Is there any Dark types that could function as walls?

mandibuzz, sableye and umbreon are the only decent walls. ttar, scrafty andd krookodile are tanks, not walls and spiritomb has no reliable recovery

If you want a Pokemon that is good at taking hits, but doesn't so anything back, then Umbreon is good. Otherwise, mandibuzz and Tyranitar work well too. I'd mention sableye, but...he's not really a wall in any sense. I haven't tried spiritomb this generation.

Wall - Need reliable recovery - or a niche to function perfectly well whilst asleep (e.g. resttalk/chestorest). Requires good HP and Defenses.
Needs access to status inducing damage. Burn or Poison.
Optional some form of defensive buff or team support.
Attacking move revolving around - Amount of damage recieved. Opponents attack stat. Or current HP.

Pokemon fitting this description.
Mandibuzz (Roost, Toxic, Foul play, Tailwind/taunt etc etc)
Umbreon (Wish/Moonlight, Toxic, Foul play/Payback, Baton pass, heal bell etc etc)
Sableye (Recover, wow, Foul play, Sucker punch, taunt etc etc)

Tanks however can have buffed up defenses (normally one of the other) whilst functioning in a primarily attacking role with additional switch in capabilities. Tyranitar for example can make a decent special tank under sandstorm.
Scrafty is a useful status tank with shedskin and dragon dance/drain punch.

Drapion can function as Phaser support with spikes and whirlwind. Or crit happy (with Sniper + scope lens + Night slash, corss poison etc)
