords Dance Scizor is an excellent teammate to Flygon. It can set up on Ferrothorn, Bronzong, Porygon2, Tangrowth, and Cresselia, as well as Slowbro that lack a Fire-type move. Lucario works in a similar fashion, although it cannot defeat Cresselia. As an Outrage-spamming Pokemon, Magnezone is naturally a good teammate to remove opposing Steel-types. As for Slowbro and Gliscor, Rotom-W makes short work of both of them, while being a good "VoltTurn" partner for Flygon. Grass-types such as Celebi, Virizion, Rotom-C, and Shaymin also take them out without much trouble, although Virizion won't enjoy Thunder Wave or Toxic from Slowbro, nor do any of them enjoy taking Acrobatics from Flying Gem Gliscor. Latios and Hydreigon do not enjoy getting paralyzed by Thunder Wave either, but they can easily switch into Slowbro and Gliscor to fire off deadly Draco Meteors.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Mixed Lure
    move 1: Draco Meteor
    move 2: Fire Blast
    move 3: Earthquake
    move 4: U-turn / Roost
    item: Life Orb
    nature: Rash / Naive
    evs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>While this set may appear to be outclassed by Salamence, who boasts much higher attacking stats, Flygon has a few unique qualities that distance itself from the big blue salamander. Firstly, Flygon resists Stealth Rock, which allows it to switch in more frequently than Salamence, while secondly, it is immune to Thunder Wave. The biggest reason to use Flygon, however, is the fact that physical walls that neglect their Special Defense are much more likely to switch into Flygon than Salamence, only to meet their doom. Salamence's high base 110 Special Attack would make Pokemon such as Gliscor and Slowbro more hesitant to switch in. Flygon's base 80, however, is completely off the radar. However, while it may appear low, Flygon's Special Attack is just enough to severely cripple the main physical walls in the tier; with a Life Orb and the combination of Draco Meteor and Fire Blast, Flygon is still OHKOing or 2HKOing most of them. Draco Meteor is the bread and butter of this set, as it easily puts Gliscor, Slowbro, Hippowdon, and Quagsire out of commission, and this allows another physical sweeper to sweep much more easily. Fire Blast OHKOs Skarmory and Ferrothorn while 2HKOing standard Bronzong. Earthquake is chosen over Earth Power because it hits Tyranitar, Specially Defensive Heatran, and Jirachi harder than Earth Power does. U-turn is preferred in the last slot because it severely damages Celebi while retaining momentum. Roost can be used for recovery if you desire it, although Flygon's frailness makes it bit hard to pull off a successful Roost.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>Here are some damage calculations to illustrate Flygon's ability to remove physical walls:</p>

    <ul class=”damage_calculation”>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 0 SpD Gliscor: 84.18% - 99.44%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 0 SpD Slowbro: 71.83% - 84.77%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Hippowdon: 72.86% - 85.95%</li>
    <li>Draco Meteor vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Quagsire: 84.01% - 99.24%</li>
    <li>Fire Blast vs 252 HP / 4 SpD Skarmory: 108.38% - 127.54%</li>
    <li>Fire Blast vs 252 HP / 92 SpD Sassy Bronzong: 65.09% - 76.92%</li>
    </ul>

    <p>The EVs used allow Flygon to outspeed any Pokemon up to base 100 Speed that are not boosted. A Naive nature can be used instead, but the power lost is considerable, especially when low damage rolls could mean that Gliscor with Protect can avoid being 2HKOed by Draco Meteor. Outrage is another option to put in the last slot, as it's still a powerful STAB attack that could hurt, even from 237 Attack.</p>

    <p>Because this set is aiming to lure out and destroy physical walls, sweepers that appreciate their removal are good teammates for Flygon. Swords Dance Lucario, Terrakion, Dragonite, Salamence, Haxorus, Swords Dance Virizion, and Landorus can all sweep with much more confidence when physical walls are out of the way. Lucario gets a special mention because it resists Flygon's two weaknesses, while Landorus shares common switch-ins with Flygon, which means its counters are easily smoked out by Flygon.</p>

    <p>Specially bulky Pokemon that aren't physically frail are generally good switch-ins to mixed Flygon. Jellicent can easily take a Draco Meteor and Recover off any damage. Deoxys-D, Porygon2, and Chansey all have huge overall defenses which prevent Flygon from breaking through them. Due to this, Choice Band Tyranitar is an excellent teammate for Flygon because of its ability to check all of the aforementioned threats. Gengar threatens all of them with its powerful Shadow Ball and Focus Blast, although it needs be careful to avoid switching into Jellicent's own Shadow Ball. Vaporeon can also take hits from Mixed Flygon without much problem and use Wish to heal itself. Bulky Grass-types such as Virizion and Celebi can set up on Vaporeon quite easily. Toxic Spikes also makes life for those walls difficult. Forretress and Tentacruel can easily set up Toxic Spikes while resisting Flygon's Ice-type weakness, and in Forretress's case, Dragon-type weakness as well. Since Flygon is weak to both Ice- and Dragon-type moves, bulky Water- and Steel-types are useful teammates. Apart from Tentacruel, a Jellicent or Vaporeon of your own can absorb Ice-type attacks aimed at Flygon, while Steel-types such as Scizor, Metagross, and Bronzong are good at switching into Dragon-type attacks.</p>

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>Flygon's good Speed stat and excellent type coverage makes it a workable Choice Scarf user in OU. It is able to revenge kill many threats, such as Dragon Dance Dragonite and Haxorus, and Choice Scarf Hydreigon; it also can Speed tie with +1 Volcarona or Salamence at the very worst. It still takes hardly anything from entry hazards, is immune to Thunder Wave, and can use U-turn to keep momentum. What sets Flygon apart from Landorus, the other Ground-type Choice Scarfer with U-turn, is its access to STAB Outrage. With its excellent pair of STABs, Flygon is possibly one of the most efficient late-game cleaners in the game due to the number of Pokemon it can hit. It tends to force the opponent into hanging onto their more defensive Pokemon and lose offensive momentum. As such, Choice Scarf Flygon is useful in all stages of the match, as it can keep offensive momentum in the early-game with U-turn, revenge kill threats mid-game, and clean up late-game.</p>

    <p>Outrage and Earthquake are obviously Flygon's two excellent STAB attacks. U-turn allows Flygon to maintain momentum for the team and force switches to rack up entry hazard damage. Stone Edge is preferred in the last moveslot, as it allows Flygon to revenge kill Volcarona. However, if the fiery moth of no concern, Fire Blast can be used to give Skarmory a nasty surprise upon switch-in.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>ThunderPunch can be used in the final slot to revenge kill Gyarados, but is rather useless otherwise. Dragon Claw can also be used to avoid locking Flygon into Outrage, but Flygon is already very weak and really needs the power that Outrage provides. Although Flygon desperately needs power given by an Adamant nature, there are way too many Choice Scarf users that have between 448 and 492 Speed that Flygon can defeat, such as Haxorus, Hydreigon, and Kyurem. This is why only a Jolly nature is recommended.</p>

    <p>As a revenge killer, Flygon is pretty self-sufficient. However, there are Pokemon that can make its late-game cleaning job a lot easier. As Flygon is very much on the weak side, it appreciates the weakening of bulky Pokemon so it can just swat them aside later. Removing Steel-types also helps its cause, making Magnezone a fantastic teammate to Flygon. Not only does it resist both of Flygon's weaknesses, but it can also use its Magnet Pull ability to trap and remove Steel-types. Strong wall-breakers such as Choice Band Haxorus and Swords Dance Terrakion can also punch holes for Flygon to rampage through later. Flygon likes cleaning up in the late-game, so Spikes can whittle opponents down into its KO range. With a layer of Spikes and Stealth Rock down, Pokemon such as Eviolite Chansey are much more nervous about switching into Flygon's Outrage. Ferrothorn is the premier Spiker of OU due to its excellent bulk and typing, and it also possesses good synergy with Flygon. Skarmory and Forretress are also good Spikes users. As for spinblockers to keep the Spikes down, Gengar is an excellent offensive spinblocker, while Jellicent, Sableye, Dusclops can fit onto bulkier teams. Choice Scarf Rotom is another good spinblocker who can also form a "VoltTurn" combo with Flygon.</p>

    [Other Options]

    <p>Screech Flygon was a decent set in DPP because of its ability to force switches. However, since the power creep of BW, this set isn't very viable any more, while U-turn forces switches anyway. Flygon can use Toxic, Earthquake, and Roost to try and stall, but its general frailty means it can't stall for very long, while its common counters, Gliscor and Skarmory, are immune to both Toxic and Earthquake. Flygon has access to Hone Claws as a boosting move, but every other Dragon-type in OU does a better job at boosting. Finally, Flygon is a rather interesting Shell Smash recipient. While it is relatively frail and doesn't resist any form of priority, its virtual immunity to hazards and Thunder Wave, as well as fantastic type coverage, can make it hard to stop.</p>

    [Checks and Counters]

    <p>In general, if you want a full counter to Flygon, look no further than excessively bulky Pokemon such as Cresselia, Deoxys-D, Eviolite Chansey and Porygon2. Flygon's low attacking stats can never hope to break their thick hides. Bronzong, Skarmory, physically defensive Ferrothorn, and Forretress can take everything from Choice Band Flygon, although the latter three need to watch out for a well-timed Fire Blast. Bronzong can easily take Flygon out with Gyro Ball or Hidden Power Ice, while the other three can set up entry hazards at will. Physical walls such as Slowbro and Tangrowth can also switch into Choice Band Flygon and threaten with Scald and Giga Drain, respectively. However, both of them do not like being U-turned on. As for the mixed set, bulky Water-types with access to recovery, such as Jellicent, Vaporeon, and Milotic, can tank hits from Flygon all day, while threatening with nasty moves such as Scald, Ice Beam, or even a status move.</p>

    <p>Since Flygon is frail by this generation's standards, it is quite easy to take advantage of this and just hit Flygon very hard. Strong priority can take down Flygon very quickly. Ice Shard from Mamoswine and Weavile easily OHKO it, while Donphan can 2HKO with an Ice Shard of its own. Choice Band Scizor is easily chewing off over 65% of Flygon's health with Bullet Punch, while Choice Band Dragonite is doing a similar amount with ExtremeSpeed. Pokemon that are faster than Flygon can easily revenge kill it. Terrakion completely annihilates Flygon with Close Combat, Starmie can OHKO with Ice Beam, Landorus and Virizion with Hidden Power Ice, and Latios with any of its Dragon-type moves. Beware, however, that Flygon may be using a Choice Scarf, so these Pokemon need a Choice Scarf of their own to outspeed Flygon.</p>​
