Fainted lead experience oversight

Please note that this glitch only exists in the Japanese versions of the game, or is otherwise a glitch from a Pokémon game which was only released in Japan.

This article is incomplete. Please feel free to add any missing information about the subject. It is missing: Index number.

In Pokémon Red and Green, if the player enters a trainer battle with a lead Pokémon that is fainted, the opposing trainer's lead Pokémon will only give half of the experience points it is intended to. Despite fainted Pokémon being unable to receive experience points, the first Pokémon in the player's party will still factor into the calculation when dividing experience among battle participants.
