    I'd like to say bronzong but cresselia puts up a screens nicely as well. JIrachi is another good choice as is uxie, both of whom can u-turn out as well. Meganium has solid typing making it another good choice. It come down to how you plan your team out but i would say that Jirachi is one of the best screeners since he can switch in easily under sandstorm and stealth rock and get a screen up. He is also strong on the offense having a great movepool to compliment the screens.

    Bronzong might have slightly lower defenses than Cresselia, but it has fewer weaknesses and has a better defensive and stalling movepool. Also, it can resist SR easily; with Levitate Spikes has no effect as well. To top it off, Gyro Ball and TR carry Bronzong through the NU and UU battling environments, even OU Pokemon can have decent trouble. Now, just add Dual Screens and Bronzong becomes close to unstoppable, let alone if it has very good EVs.

    Bronzong isn't in the highest tier of the tree for no reason. Excellent typing, decent attack, and low speed to use gyro ball, since the metagame these days has a lot to do with speed.

    All though speed is almost crucial in the metagame these days, some Pokemon are sluggish for a reason. So what if Bronzong is snail-paced, it'll just slap the opponent hard with STAB Gyro Ball. 150 base power + 75 extra base power for STAB = a whopping 225 avarage base power with 100 accuracy; so just 5 PP for Gyro Ball is almost too fair.


    Completely agree with post above this one. ^^

    Technically, Cresselia IS the best dual screener, but I see her as an uber(which she probably is), so I don't take Cresselia as a real option.

    Bronzong and Cresselia both have their advantages. It really depends on what else you want your Pokemon to do.

    Brongonz arguably has better typing. Steel/Psychic gives you a variety of resists and an immunity to Poison. Your two remaining weaknesses can be helped with Bronzong's abilities, Heatproof (reduces fire type damage by 50%) or Levitate (immune to Ground). Bronzong's atk stat is decent, but doesn't have much to do besides Gyro Ball and Explode. No way to heal, but he does get access to Stealth Rock. Bronzong's other weakness is his Steel typing might get locked in by Magnet Pull Magnezone.

    Cresselia is what I've been using on Shoddy for a while and I'm enjoying it. I run the two screens, Thunder Wave, and Lunar Dance. It makes a great counter to a lead Infernape. And if played correctly, Lunar Dance can basically give another Pokemon an extra "life", removing all status effects, healing HP, and restoring every moves' PP. It's pure Psychic typing, however, does leave it vulnerable to Bug, Dark, and Ghost, but a full team can usually help absorb these types of atks. And non-stab Bug attacks really don't do as much damage as one would think. Cress also gets Moonlight to restore HP.

    Both are fairly bulky and usually can take hits and don't need to heal all the time so they can hold Light Clay.

    I've been using Uxie as a dual screen with Stealth Rock and Memento lately.
    It works pretty well, especially when most people are going to be expecting Bronzong and Cresselia.

    Uxie sets up SR easily and once the dual screens and SR are in place, I use Memento which makes Uxie faint but it makes your opponents Attack and Special Attack drop. Most of the time, the opponent switches out that poke which gives me time to start setting up my Baton pass team.

    Breonzong has the defense to come in and out multiple times and restart screens.

    Bronzong. It's bulky as hell, so it can get in a couple screens.
