A Rare Candy is a medicine Item introducd in Generation I. When consumed by a Pokémon, the Pokémon will gain one level. Rare candies are often duplicated using various glitches because of their rarity and effect. However, a Pokémon that is leveled up by use of rare candies will not receive the benefit of Effort Values that they would have from battling either Wild Pokémon or another Trainer's Pokémon. Eventually though, the Pokemon will get the EVs it lost from eating the rare candy.
Rare Candies, as their name puts up, are rare. Mostly, they can be found in caves and grassy areas. They are usually hidden items, so they are found in rocks or the ground.
