According to Serebii, Effort Values (EVs) determine the stats of a Pokémon upon leveling up. A Pokémon should have a maximum of 252 EVs in any particular stat. In the original Pokémon games, the only way to EV train a Pokémon was to battle specific Pokémon depending on the desired value. This remains a feature in the more recent games. Many websites, including Serebii, provide a list of Pokémon that can train a certain value. For speed, these include Charmander, Weedle, Basculin and many more. With this method of EV training, it may be effective to give a Power Anklet to the Pokémon being trained, which adds 4 EVs to the amount gained at the end of battle. Carbos is another item that increases the Speed EVs of a Pokémon. Finally, in the X/Y series, trainers can utilize Super Training to train EVs by choosing the EV they wish to train from the Super Training menu.
