Platinum Vs. Seeker

The Vs. Seeker returns in Pokémon Platinum. Almost every single trainer in the game has had their teams modified to various degrees since Diamond and Pearl, so a whole new trainer list is in order. Not only that, but there are also two new features adding rebattleable trainers to the game: the daily Pokémon Center battles, where particular trainers will battle you every day in different Pokémon Centers around Sinnoh, and the Battleground café in Survival Area, where you can rebattle Gym leaders and your double battle partners from around the storyline. This section covers all of these rebattleable trainers.

To repeat the explanation: This section shows the trainers' final teams. They should all have been unlocked when you have finished the final Stark Mountain quest of the storyline. If you battle a trainer and the Pokémon are lower-leveled than shown here, you either need to complete the Stark Mountain quest or simply rebattle the trainer again. (If they're higher-leveled, on the other hand, this is a mistake on my part - please contact me with the name of the trainer.) The experience for each Pokémon is given, as well as the Effort Points (shorthanded as HP for Hit Points, ATK for Attack, DEF for Defense, SPA for Special Attack, SPD for Special Defense and SPE for Speed), and the total EXP and Effort Points for each trainer are also shown. Since D/P introduced the power items (Power Weight, Power Bracer, Power Belt, Power Lens, Power Band and Power Anklet for HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed, respectively), the total effort point section for each trainer also shows how many extra Effort Points in all you will gain in the relevant stat if your Pokémon is holding a power item (in case you don't know how they work, every time your Pokémon gains any Effort Points, it will also gain four extra in the power item's particular stat).

The locations of each trainer are hopefully adequately described for you to be able to find them without a visual reference image, but if you find some particular description too confusing to follow, I'd appreciate if you contacted me.

Go down that path, past the Pokémon-healing lodge (obviously where you should go to heal, rather than back to Snowpoint), on to the right, up the first flight of stairs, and then Rock Climb on the wall above you. From there, go on to the right, past the Black Belt you'll find, and he'll be skiing around a little further ahead. It is best to recharge your Vs. Seeker close to the wall you climbed, since there you can run.

Ninja Boy Ethan

Location: Route 217, west of Snowpoint City. Get through Acuity Lakefront to the entrance to Route 217 (no, I won't describe in detail how to get there; the general direction is down and left), go down through the grass patch, turn left through that narrow path and then down, past that spinning Black Belt. A female Skier will be skiing around there below when you come into the open are again. Continue down past her until you come to a house. A bit below the house, close to the forest edge on the left, you'll find what looks like a dark bump in the snow. It is actually Ethan hiding. You need to talk to the bump to make him reveal himself before the Vs. Seeker will pick him up as a trainer. Note that if you're training against him, the best place to recharge the Vs. Seeker is inside the aforementioned house, since there you can run.

There will be a male Skier skiing around there; that's him. Note that the best place to recharge the Vs. Seeker if you're battling him is the narrow path towards Route 216 below, where you can actually run, although admittedly it's far enough down that most of the steps will go into the journey there and back, and if you want to heal your Pokémon, you should definitely go down to the lodge on Route 216 instead of back to Snowpoint.

Go down once you're past her, jump off the ledge, go a bit down past the other Parasol Lady there, and then go onto the pier on the left. Walk left, past the Fisherman there, take the lower pier where it splits, and then once you're back on dry land, go a bit up and then left again, up under the bike-bridge and then finally turn left when you get to some grass with a clear path through it.

Get through Acuity Lakefront to the entrance to Route 217 (no, I won't describe in detail how to get there; the general direction is down and left), go down through the grass patch, turn left through that narrow path and then down, past that spinning Black Belt.

Go on downwards there until you can't get any further, and then go on to the right until you come to the narrow path that leads to Route 216. Go down that path, past the Pokémon-healing lodge (obviously where you should go to heal, rather than back to Snowpoint), on to the right, up the first flight of stairs and he'll be skiing around there.

Continue down past her, past the house you'll come to, all the way down until the forest blocks your way, and then go right along the forest's edge until you can go down again. Do so, staying with the forest just on your left. When you've passed a few trees, the area will open up a bit more and allow you to go into a pocket of snowy land above to your left; she's the only trainer in that area. Note that the best place to recharge the Vs. Seeker if you're battling her is the narrow path towards Route 216 below, where you can actually run, although admittedly it's far enough down that most of the steps will go into the journey there and back, and if you want to heal your Pokémon, you should definitely go down to the lodge on Route 216 instead of back to Snowpoint.

From there, go on to the right, past the Black Belt and two Skiers on the way, and she'll be skiing around near the right mountainside. It is technically best to recharge your Vs. Seeker close to the wall you climbed, since there you can run, but it's just about fifty steps over there anyway, so you might as well just walk around close to her where the snow isn't too deep.

Go up past the sign and go through the grass on the right. Get on your Bicycle and use the little slanted rock there to jump over the couple of rocks over to where the Ace Trainer is.

Jump down the ledge at the bottom very carefully and make sure not to go over the next ledge when you turn left. Turn up when you come to the grass and go right when you come to the house. Head up those stairs and then go right. Get on your bike if you aren't already and go up the bike bridge. Go on up a bit and then turn left into the grass when you can and jump down the ledge.

Ruin Maniac Larry

Location: Route 224, northeast of the Pokémon League. There is a really long way to get there through Victory Road, but I really can't be bothered to detail it; as long as you know that you go in from the League side, cross the bridge, Rock Climb down, then get up the stairs that are on the north side of the rock to the left so that you can take the bridge back to the right and finally to the cave entrance there at the far right of the room, you should be able to figure out the rest of the fairly straightforward path on your own. Oh, and the room past there is foggy. So all in all you'll need Surf, Waterfall, Rock Climb and probably Defog, as well as lots and lots of walking through a cave full of wild Pokémon to get to the route in the first place. Inaccessible trainer much? At least, once you're out in open air on Route 224, you just walk up, past the Ace Trainer, through the grass, past the Veteran where the route turns right, onto the beach, past the Black Belt running around, and then up as you enter back into foresty land. He's standing by a tree.

Inaccessible trainer much? At least, once you're out in open air on Route 224, you just walk up and he's there near the grass.

Go past that Ace Trainer and go on up until you come to a gatehouse on the left through which you can enter Route 226. Head up through the grass on the left to get to Route 227. Go up past the sign and go through the grass on the right. Get on your Bicycle and use the little slanted rock there to jump over the couple of rocks over to where the Ace Trainer is. Then go very carefully to the bottom of that area and jump left using the slanted rock there. Jump down the ledge at the bottom very carefully and make sure not to go over the next ledge when you turn left. Turn up when you come to the grass and go right when you come to the house. Head up those stairs and then go right. Get on your bike if you aren't already and go up the bike bridge. Go on up a bit and then turn left into the grass and continue upwards until you get out of it. Turn right and jump off the two ledges below to get to him. Note that the best way to heal if battling him repeatedly is to go to the extra-hospitable old woman in the house close by; just go up through the grass on the right, turn left, jump down the ledge there, and then go down, jump down the ledge just to the right of the grass patch and get back via the bike bridge.

Black Belt Carl

Location: Route 224, northeast of the Pokémon League. There is a really long way to get there through Victory Road, but I really can't be bothered to detail it; as long as you know that you go in from the League side, cross the bridge, Rock Climb down, then get up the stairs that are on the north side of the rock to the left so that you can take the bridge back to the right and finally to the cave entrance there at the far right of the room, you should be able to figure out the rest of the fairly straightforward path on your own. Oh, and the room past there is foggy. So all in all you'll need Surf, Waterfall, Rock Climb and probably Defog, as well as lots and lots of walking through a cave full of wild Pokémon to get to the route in the first place. Inaccessible trainer much? At least, once you're out in open air on Route 224, you just walk up, past the Ace Trainer, through the grass, past the Veteran where the route turns right, onto the beach, and he's running around there.

Cut them and then continue on straight up, through the sparse grass on the way, over the bridge and through the grass on the other side, and you'll find him standing near some rocks and a tree when you're well on your way towards Wayward Cave. Yes, this is one of the least accessible Vs. Seekerable trainers in the game, barring Route 224. Don't ask me why they picked him of all trainers to give a pretty powerful final team.

Psychic Brittney

Location: Route 224, northeast of the Pokémon League. There is a really long way to get there through Victory Road, but I really can't be bothered to detail it; as long as you know that you go in from the League side, cross the bridge, Rock Climb down, then get up the stairs that are on the north side of the rock to the left so that you can take the bridge back to the right and finally to the cave entrance there at the far right of the room, you should be able to figure out the rest of the fairly straightforward path on your own. Oh, and the room past there is foggy. So all in all you'll need Surf, Waterfall, Rock Climb and probably Defog, as well as lots and lots of walking through a cave full of wild Pokémon to get to the route in the first place. Inaccessible trainer much? At least, once you're out in open air on Route 224, you just walk up, past the Ace Trainer and up through the grass while keeping to the left; then you'll see a Psychic looking at you from the left side of a well-hidden gap in the trees. That's her.

Dragon Tamer "Oh... my... gosh..." Patrick

Location: Route 210, east of Celestic Town. Go down those stairs, on right across the bridge, past the Bird Keeper below, and then up the south stairs on the right. Go right and cross the bridge up, then take the next bridge right. Go on right past the Ace Trainer and use Rock Climb on the wall on the right, then again on the wall to the right there to get back out of the pit. You'll see him straight in front of you now. And yes, he actually does say "Oh... my... gosh..." when you beat him. Doesn't quite match the dramatic attire, does it?

Finally you can go down a long flight of stairs; do so. You'll pass a house, but continue down and go right of the small patch of grass so you can go up onto a rock below. Rodolfo is on top of that.

Go on north past them until you come to where there's a little square 'pond' and some grass; turn left there and go up through the tall grass near the left wall until you get out of the grass and into another sandy area. Go past that Ace Trainer and go on up until you come to a gatehouse on the left through which you can enter Route 226. Head up through the grass on the left to get to Route 227. Go up past the sign and go through the grass on the right. Get on your Bicycle and use the little slanted rock there to jump over the couple of rocks over to where the Ace Trainer is. That's him. Note that the best way to heal if battling him repeatedly is to go to the extra-hospitable old woman in the house close by; just jump over the rocks on the bottom left on your bike, go carefully down the ledge there and go on left while making sure not to go over the next ledge, and then turn straight up when you get to the grass to get to her house.

Pokémon Center Daily Battles

In the various Pokémon Centers in Sinnoh's towns, there will sometimes be trainers standing in front of the counter. These are the rebattleable Pokémon Center trainers, who can each be battled once a day and move from Pokémon Center to Pokémon Center depending on the day of the week. If you're desperate to rebattle one of them, you can always cheat and set your DS clock to a minute before midnight, as unlike events like migration through Pal Park, the game does not force you to wait twenty-four hours after changing the clock.

High-Level Training Spots

Note that for high-level training, the first place to go is always the Battleground - here I assume you've already battled them for the day and don't want to reset the clock.

Ace Trainer Ariana, the former Vs. Seeker queen of EXP in the game, has now changed her name to Moira and given her team a makeover, resulting in her being dethroned by one Rancher Marco. Rancher Marco, however, unfortunately does not make for much of a training spot, since the only other trainers you can get on-screen with him are Belle & Pa Ava & Matt and Jogger Wyatt, neither of whose Pokémon have leveled up at all since you first battled them. Instead, however, we have a new training spot possibility and an improved old one:

Ace Trainer Dennis, Ace Trainer Maya

Location: Route 215, just west of Veilstone City

Number of Pokémon: 6

Levels: 59-61

Total EXP: 15230

Notes: Actually an even better spot than Ace Trainer Ariana/Black Belt Davon in D/P, believe it or not, and it's one heck of a lot more accessible. This is the place to go for high-level training, at least when you're done with the daily Pokémon Center and Battleground rematches.

Bird Keeper Audrey, PKMN Ranger Ashlee, Psychic Daisy

Location: Route 225, just north of Fight Area

Number of Pokémon: 8

Levels: 57-62

Total EXP: 15247

Notes: Technically gives a bit more total experience than the above, but it's spread across eight Pokémon instead of six and three trainers instead of two, making it both take a longer time to battle them and less likely that you'll get all of them in one use of the Vs. Seeker. All in all, Dennis and Maya are preferable, but try them if their Pokémon suit you better.

More (hopefully) coming soon.

EV Trainers

In Diamond and Pearl, there was only one Vs. Seekerable trainer with six Pokémon - who would thus grant 24 extra effort points with power items - in the game, Fisherman Andrew. He is still around in Platinum and still has six Magikarp:

Fisherman "Trademark six-Magikarp Fisherman" Andrew

Location: Route 205. Go west from Eterna City and onto the pier on the little lake. He's the second fisherman from the right.

Pokémon: Magikarp lv. 8 (33 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 10 (42 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 12 (51 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 12 (51 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 14 (60 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 16 (67 EXP, 1 SPE)

Reward: 512P

Total EXP: 304

Total Effort Points: 6 Speed (+24 with power item)

However, Platinum also gives one Collector Brady six Pokémon, and they give a couple of effort points in HP, Attack, Defense and Speed, meaning with the power items, you are better off training HP, Attack and Defense against him as long as you don't mind having to plant a few more kinds of EV-lowering berries:

Collector Brady

Location: Route 214, south of Veilstone City. Walk down from the city and then take the ground path, on the right side of the mountain one. Go down the left side of that path (i.e. not the grassy one), go down until the paths have joined back together, and then where it splits briefly back into three paths, he is the chubby guy wearing blue that's running around.

Pokémon: Skorupi lv. 21 (513 EXP, 1 DEF), Tangela lv. 21 (747 EXP, 1 DEF), Yanma lv. 21 (661 EXP, 2 SPE), Carnivine lv. 21 (738 EXP, 2 ATK), Croagunk lv. 21 (373 EXP, 1 ATK), Tropius lv. 21 (760 EXP, 2 HP)

Reward: 1344P

Total EXP: 3792

Total Effort Points: 2 HP, 3 Attack, 2 Defense, 2 Speed (+24 with power item)

As in the D/P section, I will list alternatives anyway for those who don't have the power items or just don't like growing berries.

HP

First of all, Cheryl, Cheryl, Cheryl! If you're lucky enough to get her in the Battleground (it's a one in five chance), she'll get you 11 pure HP effort points without the power items and a whopping 31 with (more even than Speed effort trainers get for Fisherman Andrew):

PKMN Trainer Cheryl

Location: May appear randomly in the Battleground to the left of the Pokémon Center in Survival Area every day.

Pokémon: Wobbuffet lv. 61 (2313 EXP, 2 HP), Drifblim lv. 61 (2665 EXP, 2 HP), Hariyama lv. 62 (2443 EXP, 2 HP), Wailord lv. 63 (2781 EXP, 2 HP), Blissey lv. 65 (3550 EXP, 3 HP)

Reward: 7800P

Total EXP: 13752

Total Effort Points: 11 HP (+20 with power item)

Otherwise, here you'll want Tuber Jared; all other HP effort-yielding Vs. Seeker trainers are decidedly inferior:

Tuber Jared

Location: Route 213, east of Pastoria City. From Pastoria, walk east through the grass and then get down to that beach. On the east end of the shore, there will be a narrow strip of sand you can walk across, and if you do that you'll come to another beach, where there are two Tubers playing. He's the boy, the one below who's running around. Note that if training against him, the best way to heal is simply to go up and heal in the hotel building straight above that beach, not going back to Pastoria.

Pokémon: Gastrodon lv. 51 (1923 EXP, 2 HP), Gastrodon lv. 51 (1923 EXP, 2 HP), Gastrodon lv. 51 (1923 EXP, 2 HP)

Reward: 204P

Total EXP: 5769

Total Effort Points: 6 HP (+12 with power item)

Attack

Technically, the most Attack effort you can get from a single Vs. Seekerable trainer is Youngster Dallas, but then you'll have to either use some other Pokémon against his Golem or plant some Qualot Berries:

Youngster Dallas

Location: Route 203, east of Jubilife City. If you walk right along the road and up the stairs, he is the first trainer you'll encounter as you go on right.

Pokémon: Luxray lv. 50 (2077 EXP, 3 ATK), Bibarel lv. 50 (1242 EXP, 2 ATK), Golem lv. 50 (1896 EXP, 3 DEF), Staraptor lv. 50 (1842 EXP, 3 ATK)

Reward: 800P

Total EXP: 7057

Total Effort Points: 8 Attack, 3 Defense (+16 with power item)

There is also Riley, who will also give you more Attack effort even than Fisherman Andrew with power items, but without them only eight like Dallas while he also gives an extraneous Special Attack effort point and only has a one in five chance of appearing in the Battleground once a day:

PKMN Trainer Riley

Location: May appear randomly in the Battleground to the left of the Pokémon Center in Survival Area every day.

Pokémon: Absol lv. 61 (2274 EXP, 2 ATK), Ursaring lv. 61 (2470 EXP, 2 ATK), Metagross lv. 62 (2790 EXP, 3 DEF), Salamence lv. 63 (2943 EXP, 3 ATK), Lucario lv. 65 (2841 EXP, 1 ATK, 1 SPA)

Reward: 7800P

Total EXP: 13318

Total Effort Points: 8 Attack, 3 Defense, 1 Special Attack (+20 with power item)

Your other best bets, assuming you don't have the power items, are these three, who will all get you six Attack effort points:

Jogger Craig

Location: Route 215, west of Veilstone City, but it is best to get to him by going north from Solaceon Town. Ride your Bicycle up the "breeding route", that one-tile-wide straight path through the extra-tall grass north of town, turn right when you get to the road above the grassy area aof the route, and enter Route 215 that way. Go right up the stairs onto the rock, up the bridge, down from the rock, and go right under the bridge. Craig is jogging around there. Note that Joggers will only battle you in the morning.

Pokémon: Luxray lv. 59 (2452 EXP, 3 ATK), Luxray lv. 59 (2452 EXP, 3 ATK)

Reward: 1888P

Total EXP: 4904

Total Effort Points: 6 Attack (+8 with power item)

Cyclist John

Location: Cycling Road. If you go down from Eterna City, he's the fifth trainer you meet on the way and is just above where the road splits into two.

Pokémon: Farfetch'd lv. 57 (1147 EXP, 1 ATK), Dodrio lv. 58 (1963 EXP, 2 ATK), Staraptor lv. 59 (2173 EXP, 3 ATK)

Reward: 1888P

Total EXP: 5283

Total Effort Points: 6 Attack (+12 with power item)

Swimmer Male Sheltin

Location: Route 213, east of Pastoria City. This guy is probably the trickiest trainer to get to in the game. From Pastoria, walk east through the grass and then get down to that beach. On the east side of the shore, there's a fisherman (not a trainer) and a narrow strip of sand going on to the east. Around this point, Surf downwards and a little on the right you'll be able to go down a path between some rocks. You'll find a female Swimmer. Now, here's the tricky part: Surf right past her, towards the island with the Sailor on it, but turn down. The big rock on your left doesn't look like it has a gap below it because of the way the rocks below it are positioned, but there is a gap - you can just swim right between them. You'll find him there if you go on left.

Pokémon: Gyarados lv. 32 (1467 EXP, 2 ATK), Gyarados lv. 32 (1467 EXP, 2 ATK), Gyarados lv. 32 (1467 EXP, 2 ATK)

Reward: 512P

Total EXP: 4401

Total Effort Points: 6 Attack (+12 with power item)

However, if you do have power items and just want pure Attack, this is who you want:

Swimmer Female Jessica

Location: Route 220. Surf down from Sandgem Beach, past the island with the two Tubers, and take the left path. You will come to two female Swimmers swimming back and forth. Jessica is the upper one.

Pokémon: Goldeen lv. 30 (712 EXP, 1 ATK), Goldeen lv. 30 (712 EXP, 1 ATK), Goldeen lv. 31 (736 EXP, 1 ATK), Seaking lv. 33 (1201 EXP, 2 ATK)

Reward: 528P

Total EXP: 3361

Total Effort Points: 5 Attack (+16 with power item)

Defense

You'll want this guy, period, especially if you have power items.

Hiker Kevin

Location: Route 207, above Oreburgh City. Go up from the town, into that pit, up the mudslide on your bike, and then turn a little right. You'll be able to go down a one-tile-wide path there off the main road to the east; go down that little path and then follow it on east under the bridge and past the Youngster running around. Go up the stairs there, turn left, and above the next set of stairs, he will be standing by the bridge that you passed under earlier.

Pokémon: Geodude lv. 17 (312 EXP, 1 DEF), Geodude lv. 17 (312 EXP, 1 DEF), Onix lv. 19 (439 EXP, 1 DEF), Geodude lv. 19 (349 EXP, 1 DEF)

Reward: 608P

Total EXP: 1412

Total Effort Points: 4 Defense (+16 with power item)

...well, unless you're also training for Special Defense and have Buck in the Battleground:

PKMN Trainer Buck

Location: May appear randomly in the Battleground to the left of the Pokémon Center in Survival Area every day.

Pokémon: Shuckle lv. 61 (1045 EXP, 1 DEF, 1 SPD), Umbreon lv. 62 (2616 EXP, 2 SPD), Torkoal lv. 61 (2104 EXP, 2 DEF), Dusknoir lv. 63 (2835 EXP, 1 DEF, 2 SPD), Claydol lv. 65 (2632 EXP, 2 SPD)

Reward: 7800P

Total EXP: 11232

Total Effort Points: 4 Defense, 7 Special Defense (+20 with power item)

Special Attack

If you get Mira in the Battleground, lucky you; she'll get you much more than Fisherman Andrew could ever get you with power items and a whopping 14 effort points even without them, although at the cost of one extraneous Special Defense point.

PKMN Trainer Mira

Location: May appear randomly in the Battleground to the left of the Pokémon Center in Survival Area every day.

Pokémon: Porygon-Z lv. 61 (2418 EXP, 3 SPA), Gengar lv. 61 (2482 EXP, 3 SPA), Magnezone lv. 62 (2802 EXP, 3 SPA), Togekiss lv. 63 (2970 EXP, 2 SPA, 1 SPD), Alakazam lv. 65 (2590 EXP, 3 SPA)

Reward: 7800P

Total EXP: 13262

Total Effort Points: 14 Special Attack, 1 Special Defense (+20 with power item)

Otherwise, gone are the days when you could easily get six pure Special Attack effort points from Vs. Seekerable trainers. The only way to get six for one trainer now is Ace Trainer Maya:

Ace Trainer Maya

Location: Route 215, west of Veilstone City. From the west gatehouse from Veilstone, head on left and there will be two Ace Trainers above and below the path. She's the female, the one above the road.

Pokémon: Roserade lv. 59 (2578 EXP, 3 SPA), Gardevoir lv. 61 (2718 EXP, 3 SPA), Lickilicky lv. 61 (2521 EXP, 3 HP)

Reward: 3660P

Total EXP: 7817

Total Effort Points: 3 HP, 6 Special Attack (+12 with power item)

However, she'll give you unwanted HP effort. The best you can get in pure Special Attack, with and without power items, is sadly Scientist Shaun:

Scientist Shaun

Location: Route 212, west of Pastoria City. Walk left from Pastoria, go down past the NPC just after you enter the route, and then a little left until you come to two Cuttable trees below the road. Cut past those, go up the stairs, get on your Bicycle and go all the way up the bike-bridge, get down the stairs on the left, and then go on left a little until you come to a Scientist standing above some of the trees. That's him.

Pokémon: Magneton lv. 55 (1897 EXP, 2 SPA), Alakazam lv. 51 (2032 EXP, 3 SPA)

Reward: 2448P

Total EXP: 3929

Total Effort Points: 5 Special Attack (+8 with power item)

Special Defense

Platinum doesn't like Special Defense. There are absolutely no trainers that give exclusively Special Defense effort points aside from a couple of Swimmers with a Tentacruel and a Youngster with a Burmy - you're better off battling wild Pokémon. The best you can get in trainers is Buck by far, but you'll have to be lucky to get him in the Battleground and can only battle him once a day unless you mess with the DS clock, besides that he gives (perhaps) unwanted Defense as well:

PKMN Trainer Buck

Location: May appear randomly in the Battleground to the left of the Pokémon Center in Survival Area every day.

Pokémon: Shuckle lv. 61 (1045 EXP, 1 DEF, 1 SPD), Umbreon lv. 62 (2616 EXP, 2 SPD), Torkoal lv. 61 (2104 EXP, 2 DEF), Dusknoir lv. 63 (2835 EXP, 1 DEF, 2 SPD), Claydol lv. 65 (2632 EXP, 2 SPD)

Reward: 7800P

Total EXP: 11232

Total Effort Points: 4 Defense, 7 Special Defense (+20 with power item)

Otherwise, you won't get better than Lady Melissa, but with her you also get unwanted Special Attack effort:

Lady Melissa

Location: Route 212. The rich couple are standing together, one tile apart, on the right side of the road inside the garden in front of the Pokémon Mansion. She's the girl, on the right.

Pokémon: Hoppip lv. 58 (919 EXP, 1 SPD), Cherrim lv. 58 (1653 EXP, 2 SPA), Bellossom lv. 58 (2286 EXP, 3 SPD)

Reward: 9280P

Total EXP: 4858

Total Effort Points: 2 Special Attack, 4 Special Defense (+12 with power item)

Speed

Like in Diamond and Pearl, Fisherman Andrew is obviously your best bet with power items, granting you 30 pure Speed effort points, but Ninja Boy Zach is better without power items:

Ninja Boy Zach

Location: Route 211, east of Eterna City. Walk east from the city and into the top right corner of that big patch of grass. The little bump there in the grass is Zach, using his special ninja skills to hide. Talk to him to make him reveal himself before using the Vs. Seeker; he won't battle you while you still (in theory) don't know he's there.

Pokémon: Golbat lv. 51 (1867 EXP, 2 SPE), Crobat lv. 51 (2229 EXP, 3 SPE), Crobat lv. 51 (2229 EXP, 3 SPE)

Reward: 408P

Total EXP: 6325

Total Effort Points: 8 Speed (+12 with power item)

If you want more EXP, there's also always Marley, who'll also give you 8 Speed effort points but is a Battleground trainer so on average you'll only get to battle her once every five days, and she also gives unwanted (though maybe not) effort in Attack:

PKMN Trainer Marley

Location: May appear randomly in the Battleground to the left of the Pokémon Center in Survival Area every day.

Pokémon: Ninjask lv. 61 (2025 EXP, 2 SPE), Electrode lv. 61 (1960 EXP, 2 SPE), Crobat lv. 62 (2709 EXP, 3 SPE), Weavile lv. 63 (2686 EXP, 1 ATK, 1 SPE), Arcanine lv. 65 (2965 EXP, 2 ATK)

Reward: 7800P

Total EXP: 12345

Total Effort Points: 3 Attack, 8 Speed (+20 with power item)
