If you're not patient enough to have Volcarona learn Fiery Dance (it learns the move at level 100), then go with Fire Blast. It has more power than Fiery Dance and Flamethrower; its accuracy is more acceptable than Blizzard, Thunder or the like.
Oh well. I guess I'll go with Fire Blast then. Saves a lot of complications, too.

I need help beating clay in W2. My team is all level 31 except for my ducklett who is 33. On my first try, I took out Crokorock no problem. Then I switched to my pignnite to take on excadrill but he 1 hit KOed it and the rest of my team. Any advice?

Having a Water Pokemon with you helps against Clay. The best ones available at this point of the game are Psyduck, Huge Power Azumarill (obtained as Azurill in Flocessy Ranch) and Ducklett.

Yes, a Pokemon holding the Exp. Share still gets EVs.

If you have the poke. In join avenue you can train it to level 100. In the training dojos in there you can level up a pokemon up to 10 levels per day per dojo at the cost of 90k poke per day per dojo.

I am using ducklett but because it is part flying his Excadrill sweeps me. Same with pignite except he is fire. So should I just level some more or what?

Just level the team some more. Evolve Pignite if you have to.

If you're using Ducklett you'll need to evolve it by reaching level 35. Swanna is faster than Excadrill and with a more powerful super-effective Water-type STAB you should have a better chance to faint it. Otherwise I'd select a Fighting, Ground or pure Water type that isn't weak to Excadrill's moves. Even Drilbur has a fairly good chance to beat it.

Yeah I tried using my excadrill and he 1 hit KO'd it as well. I guess I will just murder audinos for a while and try again.

IV breeding is FAR better than just capturing stuff and selecting the one with the right nature. That's because chances are the stuff you capture has crappy IVs anyway. If you can't RNG and don't want to trade, IV breed. But the answer is generally yes.

So i just bred a Timid Deino just a few days ago(It's now a Hydreigon), I was thinking of a powerhouse with decent speed, since it lacks power due to its nature what's a good item for him? Choice Specs or Life Orb?

Actually both items are good for Hydreigon!
While Choice Specs locks to one move until you switch it out.
On the other hand, Life Orb has recoil and you might want to make it learn Roost by a move tutor in Humilau.

Is your Hydregion a special attacker or a mixed attacker? If special, then I would recommend Choice Specs. Choice Specs raises your Special Attack stat by fifty-percent, which is a lot. If it's a mixed attacker, then Life Orb would be the best option. This item is able to power-up all of your moves, not just the special ones. Another item that you could give to your Hydregion is Expert Belt. This would increase your attack's damage by twenty-percent if your opponent is super-effective to it. Plus, it has no bad side effects at all!

Generally, Modest is the preferred nature on Hydreigon because 98 Speed, while good, isn't really the best. Also, a Timid nature makes a mixed set moot, so you're better off with a Sub + 3 attacks/Sub + 2 attacks + Roost set or a Choice Specs set. For Sub, use Leftovers if running 3 attacks or Life Orb if running 2 attacks and Roost.

My Hydreigon is a special attacker and it is specially defensive(got a good IV in SpDef), thanks for the suggestions!

Go for Blizzard. It's your only alternative for an Ice move at this point of the game; you don't even get the Ice Beam TM till you get to the Giant Chasm. If you have any Pokemon with you that can learn Ice Punch, pay 10 Red Shards to the move tutor in Driftveil City. If all else fails, go catch your own Axew in Mistralton Cave.

Okay. I was thinking about getting an axew and then just spreading a few dark type moves throughout my team to compensate for not getting absol.

I want to make a Ludicolo, but can't decide on a attacking Swift Swim, or a Defensive Rain Dish Ludicolo. It would be for Battle Tower, PWT, or online battles. They both look pretty easy to make, just need to pick one.

Both are equally good, but I'd suggest a Swift Swim Ludicolo because rain helps compensate for Ludicolo's average Special Attack:
-Rain Dance
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Giga Drain
-Ice Beam/Focus Blast
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Damp Rock/Life Orb
Ability: Swift Swim

Both of these are great sets. I've used both of them myself, and they're very fun to use. (: Anyway, do you already have a sweeper on your team? If you do, then I think you should probably go with the Rain Dish moveset. With Rain Dish, you'll be able to stall your opponent for an extremely long amount of time. And if you don't have a sweeper, then you should go with its Swift Swim set. Swift Swim doubles its speed, and after only a Swords Dance, it would be able to take out nearly all of your opponent's Pokémon single-handedly.

My question regards EV training.

I'm going to stop at Gamestop tomorrow to get the shiny Palkia.

Is it possible to EV train a level 100 Pokemon that has never been in a battle and how?

Yes it's possible to EV train a level 100 Pokemon in Gen V, just like any other lower leveled Pokemon.
