All your Pokemon gained EVs when they battled the various in game Pokemon (for instance, Patrat and Lillipup give 1 Attack EV each). You can't actually see the EVs. You can't reduce the EVs in any way except by the Pomeg, Tamato, Kelpsy, Hondew, Qualot and Grepa berries; however, they can only be obtained through the Dream World or doing a spin egg trade with 5 people.

And on with the rate:

Serperior: since it's Adamant, how about this to take advantage of its power?:
-Leaf Blade
-Dragon Tail
-Return/Rock Smash (lol)
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Miracle Seed

Scolipede needs Rock Slide and Megahorn over Steamroller and X-Scissor (the former for coverage and the latter for power). You can have S Scolipede relearn Megahorn from the reminder girl in Mistralton, though it will cost you a Heart Scale. (EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe)

Once again, Emboar uses the same EV spread as the first 2 Pokemon. It can also use Flame Charge to fix its low Speed:
-Flame Charge
-Flare Blitz
-Brick Break
-Wild Charge/Stone Edge/Grass Knot
Nature: Hasty
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

Honestly, Swoobat is terrible and Sigilyph and Archeops are better in almost every way. But I'll still give suggestions:
-Air Slash
-Endeavor/Shadow Ball
Nature: Mild
EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: whatever you want as long as it's useful to you competitively

Gigalith's move pool is rather shallow, so work with this:
-Stealth Rock
-Stone Edge
Nature: Quirky (would've been nice if it was Adamant, but w/e)
EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def
Item: Rock Incense

Most people expect Hydreigon as a special attacker, but a physical set is still viable for the surprise factor:
-Stone Edge
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Persim Berry/Lum Berry (to cure the confusion from Outrage, though the latter can also be used to cure other statuses in general)
