Zamazenta-Crowned @ Rusted Shield
Ability: Dauntless Shield
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Behemoth Bash
- Close Combat
- Play Rough / Psychic Fangs
- Crunch / Metal Burst

Dual STAB, and your choice of attack to hit fighting types. Crunch is just another coverage move, or Metal Burst can be used for Zamazenta's big bulk.

I like this moveset but with Zamezenta's bulk wouldnt you not want close combat?
Actually, because of it bulk you would. It can use it and still have good enough defenses afterward that it can survive a hit
