Is he relatively useful in-game or not? I see he is specially defensive, but is he good for anything other than soaking hits from select Pokemon? He does have 3 weaknesses but resists 7 types so he could be a valuable wall. But I don't know his moveset...

Well, walls are less effective ingame. Well, not really less effective, just unneeded, as you don't need to switch around a bunch and get good resists and have matches take forever when instead you can just sweep the foe with ease.

As for its use as a wall outside of ingame, it has solid stats and typing, but nothing so far indicates a walling moveset. Lacking a recovery move generally sucks.
Awh, I thought as much... But as for walls I agree, but I ahve found several exceptions like Serperior who can be very useful in Black/White2
^ But that's because in-game trainers are usually not equipped to deal with stat stallers, so you can set up Light Screen and mass spam Coil.

He is good at more than just sp defence he is an amazing special attacker mine is over 300 special attack at level 100 so he can also do that.
