I'll assume this is a UU team.

Cute Charm is a terrible ability on Milotic. It's not likely to trigger against opposite-gendered Pokemon and infatuation can be cured by switching anyway. If memory serves me right, it can't learn Baton Pass either. It's better off supporting the team with its high defenses:
-Ice Beam
-Toxic/Dragon Tail/Haze
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/252 Def/8 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Marvel Scale

-Sleep Talk
-Dragon Tail
Nature: Calm
EVs: 248 HP/196 Def/56 SDef/8 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Marvel Scale

Trick is better off on Choice sets. Porygon-Z's current set is seriously lacking in coverage here:
-Nasty Plot
-Tri Attack
-Hidden Power (Fighting)
-Dark Pulse
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Adaptability

-Tri Attack
-Dark Pulse
-Hidden Power (Fighting)
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf
Ability: Adaptability

-Tri Attack
-Dark Pulse
-Hidden Power (Fighting)
Nature: Modest
EVs: 96 HP/252 SAtk/160 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Download

Cradily can't learn Baton Pass either. Clearly, Smeargle is your best bet for BP'ing Ingrain, since it's the only Pokemon who can do so:
-Baton Pass
-*insert set-up move here, preferably Shell Smash*
Nature: Jolly/Timid
EVs: 80 HP/96 Def/80 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Own Tempo

Druddigon can't learn Swords Dance; Hone Claws is the only Attack-boosting move it learns. It can't take on offensive and defensive roles at once; it has to choose one:
-Sucker Punch
-Dragon Claw/Superpower
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 144 HP/252 Atk/112 Spe
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Mold Breaker

-Stealth Rock
-Dragon Tail/Roar
-Dragon Claw
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/4 Atk/252 Def
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Rough Skin

As I said before, I'm assuming this is a UU team, so I'm replacing Forretress and Ninetales with something else, like, say, Hitmontop and Darmanitan:

-Rapid Spin
-Close Combat
-Sucker Punch/Stone Edge
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Intimidate

-Flare Blitz
-Rock Slide
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band/Choice Scarf/Life Orb
Ability: Sheer Force
