A player (HeroOfTime_99) was confused when he found out he gained 0 XP after using a lucky Egg and transferred over hundred Pokemon.
“I used an egg and transferred about 100 pokemon over the half hour expecting to come up a huge net of XP and didnt notice any change at all. When did they remove XP gain from transferring? And what is the quickest way to power level now? I’m stuck at 20 after taking a long break.”
Oh well… as you know it. The player put the cart before horse, he supposed to evolve the Pokemon first then transfer for space and not the other way round. Fortunately, at least, he did it on a day where he gains double candies 🙂

Edit: I am not a smart man… I’ve dun goof’d. Disclaimer: this was not a karma grab… I literally sat in a buffalo wild wings today and transfered about 100 mons with a lucky egg on wondering wtf was going wrong lol
Edit 2: might as well post proof of my stupidity. I know a lot of candies doesn’t really prove anything per say but I had primarily ghastlys from the Halloween ghost boost. If my journal showed transfer history I’d post it lol. Thanks for not blowing me up Silph. You guys have always been awesome.
Edit 3: here’s my start date and paltry level to kinda prove I took a long break I know this isn’t really conclusive but I just wanted to try and prove it for everyone who’s day I made with my idiocy. So funny. I’ve been out all day so I expected to come home to an upvote or two and one response tellin g me they patched it ages ago, forgetting completely it was never this way…

It normally gives zero xp.
The lucky egg doubles that. To zero xp. – merreborn
2 * 0 XP = 0 XP
Technically, true – chessc
Dudes name is hero of time. Seems like an ocarina of time reference. Doesn’t sound casual gamer enough to be this foolish. – Confuzet
I swear it’s true. I put the game down for a good while and misremembered how the mechanic works. I popped a lucky today while at lunch after some shopping and started transferring. After about 50 I remembered that sometimes you should stop for a second to let it give you the XP. I saw 0 and wondered if they changed it. – HeroOfTime_99
That’s like walking 50k and forgetting to put your eggs in the incubator. Love this guy lol. – Kingston228
I feel kinda bad that this is getting upvoted.. but I laughed and upvoted anyway. Does this make me a bad person.. – SuedeVeil
