Volcarona @ Coba Berry
Trait: Flame Body
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Quiver Dance
- Fire Blast
- Bug Buzz
- Hidden Power [Rock]

This is a set i just thought of, the Coba Berry is to stop Talonflame from ruining your fun and beat it with HP Rock then you can continue your sweep

Here are some calcs:

252+ Atk Talonflame Brave Bird vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Coba Berry Volcarona: 223-264 (71.4 - 84.6%) Guaranteed OHKO with Stealth Rock

252 SpA Volcarona Hidden Power Rock vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Talonflame: 364-432 (101.1 - 120%) Guaranteed OHKO

With some Defog support this could work, you can also add more defensive evs to take Brave Birds better.

What's Volcarona doing in against a Talonflame anyway? Yeah, HP Rock has surprise value against one would-be counter but you've taken away one of its best tools, Roost, for it.

This set is meant to be late game sweeper and HP Rock can also beat other Volcarona and flying types.

Hurricane or Giga Drain (unavailable) if it's Timid or Modest.

You really should only be running Roost if it's Bold
