Why does defeating trainer pokemon give you more exp?

Trained Pokemon presumably take more skill to defeat, on account of being trained and all.

They're stronger, the trainers are "skilled", and they're not mindless wild ones.
Probably

Because Gamefreak doesn't want you leveling your Pokemon up in two seconds by fighting wild Pokemon all the time.

In Gen 3 the Wild Pokes gave way more exp. than they do now... I remember getting my Mudkip to level 10 before the rival battle.

IIRC, the starter area pokemon always gave away the same amount of exp.

What I am more concerned is why do the trainer give you money if it's a friendly pokemon battle? Of course, excluding those that are mean, but still.
