Avalugg. Cloyster has better things to do like use Shell Smash. Cloyster also doesn't pack Recover or Sturdy like Avalugg does, so it's better off being offensive Shell Smash rather than a defensive Pokemon.

Avalugg @ Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Def, 4 Atk
Nature: Impish
- Recover
- Avalanche
- Gyro Ball/ Stone Edge/ Rapid Spin
- Earthquake

Having said Avalugg, it has a very poor typing to wall. There are better options like Landorus-T, Slowbro, Tangrowth et. al.

@ Kijani the only reason he can survive that Focus Blast is because of Filter.
Ik that Slash. But he can still survive it,
"terrible HP and Special Defense. One Focus Blast and it's out, but it can take Physical Attacks all day. Hmm.

Just proving that he can even take a Focus Blast.
Fine. :P
Aggron would be one of my favorite non-legendary pokemon if it weren't for its MASSIVE WEAKNESS TO FIGHTING!!!
cloyster has a 50% chance of setting up, if it does, it is hard to stop. avalugg however, will deal out a few strong hits, but 2 special hits=KO
