Nobody has yet mentioned Quick Attack, but it's not a bad move at all on Flygon, especially with set up.

Flygon can do special too. Earth Power is reliable STAB, Fire Blast is support against Skarmory, Bronzong, and balloon Metagross. Draco Meteor is your high power move, and Dragonbreath is a neat support move that is in my opinion underrated, with its really nice paralyzing chance. Most foes won't expect being paralyzed by a Flygon at all, so it has a nice surprise factor. Besides you already have your other moves covering the higher power needs.
-Giga Drain isn't powerful, but it carries surprise to any water type thinking they can switch in and Ice Beam you down. Apart from Swampert and Quagsire it barely hits harder than Earth Power though
-Iron Tail is a powerful move, yet not one that Flygon really needs. Steel just doesn't have any super effective coverage addition to its conventional moves and neutral coverage is not something that Flygon lacks
-Mimic is just cool to have in your movepool, but generally not useful in a moveset.
-Roost can be used to recover health
-Sand Tomb can trap foes. It's not really good as it takes a turn to use before the opponent is trapped, but it isn't bad at all, especially on unconventional sets that require different counters from the generic set.
-Stone Edge can be useful in combination with Hone Claws to kill flying types
-Tailwind can be used as support.
Flygon may not be the best pokémon in the world, but it is unique and it is quite good. It also boasts a very large movepool for the UU tier, and it can be quite unpredictable due to all the things it can do. It can support, attack physically, attack special side, and it has quite a bit of resistances. It works well in doubles due to its immunity to Discharge and Earthquake, its resistance to Heat Wave and Rock Slide, and it has its own Heat Wave and Earthquake as well. It also resists Stealth Rock, is immune to Spikes and Toxic Spikes, and it works well in both sun and sand. Flygon is really cool.

Master balls are the cheapest thing ever invented. It's more fun catching everything with balls that can fail. 'caught Latios in the wild without master ball ftw'
