Who can counter Volcarona(other than Stealth Rock)?

I'm having a hard time trying to take down Volcarona, I think I run into mostly Bulky Quiver Dance sets(EV'd in Defense). What can easily take it out? I might just teach my TTar Stone Edge or Rock Slide for the x4 weakness...

What on earth is your Ttar doing not knowing either of those moves?

I could suggest any number of rock pokemon, but that's probably the simplest bet.

Aurorus's counterpart comes to mind.

Ttar without Stone edge or rock slide? What moveset are you running!? Anyways bad thing is Volcarona is extremely likely to OHKO you with Bug buzz (if it's +1) unless you run assault vest and there's a sandstorm out

Someone that can eat a boosted Quiver Dance'd Fire Blast or Bug Buzz and live, and is physically inclined.

TTar @ Assault Vest in the sand might survive a Bug Buzz, but i highly doubt it can OHKO. Plus there's switching and whatnot... >_>

Edit: IF, somehow, Volcy and Azumarill are out on the field together, there's a chance Volcy will QD and you Belly Drum; Aqua Jet off 1700+ attack shouls be more than enough. Then again, any decent Volcarona user will not do that...

Azumarill resists both STABS, bug and fire, and can hit back with water type moves.
Not sure if that makes it a counter.

My TTar is a Special Wall that knows Ice Beam(in case of Dragons, but I haven't ran into one yet). I might give it one of those moves though, I'm not sure which one though. The set is:

Tyrantar @ Assault Vest
Ice Beam

EDIT: Assault Vest TTar survives four hits of Bug Buzz under Sandstorm. Its less if boosted and Sandstorm is gone.

I typically use something with T-wave or trick + choice item to cripple any pokemon I didn't plan for. Chandelure resists both it's STABs if you don't want to go with that route though.

Talonflame, if you like overused things that everyone is sick of seeing.
STAB Quick Attack. Staraptor.

Specially Defensive w/ Assault Vest Tyranitar, Heatran (if not carrying HP Ground), Blissey (T-Wave/Seismo Toss cripple/kill it), Mega Charizard X, Talonflame (gotta be a little careful, but it can come in and immediately threaten it with priority BBird), Moltres, Azumarill, Kingdra (needs Swift Swim), Specially Defensive Gyarados/Mega Gyarados.

Off the top of my head.
