Will post the set that I use on pretty much every NU team.
Golbat @ Eviolite
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
- Super Fang
Golbat may just be the best physical wall in the entire NU tier. With Eviolite, his physical bulk is absolutely insane. With a 4x resistance to Fighting types, he's the perfect counter to heavy hitters like Sawk and Gurdurr. Roost allows him to heal up and stay healthy, and well as mitigate the effects of rock type moves. This way, with careful prediction and luck that Stone Edge does not crit, Golbat can stall out even the mighty Regirock. It's absolutely nuts how many teams get walled by Golbat, and are simply prey to Toxic stalling and being worn out with Super Fang. A great defensive mon with tons of utility, and great for shutting down setup sweepers.
Downsides include being weak to the increasingly prevalent Electric and Ice type attacks in the tier, particularly Rotom-F. The new hail metagame is not particularly friendly to him.
Also, can anyone suggest a specially defensive partner for Golbat? I've been looking for one forever but just haven't found one that really gels.
