Say I want 250 EV in one stat. If a certain pokemon gives 1 EV does that mean I need to defeat 250 of them?

Yes, but you need to give 252 evs in a stat not 250. There are items and Pokerus that helps shorten the numbers of battles.

why do I need to go to 252? Is it just the way that the numbers add up?

Yes. For every 4 evs it is one point in the stat. 250 does not divide by 4 evenly as 252 divides evenly into 63. That increases the stat by 63 points. You can do any amount of evs as long as it divides by four.

Thanks so much for the help! None of the websites I went to said anything about the 4:1 ratio

Hope you found everything you're looking for here! There's a guide to EV Training on PC here (although the Pokemon areas are different in B2W2, the mechanics are the same), and if you have any further questions feel free to ask in the quick questions thread in the section for the game you're playing. Or alternatively just shoot me a PM. :)
