I want to know the best spots for EV training on my Emerald. Since I always EV train on my Soul Silver, I was thinking maybe Emerald has better spots or something.
Please specify each stat and spot, and thanks!

Well, As Emerald is My Best Game:

SA: The Grass Next to the Volcano(I Forget its name). It's got Numels To Train SA

HP: Makuhitas in Granite Cave OR whismurs in Whishmur Cave

DEF: Granite Cave, Lower Floor, train On Arons

Speed: ANy Place with Zubats and Golbats, basically any cave...

SD: Baltoys in the desert OR Spoinks on the Volcano

Atk: Trapinchs in the desert OR ANy Place with Poochenyas/Mightyenas.

A better sa place us the rout with the ash in the grass where you find spinda(+1) & slugma(+1) & the occasionall skarmory(+2 defence). For sd fight tentacool almost anywhere you surf.

Special attack: There's unfortunately no good place for this in Emerald. The closest one I know is Route 113, with Slugma and Spinda, but there's still a small chance of encountering a Skarmory that doesn't give special attack EVs.
