[OVERVIEW]
Pyukumuku is a decent option on stall teams to ward off common setup sweepers like Ribombee, Scrafty, and Sandaconda. Pyukmuku's considerable defenses combined with Unaware can make it difficult to break through. Compared to its Unaware competition in Quagsire, Pyukumuku's typing has the pros of letting it better take Seed Bomb from Perrserker and take Shadow Ball from offensive Jellicent in a pinch. However, most of the time Quagsire still has the superior typing, and it also has more versatility with its moveslots. Also, Pykukumuku is completely shut down by Taunt, which is found on the tier staple Jellicent.

Block allows Pyukumuku to trap and KO foes, stalling them out with Spite or Toxic. Rest is preferred in the last moveslot so Pyukumuku is not easily worn down by Toxic Ferroseed or Gigalith, and it gives an additional form of recovery. Further, since Pyukumuku won't use PP while asleep, Rest can contribute nicely to PP stalling. Alternatively, Toxic can be useful to wear down Pokemon like Jellicent, which cannot be trapped and hates taking it on the switch, and it makes Pyukumuku not dead weight against Pokemon with pivot moves, which get around Block. Pyukumuku only fits on stall teams, and it needs sturdy walls like Audino and Aromatisse to handle Pokemon that get past Pyukumuku despite Unaware, like Galarian Articuno and Gallade. Aromatisse and Audino are also good partners, since they can provide Heal Bell support. This is especially important when not running Rest to remedy opposing Toxic. Consistent entry hazard removal from Pokemon such as Articuno avoids having Pyukumuku overwhelmed before it can stall out attacks too.

[OVERVIEW]
Pyukumuku is a decent option on stall teams to ward off common setup sweepers like Ribombee, Scrafty, and Sandaconda. Pyukmuku's considerable defenses combined with Unaware can make it difficult to break. It does have to compete with Quagsire though, as Quagsire has better typing and more versatility with its move slots in addition to having Unaware. (should probably also note that quag isn't completely shut down by taunt and isn't as annoyed as pyuku by substitute.)

this overview feels like it's missing an extra point or two that makes a case for pyukumuku as a standalone unaware mon. i know quag is usually better for the reasons you state, but stuff like being able to trap + PP stall mons can be extremely huge, and there are some instances where pyuku's mono-water typing is better than quag's dual typing, like vs seed bomb perrserker.

Block allows Pyukumuku to trap foes and stall them out with Spite or Toxic. Rest is preferred so Pyukumuku is not stopped by Toxic Ferroseed or Gigalith. (rest also serves as a secondary means of recovery and makes it easier to waste turns while trying to PP stall.) Alternatively, Toxic can be useful to wear down Pokemon like Jellicent which cannot be trapped, and makes Pyukumuku not dead weight when unable to Block against pivots. Pyukumuku only fits on stall teams, thus needing sturdy walls like Audino and Aromatisse to handle Pokemon that do not need to boost to get past Pyukumuku, like Galarian Articuno and Gallade. Aromatisse and Audino are also good partners since they can provide Heal Bell support. Consistent hazard removal from Pokemon such as Articuno is appreciated to avoid having Pyukumuku overwhelmed before it can stall out attacks too.

Rest is preferred in the last moveslot so Pyukumuku is not stopped by Toxic Ferroseed or Gigalith, (AC) and it gives an additional form of recovery. (is this in case recover runs out of pp, or could the full hp restore in one turn be very impactful, or something else? pls clarify) Further, since Pyukumuku won't use PP while asleep, (I imagine?) Rest can contribute nicely to PP stalling. Alternatively, Toxic can be useful to wear down Pokemon like Jellicent, (AC) which cannot be trapped and hates taking it on the switch, (i assume, because you mention it has taunt? reword/change/remove this as needed) and it makes Pyukumuku not dead weight when unable to Block against pivots. against Pokemon with pivot moves, which get around Block.
