1. Flash Fire would be better.
2. There are 126 EVs unaccounted for.

I have a few suggestions. :)

  • I would go Fire Blast > Flamethrower for the extra wall breaking power.
  • The EV spread is not complete. New spread: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 SDef
  • Neutral Natures are never good. I would go Timid in this situation for the extra speed.
  • The ability/trait should be Flash Fire to get the boost when the foe uses a fire type move which can be devastating for the opponent.
  • A good item would be Life Orb to boost the power.

Hope this helps a bit.
