Recently i got interested in the competitive scene and wanted to build a team to suit my needs.
The idea behind my team is a baton pass from scolipede to mawile with other pokemon to support and fill the holes in my team. Currently my team is:

Scolipede

Evs: Speed and HP
Moves: Baton Pass, Protect, MegaHorn, Swords Dance
Focus Sash

Mawile
Adamant
6IV
Evs: HP and Attack
Moves: Iron Head, Play rough, Stone Edge, Sucker Punch
Mawilite

Starmie
Timid
5IV - Missing Attack
Evs: Special attack and Speed
Moves: Recover, Rapid Spin, Hydro Pump, Psyshock
Life orb

Infernape
Jolly
5IV - Missing Special Attack
Evs: Attack and Speed
Moves: Thunder Punch, Fire Punch, Power up punch, Close combat
Choice Band

Milotic
Calm
5IV - Missing attack
Evs: HP and Defense
Moves: Recover, Hydro Pump, Ice beam, Captivate
Leftovers

Skarmory
Impish
6IV
Evs: Hp and Defense
Moves: Spikes, Whirlwind, Brave bird, Roost
Rocky Helmet

Any help would be appreciated :)

Abilities please!
Change Stone Edge or Iron Head on Mawile to Swords Dance.

You have 3 weaknesses to Electric type and no resistances, I would get a ground type, like Torterra! :D

Also, your Starmie is confused in what role it has:

Has it a rapid spinner role?
Not with that item...

Is it a sweeper?
What... With rapid spin!?!

If I were you, and if you do want a rapid spinner; I would replace your Starmie with Excadrill, or something more reliable. I just chose Excadrill because it gave you a much needed Electric immunity.

Finally, since Stamie looks like it is a rapid spinner, where is your special sweeper? Since Mawile is already Adamant natured, why not make Infernape
a Special Sweeper? Infernape is better at physically sweeping due to it's better physical movepool and hidden ability: Iron Fist. However, a Special set can still be run so I will leave an answer on that aswell as Excadrill's movepool.
Excadrill @ Air Balloon
Ability: Mold Breaker
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Attack / 252 HP / 4 Speed

 - Rapid Spin
 - Earthquake
 - Rock Slide
 - Swords Dance

Infernape @ Lum Berry
Ability: Blaze
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SP Attack / 252 Speed / 4 HP

 - Calm Mind
 - Grass Knot
 - Focus Blast
 - Flamethrower / Fire Blast

I'd say this combined with my comment above is a pretty good answer! :p

Thank you so much for your help! I never really noticed that my team was weak to electricty, i thought my mawile covered that.
Looks like i need to go back to breeding. Thanks again for your help :D
