Need to make some Pokemon relearn some moves.

Dowsing Machine will pick some up on the beach (Route 8). I think also Rock Smash, but so far there's only been Ethers and Dwebbles...
EDIT: Yup you can find Heart Scales from Rock Smash as well.

In Ambrette town, there is a path behind the Pokémon Centre, go to the right of it and you will find one Heart Scale.

In Cyllage City, go south along route 8 until you reach the stairs. Turn on the Dowsing Machine and a Heart Scale should be found around there.

Also, after getting the old rod from the guy in Ambrette Aquarium, go to the beach on route 8 and use it; all you will encounter is Luvdisc' (many of which are holding Heart Scales) - catch them or use Covet / Thief on them to obtain Heart Scales.
Note: Make sure the Pokémon using Covet / Thief has no held item when you are thieving the Heart Scales or else you will not obtain any.

Furthermore, smashing rocks (by using Rock Smash) is an additional method of finding Heart Scales.

Don't forget thief is a good way to get them off Luvdisc
So is Covet. Eevees that you can catch on Route 10 learn that move at Lv 23.
Thanks I just taught my Zygarde Land's Wrath thanks to this!
Lands Wrath doesn't take the opponents item like thief/covet
bobcat Shadow meant he could help his/her Zygarde remember the move Land's Wrath thanks to a Heart Scale.

You can get them by fishing on route 8. The Luvdiscs has a heart scale. They are pretty common.

There is one other way that hasn't yet been mentioned that is useful: you can get Heart Scales via the Global Link. Collect enough medals to unlock the Heart Scale item at the PokéMileage Club's PokéMileage Shop, where you can buy Heart Scales for 100 PokéMiles each. That's handy if you do a lot of trading, link-trading, or Wonder Trading.
