Best answer

DIAMOND/PEARL/PLATINUM spots:

The best place is probably Iron Island, with Geodude (1 EV), Graveler (2 EVs), Onix (1 EV) and Steelix (2 EVs). There is also Oreburgh Mine, which is good because it has low-level pokemon.

HEARTGOLD/SOULSILVER spots:

Route 45: Geodude (1 EV) and Graveler (2 EVs), plus Gligar (1 EV) or Skarmory (2 EVs) depending on version.

Black/White 2 - Defense spots

Chargestone Cave - Nosepass (1 EV), Klink (1 EV), Ferroseed (1 EV).
Avoid the rest (note: Boldore gives 1 Def and 1 Atk EV).

Haven't found anywhere with all Defense Pokemon yet.

I would suggest Lostlorn Forest. There are a lot of Swadloon (2 EV) and some Venipede (1 EV).

Need to avoid the Cottonee that gives Speed EV (Black 2) and the Petilil which provide SAtk EV (White 2).
