Manetric
Timid/Modest
Lightningrod
Electric gem/ Focus Sash
Move set
Thunderbolt/Charge Beam
Flamethrower
Thunder Wave
Protect

You can put thunderbolt as your electric move or charge beam if you want to play charge beam manetric
Flamethrower for killing grass type or ice type Pokemon
Thunder Wave to Paralyze opponent
Protect so you know what move will your opponent use.

Signal beam is not a powerful move so I replace with thunder wave instead

You can use this set or use your normal set, but I recommend to change your item.

First of all, expert belts aren't that great. The only 'mon they're useful on is Electivire, who has coverage on 16/17 types. I'll give a full rate after you switch items around.

For blaziken, I think sky uppercut is better than hi jump kick because if you use hi jump kick, but it miss then you loose half of your hp, especially when your opponent predict and change to ghost type Pokemon you will still loose hp for nothing. Blaze kick is a lot better than fire punch, it has high critical hit ratio, can burn Pokemon like fire punch and has more power.
I think bulk up is also a good idea if you want to replace with shadow claw.
Life orb is a recommend item for blaziken

Replace Shadow Claw on Absol with Stone Edge. Ghost shares the same coverage as Dark anyway, and Stone Edge also has high crit ratio.
For Blaziken, HJK is good, but Sky Uppercut has less risk.


The rest are fine.

Oh man, I can't believe I forgot about this. >>'

Um, so, I made some changes to the moves and replaced the Absol.

Flygon
Item Choice Band/Choice Scraf/Life Orb
Nature Adamant/Jolly
Ability Levitate
Move Set
Dragon Claw
Fire Punch
Earthquake
Stone Edge/Aerial Ace
Dragon Claw has a good STAB move for Flygon
Fire Punch for killing Grass type Pokemon and Levitate Steel type Pokemon
Earthquake is a powerful move for Flygon, also it has STAB
Stone Edge made a good QuakeEdge combo, which has a very good coverage, I wouldn't put Fly because it make your opponent easy to predict and change Pokemon that resist to Flying type, if you are sticking with Flying type move, then you should put Aerial Ace instead

Good luck with your Flygon
