Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does the amount of moves it takes to beat a Pokemon affect the amount of Exp. points you get?

For example, if you one-hit KO a Pokemon and get, say, 65 Exp., and then knock one out in two moves, would you receive more/less Exp. points?

I'm pretty sure it does matter how many moves you use but I think levels matter too.

The only factors here are growth rate and EXP yield. Amount of moves has nothing to do with it. Other external factors are: Exp. power in BW/BW2, Exp O-Power in XY/ORAS and the Lucky Egg.
Hope this helps!

No, The amount of moves don't matter. Exp differs by growth rate. Say you are training Pokemon in granite cave. Ralts beat a makuhita and gain 100 exp. points. The exp bar moves just a little bit.
But if you're training Taillow and it gets 100 exp. points, then the exp bar will move by a lot.
