Defog! I like Flash personally, I love tricky moves like that which reduce accuracy and it lets Pokémon like Magnemite etc that can't learn Sand-Attack get some more tactical moves. Obviously Flash is banned in competitive battling though, so when it comes to competitive I'll definitely say Surf. It's the only HM that really gets used in competitive battling other than sometimes Waterfall and there's a good reason for this haha. It's mostly just that the other HMs are outclassed by other moves; Strength has Return, Rock Smash has Brick Break, Fly has one-turn attacks like Drill Peck, etc. It's not that the HM moves are necessarily bad (other than Rock Smash ;p) but they just don't really warrant usage over other moves.
