Alright, I'm going to rate this thing.

Where is the Ninetales? Ninetales really helps, as it basically weakens your Water weakness, as well as powering up STAB moves. Right now, the most expendable Pokemon on your team seems to be Arcanine. Replace Arcanine for this Ninetales:

Ninetales (M) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 124 Def / 132 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Flamethrower
- Will-O-Wisp
- Roar
- Substitute

Now, onto your other Pokemon:

For your Volcarona, you seem to be running defensive, to take full advantage of Flame Body. However, since we Sun now, having Sun boosted Volcarona is absolutely deadly. So change your EVs to 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd, and swap your Roost for Hidden Power [Rock] to allow you to hit Rotom-H and Heatran.

Infernape could really use a mixed set here. You have 3 Choice Users, which isn't all that great, in my opinion. Try the Life Orb Infernape:

Infernape (M) @ Life Orb
enter image description here
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Overheat
- Mach Punch
- Close Combat
- ThunderPunch

Heatran can fill in as a Specially Defensive Pokemon, as you do need something to sponge strong Special moves, and Heatran has great bulk for it.

Heatran (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 248 HP / 248 SDef / 12 Spd
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Lava Plume
- Stealth Rock
- Earth Power
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Darmanitan can use Rock Slide instead of Earthquake for more damage due to Sheer Force.

Your Rotom-H needs a complete revamp when using Choice Specs, as you do need some Speed on your Special side right now:

Rotom-H @ Choice Specs

Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Overheat
- Volt Switch
- Hidden Power [Grass]
- Trick

Ok Flare I'm gonna try and help but don't expect a fancy answer :P

Defensive volcarona is not cool. It's fearsome reputation is in quiver dance. After 2 it can efectively sweep with fiery dance raising its special attack. Try using this set

Volcarona@life orb
Evs: 252 Spa 252 spe 4 spd
timid nature
-fiery dance
-quiver dance
-bug buzz
-HP rock

This set uses volcarona's amazing special attack to its full advantage. Have fun

Dafuq are you doing putting swords dance on a BANDED infernape. Completely wasting a moveslot. And if you're banded you wanna hit hard and have no regrets so try this set

Infernape@choice band
Evs: 252 atk 252 spe 4 hp
Jollr nature
-Close combat
-flare blitz
-thunder punch
-mach punch

I know you wanna use iron fist to its full potential but flare blitz is superior here close combat lowers its defenses which can't take a hit in the first place. Mach punch is so fun to use to revenge kill.

so ya wanna go defensive huh. Well thats fine but i like special heatran better. Let me see.....
Lava plume is used to burn since you're defensive but putting toxic is stupid since you are going for the burn. Stealth rock and roar combo is ok. So replace toxic with earth power to get really nice coverage. And you ain't out speeding anyone so make that timid nature modest. Consider investing more evs in spd then def because once you get that burn physical moves won't bother you.

Don't get me wrong darmanitan is a good fire type but I don't see much use in him. This team would completely wreck in sun though...you know where I'm going with this.

Ninetales is the bringer of light and will make fire ridiculously powerful.

252 spa 252 spe
timid nature
-fire blast
-nasty plot
-sunny day

Fire blast gets crazy in the sun. Solarbeam is awsome now. Nasty plot is self explanatory and Sunny day is to shift the momentum back in your favor if your opponent tries something funny. This pokemon will make your team very powerful.

I like this one. No need to change anything except 252 hp should be 252 spe


Where is the volt switch. That is like a must have on every rotom. Replace discharge with volt switch and confuse ray with STAB fire blast. You don't wanna get stuck confusing.

This should sum it up. Hope you do well.
