Discover how to efficiently acquire more earnings in Alola

This article will highlight the best ways on how to obtain more earnings in addition to gaining more Exp in Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Basic Information on Obtaining money

In Pokemon Sun and Moon, generally speaking there are two ways to obtain money (pokedollars) through the course of your adventure: defeating trainers, and selling items.

Unfortunately, the Key Item Vs. Seeker doesn’t exist which makes trainer rematches limited unlike its predecessors. However, it is possible to battle many Pokemon Trainers for a rematch during the post-game such as those mentioned during the story.

After finishing the game for the first time, you can re-battle several major characters to gain more pokedollars. It is recommended to choose trainer rematches which reward the highest amount of earnings.

How to increase the money earned

For Sun and Moon, the money earned can be multiplied by equipping the Pokemon with a held item or using moves that increase the amount earned. Since the effects can be stacked, it is possible to earn quadruple earnings. These can be achieved through the following:

● Equipping an Amulet Coin / Luck Incense

The amount of pokedollars earned can be doubled if the lead pokemon is equipped with an Amulet Coin or Luck Incense. The Amulet Coin can be found at Paniola Ranch in Akala Island.

● Using the Move Happy Hour

When your Pokemon uses the move Happy Hour during battle, the amount of money will also double. One of the Pokemon that can learn this move is Munchlax which can be obtained by those who have bought the game early.

Recommended trainers to battle to obtain high earnings

It is recommended to battle specific trainer classes such as the Gentleman and the Madame since they can reward a huge sum of earnings. In addition to using the above mentioned items and moves.

Recommended places to obtain high earnings

  • Wimpod

Defeating Wimpod at the rocky fields at Route 8 in Akala Island will reward you with valuable items that can be sold at pokemarts. This method is recommended as its easily accessible early in the game.

  • Pokémon league (Post-Game)

After finishing the game, you can challenge the Pokemon League for a rematch. If you can successfully defend your title as the champion, you will be rewarded with a total of 60000 pokedollars.

It can be estimated that a well-structured team could defeat Pokemon League in a rematch which could last for about 30 minutes to an hour. Although each of the Elite Four’s party Pokemon remain the same, their levels have increased significantly. It is therefore recommended to take precautionary measures.
