What is your opinion on this team?

Not many of your Pokemon are particularly viable. Grookey is a better physical Grass type than Rowlet, and Clobbopus/Venipede can't really do a lot. Mienfoo is much better than the former, and Dewpider is a much more worthwhile Bug type than the latter (though Joltik might fit your team better).
Yes, grookey is a better physical grass type, but I'm running Long Reach on Rowlet, and Venipede is quite good due to pretty high physical bulk and speed, and venipede's eviolite makes it even more physically bulky and it also boosts sp. def which venipede doesn't have that much sp. stats, and clobbopus has quite high physical stats, but very low speed, and a bit high sp. def and I boosted sp. attack, and litwick has great special attack, along with Sandile which has great physical attack and speed, and I'll replace bulbasaur's assault vest for a sitrus berry, and that's about it.
Long Reach doesn't inherently make Rowlet a better Grass type than Grookey. Grookey has auto Terrain + Grassy Glide for STAB. It also gets access to Swords Dance, Knock Off to soften up Eviolite users and neutralize Life Orb threats, Drain Punch for reliable recovery and Ferroseed, and U-turn for pivoting. Grookey can just do a lot more than Rowlet, and there's not much point in using the latter over the former.

Venipede is not good. Joltik is a faster attacker and Dewpider is better for defense, because while Venipede can have higher stats than both of them, it doesn't have a good enough moveset to make it work. Its best Bug move is Skitter Smack, which isn't great. It *does* get Poison Jab and Spikes, but other than that, its moveset is pretty shallow.

Mienfoo is the only Pokemon in S Rank right now though? I know it just sounds like I'm telling you to copy paste the most popular Pokemon of the format into your team, but there's no legitimate reason to use Clobbopus over Mienfoo.

...And that'll do it for now, because I have no idea what you're trying to say with the rest of your comment. Please try to take some of my criticism into account if you want to win.
