Flygon for sure. I don't know it's exact learnset in Ruby, but I think it learns Dragon Claw and Earthquake, which are both excellent physcial stab moves.
And fyi, Flygon's a Ground/Dragon type, who happens to have levitate. ;)

It can learn fly - Therefore I classify it as a flying pokémon ^^

I swear it was Dragon/Flying - Ohwell..

Really? Well, I remember Fire Punch was special, so maybe. :p
In-game is so easy, you can choose any one you want as long as it balances in your team.

I am pretty sure Dragon was special, making Dragon Dance crap, apart from gaining speed.

I personally think Skarmory is the best of these three.

I'd say Altaria, it can learn Earthquake, witch is good when battling an electric type like Pikachu. I know because in R/S/E one of the gym leaders uses Altaria, and it defeated my Pikachu with Earthquake.

skarmory is an uber physical wall, flygon is not a flying type and altarlia is outclassed by salamance and dragonite,so skarmory gets my vote.

Well, I found a Sawblu today and captured it, no sense in letting it waste in my box like my Makuhita and the like.

So I'm currently using Swablu ^^

Swabber the Swablu :D

I think I also go to Altaria, the defensive and attacks are good.
Regarding Flygon, it is good too, especially because it is both Dragon/Ground type.

I would highly suggest Altaria or Flygon, although if you are looking for a decent dragon in Ruby or Saphire, I would highly suggest looking at a Salamence.

Offensively speaking Flygon is strictly the best, but strategically speaking Skarmory will be better as a team supporter and putting out Spikes. Altaria is totally useless, don't bother. It just breeds Dragon Dance to stuff.
