Smogon says Def, but she's still dead if she takes a physical hit regardless so is it even worth it?
All in the game, yo.

She has a low amount of Defense naturally, so investing 252 EV in Defense basically provides 50% more physical bulk. She already has a naturally high amount of HP, so the 252 EV in HP you're providing is just ~10% more than what you would get naturally.

Low HP, high defense? HP

High HP, low defense? Defense

This works on pretty much all occasions.

PM and I'll add you too. You know you want Water Absorb Maractus.

Defense or bust. Your blissey will be ohkod by tackle if you don't. Hp isn't as important, if you're picking one or the other you have to do defense.
Put this in your sig if you're Atheist and proud of it. It can be your sig if you're Catholic, too.

You really want a Bold Blissey with 252HP, 252Def, and 6 Sp.Def.

Blissey's Sp.Def is naturally absurdly high. Coupled with its monstrous HP stat, it'll take Special-based hits really well even without investment.

Trust me, you'll want the defense so that you don't get OHKO'd by any physical hit that's not a Close Combat.
