In X and Y, a lot of things are easier than in previous games. EV training is one of them. Let’s take a look at how we can get the most out of EV training:
What are EVs?? EVs, or Effort Values, are awarded at the end of a battle just like Exp. points and they help the Pokémon’s stats increase. Each Pokémon gives a certain number of EVs in a specific stat(s) when defeated.
Super Training does the exact same thing. You can use Super Training if you wish, but training with hordes is faster and easier
What you will need:
A Pokémon with Sweet Scent, to ensure the encounter is a horde
Pokérus, to double the EVs the Pokémon receives 
the proper Power Item for the stat you want to train, to add even more EVs
You can do this without a Power Item or Pokérus, but it will take longer
How does this give more EVs?? Because you’re defeating 5 Pokémon in the horde, your Pokémon get x5 the EVs. Pokérus doubles the amount of EVs the Pokémon receives. The Power Item awards 4 EVs in its stat after every battle regardless of the Pokémon defeated. This can result in 50 EVs gained from the battle
Let’s look at an example: a Wingull horde appears! Wingull give 1 Speed EV when defeated

so that’s ( ( 1 + 4 ) x 2 ) x 5 = 50 Speed EVs
If you have Exp. Share ON, all Pokémon in your party receive full EVs even if they didn’t participate in battle. This way, you can EV train multiple Pokémon at once, and/or can lead with a high level Pokémon that can quickly defeat the horde. 
»Here’s a handy dandy list of hordes and the EVs they give!«
Pokémon can have a max of 510 EVs, with a max of 252 in a single stat. For competitive use, trained Pokémon usually have 252 EVs in two stats and 4 in another. 
Keeping track of EVs: You can keep track of a Pokémon’s EVs in the Super Training screen: 

When you notice that the plot doesn’t move any more, the stat has max EVs and you can move on to the next one. The Lv. 1 Training Regimens or medium Training Bags are handy for getting 4 EVs. There are also various sites and phone apps that you can use to keep track of your EVs if you’re using a spread other than 252/252/4
If you’re unsure about what EV spread to use, you can always check Smogon (or a quick Google search) to give you some ideas! You can ask me as well, but my suggestions may not always be the best
