I ask because with my old team, I was able to beat it with my Sesmitoad with surf. But when I did him again, it actually BEAT me. and I'm WATER! It's always beaten my Semsitoad mostly because of speed and stuff and I always have to switch to Emboar to finish the job.

For me new team, I don't want a repeat of what happens to my water Pokemon. So I won't bring out Jellicent but rather Hydreigon since I was able to beat Cheren's Haxous with her because she was faster. But I want to know if Hydreigon's speed is better than Volcarona's. If it is.. then I have a better chance of OHKOing it.
Hydreigon has a base speed of 98, while Volcarona has a base speed of 100. Have you been EV training your Hydreigon in speed, or just treating him like a normal Pokemon? I'm not quite sure how trainer EVs work, but I suspect that if you have it EV trained in speed it will go first despite the 2 point difference.

Are all men stupid?

That's right.
