In-Game Indicator

Exp. Share Indicator

When you equip Exp Share, a Blue Light Bulb will appear on top of your Pokemon's Health Bar. This indicates that Exp. Share's bonus effect is active.

Get Experience Points for One Aipom in About 10 seconds

Idle Exp Share - Idle (1)9:54 Exp Share - Idle (2)9:42
Aipom Exp Share - Before HuntingBefore Hunting Exp Share - After HuntingAfter Hunting
Experience points when hunting Aipom is about 12 seconds for Exp Share (12 seconds at level 1)

Standing idle for about 10 seconds equipped with Exp Share gives the same amount of experience points as one Aipom.

Prevents Leveling Up If the Next Level Is an Evolution Level

Exp. Share prevents the bearer from leveling up if the next level is when the Pokemon evolves. However, this only occurs when gaining experience while being idle. Gaining experience the normal way like being near an ally when they defeat a wild Pokemon allows the bearer to level up. Pokemon who don't evolve like Pikachu are still able to level up continuously throughout the match.

Works If there are Two Exp. Share in the Team

If two allied Pokemon with Exp. Share are the same level, but are lower than the rest of the team, both Pokemon get the passive experience points.

Generally, it is best to equip Exp. Share to Supporter type Pokemon because of the likelihood of them being the lowest level in the team. However, Pokemon who are not Supporters can benefit mainly on the bonus movement speed the item gives.

Exp. Share Test

Experience Rate Test

Condition Image
Idle W/ Exp. Share
Idle W/o Exp. Share

The purpose of this test was to determine the rate of experience points given by Exp. Share. The test was verified by equipping Exp. Share (Level 1) and staying idle while teammates are regularly leveling up.

Get Experience Points for One Aipom in About 10 seconds

As a result of the test, the Pokemon with Exp. Share was able to reach Level 4 18 seconds faster than the Pokemon without Exp. Share! You can get the experience points of one Aipom in about 10 seconds.

Same Level Test

Experience Rate Comparision of With and Without Exp Share
No matter how long the Pokemon waited, it remained at the same level.

The purpose of this test was to determine if the effects of the Exp. Share persists if there are two Pokemon with the same (lowest) level in the team. The test was conducted by having two level 1 Pokemon on the same team go idle, and see if the effects of Exp. Share activates or not.

Only Activates When There Is One Lowest Level

As a result of the test, it was found that even if you are at the lowest level in the team, you will not be able to receive the automatic experience value of Exp. Share if your allies also have the lowest level Pokemon.

Two Exp. Share Test

Exp Share - Two Exp Share Test

The purpose of this test was to determine if two Pokemon with Exp. Share in the same team will receive the passive bonus experience. The test was conducted by having two allied Pokemon with Exp. Share go idle, and see if both of them will get the passive experience or not. Both Pokemon are the same level, but are lower than the rest of the team.

Works with Two Exp. Share in the Team

As a result of the test, it was found that if two Pokemon on the same team have Exp. Share, have the same level, but are the lowest level in the team, both Pokemon gets the passive experience points from the item.

The 'Same Level Test' is still Correct

Although this test seems contrary to the findings of the Same Level Test, it is important to note that the result of this test can only happen if both Pokemon have Exp. Share. The findings of the Same Level Test is still correct because that test was conducted with only one Pokemon having Exp. Share equipped.

Evolution Level Test

The purpose of this test was to verify if Exp. Share prevents Pokemon from leveling up if the next level is their evolution. The test was conducted with two separate friendly matches with all bot controlled allies and enemies. The first test was conducted by remaining idle for the entire match using Pikachu, a Pokemon that does not evolve in Pokemon UNITE, noting each time it levels up. The second test was conducted in the same manner but instead using Slowbro, a Pokemon that evolves at level 4.

Only Prevents Pokemon With Evolutions from Leveling Up

Does the extra XP for the ally killing the pokemon only happen if the XP share holder is the lowest level on the team? or is that part of the items effects active all the time?

9 Anonymousover 2 years

I'm not sure if it's stated here, but does the exp. share bonus for the pokemon without exp. share stack? For example, say we have 3 pokemon in a lane together, two are equipped with exp. share and the last one (refer as pokemon X) without it; and that the exp. share bonus is an additional 50%. Would pokemon X then gain 150%, 175% or 200% of the exp?
