EXP Share is Back in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl


0

 

Preview reports have been rolling in for Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, and many of them have covered some of the upgrades that have been put in place to improve the originals. One of them is a somewhat controversial feature that's been around in some form since the first generation of Pokémon games. Back then it was an item called EXP. All before turning into EXP. Share in Generation II, and it's back in the remakes in a form that's already annoying some players ahead of launch.

 

According to the early previews, EXP. Share is in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, only this time you reportedly can't turn off its effects. For those unfamiliar with the item, it distributes experience points a Pokémon gains through battle to the rest of the Pokémon in the player's party, regardless of whether or not they contributed to the fight. Subsequent generations kept the same function if the various Pokémon in the party were holding onto the item, and more current entries turned it into a key item players can toggle on and off. 

 

More casual fans will simply see this as an extension of a long-running quality-of-life feature, while others feel it negatively impacts the overall experience and makes the games easier. 

 

Other features confirmed through previews include the auto-saving, displaying of type effectiveness next to Pokémon moves, single-use technical machines (TMs), and the ability to move Pokémon between their party and PC boxes without actually using a Pokémon Center PC. 

 

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl hit Nintendo Switch on November 19.
