HP Hotspot:

Attack Hotspot:

Special Attack Hotspot:

- What you're looking for: 90% chance of finding Psyduck (grants 1 Special Attack EV), 10% chance of finding Golduck (grants 2 Special Attack EVs)

Special Defense Hotspots:

- What you're looking for: 100% chance of finding Magikarp (grants 1 Speed EV)

*Mantine can only be found on Route 41, as a HeartGold exclusive.

Finally, it has been brought to my attention that wild Ditto can also serve as handy EV training. Thanks go to hotdogturtle, who first mentioned this technique to me:

Ditto copies the EV reward (the number of EVs granted upon defeat) of the Pokemon it Transforms into. So, if a wild Ditto Transforms into a player's Dragonite, defeating the Ditto in that Transformed state will grant 3 Attack EVs, just like an actual Dragonite would. It's therefore possible to exploit this quirk by putting the Pokemon you plan on EV training first in your party (remember to use Power Items and Pokerus if possible; these will be discussed in a bit). When you find a Ditto, switch to a Pokemon in your party that has the EV reward you want your first Pokemon to gain, and defeat the Ditto.

For example, suppose I have an Absol I want to EV train in Attack. I equip a Power Bracer (again, discussed later), put it in my front party slot, and put a Dragonite into my party as well. When I find a Ditto, I switch Absol out and send Dragonite in. Ditto will Transform into Dragonite; at this point, I'll defeat the Ditto to gain Attack EVs for Absol! This is a handy trick for speeding up the EV training process, as most Pokemon with high EV rewards are either rare or impossible to find in the wild.

Route 47 has a 41% chance of encountering Ditto, and there's a chance of having a daily swarm of them in the same location, increasing their appearance rate even more.
