does pain split work better on a pokemon with higher defenses then HP or vice versa?

No; Pain Split works as follows:

The game adds up your current HP, and your opponent's current HP. It then divides by 2, and both Pokemon now have that HP (if it's more than a Pokemon's max, it becomes full).

really, cause when i was in the battle factory, the dusclops i used had pain split, and whenever he used pain split he gained hp but the enemy didn't, actually the enemy lost the same amount as dusclops gained. does that mean my game is screwed up? (and no the opponent didn't have full health)

well hares the reason i'm curious, because i'm about to EV train my dusclops but I'm not sure if i should give dusclops 252 HP 128 Def 128 SD or 252 Def 252 SD 6 HP?

so which ev spread should i use on my dusclops with pain split?

The whole point of Pain Split is for one Pokemon to gain HP while the other loses it. Example:

(Note, all the numbers I'm giving are completely arbitrary.)
I have a Misdreavus with Pain Split. Its HP is 20/165.
I target a Blissey with HP 230/250.

20 + 230 = 250.
250 / 2 = 125.

Therefore, the Misdreavus ends up with 125/165,
and the Blissey ends up with 125/250.

Misdreavus gained HP, and Blissey lost it. That's the main function of Pain Split.

As for your training suggestions, you can go to the rating center for that.

I just DID explain Pain Split to you.
Or you can look on the Tech Dex:

Thanks I have never seen that before because I don't use any Pokemon that know that move.
