50% of all Ninetales use Flamethrower according to the usage statistics of April, and 40% of all Ninetales run Timid as their nature. 252 SpA Timid Ninetales using Flamethrower vs BulkyRona in sun : 43.66 - 51.75%. This is never a 2hko after lefties, and don't bring hazards into the argument, 'cause we all know that a good Volcarona team will have a solution for this. And of 'course Volcarona will be at full health, since it is supposed to be an end game sweeper right? Which means that you don't bring it out, unless you know that you can sweep.
You also mentioned Roar, which only 18% of all Ninetales run, so i think we can all agree that Volcarona is undeniably a check, since it can easily set-up on Roar-less Ninetales if it comes in for free, and could be a counter in some certain situations, such as Roar-less defensive Ninetales, and against offensive Flamethrower Ninetales with no hazards up.
Anyway i don't really know why are we even doing this conversation, since i think that everyone knows that Volcarona is a check/counter to Ninetales.
