Hydreigon is a part of the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. As one of the tier's most prominent threats, Hydreigon's high base Special Attack allows it to stand out as a threat in the tier, while its typing gives it good neutral STAB coverage against the majority of the tier excluding Fairy-types. Hydreigon's typing also allows it to have numerous switch-in opportunities, and when considering Levitate, it has two immunities and some great resistances. It has a great overall movepool that consists of coverage moves like Fire Blast, Superpower, and U-turn to complement Hydreigon's great STAB attacks in Dark Pulse and Draco Meteor. Its best sets are a wallbreaker Life Orb set that can heavily damage defensive and offensive teams alike, while a Choice Scarf set allows for Hydreigon to be a great pivot and revenge killer, and a stallbreaker set with Taunt and Roost to wear down at certain specially defensive Pokémon like Blissey and Umbreon. Hydreigon's biggest flaws are its common weaknesses to Fighting and Bug attacks alongside its base 98 Speed, which while far from terrible, is not fast enough to outpace many threats in the tier, which can cause Hydreigon to have some trouble against more offensively inclined teams.
Hydreigon is also a viable option in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. With a great Special Attack stat, good STAB combination, and nice coverage moves, Hydreigon makes for a decent wallbreaker in OU. Its typing and bulk allows it to switch into numerous defensive Pokémon like Slowbro, Mega Venusaur, and Rotom-W, which makes it a hard Pokémon to deal with when using a balanced team. Levitate is a great ability that prevents Hydreigon from taking too much damage from entry hazards while granting it an immunity to Ground-type attacks. Hydreigon's best set is a Life Orb wallbreaker set that can become very difficult to wall with great overall coverage to hammer down at defensive cores, while a Choice Scarf set is also viable as a pivot with U-turn and decent revenge killing prowess. Despite all these great traits, Hydreigon is in a Speed tier that leaves it outsped by many threats like Weavile, Keldeo, and Mega Diancie. It also struggles to get past certain Fairy-types like Azumarill and Clefable which can lead to it becoming set-up bait at times.
