Froslass is better off setting up Spikes to support the team with entry hazards to help net some passive damage as non-Fliers/Levitators switch in. It's also a bit too frail to utilize para-flinch effectively. The main point of Froslass is to stack as many Spikes layers as possible (max. 3) before being finished off. If Froslass is down to low HP, it can use take advantage of its high Speed to use Destiny Bond to take the opponent down with it:
-Spikes
-Taunt
-Ice Beam/Shadow Ball
-Pain Split/Destiny Bond
Nature: Timid
EVs: 248 HP/8 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Cursed Body

or
-Spikes
-Taunt
-Destiny Bond
-Ice Beam/Shadow Ball
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 HP/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Cursed Body

While Gardevoir can set up Calm Mind, its average Speed and low defenses somewhat hold it back. Try out Alakazam instead; it hits harder and it's faster than Gardevoir too:
-Psyshock/Psychic
-Shadow Ball
-Focus Blast
-Hidden Power (Ice/Fire)/Substitute
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Focus Sash/Life Orb
Ability: Magic Guard

Staraptor is better off utilizing a Choice item because residual damage from Life Orb in conjunction with Brave Bird recoil shortens its time in battle:
-Return/Double-Edge
-Brave Bird
-Close Combat
-U-turn/Quick Attack
Nature: Jolly/Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf/Choice Band
Ability: Intimidate

Blissey's Attack is outright terrible. Seriously. Its base 10 Attack means that it can't do much damage with Earthquake. Lucky Egg doesn't do anything in competitive battles, since you earn no EXP there. It also has good support options out there for you to take advantage of:
-Aromatherapy/Heal Bell/Stealth Rock
-Thunder Wave/Toxic
-Softboiled
-Seismic Toss/Flamethrower
Nature: Bold
EVs: 4 HP/252 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure

or
-Wish
-Softboiled/Protect
-Seismic Toss/Flamethrower
-Thunder Wave/Toxic
Nature: Bold
EVs: 4 HP/252 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure

While Glaceon has high Special Attack, its shallow movepool, low Speed and bad defensive typing let it down. Since you have an Ice Pokemon in Froslass already, and given that some of your Pokemon are weak to Stealth Rock, Starmie is a solid Rapid Spinner for you to use to rid your team of hazards:
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Ice Beam
-Thunderbolt
-Rapid Spin/Recover
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
Ability: Natural Cure

Poliwrath is the odd man out, IMO. Sure, its bulk is rather good, but there are other Pokemon who can do its job better, like Keldeo, who happens to share the same typing as Poliwrath:
-Hydro Pump
-Secret Sword
-Hidden Power (Ghost/Ice)
-Icy Wind/Surf
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs

If Keldeo is banned from Random Matchup, use Terrakion instead:
-Swords Dance
-Rock Polish
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Air Balloon/Rock Gem

Edit: you seem to be weak to Scizor just by looking at this team. Heatran or Volcarona can handle it nicely:

Heatran:
-Fire Blast
-Earth Power
-Hidden Power (Ice/Grass)
-Stealth Rock/Taunt/Flame Charge/Substitute
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Air Balloon
Ability: Flash Fire

or
-Overheat
-Flamethrower
-Earth Power
-Hidden Power (Ice)/Dragon Pulse
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf
Ability: Flash Fire

or
-Overheat/Fire Blast
-Dragon Pulse
-Earth Power
-Hidden Power (Grass)/Flamethrower
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs
Ability: Flash Fire

Volcarona:
-Quiver Dance
-Fiery Dance/Fire Blast
-Bug Buzz
-Rest
Nature: Modest
EVs: 160 HP/252 SAtk/96 Spe
Item: Chesto Berry
