Advice on making Custom Builds?

I really want to take the road less traveled when it comes to EV training and the like, but I have no idea how to do so effectively. Every time I tried to guess what would be a good EV spread, when I check either here or on smogon, I'm always way off of what seems to be most beneficial.

I suppose something I still need to fully grasp how EV's and IV's effect stats, but even if you can just give me several examples of pokemon, and why putting EV's in certain stats for that particular one is more effective than another.

Assuming you aren't already, try making a team on Pokémon Online or Pokémon Showdown.

With either simulator, you could build your Pokémon to your liking(for the most part) and test their effectiveness against other players.
