    As you can see, the party consists mainly of sweepers and baton passers, with my aqua ring milotic and ingrain cradily I believe I can baton pass to the sweeper of my choice to take down any pokemon in one hit-two hits.

    Thanks for checking out my team, I hope some of you can help me out.

    P.s please don't tell me to test it out as my ds is broken and I am getting a 3ds within this month.

    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
