Can you turn off EXP Share in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?

Everyone is getting EXP this time around.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are the latest entries in the Pokémon franchise available for the Nintendo Switch, reintroducing the fourth generation of the popular monster-catching franchise. These games have tweaked how progression works, including how the EXP Share feature reacts to party Pokémon.

EXP Share impacts all party members throughout Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Unfortunately, Players cannot turn off EXP Share in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. If users don't want Pokémon to gain experience automatically, their only option would be to place their Pokémon in a PC and remove them from the party.

  1. I really don’t like this new direction that Pokemon is going in, especially with the Exp Share.

    It would just be overall better if the player had the option to switch the Exp Share on and off, and if the Exp Share had two modes: exp for the entire team, giving overall less to every Pokemon, or exp to one Pokemon, giving more to that one Pokemon than in the other mode.

  2. How can you show love and patience to your pokémon if your not placing enough effort to train them by themselves? Pokémon aren’t just mechanical beings that are subject to a trainers “convenience” of levelling them up without spending “real” time with them.. this is one of the core values of pokémon
