Weezing's relevance in the meta is in part due to its fantastic defensive typing, which allows it to be a natural check to Fighting- and Grass-types such as Passimian and Virizion. Additionally, Weezing's ability, Levitate, lets it check Ground-types such as Steelix and Rhydon. Will-O-Wisp allows Weezing to cripple physically offensive Pokemon such as Copperajah and Rhydon, while Pain Split allows it to have more sustainability throughout the match. Fire Blast is a good option, as it hits Pokemon such as Duraludon and Steelix on the switch. Taunt allows Weezing to block non-attacking moves such as Stealth Rock from Rhydon and Wish from Vaporeon. Toxic Spikes allows Weezing to spread poison against grounded Pokemon, letting its teammates break the opposing team more easily. 96 EVs in Speed allow Weezing to outspeed maximum Speed Adamant Rhydon, which in turn allows it to inflict Rhydon with Will-O-Wisp or Taunt. Black Sludge enables Weezing to have more sustainability throughout the game, while Rocky Helmet allows it to chip physically offensive Pokemon such as Snorlax and Passimian when it gets attacked.

Pokemon such as Gastrodon and Copperajah make for great partners with Weezing. Gastrodon is able to switch into Pokemon that threaten Weezing, such as Inteleon, Alolan Raichu, and Salazzle, due to its ability Storm Drain and natural Electric immunity as a result of its part Ground typing. In turn, Weezing is able to switch in comfortably on Pokemon such as Virizion and Rillaboom that Gastrodon does not fare too well against due to being 4x weak to Grass-type moves. Copperajah can check threats to Weezing such as Indeedee and Xatu due to its Steel typing, and Weezing in return can switch into Pokemon such as Rhydon and Steelix, which Copperajah has trouble breaking through. Snorlax also makes for a good partner to Weezing, as its high Special Defense complements Weezing's Defense, while Weezing is able to switch into Pokemon such as Passimian and Virizion that Snorlax has trouble with. If running Toxic Spikes in the fourth slot, slow wallbreakers such as Bewear and Drampa make for good teammates, as they appreciate the support offered by Toxic Spikes that helps wear down defensive switch-ins.

Mention general special walls, such as Snorlax, that compliment its super high physical defense. Also mention checks for Salazzle, which comes in kind of freely against Weezing's Poison / Fire coverage. [You already mention Gastrodon as a teammate, just specifically state that another reason it is good is that it checks Lazzle for Weezing].

Otherwise this looks good. That's pretty much what Weezing does, haha, really can't think of anything else!

Weezing finds a place in the meta ("finds a place in the meta" seems like an awkward wording to me; maybe try "Weezing's relevance in the meta is in part..." there? What you wrote is grammatically correct,so you can keep it.) due to its fantastic defensive typing, which allows it to be a natural check to Fighting- and Grass-type Pokemon such as Passimian and Virizion. Additionally, Weezing's ability Levitate lets it check Ground-types such as Steelix and Rhydon. Will-O-Wisp allows Weezing to cripple physically offensive Pokemon such as Copperajah and Rhydon, while Pain Split allows Weezing to have more sustainability throughout the match. Fire Blast allows it to hit Pokemon such as Duraludon and Steelix on the switch-in (perhaps you could try "Fire Blast is a good option for Weezing, as it hits Pokémon like Duraludon and Steelix hard on the switch-in"). Taunt allows Weezing to block non-attacking moves such as Stealth Rock from Rhydon and Wish from Vaporeon. Toxic Spikes allows Weezing to spread poison against grounded Pokemon (maybe try rewording this sentence to something like, "Among Weezing's options to punish grounded Pokemon is Toxic Spikes, which is effective in spreading poison" to vary your sentence structure). This lets Weezing’s teammates break the opposing team a lot easiermore easily. 96 EVs in Speed allows Weezing to outspeed Max Speed Adamant Rhydon, which in turn allows it to hit Rhydon with a Will-O-Wisp or Taunt. Black Sludge allows (maybe "enables" here instead of "allows" to break up that repetition?) Weezing to have more sustainability throughout the game, while Rocky Helmet allows it to chip physically offensive Pokemon such as Snorlax and Passimian when it gets attacked. (It's usually best in writing to switch up your sentence structure. You start many sentences in this paragraph with, "x allows Weezing to do y." Try varying how you communicate this so that it doesn't become repetitive. I gave a few recommendations here, but obviously do what you think is best.)

(I just cleaned this sentence up because you had a lot of clauses going to the point where it was a bit jumbled) Snorlax also makes for a good partner to Weezing, as its high sSpecial dDefense complements Weezing's physical dDefense, while Weezing is able to switch into Pokemon such as Passimian and Virizion that Snorlax has trouble with.
