Generally put defensive EVs into your defensive Pokemon. Put offensive EVs into the offensive ones, the ones looking to kill.

But what if the defensive pokemon has an amazing offensive base? Like Aggron or Tyranitar? Or even Vaporeon?

I guess in the end, I'm asking which pokemon should have its EV mainly in defensive and which pokemon should have its EV simply in the base stats that they excel at?

That depends on what you want that Pokemon to do on your team?
Do you want it to only stall and annoy your opponent?
Do you want it to simply be able to take hits while doing moderate damage?

The poke ones move pool , and ability both affect this so you should take them into
Consideration.

Also take into consideration what Pokemon your opponent is using or at least what you think they'll
Use because it's popular.
