Best answer

Yes.
Reuniclus can be a Brilliant Wall.

Reuniclus
Reuniclus
Item: Leftovers
Ability Magic Guard
Bold Nature
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Moveset
~ Calm Mind
~ Recover
~ Psychic / Psyshock
~ Focus Blast

Calm Mind, of course, is the crux of this set, as it allows Reuniclus to take more hits on its uninvested Special Defense and makes it hit harder. When the opponent begins to put notable damage upon Reuniclus, Recover can heal 50% of its health, which also means there is more time to set up Calm Minds. Psyshock is a decent option over Psychic mainly to defeat Calm Mind Latios and Latias, but it has little utility other than that, as it isn't required to beat special walls such as Blissey. Focus Blast is used to get past Dark- and Steel-types, especially Tyranitar.

So yes IMO when Reuniclus is in play your opponent will not be too happy when he finds out that Reuniclus can take hits whilst using Calm Mind and Recover.

In all seriousness, Psychic STAB is unnecessary and Shadow Ball + Focus Blast is resisted by like 2 pokemon, 1 of which is used in OU, and is fairly uncommon.
Nope, no one resists Shadow Ball + Focus Blast.
That was like 364 days ago. But maybe acid Armir could work as reuni Is weak to physical attackers
Oh, I thought it was just 1 day ago... when it was actually a year...
