Upcoming remakes of “Pokemon Diamond and Pearl” have released the latest details on the new mechanics. However, fans have mixed opinions on the game’s most notable change: the Exp Share.
Find out why some fans are complaining about this element of the game.
Controversy over “Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl”

According to a report by Nintendo’s life On Thursday, October 14, the Sinnoh-focused games caused problems among fans of the mainline of Pokemon. In fact, the Exp. Sharing can no longer be turned off by players in future remakes.
The Exp.Share is an item that grants experience to the Pokémon that participates in a battle. In next-gen versions, all Pokémon in the party can gain experience without needing to appear in combat. However, players still have the freedom to activate it or not.
The latest update to the “Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl” franchise revealed that the Exp. Sharing will now be permanent. Many Pokémon players complain about the recent mechanics.
While this looks good, as Pokemon leveling is now easier, those who engage in battles for EV training are affected. Apparently, fan outrage pointed out that the game was getting “too easy”.
EV or effort values are considered key stat points given to different Pokémon. They vary in distribution on each type and level. To give you an idea about it, you can get them by fighting wild trainers or the like.
For fans, the remakes of “Pokemon Diamond and Pearl” could be interfering with their EV training. This is because competitive players only want the ideal stat points for their Pokémon. If EV is distributed everywhere, important stats will not be prioritized accordingly.
TMs are now single-use in Pokemon Sinnoh game remakes
Aside from the annoying part of EXP that will no longer be disabled, “Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl” fans have another headache to deal with.
The remakes are also expected to bring the old mechanics back to technical machines (MTs), according to Kotaku. Players could only use them once for a particular Pokémon.
TMs are what make up a Pokemon moveset. These items teach a Pokémon a new movement. Older games such as “Pokemon Leaf Green” and “Pokemon Ruby” remained true to single-use TMs, but newer-generation games implemented permanent use of TMs.
For those who are planning to purchase “Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl”, they will be available on November 19 for Nintendo Switch users. To pre-order, you can visit the official shop for more details.
