Strategy Using Solrock

Solrock, the counter part Pokemon of Lunatone, this Pokemon specialises in the Attack and defense stats. I'm sure you're sick of the sweepers that have been cropping up quite recently, so its tanking time.
Anyways, Cosmic power is a must to raise those defenses and with EV's into those defenses, it should help out.
Add Toxic there to inflict a status condition that will eventually knock out your opponent.
If you do recieve some HP damage, you should use Rest to recover that lost HP and if you want to wake up early from the sleep condition, chesto berry will cure it.
For the last move, I suggest Rock slide, simply because of its usefulness if Solrock becomes your last Pokemon. But if you want a different move in the moveset, you can replace Rock slide with a similar move that may cover more weaknesses.
To beat Solrock, go after its weaknesses and its weakest defense stat, which is Special defense, so grass and water moves will be good.
Overall, this is an average Pokemon with good potential, nice tanking and physical sweeping abilities.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Defense & Special Defense for Solrock with any remaining in HP

Strategy Against Solrock

Solrock's Defenses are both above average, but it's Special is lower so a Special Volley should work aswell as Dark, Water & Grass Attacks.
