First of all, it's not a cheat. And second it doesn't work. If you clear the biking route of trainers it makes a nice place to go back and forth on and that can get you quick exp though.

I found another way that works! If you go to the rocket hideout with a Pokemon in the daycare. Ok near the top of the room( on the second floor) theres a slide panel that sends you up.And the tile right above it should be a yellow stop tile. Put tape or something to hold the down button down and you should find that your character is moving back and forth between the tiles without you touching a button. If you leave this with your DS/GameBoy on the charger for a while you'll find thar your Pokemon is getting exp. Without you doing anything. Go have some fun while your Pokemon is leveling up itself.

For both this, and the post above this I found that standard tape won't hold the button down completely after some time. The way I did it, is tape it down, and then put something heavy on top of it. (Tall) For me it was my contact solution, this keeps enough pressure down to let it go all night. I spent an hour with my Eevee lvl 5 in the daycare, and it was lvl 25 when I came back.

Do what blue ralts says. I know how you can do this in Pokemon Sapphire though. All you have to do is go in the desert, and go up and down the slide thing. Don't use a bike, and you'll need the Go-Goggles to do this. Put something heavy over the up button and put the charger in. Leave your game on over night.

All you need to do is some easy steps. Here we go!

1. Put a Pokemon in the Daycare. (Cerulean City).
2. (Optional. You need to have beaten the Elite four) Put 2 more in the Daycare on 4 island.
3. Go to Rocket Hideout in Celedon City. (Game Corner).
4. Go to floor 2 where those spinning things are. Start on a yellow spot, and tape down the right arrow key.
5. Also, tape down the B button, so you run.(This will make leveling up faster).
6. Plug your DS in (or Gameboy) and leave it on over night.
7. Wake up in the morning with a stronger Pokemon! (Normally 4-7 levels higher depending on which Pokemon you put in).

After extensive testing using dragon types(larger exp amounts allowing for easier exp accounting within levels) and painstakingly adding and subtracting extra steps I find that running in the rocket lair (with a directional and b button weighed down) yields a little over 3 exp a second. The longest stretch in Giovanni's gym leaves you at just under 2 exp a second. I did the work...enjoy!
