Out of curiosity, you can supply some sets you believe utilise Volcanions defensive side the best?I think you're missing the point about defensive volcanion in that it doesnt necessitate a defensive team to be floored by stall-breaker talonflame, which is a weakness with a lot of defensive teams, since unlike Rotom-w it can now apply offensive pressure using scald while covering steels such as Ferro in one slot. If you've tried using a Rotom-W to cover a SpDef Talonflame you'll notice real quick the moment Rotom-W catches an incoming Will-O-Wisp it starts to become shakier and shakier as a check in the long run. Rotom-W's only means to handle most steels is throwing a will-o-wisp while Volcanion can actually attack / threaten them with Flamethrower. You don't need Wisp on Volcanion when Scald, flamethrower, toxic, utility move (I use Haze) will cover what Volcanion would be doing in terms of defensive utility. Rotom-W also doesn't have the viable means to beat things like Mega Bro 1v1 as it sets up on you while you volt switch and turn your team-mates into fodder. They cover different threats defensively, even offensively when you consider Volcanions access to Flamethrower such as Amoonguss and grasses, and I don't know why people are using steam eruption on the defensive set with the low pp that it has that defeats the purpose of using it for defense. Definitely has more than just Water Absorb as defensive utility.
