Thanks to its enormous Defense and unique ability Mummy, Cofagrigus can easily spread burns and potentially cripple common Fighting-types like Machamp, Bewear, and Toxicroak and Pokemon that rely on their abilities like Tyrantrum, Araquanid, and Slurpuff. Unfortunately, that's where the positive traits end with Cofagrigus. It is easily shut down by Taunt users such as Mandibuzz because of its low Speed, it is heavily worn down by status conditions and strong attacks, it has a low HP stat that does not compliment its defenses, it lacks recovery besides the unreliable Pain Split, and it is overall just extremely passive. Other Pokemon such as Necrozma, Slowbro, and Cresselia are stronger options to deter Fighting-types thanks to their access to reliable recovery, better stats all around, way less passive field presence, and stronger utility options outside of checking Fighting-types.
move 1: Will-O-Wisp
move 2: Shadow Ball
move 3: Pain Split
move 4: Haze / Toxic Spikes
item: Colbur Berry
evs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
This set capitalizes on Cofagrigus's good Defenses, Mummy, its access to Will-O-Wisp, and Colbur Berry to cripple Fighting-types like Machamp that go for Knock Off, and then wearing them down further with Shadow Ball or erasing boosts with Haze. Toxic Spikes can help it beat bulkier Pokemon like Snorlax, but losing Haze hurts Cofagrigus's matchup against Pokemon like Virizion. Leftovers can be used to mitigate its weakness to residual damage.
