I am making a battle team, and I want a strong wall that has high defense and special defense. Any good ideas?
I have seen good strategy for Ferrothorn, Gliscor, and Snorlax.

According to Smogon, the most used wall in OU is Skarmory, and the most viable wall in OU is Clefable.
Yes, but neither of them are what I'm looking for
What are you looking for then?
The wall that Gumshoos will build. #MakeAlolaGreatAgain
I want something high in both defense& special defense, not just a wall strong in one of them
There are many Pokemon that can be made into viable mixed walls just by putting EVs and nature into the weaker defense stat. Even Chansey can be made to take physical attacks just fine.

This beast is one heck of a wall. With a base HP of 95, and sky high defenses of 110 and 130.

Notable Moves:

  • Wish. Allows you to heal of huge amounts of damage. Often used with Protect.

  • Protect. Evade damage and stall. Often used with Protect and Toxic.

  • Toxic. Slowly chip away at foes as Umbreon has weak attacking stats. Often used with Protect and Wish.

  • Pursuit. Trap Psychic types and potentially KO them.

  • Foul Play. Use your opponent's attack against them. Often used with Swagger.

  • Refresh. Heal off statuses.

  • Heal Bell. Cure Umbreon and it's allies. Often used with Wish, Protect, Toxic.

  • Rest. Insta heal.

Notable Items:

  • Leftovers. Heal slowly over time. Often used with Protect.

  • Lum Berry. For healing statuses. Do not use with Refresh. Often used with Rest.


Umbreon @ Leftovers

EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
