Money pays for Potions, Pokeballs, Clothes, lots of things. This guide shows you a very easy trick for How To Make Lots Of Money In Pokemon Sword & Shield using a combination of special battles and particular Pokemon abilities.
The beginning of Pokemon is very generous with the cash. You start with around 30,000 and making a few grand here and there is quite simple and natural throughout most of the story. However, with a bit of clever combat, you can earn yourself a lot more money during high stakes gym battles.
How To Make Lots Of Money In Pokemon Sword & ShieldFor this to work you need a Gigantamax Meowth. Not the special Galarian version, the original Meowth. You can trade one for a Galarian Meowth in the Grass Gym near the start of the game. Meowth has PayDay, which is a decent ability for earning a few extra coins but it’s not much.
However, his Dynamax ability is another story altogether. Use Meowth in a Gym Battle and Dynamax him. Then use his Gold Rush abilities 3 times, over 3 rounds. This causes the opponent to drop money on the floor but it can be a lot of money.
At the end of the grass gym at the start of the game the Gym Leader dropped 3,200. Because of Meowth’s Dynamax ability, I got an additional 11,400, almost 4x the amount. As I said before, it only works well in Gym battles, and especially at the end of the game, but it’s a great way of earning a lot of cash on your journey.
There are alternative ways. There is an Amulet Coin near the cave entrance on Motostoke Outskirts and you can buy Lucky Incense in Hulbury market, both of which double prize money from trainer and gym fights.
