Default Whats best, priming before or in the bottle?

I am starting to plan for my first bottling session and had a few questions

I read on how to brew to put the priming sugar into a second bucket, and add the beer to that an then bottle it, as apposed to putting the sugar in each bottle. Whats best, and why?

It's much easier to control the carbonation when you bulk prime.

In my opinion, bottling is hassle enough, especially when you first start out, no need to add complexity by having to add sugar to each bottle.
