ONE of my personal favorites!!!

U Mad Bro?
Dusclops (M) @ Eviolite
Nature: Impish (+Def, -SpAtk)
Trait: Pressure
Role: Wall

EV Distrubution:
255 Def
255 SpDef

  • Protect
  • Pain Split
  • Confuse Ray/ Will O' Wisp/ Payback
  • Toxic/ Will O' Wisp/ Payback

Beware of Taunt (credit to blaziken for reminder), so Payback or an Elemental Punch (Fire, Ice, or Thunder) is an option.

Is the scrafty set even stalling? But I like the dusclops set though, but my only concern about toxic stalling is that steel and poison types can completely ruin you. So can you think of any ways to get around that?
That Scrafty set was more Wall. sry. But as for Dusclops, try  Will O' Wisp. The attack drop allows Dusclops to battle more and Pain Split along with Protect will really mess with your opponent.

Try this guy.

Umbreon
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Synchronize/Inner-focus
Nature: Careful/Sassy
EVs: 200 Hp, 58 Defense, 252 S.Defense

Curse: Boosting
Wish: Healing
Protect/Payback: Stalling or Damage
Toxic/Payback/Heal-bell: Stalling or Damage or Team support


Also my Grotle set from the Torterra moveset question has proven to be excellent in the lower tiers.

Grotle
Item: Evolite
Ability: Shell-armour
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 Defense, 252 S.Defense, 6 Hp

Stock-pile: Boost those Defenses
Synthesis: Healing
Toxic: Status
Leech-seed: Passive and Healing

For Umbreon: Switch Wish for Moonlight, and use PP Max. Payback is a MUST with Curse!!! i suggest Confuse Ray to cripple Pokemon with High Attack.
Wish is better, because you can switch and heal a team mate AND if you have protect you can stall very well with it. Furthermore if your opponent has Hail/Sand/Rain then Moonlight only heals 1/4 health. Overall Wish is more reliable and useful.
i commented, then i saw who i was commenting on (Speed freak). i shinxed my trousers.
