My Trick Room VGC team is walled by Aegislash and destroyed by Mega Mawile. Are there any Pokemon that can help take out those two and also set up Trick Room?

The easiest way to deal with this is Chandelure.
Although his typing is weak to both a bulky spread will take down both and can set up TR.
The only thing is that it can't take up vs Aegislash Shield if it uses Heat Wave so I choose Overheat with some SAtk investment since it doesn't take out Aegislash out with Fire Blast and full investment:

148+ SpA Chandelure Overheat vs. 252 HP / 76 SpD Aegislash-Shield: 168-198 (100.5 - 118.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

The Final spread and idea for TR:

Chandelure @ Focus Sash/ Colbur Berry/Sitrus Berry/Leftovers/White Herb
EVs: 104 HP / 156 Def / 148 SAtk / 100 SDef
- Shadow Ball
- Overheat
- Trick Room
- Protect

It OHKOes both Mawile and 252 HP/76 SDef Aegislash-Shield with Overheat at 0.

It lives:

252 Atk Parental Bond Mega Kangaskhan Sucker Punch vs. 104 HP / 156 Def Chandelure: 123-147 (83.1 - 99.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

52 Atk Huge Power Mega Mawile Sucker Punch vs. 104 HP / 156 Def Chandelure: 124-146 (83.7 - 98.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252 Atk Garchomp Earthquake vs. 104 HP / 156 Def Chandelure: 116-140 (78.3 - 94.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252 SpA Salamence Hydro Pump vs. 104 HP / 100 SpD Chandelure: 110-130 (74.3 - 87.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252+ SpA Kingdra Muddy Water vs. 104 HP / 100 SpD Chandelure: 102-120 (68.9 - 81%) -- guaranteed 2HKO (Outside of Rain)

You have to watch out for Hydreigon and 252 Adamant Mawiles though:
252 SpA Hydreigon Dark Pulse vs. 104 HP / 100 SpD Chandelure: 132-156 (89.1 - 105.4%) -- 25% chance to OHKO

252+ Atk Huge Power Mega Mawile Sucker Punch vs. 104 HP / 156 Def Chandelure: 160-190 (108.1 - 128.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Although Intimidate solves this for Mawile:

-1 252+ Atk Huge Power Mega Mawile Sucker Punch vs. 104 HP / 156 Def Chandelure: 106-126 (71.6 - 85.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
