Scared sword. Great choice of move. Could u give us ur method planned as using slaking is risky play. Mystical fire is normally used for hatterene as it hits super effective steel which resists it's dual stab.

I will try to help you. I am also assuming you want to play hyper offense or bulky offense so I will try to adjust your team to do that.

This is pretty good, however most Pokemon in AG and Ubers resist Poison and Grass moves and not to mention Dusk-Mane-Necrozma walls this set badly. Also if you are going for a sleep set, I recommend utilizing leech seed and more bulk, preferably on defense or HP. Maybe you could get rid of Energy Ball.

This is ok I guess but the problem is Dusk-Mane-Necrozma is meant to be pure bulk or bulky offense. Here's a set you could use.

Dusk-Mane-Necrozma @ Weakness-Policy
Ability: Prism Armor
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Sp.Def
Nature: Adamant
Moves: - Sunsteel Strike
- Trick Room / Photon Geyser
- Dragon Dance / Swords dance
- Earthquake

Pretty cool set, but definitely use Mystical Fire to have something against steel types. You should remove Shadow Ball for it, but otherwise it is fine just watch out for Eternatus and Zacian.

First, get rid of retaliate for giga impact. The recharge turn is lost with Truant and it does more damage whether your ally died or not. To be honest, if you need a really good wallbreaker then use Darmanitan-Galar. It is way less shaky without truant and overall more power because of gorilla tactics. Zen Mode is also good but kind of situational. Here is a set in case you do replace it.

Galar-Darmanitan @ Choice Band
Ability: Gorilla Tactics
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe/ 4 Sp.Def
Nature: Adamant / Jolly
Moves: - Icicle Crash / Ice Punch
- Flare Blitz
- Earthquake
- U-Turn / Stone Edge

Ok this is pretty good but once again like Dusk-Mane-Necrozma it is kind of a bulky sweeper. However this actually is fine because of the surprise factor and you can pick up unexpected KOs with this set. Another option could be bulk up but that's only if you want to. Overall good.

Very good and I dont think there's much to change except maybe getting rid of Sacred Sword for Fire Fang in case Corviknight appears.

Hope this helps.

If you have Incineroar, why do you need fire coverage on Zacian
and what if the Corviknight Bulk Ups/Iron Defenses? Then Sacred Sword would easily be better
This is mostly because after using Swords Dance, you wouldn't want to switch and fire fang at least 2 hit koes if it's a switch in without swords dance. You do have point since a sacred sword would be better after an iron defense or bulk up but I don't see a reason to switch Zacian in if you have incineroar remaining anyways. Both are good options  so any would be fine.
