Shane Williams

This page will offer you a comprehensive guide on how to make money - aka Poké dollars - in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet (SV). You’ll find tips on all the best methods to making money quickly by selling items and winning Pokémon battles!

You can sell lots of items for cash at the Pokemon Center.

Best Way to Make Money in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

As you start your journey through Paldea you may come across several Pokemon Centers and Shops which offer items you can purchase like "Ultra Ball" iconUltra Balls and "Hyper Potion" iconHyper Potions. However, these items aren’t cheap, so you’ll need to find ways to build up your savings, so you can purchase these items when you need them.

Sell Items

Head to East Province (Area Three) or Asado Desert, as this area has lots of items you can pick up to sell for a good amount of Poke Dollars. Ideally, you’ll want to search both areas and gather everything, then visit any Pokemon Center and sell them. Below you can see what items you can find:

Item Value
"Smooth Rock" iconSmooth Rock 2,000
"Moon Stone" iconMoon Stone 750
"Damp Rock" iconDamp Rock 2,000
"Star Piece" iconStar Piece 1,500
"Stardust" iconStardust 1,500
"Soft Sand" iconSoft Sand 750
"Comet Shard" iconComet Shards 6,000

Get The Amulet Coin

The next step on your money making journey is to acquire the "Amulet Coin" iconAmulet Coin which can be obtained by defeating 5 Trainers in West Province (Area 3). If you’re struggling to find them, then you can find all the Trainer locations in this area on our map. Once you’ve defeated at least five trainers, speak with the Pokemon League Representative at the Pokémon Center Medali and he’ll give you the Amulet Coin.

Defeat Trainers

You’ll want to give this item to a Pokemon in your team to hold, then the prize money will be doubled as long as you use them at least once during the battle. With this item in your possession you’ll want to continue defeating Trainers, as this will reward you with lots of cash if you are fighting Trainer at a slightly higher level then you.

There are tons of Trainers ready and waiting to be battled!

Farm The Academy Ace Tournament

Additionally, if you’ve beaten all 8 Gyms in the Starfall Street Path, then you can keep taking on the Academy Ace Tournament with a Pokemon holding the Amulet Coin.
