what? no! Stealth rocks, whether you like it or not, is a defining force of this meta. 50% every switch in with rocks in play is bad. Even if no rocks, its still not uber material. The best set, the bulky one, has only a fire and a bug move. Rock types wall it completely (most notably terrakion, and if it has scarf +1)

Situation - it has a couple quiver dances up

Response - Use a bulky water, rock type, or other wall.

More checks - Aqua jet, Gyarados, Dragonite, Salamence, Heatran, and Terrakion, and Rain (unless rain abuser set) and sand.

Personally, the most broken thing in today's meta is dragonite; even that isn't worthy of a ban. is the meta balanced? no, we still have DW stuff to come in. Volca is absolutely not broken; its just people who get swept by it too easily complaining.

To an above poster;

Volcarona@ Chesto Berry
- Quiver Dance
- Fire Blast
- bug Buzz
- Rest

is an OK set, but the one that works best imo as a late game cleaner (should be volca's main job) is

Volcarona@ leftovers
252 Def 252 HP 4 Spe
- Quiver Dance
- Fiery Dance
- bug Buzz
- Morning Sun

Enough bulk to recover like 75% of its HP in sun, and can be the perfect cleaner.
Legitness doesn't come easy. You must be a turtle with epicness flowing from your veins...but u must not have veins, BUT SOMEHOW IT STILL WORKS
