btw, the magic Poison Heal numbers are divisible by 8 + 1, so Chimpakt is right about 244 HP EVs for the defensive set and SD at least. You're best off with 248 for Substitute sets. I'll do some math to make sure there isn't a more optimal spread for Defense.
Regarding Hyper Cutter, it's more debateable. Both abilities can be used effectively; as Hyper Cutter lets you beat Gyarados and Salamence- both of whom you'd need +2 and flying Gem to OHKO with Acrobatics. Hyper Cutter prevents your attack stat from falling, so Intimidaters aren't as annoying. Poison Heal can be used, I guess, but the chances of you getting poisoned are relatively small. I don't see the need to put it in as neither will be used very much.
Ok so 248 HP allows you to make 4 subs and still live; with 244 you can only make three. They both heal the same amount from Poison Heal, but an added 4 evs lets you make 1 more substitute
