The EXP Share has gotten a significant change in the Gen 3 games. One of these games from Gen 3 is Emerald. They work a bit differently, but the concept is still there.
That’s why we’re here to teach you how to get EXP Share in Pokemon Emerald and other information pertaining to it.
To give you an idea, in the Gen 1 games, the EXP Share worked automatically, giving EXP shared to all the Pokemon involved in the battle.
In Gen 2, Pokemon could hold items, so the Pokemon that held the EXP Share got a portion of the EXP. In Gen 3, it is a bit more intricate, and that’s what we’ll be discussing.
How do you use EXP share, and how does it work?
How to use
Before we get to the part where you get EXP Share in Pokemon Emerald, there are some important details that you need to know. When it comes to using it, simply let a Pokemon Hold the EXP Share.
The Pokemon isn’t needed to be in the battle for it to get the EXP. Let another or multiple Pokemon do the battling, and the holder will always get 50% of the EXP obtained from the enemy.
If any Pokemon in battle fainted, they don’t get EXP. That also means that the other Pokemon involved in the battle will get the EXP.
No EXP is wasted, and if the holder of the EXP Share faints, then EXP is shared normally for the participants in the battle.
Nice EXP Trick
Have the Pokemon that holds the EXP Share start the battle. Swap it out to the Pokemon that will do the battle.
The holder will get the 50% default from the EXP Share but at the same time another percentage from the 50% that those that participated in the battle.
If only the holder and one Pokemon went into battle, then the holder would gain 75% of the entire EXP.
If there are more Pokemon, just divide the 50% with all the involved Pokemon and add it to the 50%. Then again, 75% is the highest EXP that can be achieved. That’s a nice trick that you can use when you get EXP Share in Pokemon Emerald.

Once you have delivered the Letter, go back to Mr. Stone, and he’ll give you the EXP Share as a reward.

Frequently Asked Questions

How the EXP Sharing Works
50% is what the holder gets. That’s fixed all the time if the holder isn’t in battle. If multiple Pokemon are in battle, they share the 50% while the other 50% will always go to the holder.
The holder gets 50%, and if three Pokemon were in battle, they would share the other 50% or, in this case, around 16%.
What is the fastest way to get EXP share in Emerald?
The fastest way is to do the story and Mr. Stone’s request to deliver the letter. Unlike FireRed and LeafGreen, Emerald gives you the EXP Share when you finish the task. You don’t need to have 50 Unique Pokemon or do whatever task.
You can get it early in the story when you just beat 2 Gym Leaders. The Lilycove Lottery is all about luck, so that takes too long, and you won’t have access to the Department Store until later anyway. If you want, you can also use a cheat.
That’s all you need to know on how to get EXP Share in Pokemon Emerald. Unlike the previous games before Gen 3 and even FireRed and LeafGreen, you can get multiple EXP Shares here as long as you’re lucky.
When you have more than one EXP Share held by Pokemon, the EXP will be shared equally by those not in battle and smaller for those that were.
The fact that you can get the EXP Share so early in Emerald means that you can evolve a lot of your Pokemon early on.
Level t em up and evolve them as soon as you can so that you can make a formidable team later on.
