    Hydreigon & Draco Meteor

    I don't believe removing Draco Meteor is the right way to go. Firstly the most prominent switch in for Hydreigon is Mantine, which walls Hydreigon with ease. 252 SpA Life Orb Hydreigon Draco Meteor over 2 turns vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Mantine: 162-190 (84.3 - 98.9%) -- not a KO. I'm aware that there are some gimmicky sets that run electric moves or Taunt/Roost that would beat Mantine but these are options already available to Hydreigon, the addition of Draco Meteor wouldn't suddenly make this Hydreigon set OP. Presuming this patch gives both Draco Meteor and Eviolite means Hydreigon would have another hard counter in Chansey. 0 Atk Life Orb Hydreigon Superpower over 2 turns vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Chansey: 266-314 (74.5 - 87.9%) -- not a KO. 236+ Atk Life Orb Hydreigon Superpower over 2 turns vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Chansey: 362-427 (101.4 - 119.6%) -- guaranteed KO in 2 turns. If you decided to run this much attack you would either be dropping speed or special attack, both of which would be making Draco Meteor much less threatening. In my opinion the Taunt set would be the way to go with beating this Pokemon. The point I am trying to make here is either Hydreigon won't break through these two popular picks in OU without dropping Draco Meteor from its move set (or severely limiting the use of Draco Meteor) because the taunt set really dislikes lowering its special attack, thus it would not even use Draco Meteor. Even switching a steel type into Draco Meteor can provide you with momentum because of its resistance. In regards to an offensive match up, sure Hydreigon will be getting many kills with Draco Meteor alone but this does not make it overpowered, after using this move your opponent is provided a swing turn to setup something like a swords dance, which could outright beat you if you're not prepared.
