Why did gamefreak make traded pokemon get boosted exp?

Is it to make traded pokemon useless in the game, so it levels too fast and it doesn't obey your orders

The main appeal to Pokemon has always been sharing your Mons with others.

It hasn't changed and it never will.

To encourage trading.
Due to confusion the FC has been removed.

While what you mentioned is certainly an unfortunate side effect if you had hoped to gain access to late game pokes early, I imagine the point is to allow trainers to lvl up traded pokes they recieve faster so that they are ready to join the main team with less work.
