    A physically defensive spread is best for Bronzong, as this makes it a better check towards physical attackers like Snorlax (Relaxed with 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef).

    Change Dusclops' EV spread to 252 HP/176 Def/80 SDef to help it take physical hits better. Or were you going for well-rounded bulk with your current spread?

      Dusclops was intended to be allround bulk, I'll try the change in Bronzong's set.

      I'm also still split between using a team healer and not using it.. Any ideas on this?

        Apparently, your defensive Pokémon lack recovery. Umbreon should help in that case:
        -Wish
        -Foul Play/Payback
        -Heal Bell/Toxic
        -Protect
        Nature: Careful
        EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 SDef
        Item: Leftovers
        Ability: Synchronize
        (maybe over Dusclops; idk)

          Dusclops and Bronzong have proven themselves quite the useful Walls and many opponents didn't know what to do with them.

          I think it will be the best if I replace Flygon, he performs much worse then back in DPP. Kinda bad, since I really like him :/ Ah well. I'll try that Umbreon Set

          Hey there! :]

          You're Defensive Pokemon do lack consistent, reliable recovery. I agree with PlatinumDude's Umbreon suggestion, if nothing it'll give Heal Bell support for Dusclops.

          Also, and this depends on whether or not you choose to replace Flygon, but I wouldn't use Outrage. If you don't want Flygon to be locked into a Choice Band, than locking it into Outrage seems a little counter productive. I mean, there's definitely a benefit to using Outrage because you just can't replicate that power, but considering the Life Orb I'd recommend Dragon Claw.

          Good luck!
