I have tried over and over again but I can't even defeat his maquerain and golissopod. My team consists of lvl 40 poliwrath lvl 34 decidueye lvl 34 ariados lvl 35 haunter lvl 35 10% zygarde and level 36 mimikyu

Just put a rock type move on zygarde and then use that to sweep through his team. Protect may also be useful from Golisopods first impression.

I can think of a few things that might help:

  • Teach Zygarde Stone Edge or Rock Slide via TM for use against Masquarain and Golisopod
  • Level up your Pokemon (if you can get at least five to ten levels higher than his Pokemon, you'll have a pretty decent chance of winning)
  • Use a super effective Z-Move, like the Rock type Continental Crush
  • Note that Rock type moves are 2x effective on Golisopod and 4x effective on Masquerain
  • Note that Electric and Flying type attacks are 2x effective against these two Pokémon as well
  • Be wary of Golisopod's Emergency Exit. You may want to prepare by using a Pokémon with moves that are super effective against both Golisopod and Masquerain, just in case he switches out (I'd recommend Rock type moves)
  • This isn't really relevant to defeating Golisopod or Masquerain, but Ariados and Haunter don't have very good stats. I'd switch them out at some point, if you get stronger Pokémon.

You can replace Poliwrath with a swift swim Wingull. By the time it reaches level 33, it should already have drizzle, air cutter, and scald (TM55 is at Brooklet Hill). Drizzle-boosted scald is good.
