    You're team is pretty good! It seems like you've got the basics down well, but it'll never hurt to do some more R&D.

    Starmie is a great candidate for Rapid Spin. Having a move that will clear the field is always great considering how many teams out there have a Pokemon that lay entry hazards. So you may want to consider something like that.

    Starmie @ Life Orb
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 76 HP / 252 SAtk / 180 SDef
    Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
    - Hydro Pump
    - Rapid Spin
    - Ice Beam
    - Recover

    Also, if you are going to have a special sweeping Starmie, you may want to try the Choice Specs as Vrai mentioned with Machamp.

    Starmie @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Speed
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
    - Hydro Pump
    - Thunder Bolt
    - Ice Beam
    - Psychic

    But it's probably in your best interest to stay with Recover. There's an awful lot that you can try out until you find what you like.

    Good luck Feralig8rx!
    Thanks so much! I really appreciate the feedback!

    I will definitely take note of these changes and play around as I mess with the team. You're right about the rapid spin- I totally forgot about it!
