    @Dark Blueberry;

    Firstly they need rocks to not be up which is a problem in itself and then they have to worry about a Draco Meteor which, with Life orb equipped, has an 87.5% chance to 1HKO without Stealth Rocks and will kill with any prior damage.

    Okay. Seriously. This isn't even funny. NOBODY CAN KILL HYDREIGON. THE END.

    DRAGONS ARE OVERPOWERED AND OVERHYPED.

    Loads of stuff can beat it. Just nothing can switch in with complete safety. There are loads of things with that property.

    Which means it can be checked, but not countered. As I said before, Hydreigon is not unbeatable.

    So it sounds like a good strategy is to have a "whipping boy" sacrifice Pokemon in your team to switch in?
    Seems to me, though, it would be wasting valuable space to reserve a spot for a Pokemon just meant for being knocked out. I've been guilty of sending out a Pokemon to be killed while I heal up my other team members (if it has a high defense) or to prevent the switch-in turn penalty (if I know that it will be OHKO'd regardless of what I do), and it always makes me feel terrible =/ However, that Pokemon is usually unsuited for the particular battle but is valuable in other battle situations, so all of my team members are usually the whipping boy at some point.

    This is what my aggron is for; usually any Hydreigon (or any dragon for that matter) I fight usually tries to sweep with outrage.

    Switch in Aggron, rock head, rinse and repeat.

    @metalamor; No, the way the fifth generation is playing out, everybody has to play offensively bcause stall is bad and make strategic sacrifices that allow them to still win.
    @Elesa Ver 2.0; Shame Aggron is bad and bordering on unusable. They can just use any fire/water/fighting coverage move and either 1HKO you or outspeed and 2HKo.

    I remember when everyone thought Aggron was the coolest thing ever (at least everyone I knew)...
    I stuck by Tyranitar.
    Tyranitar is still in OU.
    I win :D

    Well of course it's OU. Tyranitar is a monster. Me, I liked them both, but TTar is better.

    Back to the subject of Hydreigon. The way the metagame works is that everyone in your party has a job to do. For example, Pokemon like Dragonite, Hydreigon and Latios are often used for sweeping, Pokemon like Ninetales, Politoed, Tyranitar and Abomasnow's main function is to summon permanent weather, while Pokemon like Ferrothorn are there mainly to put out hazards.

    Why is this important to the overall subject? Because once a Pokemon is done with their job, they can become sacrifice bait. If Forretress already spun away the enemy's harzards and set up Stealth Rocks, he has fullfilled his duties and can then be sacrificed to bring in another Pokemon (like say, Technician Breloom with Mach Punch against Hydreigon, to give an example.) That's not to say that a Pokemon becomes useless once their job is done (I lost count of the number of matches I won because of my Ninetales) but they're no longer a necessity. It's these kinds of Pokemon that you can use as sacrifices in order to bring in your Hydreigon check.

    It has Sturdy, Automize, Rock Polish, Air Balloon, and Focus Sash to help it; you just need to kill off your opponent's Pokemon who's a prone threat to Aggron before you send it.

    As for Hydreigon, you have to pray that the one you're facing in Random Matchups has poor IVs on the defensive side in order to fully rid of it with a SE move. Otherwise, you're screwed if your next Pokemon's not fast enough.

    Is there anyway a non-dragon team can ever survive against those overpowered dragons?

    Indeed, but it is very difficult. You would have to have an impressive strategy.
