    Your team needs Rapid Spin/Defog support, and there's 3 phyiscal walls that could do that for you:

    -Forretress w/Leftovers or Shed Shell
    Nature: Relaxed
    Ability: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP, 252 Defense, 4 Sp.Defense
    Moves: Rapid Spin, Spikes/Stealth Rock, Volt Switch/Gyro Ball, Earthquake

    -Donphan w/Leftovers
    Nature: Impish
    Ability: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP, 252 Defense, 4 Attack
    Moves: Rapid Spin, Earthquake, Stealth Rock, Ice Shard

    -Skarmory w/Leftovers or Shed Shell
    Nature: Impish
    Ability: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP, 248 Defense, 8 Sp.Defense
    Moves: Brave Bird, Roost, Defog, Spikes/Stealth Rock/Whirlwind

    All them can set up hazards for you too.

    As for your special attacker, I wouldn't use Jolteon; it needs rain to be at its best. Roserade is nice, but it adds another Ice weakness to your team (particularly if you use Donphan), si it'd be better to not use it. Maybe use Gengar for that slot?

    -Gengar w/Black Sludge or Life Orb
    Nature: Timid
    Abiltiy: Levitate
    EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Sp.Attack, 4 HP
    Moves: Shadow Ball, Focus Blast, Sludge Bomb, Destiny Bond

    Not too sure about it, though. Also, Mega Gardevoir should probably use Calm Mind or Focus Blast instead of Thunderbolt, and Psyshock is better than Psychic in this case.

    I wouldn't add Milotic to the team; it doesn't have much that makes it stand out from other Water Pokemon. Vaporeon can fill in that role for you, as it provides Wish support for the team:
    -Wish
    -Protect
    -Scald
    -Ice Beam/Toxic/Roar
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 248 HP/252 Def/8 SDef
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Water Absorb

    Mega Gardevoir should look something like this:
    -Hyper Voice
    -Psyshock
    -Hidden Power (Ground)/Focus Blast
    -Taunt/Shadow Ball
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Gardevoirite
    Ability: Trace

      Dragonite to go with weakness policy because he dominates with it

        If this is for Single 6v6 then you definitely need a rapid spinner. The obvious one is Donphan, but sometimes it's nice to surprise your opponents and for that I would suggest Avalugg. With 184 in defense he has one of the highest in game, not to mention access to recover. The only downside is that Ice kind of sucks as a defensive typing, but you've got his weaknesses covered pretty wel, so he might work for you.

        As far as your Special I would suggest Gengar or Volcarona. Either of them will cover type you don't already have.

        Here are my set for these three:

        Avalugg w/Leftovers or Sitrus Berry
        Ability: Sturdy
        Evs: 252 HP/4 Atk/252 Def
        Nature: adamant
        - Rapid Spin
        - Recover
        - Avalanche
        - Earthquake


        Gengar w/ Black Sludge or Life Orb
        Ability: Levitate
        Evs: 4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe
        Nature: Timid
        - Substitue
        - Pain Split
        - Shadow Ball
        - Focus Blast/Sludge Bomb/Sludge Wave (again depending on what format)

        Volcarona w/ Leftovers or Lum Berry
        Ability: Flame Body
        Evs: 240 HP/252 Def/16 Spe
        Nature: Timid
        - Quiver Dance
        - Fiery Dance/Heat Wave
        - Bug Buzz
        - Roost/Morning Sun

        These have all work well for me. Let me know if you need any more clarification on these sets.

        Nature: adamant
        - Rapid Spin
        - Recover
        - Avalanche

        Avalugg is rather subpar, IMO, because of its common weaknesses. Excadrill is the better Rapid Spinner in all cases:
        -Earthquake
        -Iron Head/Rock Slide
        -Rapid Spin
        -Swords Dance/Stealth Rock
        Nature: Adamant/Jolly
        EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
        Item: Air Balloon/Leftovers
        Ability: Mold Breaker

        or
        -Earthquake
        -Iron Head
        -Rock Slide
        -Rapid Spin
        Nature: Adamant/Jolly
        EVs: 120 HP/136 Atk/252 SDef (Adamant) or 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe (Jolly)
        Item: Assault Vest (Adamant)/Choice Scarf (Jolly)
        Ability: Mold Breaker

        Fire Blast is preferred over Heat Wave; Heat Wave only sees use in doubles and VGC formats.
