Also, does anyone have advice for EV training a Vulpix, Absol, or Mareep? I'm not really into the competitive scene, but a friend wants to try out the multi battles.
www.smogon.com is a good way of putting your feet into the waters of serious Pokemon team building.
Under the Learn! heading click the Strategy Pokedex. Find your Pokemon of choice.
Under the 'base stats' of the Pokemon, click the tab (if there is one) to change the page to a higher tier (e.g. Never Used -> Rarely Used for Basculin).
Then look at what set up appeals to you.
Team Options & Additional Information is useful for finding out which Pokemon would support your primary Pokemon the best.
-However this only has data for Black/White 2. So doesn't have any new Pokemon, ignores stat changes of old Pokemon, ignores megaevolutions, ignores any new moves, and also uses the Move Tutor in Black/White 1/2 which then taught obscure moves to Pokemon (can't anymore. Aggron used to be able to use Rockhead, but not anymore).
However, if I want to find out if it's worth using a Megalite stone, I use www.serebii.net's X&Y Pokedex to compare stat differences and if the ability changes between the forms.
e.g. It's worth considering giving Aggron Aggronite over Leftover's because MegaAggron's ability reduces any super-effective moves to 25% of the original damage (making him a very hard Pokemon to faint whilst he has horrifying damage power). Because otherwise you're using Pokemon abilities which lets Aggron take no recoil damage (Aggron doesn't really need Double Edge) or endures being fainted on 1 hp (Megaggron's Ability is a more consistent effect)
