Onix is not exactly a wall in that it can hit back hard enough with powerful and near unresisted dual STAB despite its low attack, and even with that stunning base 160 Def it can be worn down by neutral hits with no viable recovery. However Onix can switch into quite a few physical attackers comfortably, and check many of them (an Onix survived my Machop's Dynamicpunch today, only took ~87%, but died to confusion damage). In LC you don't really look for general "special/physical walls" outside of maybe Munchlax (and even then, barely), because there is no Skarmory or Blissey equivilent that can switch into a vast majory of sweepers for their type, inspead you find Pokemon that are effective against specific physical or special threats or groups of them.
