I've been working on a team for a little bit. But I can't find a 6th Pokemon. Any ideas?
If you want to make any team suggestions I'm open to those too!
Please help...

Adamant Nature
- Darkest Lariat
- Fake Out

- Flare Blitz

This is for VGC19 Ultra, right?
Yes it is
Incineroar is trash offense in this mode. Try
Incineroar @ Figy Berry/ AV
236 HP/ 36 Def/ 236 Sp Def
Ability: Intimidate
Careful Nature
-Fake Out
-U Turn
-Knock Off/Roar
-Flare Blitz

Also walk me throgh the ev spreads please
Tapu Koko's EVs are to maximise offense stuffs
Salamence is so it can take a decent hit, while still doing damage
Groudon is so it can be bulky and do damage at the same time
And Lunala is so it can hit fast and hard
(Did I do this right?)
What exactly does groudons and salamances evs ensure?

Also why hp ice>natures madness or protect?

In VGC, pretty much every Pokemon has protect, apart from incineroar.
Max speed and Attack Incineroar wont let you survive much hits.
You dont have much speed control so maybe add tailwind to salamance, and a trick room setter as your last mon.
Your salamance will pretty much die, since not enough speed or bulk. The world champion had a good specially defenisve salamance spread I can show you,
Stone edge is not very helpful on Groudon.
Focus blast is not ver helpful on Lunala.
You have 0 Xern counters, so maybe add roar to groudon/salamance/Incineroar, and gyro ball trick room stakataka can also help against Xern.

Also Incineroar should be running a defensive set, as the items you are giving it are defensive items. Also 252 spe and 252 atk dont help at all.

A standard Incin spread is
Incineroar @ Figy Berry/ AV
236 HP/ 36 Def/ 236 Sp Def
Ability: Intimidate
Careful Nature
-Fake Out
-U Turn
-Snarl/Darkest lariat/Knock Off/Roar
-Flare Blitz

Also what do Groudons and Salamances evs do?

I'm pretty sure snarl is better than knock off and roar. It lowers both opponents' special attack and makes Incineroar even tankier than it already is.
@sumwun ur right
Yeah, I would like to see that Salamence EV spread. Also, thanks everyone for helping out! I will make all the necessary changes.
