PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

After a week of breeding Tyrunt (in Pokémon Y), I've finally got a shiny one, male and has perfect IVs except for special attack, but I'm still rethinking of breeding again. I'll evolve it, and these are my questions:

Ability: Rock Head
I'm pretty sure about this, so please don't suggest Strong Jaws.

Nature: Adamant (+Atk, -Sp Atk)/Jolly (+Spd, -Sp Atk) ?
As I've typed above, I think I'll breed again, but the one I have is a Jolly one. The problem is Tyrantrum's base speed is not really that high, so I'm leaning towards Adamant and breed it again. :(

EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, Spd 252 ? (Other suggestions, please)

1. Head Smash (Rock Head ftw!)
2. Earthquake (Coverage Move) (Others?)
3. Iron Tail/Iron Head (For those pesky Fairies and also for Ice types) (Others?)
4. Dragon Dance (EM)/Hone Claws (DD for the Jolly one and HC for Head Smash and Iron Tail's accuracy)

Tyrantrum is my one of my favourite Pokémon, so I'm pretty sure I'm gonna use him almost always in competitive battling, haha. I'll also transfer him to my Pokémon Moon.

Thank you for all your suggestions!

Ability: Rock Head
EVs: 252 Def, 252 Atk, 4 Spd
Nature: Adamant
Head Smash(corrected)
Dragon Tail (STAB) or Dragon Claw (STAB), or keep earthquake if you want
Iron Head
Dragon Dance(doesnt need hone claws since iron head, and you need to raise your speed or if you want hone claws you can change iron head to iron tail and EV Changes to 4 Def, 252 Atk, and 252 Spd)

Rock head is a move?
i edited it oops xD
Thank you for your suggestions! I think I'll go with your suggested EVs & nature, and breed again. Is Dragon STAB still great? Since the arrival of Fairies I think it lost its charm, but I'll think about it, and still breed with DD so I'll still have a back-up plan before transferring to Moon. =)
