Pokemon Diamond and Shining Pearl Come with the Permanent Exp Share Feature.

Last Updated on October 15, 2021 by Joydeep Ghosh

The new Pokemon Diamond and Shining Pearl will be including a feature of permanent Exp Share.

Since the time the Pokemon was seen in red and blue, this Exp Share item had existed.

This is the eighth generation of the game, and it was the first to make it a permanent thing on the game.

We will soon see the mechanic making a comeback in Pokemon Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Exp Share was one of those items used to divide the experience gained between the Pokemon which were used in the battle and the ones holding the items which were before the Pokemon Gen 6.

This particular feature had been changed in Pokemon X and Y when the Exp Share was brought up to the status of being an essential and important item.

The experience can be shared among all the members belonging to the party.

This is totally up to the users’ discretion, and they can toggle it either on or off.

Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee were the ones to go through the item entirely in the very beginning.

At that point in time, the disadvantage was that there was no way in which we could turn off this particular feature.

Pokemon Diamond and Shining Pearl will have the feature of permanent Exp Share.

There have also been reports from Serebii that Pokemon Diamond and Shining Pearl that permanent Exp Share will be a part of it.

Serebii also informs us that there is no way to switch off the mechanic once it’s on.

This is just like the case which the players had seen earlier in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

This particular decision taken by the developers has received mixed reactions as of now.

Many responses are backlashing the decision of keeping this feature entirely on.

A few of the responses have also mentioned that this decision taken by the developers is not actually faithful to the original Pokemon Diamond and Shining Pearl, and it will go on to affect the difficulty level of the game.

The feature of permanent Exp Share might have started in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.

This has not been solidly established as a part of the franchise until it came back again in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Pokemon Sword and Shield is the newest mainline dual release by the developers.

A few of the major complaints included the absence of National Pokedex and the party experience gain.

Many pro players and critics had criticized the Pokemon Sword and Shield because the game had become very easy.

It was not the perfect one to over-level Pokemon.

This explains the fact why people are again not happy about the feature in Pokemon Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Issues about this feature will continue to remain in all the Pokemon games.

There will be a group of people who would not be pleased with the decrease in the difficulty level, while a few people would be pleased as the grinding level of the game has been brought down.

The feature of permanent Exp Share is totally something whose liking varies from person to person.

There are several reviews which state that this feature should have been kept optional.

Till now, we are not very clear as to how Pokemon Diamond and Shining Pearl would be handling the Exp Share.

The developer Game Freak has not announced anything as of now.

We will get to know more of it as it releases in the upcoming days.
