Volcarona is causing you problems due to you having 3 fire weaknesses (one of which is also 4x weak to bug) and a bug weakness, with very little to remedy the problem.

Now onto the team itself. I don't use weather but I will try my best to give you some advice from battles I've had against Weather teams.

First of all I'd ditch Bronzong, or at least get rid of Trick Room. Either way I'd get rid of either Bronzong or Metagross (or both?) as they share the exact same weaknesses. In place of either one I'd suggest Gastrodon. Nidoking and Tyranitar are both weak to water and you have no pokemon barring Celebi who can take a strong water hit. With Storm Drain Gastrodon becomes your best friend, and fits with Celebi well as its only weakness is grass which Celebi resists, and Celebi is weak to fire which Gastrodon resists.

The set for Gastrodon is optional, since you could run a defensive set or a Specially offensive set.


I'd actually suggest using Heatran if you're struggling with Volcarona. Heatran walls almost ALL Volcarona sets barring the rare HP Ground/Water and can phaze any stats boosts with Roar.

Heatran@Leftovers
Flash Fire
Calm Nature
248 HP / 8Def / 252 SDef

- Lava Plume
- Roar
- Protect
- Stealth Rock/Toxic/Will-o-Wisp

Stealth Rock if you decide to get rid of Bronzong, Toxic/WoW if you decide to replace something else with Heatran. With Gastrodon and Celebi you two pokemon who can deal with ground types effectively. Alternatively you could try Terrakion, as you are low on the physical aspect should you choose to replace Metagross.


Essentially you have a load of choices to pick from. The top of those in my opinion are the three I mentioned though, although how you'd fit them all in I don't know at the moment =/
