Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Steam Eruption: Volcanion's signature move, where it expels a large quantity of superheated steam at the target and immerses them in it even more so than with Hydro Pump, potentially causing severe burns. Should Volcanion be frozen it will be able to thaw out.
  • Flare Blitz: Volcanion covers itself in powerful flames and charges at its target, while powerful, it proves itself to be taxing on the user's body, and can wear them down if overused. Should Volcanion be frozen it will be able to thaw out.
  • Take Down: Volcanion hurls itself at a target with full force, seeking to slam into them. The recklessness of this attack can prove itself harmful to its user.
  • Haze: Volcanion creates a haze that eliminates all stat changes among all the Pokémon engaged in battle. This can be used to nullify an opponents statistics amplification or to cure suffered status reductions.
  • Mist: Volcanion creates a thick mist that protects itself from status effects.
  • Flame Charge: Volcanion cloaks itself in fire and attacks its target, building up more speed with each usage.
  • Water Pulse: Volcanion attacks with pulsing blast of water that may cause confusion.
  • Stomp: Volcanion tramples the target with a large foot. Its damage is doubled if the opponent has somehow made themselves smaller such as through Minimize.
  • Scald: Volcanion fires boiling water at its target, potentially causing severe burns. Should Volcanion be frozen it will be able to thaw out.
  • Weather Ball: Volcanion fires a ball of energy that changes dependent on the weather.
  • Body Slam: With full force, Volcanion tosses itself onto its target, potentially causing paralysis.
  • Hydro Pump: Volcanion unloads a huge volume of water onto the target with great pressure.
  • Overheat: Volcanion attacks with a ferocious burst of flame however, subsequent uses will be much weaker, and overuse will lower Volcanion's overall combat effectiveness.
  • Explosion: Volcanion attacks everything around it by causing a tremendous explosion. This proves extremely taxing on Volcanion and causes it to faint after usage.
  • Water Absorb: Volcanion's Ability. Any Water-type moves aimed at it heal it instead of doing damage unless it is at peak condition in which case the Water-type move will simply do nothing.
