If this is already a question can somebody hide it, but I thought we should have a dedicated page for Eviolite-Specific Tanks and/or walls. Please post which tier they are in? I will also not be selecting a best answer, as that could be seen as bias.

In zu, Vigiroth, Tangela, and Kilngklang are viable. Water turtle is ok too
ZU isn't an official tier, so I didn't include it.
Also, Kingklang isn't NFE. Did you mean Klang?
Yeah. Also ZU is an official tier. It’s an OM
Sry. I meant it isn’t one of the core tiers. It is just OM of the month. But I appreciate ur feedback. :)
Tiers in smogon are often called "Official" and "Unofficial" not because they are real or are not, but that smogon names them accordingly. Official tiers must be played/wanted X amount and not use unofficial mechanics (note: and usually are accessible on any server).

 Zu is unofficial even though it is an OM of this month, OM just highlights usually unplayed unofficial tiers. But, on a regular basis, Zu is not playable on every server; it must be requested or played on one that allows it by default (and that has to do with Zu being generally unpopular).

Examples of Unofficial tiers that get played a lot would be BH and CAP; which are unofficial due to fake mechanics.

This is a list of all viable eviolite users recommended by smogon as of USM, there are also movesets for them there. Most of the are in LC, and way too much for me to type into an entire answer, but I can list the rest from all other tiers. I also won't list unrated NFE because nobody uses them anyways :P



Porygon 2


Ferroseed (LC but is used in PU)
Type: Null
(Misdreavus, Prinplup, and Rosilia use eviolite, but are less of tanks :P)

Hope I helped!

Haha! You won't get a vote. Haha! (jk)
U forgot dusknoir or dusk???? :P.
I have edited in the rest :P
Tangla gangla mangla jangla
He asked for viable eviolite walls. Dusclops is not viable. :P
Hmm, it may be viable in a lower tier we don't have (Like the proposed ZU and SU), but it does work in an aptitude smogon accepts. Smogon does say it is viable, but is more of a niche pokemon.
