Does Lucky Egg boost the experience gain from Exp. Share?

  • Does Lucky Egg boost the experience gain from Exp. Share? Klokworkk

    I'm trying to figure out if putting a Lucky Egg on a party pokemon would give it extra experience even if I don't use it in a fight. It is hard to tell though because the text after you KO a pokemon just says that all pokemon not used get a bit of experience. Does anyone know if that experience is boosted with a Lucky Egg?

  • If you equip a Lucky Egg to a Pokemon, the gained experience from EXP Share will be affected by the egg.

    For an example, if a normally the participating get 100 exp and the non-participating Pokemon will get nothing, without EXP share...

    In Gen 6, with EXP Share on, instead of splitting[1] the exp amongst everyone, the participating Pokemon would get 100 exp (with no Lucky Egg, the yield 100% of the total exp gained for each participating), while another non-participating Pokemon (with no Lucky Egg, the yield 50% of the total exp gained for each non-participating Pokemon).

    Giving the participating Pokemon a Lucky Egg (adds 50% exp), will yield them 150% or 150 exp [100 + (100*.5)], and giving the non-participating a Lucky Egg they will get 75%, or 75 exp [50 + (50*.5)].

    A = Participant
    B = Non-participant
    C = Non-participant
    + = Lucky Egg

    No EXP share, no Lucky Eggs:

    A = 100%
    B = 0%
    C = 0%

    With EXP Share, no Lucky Eggs:

    A = 100%
    B = 50%
    C = 50%

    With EXP Share, two Lucky Eggs (x1.5):

    A+ = 150% (x1.5)
    B = 50% (x1)
    C+ = 75% (x1.5)

    1 The item Exp. Share will revert to Exp. All as in Generation I, where when one Pokémon holding this item participates in battle, all other Pokémon in the team receive experience as well. Unlike in Generation I, the experience is not split but rather received by all Pokémon. This means that the participating Pokemon receive 100% experience, while non-participating Pokémon receive 50% experience. Source.

  • There are a few things which increase XP gain at the end of a battle, for example: A traded Pokemon gains more XP naturally The Lucky Egg held item The Exp. Point O-Power Pokemon Amie Affection I know that Exp. Share gives half of the earned XP to the other Pokemon in the party. But do these XP increases affect the halved XP total when using Exp. Share? I'm specifically asking about the active or 'battling' Pokémon. If this Pokémon is holding the Lucky Egg, or has maxed out Affection etc, does the boost get applied to all other Pokemon in the party?

  • I have traveled to the Ender "End" and beat the Ender Dragon at least 2 times. I have begun to notice that after killing the Ender Dragon, an egg appears near the Portal back to the Overworld. I guess it is the Ender Dragon egg, but when i hit it, the egg just "teleports" somewhere else. How do i get it to go to the overworld. When i am in creative mode, I looked in the spawn egg section and find no Ender Dragon spawn egg. So what do i do to spawn the ender dragon in the overworld? And do i surround the ender dragon egg with tnt to destroy it? Help please

  • Releasing a pokemon user1306322

    This article on Bulbapedia says that "Released Pokémon cannot be found again in the wild". Does it mean that (a) only the very same pokemon you just released, with all its stats, learned moves and the nickname it had when you released it won't be found anywhere in the game (wild) so that you won't ever be able to encounter it again and re-capture, or (b) does it mean the whole pokemon type will be "blacklisted" from suddenly appearing in the wild to attack you? I haven't ever released a pokemon when I played, so I don't quite understand what that rule means.

  • Politoed is an evolution from Poliwhirl when traded holding a King's Rock. It is one of Poliwag's final forms, the other being Poliwrath. In Bulbapedia says some moves can only be learned by breeding, and this is my question. When you Breed an evolved Pokemon, you will always get the first evolution. In cases like this (evolution by trade), does it work the same way? If I put 2 Politoeds in day care (male and female), will they produce an egg of Poliwag or Politoed?

It seems that the only contributing factor is that I end up signed in with the same Nintendo Network ID, so as long as my network ID remains the same, I can withdraw stored Pokemon regardless of what save-game or cartridge is in my system, correct? While I'm reasonably confident it works the way I think it does, past
