In Sword, I'm pretty sure you can get max EVs just by using a lot of vitamins. You don't need to battle anyone.

Every 4 EVs obtained in a particular stat equals one more point for that stat, by the time that Pokémon reaches level 100. At low levels you may not see all the points added straight away. If your Pokémon is at a high level you will see a lot of additional points going on to the appropriate stats at each level up.

As sumwun said, you can just max EVs easily by using lots of Vitamins (can be bought for 2BP at the battle shop) and the EV wings. Also, you can use the Power Items, Power Weight (HP), Power Bracer (Attack), Power Belt (Defense), Power Lens (Sp. Attack), Power Band (Sp. Defense), or Power Anklet (Speed). These Power Items give you 8 extra EVs of the respective stat once you defeat a Pokemon.

There's also the Hammerlocke University thingies (Poke Jobs), you can EV train with them.

I'll select the answer, but I want to add some clarity to it. The reason the stats don't appear to change at level 1 is that the amount of EVs required for a stat change is very high at level 1. As the Pokemon levels up, its stats will be recalculated, and the EVs will have a larger nominal (but not proportional) effect, as the number of EVs required for 1 extra stat point decreases relative to level.
EVs always contribute roughly the same proportion of your Pokemon's stats, assuming level is the only variable that is changing. At level 1, the stat numbers are small; and combined with rounding, that can make it feel like the EVs are doing nothing. But they are there, and they will have their intended effect.
