    So I am trying to build a competitive'ish team. Mostly to fight online and harass my roommate with awesomeness.

    I am mostly doing breeding and now have a new pool of pokemon to work with thanks to pokebank and some friends giving me their pokemon games.

    I've scrounged together the IV bred pokemon from the games which gives me some that are ready now.

    Arcanine LvL100

    Mawile LvL63 (Still leveling, but her EV's are done pretty much.)
    31/31/31/31/31/31
    HP 188/DEF 131/SP.ATK 83/SP.DEF 93/SPD 88

    HP 252/ATK 122/DEF 126/SP.ATK 369/SP.DEF 226/SPD 372

    Gengar LvL100 (I have 4 of these so I can set up different move sets. Only 2 are at 100 though)
    31/31/31/31/31/31
    HP 263/ATK 149/DEF 156/SP.ATK 358/SP.DEF 186/SPD 350

    Sableye LvL100
    31/31/31/31/31/X
    HP 304/ATK 167/DEF 216/SP.ATK 166/SP.DEF 220/SPD 136
    Recover, Will-O-Wisp, Taunt, Night Shade

    Muk LvL100
    31/31/31/31/31/31
    HP 414/ATK 339/DEF 186/SP.ATK 149/SP.DEF 237/SPD 136
    Substitute, Focus Punch, Poison Jab, Ice Punch

    I also have a Leafeon a friend gave me, he said she was all 31, but haven't checked yet. I am currently working on breeding out a perfect Goomy, Honedge, Pumkaboo (I just like pumkaboo), Noibat, and Shuppet.

    So far I've just collected and bred pokemon I like, though I want to build a functioning team, so I'd like some feed back on pokemon I NEED to form a rounded team. I'd like to keep Gengar on my team though, it was a ♥♥♥♥♥ to make him from scratch.

    There seriously is no need to say your Pokemon's IVs and stats. Only natures and EVs matter in this forum.

    Arcanine honestly isn't that good; sure, it has a wide move pool, but there are Fire Pokemon who can do its job better, i.e. Talonflame, Volcarona, Entei and Heatran:

    Talonflame:
    -Swords Dance
    -Flare Blitz
    -Brave Bird
    -Roost
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb/Sharp Beak/Sky Plate
    Ability: Gale Wings

    or
    -Flare Blitz
    -Brave Bird
    -U-turn
    -Tailwind/Roost
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Band/Sharp Beak/Sky Plate
    Ability: Gale Wings

    or
    -Bulk Up
    -Brave Bird
    -Roost
    -Taunt/Substitute
    Nature: Careful
    EVs: 248 HP/184 SDef/76 Spe
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Gale Wings

    Volcarona:
    -Quiver Dance
    -Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
    -Bug Buzz
    -Hidden Power (Ground/Rock)/Giga Drain/Psychic
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb/Lum Berry
    Ability: Flame Body

    or
    -Quiver Dance
    -Fiery Dance
    -Bug Buzz
    -Roost
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 240 HP/252 Def/16 Spe
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Flame Body

    Entei:
    -Sacred Fire
    -Extreme Speed
    -Stone Edge
    -Bulldoze
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Band

    Heatran:
    -Lava Plume
    -Protect
    -Roar/Earth Power
    -Toxic/Stealth Rock/Will-o-Wisp
    Nature: Calm
    EVs: 248 HP/8 Def/252 SDef
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Flash Fire

    or
    -Fire Blast
    -Earth Power
    -Hidden Power (Ice)/Stealth Rock
    -Will-o-Wisp/Toxic
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Air Balloon/Leftovers
    Ability: Flash Fire

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

    or
    -Magma Storm
    -Toxic
    -Taunt
    -Protect
    Nature: Calm
    EVs: 248 HP/252 SDef/8 Spe
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Flash Fire

    There are better Electric Pokemon out there than Jolteon, like Wash Rotom. Jolteon's move pool is rather shallow:

    Wash Rotom:
    -Volt Switch
    -Hydro Pump
    -Will-o-Wisp
    -Pain Split/Rest
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 248 HP/216 Def/44 Spe
    Item: Leftovers

    or
    -Volt Switch
    -Hydro Pump
    -Thunderbolt/Pain Split
    -Will-o-Wisp
    Nature: Modest
    EVs: 228 HP/60 SAtk/220 Spe
    Item: Leftovers

    or
    -Volt Switch
    -Hydro Pump
    -Thunderbolt/Hidden Power (Ice/Fire)
    -Trick
    Nature: Timid/Modest
    EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Scarf

    I don't think Mega Mawile needs Super Fang. It's already crazy strong enough that its moves can strip off more than half of the HP of most opponents, if not OHKOing them:
    -Play Rough
    -Sucker Punch
    -Fire Fang/Iron Head/Swords Dance
    -Swords Dance/Substitute
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 132 HP/252 Atk/124 Spe
    Item: Mawilite
    Ability: Intimidate

    or
    -Rest
    -Sleep Talk
    -Play Rough
    -Foul Play
    Nature: Impish
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
    Item: Mawilite
    Ability: Intimidate

    Alakazam is best played as an all-out attacker:
    -Psychic/Psyshock
    -Shadow Ball
    -Focus Blast
    -Hidden Power (Ice/Fire)/Dazzling Gleam
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb/Focus Sash
    Ability: Magic Guard

    Mega Gengar can perform Perish-trapping better, but Gengarite is banned in the standard (OU) environment; it's okay to use in Wi-Fi battles, though. Since your Mega slot is taken up by Mawile, don't bother with Mega Gengar; instead, use Gengar's regular form:
    -Shadow Ball
    -Sludge Bomb/Thunderbolt
    -Focus Blast
    -Destiny Bond
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb

    or
    -Substitute
    -Shadow Ball
    -Disable/Pain Split/Will-o-Wisp
    -Will-o-Wisp/Pain Split/Focus Blast
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Black Sludge/Life Orb

    or
    -Shadow Ball
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Focus Blast
    -Trick/Thunderbolt/Hidden Power (Ice)
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Scarf

    Sableye should use Calm or Careful with this:
    -Taunt
    -Will-o-Wisp
    -Recover
    -Foul Play/Knock Off
    Nature: Calm/Careful
    EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 SDef
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Prankster

    Muk is seriously outclassed by other Pokemon. It has a wide move pool, sure, but I think that there are other Pokemon who are much more useful in its place. Instead, make do with a Rapid Spinner/Defogger to control your entry hazards:
    Starmie:
    -Hydro Pump/Surf
    -Thunderbolt/Psyshock
    -Ice Beam
    -Rapid Spin
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
    Ability: Natural Cure

    or
    -Scald
    -Rapid Spin
    -Psyshock/Ice Beam/Thunderbolt
    -Recover
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 248 HP/32 Def/4 SAtk/224 Spe
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Natural Cure

    Excadrill:
    -Earthquake
    -Rock Slide/Iron Head
    -Rapid Spin
    -Swords Dance/Stealth Rock
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers/Air Balloon/Chople Berry
    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

    Mandibuzz:
    -Foul Play
    -Roost
    -Defog
    -Toxic/Whirlwind/Knock Off
    Nature: Bold/Impish
    EVs: 248 HP/252 Def/8 SDef
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Overcoat

    Crobat:
    -Brave Bird
    -Defog
    -Roost
    -Taunt/Toxic
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 168 HP/136 Atk/4 SDef/200 Spe
    Item: Black Sludge
    Ability: Infiltrator

    Tentacruel:
    -Scald
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Rapid Spin
    -Toxic/Knock Off
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 252 HP/224 Def/32 Spe
    Item: Black Sludge
    Ability: Liquid Ooze

    Also consider a hazard setter on the team, like these:
    Ferrothorn:
    -Stealth Rock/Spikes
    -Leech Seed
    -Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave
    -Power Whip/Protect
    Nature: Relaxed
    EVs: 252 HP/48 Def/208 SDef
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Iron Barbs

    Skarmory:
    -Roost
    -Whirlwind
    -Stealth Rock/Spikes/Brave Bird
    -Defog/Brave Bird
    Nature: Bold/Impish
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef or 252 HP/16 Def/240 SDef
    Item: Leftovers/Rocky Helmet
    Ability: Sturdy

    or
    -Spikes
    -Roost
    -Whirlwind
    -Taunt/Brave Bird
    Nature: Bold/Impish
    EVs: 252 HP/184 Def/72 Spe
    Item: Leftovers/Rocky Helmet
    Ability: Sturdy

      I just got home so am going to bed, but thanks for all the info! I'll pick through what I have and use this to build a better team. The ones I put up are not my team they're just the best I currently have. Last night I spent 8 hours during work just breeding Goodras XD I got them to 5/6 stats at 31 steadily, just tryin to find a good build on it. Any suggestions? Mostly they're Quiet Natures.

      Goodra is one of the best Assault Vest tanks out there:

      -Fire Blast
      -Thunderbolt/Sludge Bomb/Dragon Tail
      -Earthquake/Dragon Tail
      Nature: Quiet/Sassy
      EVs: 248 HP/252 SAtk/8 SDef
      Item: Assault Vest
      Ability: Gooey/Sap Sipper
