So, I've been looking up exp share vs. lucky egg stuff all over, but it seems there is no clear difference between them, however, after searching I found this: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/925602-pokemon-pearl-version/45046905
anyway, according to the 5th post by MLBloomy, here's what I understand:
exp share takes the fair share for the holder, regardless of participation, and if they participate, gives another half of that (equivalent to 1.5 bonus) and splits the remainder among the other participants.
whereas, lucky egg gives 1.5 bonus to the holder only if they participate and does not take exp away from other participants.
Now, here are my questions; please answer them all at once.
Is my understanding of how they work correct?
Is MLBloomy correct about their function?
If MLBloomy is incorrect, please explain the difference.
EDIT: for clarity, I prefer to place a pokemon holding exp share as first in party, then switch them out with a stronger pokemon. I guess the question I should have been asking is "Is it more efficient to use exp share to train pokemon or to use lucky egg?", however, thank you very much for answering my other question, which was "am I understanding this post?"
