[OVERVIEW]
Despite a great movepool, Dunsparce has a bad defensive typing, is very susceptible to status, and has terrible stats, which mean that it's completely unable to viably fulfil any role. Miltank is a much more consistent defensive Normal-types, while Alcremie, Cofagrigus, and Klinklang are better bulky setup sweepers. They are able to play around common ways to deal with defensive sweepers like Toxic and Taunt thanks to their respective traits.

Dunsparce attemps to act as a defensive sweeper with Coil. However, it can easily be broken through due to its mediocre stats and is easily stopped by any Toxic users like Miltank. There are much better bulky sweepers like Galarian Rapidash and Skuntank, which are immune to Toxic and more threatening.

Miltank is much more consistent defensive Normal-types, while Alcremie, Cofagrigus, and Klinklang are better bulky setup sweepers. (probably briefly mention their means the cleanse status/klinklang steel typing and sub and alcremie immunity to being shut down by taunt etc.)

Dunsparce attempts to act as a defensive sweeper with Coil. However, it can easily be brute forced due to its mediocre stats and is easily stopped by any Toxic users like Miltank. There are much better bulky sweepers like Galarian Rapidash and Skuntank, which are immune to Toxic and more threatening.

Miltank is much more consistent defensive Normal-types (this doesn't make sense - do you mean 'as a defensive Normal-type'?), while Alcremie, Cofagrigus, and Klinklang are better bulky setup sweepers.
