The combination of a high Defense and Special Defense and being a pre-evolved Pokemon make Galarian Corsola the ideal user of Eviolite. Regaining HP while lower its enemy's attack with Strength Sap, then using the damage from Will-o-Wisp and Night Shade to knock them out - it's shaping up to be a great tank in the Sword and Shield metagame.

Other Viable Moves

Hex An alternate choice for Night Shade. When the opponent is already Burned by Will-o-Wisp, this can be pulled out for a little extra damage.
Mirror Coat For use against a Special Attacker. Its only weak point is against Dark-type Special Attackers.
Scald Used for hitting Fire-types expected to switch in on it. Even if the Pokemon doesn't turn out to be a Fire-type, it still might end up with a nasty Burn.

How to Use Galarian Corsola Effectively

A Pokemon with few weaknesses

With its high Defense and Special Defense further boosted by Eviolite, it can handle attacks from a wide variety of opponents. And as a Ghost type, it only has weaknesses to Ghost and Dark type moves, making the pool of moves that can deal heavy damage to it exceedingly small.

Effective wall for physical attackers

With a combination of Strength Sap and Will-o-Wisp, it can cut down physical attackers who come up against it by lowering their Attack. Pokemon like Dragapult and Mimikyu that pop up everywhere in the current metagame can be effectively handled by Galarian Corsola.

Counters for Galarian Corsola

Prevent it from playing defensively

Despite Galarian Corsola's superb defense, its capabilities as an attacker are low. Using Taunt to prevent it from using Will-o-Wisp and Knock Off to remove its precious Eviolite are effective ways to incapacitate it.

Weaknesses and resistances are wrong

Cursed body is the hidden ability, not regenerator
