Which pokemon get the most EV points and what type ,attack,def ect.
In this article you can see which types of EVs each Pokemon gives out.

Is there a limmit to the amount of EVs on one pokemon?
Yes, 510 is maximum amount of EVs a Pokemon can have. 255 is the most EVs a Pokemon can have per stat.

How many EVs = a stat point?
4 EVs gives out 1 stat point. As a result, only 508 EVs can be used instead of 510. 510 isn't divisible by 4, so the extra 2 EVs make no difference on a Pokemon's stats. The same goes for 255; 3 out of those 255 EVs are useless. If you were to max out two stats with EVs, the best way to do that is use a 252 / 252 / 4 EV spread instead of 255 / 255. With the first spread you get 4 extra EVs to use on another stat.

Like say if I defeated maybe 100 geodude would I get 100 points added to my defence?
You are correct, assuming the Pokemon doesn't have Pokerus or any of the EV-enhancing items.

You can find more information in our Guides & Resources. If you have any more questions, please ask them in the B2W2 Quick Questions thread or in the other Pokemon gaming forums depending on which game you have questions about.
