This page provides tips & strategies on how to get money (Poke Dollars) as fast as possible in the games Pokemon Sword and Shield. Read on for information about items and moves that can get you quick cash in a flash.
List of Contents
The items Amulet Coin and Luck Incense have the effect of doubling the number of Poke Dollars earned from a trainer battle. Both of these items exist, but unfortunately their effects do not stack, so there's no point in having more than one of them on one Pokemon in your party at a time.
|Amulet Coin||When a Pokemon holding this item participates in a trainer battle, the cash reward at the end of the battle will be doubled.
Location: Motostoke Outskirts
|Luck Incense||When a Pokemon holding this item participates in a trainer battle, the cash reward at the end of the battle will be doubled.
Location: Wedgehurst Incense Shop (11,000 Poke Dollars)
There are a select few moves that yield the player a few Poke Dollars at the end of the battle.
|Pay Day||At the end of the battle, the player will receive 5 Poke Dollars multiplied by the user's level for each time the move was used.|
|G-Max Gold Rush||The signature move of Gigantamax Meowth. It inflicts the Confusion status effect on all opposing Pokemon. In addition, the player will receive 100 Pokemon dollars times Meowth's level for each time the move was used.|
Items received as rewards from Max Raids can be sold as a high price to shops; cash-equivalent items like Stardust and TRs (technical records) are especially choice finds which come up frequently in Max Raid rewards. Keep all the Exp. Candy for your own use and sell the rest for quick cash.
|The more you progress through the game, the harder the Max Raid battles will get, so start collecting from early in the game.|
When you talk to the man standing next to the flea market in Stow-on-Side, he will buy a cash-equivalent item from you at a high price once per day. He'll pay a price significantly higher than the standard market price, so be sure to bring the item he wants every day to claim a fat reward.
|Itme Name||Market Price||Errand Reward|
|If you don't have the specific cash-equivalent item the man requests, go to the Wild Area to search for it or participate in Max Raid Battles until you earn one as a reward.|
After entering the Hall of Fame, you can challenge the Champion Cup again any time at Wyndon Stadium. You can earn a variety of random Poke Ball types and cash-equivalent items each time you win the Champion Cup.
|In the Champion Cup, the standard trainers' Pokemon will be around Level 55, the Gym Leaders' Pokemon will be around Level 60, and Leon and Hop's Pokemon will be around Level 70, so keep that in mind when choosing Pokemon to participate.|
Every time you use Gigantamax Meowth, you have an opportunity to earn heaps of money after the battle. When you use Meowth in each battle of Champion Cup, you can rake in around 30,000 Poke Dollars in a single battle, and have your pockets bursting in just one trip through the Cup.
|Because you can only use Dynamax once per battle, be sure to have other strong Pokemon to back up Meowth in clearing the Cup.|
