If you find yourself wanting a little more money in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, then you should get your hands on the Amulet Coin item.

Things are not cheap in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Something as simple as making sure your supply of Potions is stocked up can be tough.

Luckily, there is a very handy item called the Amulet Coin that allows players to double the money they earn in battles, but acquiring it can be a little tricky. Fortunately, we’re here to help.

How Do You Get the Amulet Coin Item in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

Players will receive the Amulet Coin from the League Rep (the men in suits who stand outside of Poke Centers) in the Northeast Medali Poke Center.

To earn it, you’ll need to defeat five Pokemon trainers in West Province (Area Three). Your Pokemon should be level 30 to 35 to beat trainers in that area.

However, if you start with the correct story path in Scarlet and Violet, then you will reach Medali at that level naturally.

You will need to make sure you’ve unlocked Koraidon or Miraidon’s ability to swim, as you’ll need to cross over the rivers near Cascarrafa to the West or East Province (Area Two) to reach Medali.

What Does the Amulet Coin Do in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

The Amulet Coin doubles any money that you earn from battles. This is especially effective if used when battling Gym Leaders.

It is worth noting that the Pokemon holding this item does not have to be the first one in your party. So long as it enters the battle at some point, your money will be doubled.

How to Use the Amulet Coin in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

To equip the Amulet Coin, simply open your bag, head into your inventory, and select it from the Other Items tab.

When choosing which Pokemon to give it to, opt for one that wouldn’t benefit from other items. Don’t worry about your Pokemon fainting, as it works so long as they participate in the battle.

For a more detailed guide on how to use the Amulet Coin, continue reading:

  • Press X to open up the menu.
  • Select Bag by pressing A.
  • Head to Other Items by pressing right on the D-Pad four times.
  • Scroll down until you find the Amulet Coin, and press A.
  • Choose Give to Pokemon and then select the Pokemon to equip it on.

After it is equipped, it will be used automatically whenever the Pokemon holding it enters the battle. It is a great way to make a lot of money very quickly.

It is a permanent item that works while your Pokemon keep it equipped. You can switch it between Pokemon at any time, too, so don’t worry about it being tied to one Pokemon forever.

Of course, once you have lots of Poke Dollars, you may want to turn your attention to something shinier. So, make sure to check out how to get the Shiny Charm in Scarlet and Violet.
