The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Amulet Coin is obtained from North Medali, given to you by the league rep if you can beat five trainers nearby. It's definitely worth getting, as the Amulet Coin allows players to make money fast, as it literally doubles all money you earn from trainers, gym leaders or even the Elite Four if you give it to a Pokemon to hold in the battle. Have them enter the battle for even just one round, and you can double your rewards!

Clearly it's worth having, especially considering that you might be fighting trainers a lot less in this game. We'll explain in more detail below how to get the Amulet Coin in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and earn money quick with its mysterious financial power.

The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Amulet Coin is given to you by the Pokemon League Rep - the man in the suit with the moustache - at the Northeast Medali Pokemon Center. However, you need to beat five trainers in West Province (Area Three) before he'll hand it over.

This shouldn't be too hard if you've reached this point in the game organically, and if you've got our Pokemon Scarlet and Violet tips down. Trainers in this area have Pokemon of Level 30-35, and it's up to you which ones you fight - plus you can always go straight back to the Pokemon Center and heal after every one you defeat. To find them easily, simply take the path marked above, going Northeast from the town towards the mountains, and you'll encounter trainers along the way standing at the edge of the path. When you've beaten five of them, head back to the League Rep and he'll give you the Amulet Coin!

Once you have the Amulet Coin, go into the "Other Items" section of your bag and give it to any Pokemon to hold. They'll equip it - then from that point on any time that Pokemon goes into battle, assuming you win, you'll get double the payout! That applies even if the Pokemon holding the Amulet Coin faints or is only in the battle for a single turn at the start - so it's not too hard to make money this way. Go fight some more trainers or Pokemon Scarlet and Violet gym leaders, and you'll be Paldea's wealthiest preteen in no time.
