Weezing is a premier physical wall in NU! With a pure Poison-typing, it is capable of tanking hits from Fighting-types, such as Hariyama, and also walls Fairy-types, such as Granbull.
Although Weezing has not seen much usage since the ban of Surpluff and M-Lopunny, it is still a good wall in NU.
Will-O-Wisp cripples Physical attackers and further boosts Weezing's Defense (indirectly).
Sludge Bomb gets STAB and has excellent power. Clear Smog on the other hand ruins the plans of set-up sweepers. Here, Sludge Bomb is the superior option because it has higher power.
Pain Split is Weezing's only form of recovery and works well with its low HP.
Flamethrower provides coverage against Steel-types and Ice-types, such as Pawniard and Sneasel (respectively).
Note: Flamethrower is the superior option (over Fire Blast) on this set because the exchange between power and accuracy generally does not fit Weezing's playstyle.
Thunderbolt does not hit any specific threats but works as good coverage if you need it.
Weezing can set up T-Spikes effectively and can be used to wear down the opposing team.
