What would be better, Muk or Weezing?

Or any other bulky Poison-types out there.
Mega venusaur and amoongus
But out of those two I'd say weezing
thank you
but with all the talon flame roaming around, i might not use em
lel use gliscor
Gliscor is not a poison type.
I know, but Gliscor outclasses both.

Out of the two, Weezing is definitely the better tank of the two. That isn't saying much though, both of them are equally bad in this metagame.

Weezing gets a more than decent movepool for a staller though, in Will-O-Wisp and Clear Smog, Haze and Pain Split. It also gets Flamethrower and Sludge Bomb for more reliable damage.

As already said in the comments though, Mega Venusaur and Amoonguss are both much better walls/tanks, and actually do a good job. Other Pokemon include Tentacruel and Nidoqueen also do the job well. Some people even run bulky Roserades, that usually hide behind a Substitute and proceed to set up Spikes/Toxic Spikes and Leech Seed. Niche Pokemon like Defog Skuntank can also be pretty hard to take down at times.

Overall though, the best tanks among Poison types are almost undoubtedly Mega Venusaur, Amoonguss and Tentacruel.

Hope I helped!
