PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Dragon Tail or Mud Shot + Dragon Claw and Scorching Sands or Stone Edge

Dragon Tail is a solid choice after the buffs from the GBL Season 8 update, with strong STAB damage output and average energy gains. Mud Shot provides very fast energy gains to help Flygon spam its powerful charge moves, but has very poor damage output. 

Dragon Claw sees a lot of use on Flygon, which is often used to apply heavy shield pressure and bait shields. Though its base power of 50 and 1.4 DPE (Damage Per Energy) isn't anything spectacular, the frequency of which it can be used is noticeable. Dragon-type opponents also dislike being abused by constant Dragon Claw spam. 

Scorching Sands has a very respectable DPE (Damage per Energy), a relatively low energy cost, and a solid chance to drop the target's Attack on use, making it an optimal choice. Earthquake has the potential to deal huge damage to the opponent if it's unshielded (and if the opponent doesn't fly), making it also worth considering. Stone Edge adds coverage to Flygon and helps deal with its double weakness to Ice-type Pokemon, in addition to common Flying-types. 

Earth Power, Flygon's Community Day special move, has a DPE very similar to Scorching Sands but with higher energy cost and low odds of cutting the target's Defense, making it the lesser option in most cases.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2.5 / 5

Flygon competes with other Ground-type and Dragon-type Pokemon in Great League, but due to its offensive stat distribution, falls significantly behind in bulk with a 1500 CP cap. Flygon makes up for this by being one of the fastest spammers in the game, applying heavy shield pressure thanks to the massive energy generation from Mud Shot and low energy cost Dragon Claws. Relatively quick access to the powerful Earthquake and Stone Edge moves enables Flygon to threaten numerous Pokemon with a potential KO if unshielded. Thanks to its moveset, Flygon is one of the best Pokemon at baiting or forcing shields, and almost always leaves a bruise on its opponent before going down. Just keep this guy away from Ice-types. 

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5

Flygon moves up in the ranks in Ultra League thanks to a higher CP cap. Just like in Great League, Flygon's main role is applying heavy shield pressure with Dragon Claw spam, and threatening fast Earthquakes or Stone Edges. Flygon still has a big issue with Ice-types in this league, and also loses to the big names like Giratina, Lugia, Dialga, and Cresselia, but not without putting up a fight. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Master League paves the way for a lot of legendary Pokemon due to their high stats, which leaves Flygon somewhat behind.
