By far the best place is the Old Chateau, where it is 100% Gastly (1 EV) or Haunter (2 EVs) as you walk around.


Surf in Ilex Forest to find Psyduck (1 EV) and Golduck (2 EVs).

Also if you are at the old chateau night (change the time of day if lazy) and you have any gen 3 games in the ds as well you can fight gengars.
HG/SS: Sprout Tower at nigth - 95% Gastlies
You can also find Psyducks and Golducks in the pond (surf required as well) in the route right above Goldenrod City, but slightly higher leveled.  (quicker level up?)
in Pt my pokemon are too high level for the old chateau so I train at route 221 with roselia and girafarig for 2 evs each.

Black / White:

Litwick 1 EV
Elgyem 1 EV
(lower floors are more likely to be Litwicks, while higher are more likely to be Elgyems)

Black/White 2 - Special Attack spots

Celestial Tower 1F - Litwick (1 EV), Elgyem (1 EV). Avoid higher floors due to Golbats.
