Two completely different Pokemon but I think volcarona because of its outstanding Bug Buzz and Heat Wave.

It also has some immunity to fire because it is part fire itself which protects its bug half but wishcash also has compleate immunity to electric and can deal a lot of damage with earthquake and hydro pump.

This is my opinion but if someone else comes up with something probably listen to them because I'm not that good at this thing.

Strange Pokemon to pick for a comparison, but hmm okay.

Volcarona = completely worth your time. Come rain, wind or shine, Volcarona will be a good weather sweeper. While Hurricane isn't STAB for Volcarona, it's a good idea to have something to deal with Venusaur if you're ever facing a sun team.

Rain set:
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Flame Body
EVs: 252 HP, 200 Def, 56 Speed
Nature: Bold
- Quiver Dance
- Hurricane
- Bug Buzz
- Fiery Dance/ Substitute

Multi-use set:
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Flame Body
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
- Quiver Dance
- Bug Buzz
- Fiery Dance
- Giga Drain/ Roost/ HP Rock

You can only get 1 in-game. That's a testimony to how good it is; they had to limit how many you could get.


Whiscash has pretty mediocre stats, but it does have high HP. This can allow it to set up a few Dragon Dances, and then sweep effectively. However, its common typing means that it faces competitive with Gastrodon, Quagsire and Swampert, all having a x4 Grass weakness.

Still, if it can get enough DDs, it'll be able to deal with Grass types.

Whiscash @ Leftovers/ Life Orb
Ability: Hydration
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Waterfall

Judging solely by aesthetics though, Volcarona. Whiscash looks it just realised it left the gas on and has given up on life.

Then go and get one.

Try multi battles and hope your partner wins when you fail.
ok i will try tomarrow
I posted my answer 2 minutes after Jofly; I didn't see that until after I wrote this.

And BP isn't that hard to get; it's more to do with luck than anything else.

mine dont have swarm and i dont have a life orb
Oh yeah! Quiver Dance!
Breed and get a new one, then train.
Swarm is its hidden ability, which has yet to be released for Volcarona.

In any case, Flame Body is better for Volcarona; considering that Swarm only boosts Bug moves when its HP is below 1/3. Flame Body will have a chance of burning your opponent, causing a drop in attack. At least then, Volcarona will be able to do something useful even if it faints.
