    It sounds like you are misunderstanding the relationship between Exp. Share and the Macho Brace. In your scenario, Torchic/Combusken is only receiving the standard amount of EVs after each battle (the points are assigned before the Macho Brace's effect is applied). When you defeat that Trapinch, Combusken is only receiving a single attack EV, even though Scyther is receiving 2. This means it would not be unusual for your Scyther to be fully EV trained way before Torchic/Combusken... Also check to make sure Combusken doesn't already have an Effort Ribbon... lol...
