Well, let's look at the pros and cons of these Pokemon

Volcarona

Pros:

  • Amazing Special Attack

  • Solid Speed and Special Defense

  • 6 resistances

  • Has access to some pretty good moves that cover it's weaknesses

Cons:

  • Poor Attack and Defense

  • 4x weakness to Rock

  • Evolves late

  • Also note that Larvesta/Volcarona are only available after going through a bit of the Isle of Armor, so if you don't have the DLC, you'll need someone to trade with.

Thanks, X!

Ribombee

Pros:

  • Amazing Speed

  • Pretty good Special Attack

  • Has access to some pretty strong moves such as Psychic, Moonblast, and Bug Buzz

Cons:

  • Bad Attack, pretty bad defense and HP

  • Doesn't have a large variety of coverage for it's weaknesses

  • Horrible Abilities

Overall, I'd pick Volcarona

If you use Volcarona, I'd suggest this moveset:

Volcarona @ anything

Ability: Flame Body

-Quiver Dance

-Fiery Dance/Fire Blast

-Bug Buzz

-Giga Drain

Hope I've helped!

Ribombee and Volcarona's poor Attack stat doesn't really matter since you're always going to be using Special moves on them. Also, natures aren't as important in playthroughs
still, I'd like to throw that out there
and I edited it
Volcarona evolves late. So maybe it is difficult to use. Early game - Ribombee, Late Game - Volcarona

(Source: Experience: I have Struggled with my Lombre in Emerald, though it was extremely helpful for the E4)
I said that it evolves late
Also note that Larvesta/Volcarona are only available after going through a bit of the Isle of Armor, so if you don't have the DLC, you'll need someone to trade with.
yeah but in the gen 7 anything goes tier on showdown which hidden power should I run or both ribombee and volcarona
What? Showdown? But you tagged this question for an in-game team and sword and shield!

But I suggest using electric/grass for Volcarona and Ground HP for Ribombee. Though next DONT ask for an in-game team moveset and such and then ask for a competitive-answer
