My Delphox knows Flamethrower, Psychic, Grass Knot, and I change the last move every time it wants to learn an new move so that I can make it relearn that move if I want it to. Anyway, I have maxed out Sp. Att, but what stat should I use my remaining EVs on?
(If this question should've been asked in Battle Subway, I'm sorry, but I'm not asking anybody to rate my team, so...)

No, you are at the right section.

The last move should always be Calm Mind or Shadow Ball, depending on the Delphox you want.

Cam Mind Delphox

Like the title implies it, Calm Mind Delphox will usually use Calm Mind six times, then proceed to sweep.

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Speed / 4 Def.

ScarFox / SpecsFox

ScarFox is better because Delphox already have an excellent special attack, thus you will have to work on the Speed. SpecsFox can be used with Sticky Web support very effectively, though.

EVs: 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Speed / 4 Sp.Def

Other variations

The only one I can think of is Magician Fire Gem, to steal an item. Here again the EVs remain the same as for SpecsFox / ScarFox.

As to properly answer, max out the speed (252 Speed / 252 SAtk) and 4 Sp.Def as well, or stop using Delphox, as Mega-Houndoom and Alakazam outclasses it as Fire and Psychic special sweepers, respectively. More informations can be found on theses three pages.

I hope this helps.

I thought there weren't any Gems in X/Y…
Thanks! That clears things up.
As for gems, there actually is the normal gem, but any consumable item, like the weakness policy, does work for the magician steal.
