I need a wall for my semi competitive team and I've narrowed it down to those two, help?

I'd say Ferrothorn is a better choice, and its all depending on what you are looking for in those Pokemon. Both are excellent walls, that set up entry hazards such as Spikes, and Stealth Rock. Not to mention both can Explode. The only difference between the both is Ferrothorn for instance is more like a bulky wall, especially which leech seed, sub, paralyze, and leftys'. While on the other hand Bronzong can be a bulky supporter with Light Screens, Reflect, and etc.

Ferrothorn is a very good wall for competitive battling. Here's what I recomend:
Ferrothorn@ leftovers
ability: iron barbs
EV's: 252 hp/ 80 def / 176 sp def
nature: +def -sp att or speed
moves:
stealth rock
power whip
leech seed
toxic/ thunder wave

you could also use:
curse
gyro ball
stealth rock
leech seed

If you would rather use Bronzong then this is what I recommend:

Bronzong@leftovers
ability: levitate
EV's: 252 hp/ 128 def/ 128 sp def
nature: +def or sp def -speed or sp att
moves:
stealth rock
confuse ray/ swagger
hypnosis/ toxic
zen headbutt/ earthquake/ payback/ gyro ball

Over all, I recommend Ferrothorn.
Hope this helps :)

Ferrothorn is usually the preffered pic due to its access to leech seed and the fact that its got 74/131/116 defences while bronzong has 67/116/116 defences. Bronzong and Ferrothorn both have great abilities though, as ferrothorn causes damage from physical attackers, while Bronzong is either immune to ground attacks or has half the damage from fire attacks. Ferrothorn also has access to spikes, which is a great move, considering these two are primarily support. Ferrothorn is 75% of the time going to be the better pick, but remember Ferrothorh is OU while Bronzong is UU, so they are going to be used in seperate tiers if you play on Pokemon Showdown or Pokemon Online. But overall, your best bet is ferrothorn.
