No, Infernape was NOT used on rain teams to check sun teams. Volcarona was used on rain because it had Hurricane, so it wasn't completely useless against weatherless and sand teams. Moltres was used in the no-SR meta because it checked Volcarona very well, and it too had Hurricane. Infernape's only use was as a sun nuke last gen, and it faced stiff competition from Darmanitan and Victini.I mean't sun nuking in particular, and Infen-rape actually had a place on rain teams, as it was often one of the few pokemon that could function in rain bar one of it's STABs while countering / checking Sun too (no sun sweeper wanted boosted flare blitz to it). but yeah, I suppose you could be right.
