Defensive Calm Mind

Cursola @ Lum Berry / Leftovers
Ability: Perish Body
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Strength Sap
- Calm Mind
- Shadow Ball
- Earth Power / Ice Beam

What separates Cursola from its superior defensive pre-evolution is its higher Sp. Atk stat, and ability to wall both physical and special attackers with its access to Perish Body and Strength Sap, forcing the opponent to switch out. Though this forces Cursola to switch out in 3 turns as well, its ability to wall before getting away can be helpful. Calm Mind is used to boost up Cursola's Sp. Atk and Sp. Def stats, with those two stats already being high, making Cursola a mixed wall. Shadow Ball is Cursola's best STAB move, and Earth Power is another move that can be used. However, Ice Beam can be used instead, as Flying Types can give Cursola a hard time. Lum Berry is used for this set to prevent Cursola from being crippled by status effects. Leftovers can also be used for slightly more healing, though Strength Sap already patches it up. The EV spread used maximizes Cursola's defensive needs, as its defense stat is very poor. A Bold nature is used to boost up its defense stat, and the 0 attack IVs are used to protect Cursola from Foul Play.

Galarian Corsola (Ghost)
Ability: Cursed Body
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
EVs: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Item: Eviolite
-­Whirlpool / Mirror Coat
­-Will-O-Wisp
­-Night Shade
­-Strength Sap

Whirlpool traps the opponent in order to burn it with Will-O-Wisp. If you prefer a damaging move then you can pick Mirror Coat as well. Night Shade is for a steady 50/100 HP damage. Strength Sap is basically a full restore which will also lower the opponent's attack.
