Final move slot for VGC salamence ?

Hi guys, ive been testing a salamence on showdown for the upcoming vgc and its going surprisingly well.

Salamence @ Assault Vest
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 8 Spd / 252 SAtk / 248 SDef
Mild Nature
IVs: 31 in each/30 SAtk
- Draco Meteor
- Flamethrower
- Hidden Power Electric
- Rock Slide

I've got hidden power electric and its helped me once against a gyrados but thats a pretty rare situation to be in, even less so if the gyrados mega evolves. I just don't know what to put in that slot. Highest possible candidates I can think of are brick break or aerial ace which might help me deal with mega venusaur better.

Also if anyone has any ev suggestions, I feel I've invested to heavily in special attack and that might be overkill and perhaps I could spread the evs more into attack as well.

Thanks guys

I think the standard set is modest scarfed salamence, 252 in special attack and speed with moves Draco meteor, fire blast, hydro pump and dragon pulse. Swap out fire blast for flamethrower if you want accuracy,

Thanks Lightning Ace, im trying to be surprising though and I felt I was losing too much with the scarf. Ive probably done over 200+ battles and the ones im losing is when something unexpected happens, if people are expecting an easy ko off any special type move then they wont get it on this salamence.

ForgottenTime, not sure if you're just saying it's crap because its not the standard or not lol
