Well, Milotic is more of a special attack user. Just compare the two stats:
Base Attack: 60 / Base Special Attack: 100
Milotic's moveset should be...

Milotic @ Leftovers
Trait: Marvel Scale
EVs: 200 SAtk / 56 SDef / 252 HP
Modest Nature
- Scald/Surf
- Recover
- Toxic
- Ice Beam

Much better Pokemon using Flame Orb and Facade are

  • Heracross (Guts + Burn = Awesomeness)
  • Machamp (Guts + Flame Orb = awesomeness)
  • SWELLOW (Guts + Flame Orb + STABfacade = Wow...)

Oh, is this competitive? I wasn't sure, but I'll add EVs and nature :)

Don't. It will hardly do anything because of its 60 base attack AND the flame orb lowers attack .It needs the ability guts and a good attack to make a flame orb worth it. Not only that, but if you use a toxic orb you will receive more damage from the toxic orb than you will probably be getting off on the opponent. For an offensive move try scald, surf, or hydro pump.

I would recommend a Conkeldurr for the move Facade (if it has the ability Guts and is holding a Flame Orb). :)
