These would be my changes...you have special attackers in roserade and spiritomb, physical in chomp and lucario (since it's battle spot, mega lucario is fair game)...defensive core in milotic and togekiss is not terrible either since you have chomp...togekiss will cripple gardevoir...mawile will also take massive damage from flamethrower allowing mega luke to take it out with bullet punch or close combat next turn...both resist sucker punch as well...I didn't want to change your team too much but personally, I'd swap spiritomb and lucario as well...I'd go timid special mega lucario with nasty plot/ aura sphere, vacuum wave, dark pulse and flash cannon...and physical adamant spiritomb with shadow sneak, sucker punch, will-o-wisp and protect/ pain split...

Thanks everyone for help. I really appreciate it! :) I have lost intest in battling, byt maybe this team can help me to enjoy it again.

I had in my mind to Mega evolve either Garchomp or Lucario, but i wasn't sure which one. I have used MegaChomp before, but normal Garchomp is better, so maybe i give Mega Lucario a try.

Definitely go with mega lucario...with your team, you need another fast offense since milotic, spiritomb and togekiss are all bulky...also, you can definitely consider gastrodon over milotic for your core since it synergies well with togekiss since togekiss resists grass while gastrodon is immune to electric...Cynthia had one on her DP team as well...you can run sassy, same EV's as milotic with EQ, scald, recover and toxic....

Hmm, I'm not very familiar with Gastrodon, because i have used it only once (in my Diamind nuzlocke) so i don't know how it will work out. I might give it a try, it never hurts to try new things, after all.

You also have every right to use Eelektrosss, Braviary or Glaceon, if you want to stick with the theme.

Gastrodon is a trooper! It's my go-to ground/ water wall...in terms of defensive capabilities, it's better than swampert...it can take on t-flame, it can toxic stall, it has storm drain so it isn't susceptible to scald, it already has recover...it can also go either physically defensive or specially defensive...just don't let grass types get close to it...the only thing that rivals it really is quagsire but that's just because of unaware...and Cynthia never used a quag XD
