Amulet Coin Location in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
The Amulet Coin doubles the amount of prize money you get for defeating any trainer in Paldea, which includes Gym Leaders, Elite Four, and the Top Champion. Therefore, it is best to pick up this useful item at the beginning of your trip!
Since the Amulet Coin is classified as a held item, you’ll need to give it to one of your Pokémon, then make sure that Pokémon joins the battle at least once to get double the cash prize for defeating a trainer.
To get the Amulet Coin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you have to Defeat five trainers in the Western Province location (Area Three), then talk to the League Representative in the beautiful outfit from the eastern Pokemon Center in Medali.. He will then give you the Amulet Coin as a reward.
You’ll want your Pokemon lineup to be in your mid-thirties to take on these trainers.
There are plenty of trainers you can take on in the area, but here are five trainer locations near Medali to save you some time:
Western Province (Area Three) Trainer location 1
Western Province (Area Three) Trainer location 2
Western Province (Area Three) Trainer location 3
Western Province (Area Three) Trainer location 4
Western Province (Area Three) Trainer location 5
Once you’ve defeated five trainers in the Western Province (Area 3), return to the League Representative in the eastern Medali Pokémon Center to get the Charm Coin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Remember, the Amulet Coin is classified as a held item, so give it to one of your Pokémon, and remember to have that Pokémon join the battle at least once for double the cash prize for defeating trainers.

Easy method of farming money in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
In addition to getting the Amulet Coin early to double your earnings from defeating trainers, there’s a faster method of farming money in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
With thanks to Arekkz games on YouTube to detail this method, the easiest way to farm money in Scarlet and Violet is collect and sell shiny items found in the muddy ruins of the Eastern Province (Area Three), or the sand dunes of the Asado Desert in the Western Province (Area Two).
Ideally, you are looking Stardust, Rare Bones, Smooth Rock, Heat Rock and Damp Rock – with the rocks only appearing in the Eastern province (Area Three) of these two places, as far as we could see.
It’s also worth selling evolution items like Thunder Stones, Fire Stones, and Moon Stones if you no longer need them.
When using the farming method to find items, look for the glowing areas on the ground. We like to farm the ruins more than the desert, as the sparkles are easier to make out, and you get smooth, hot, wet rocks here. Although, the desert is easier to navigate as it is just one long stretch of sand.
If you have Pokémon in your party with the “Collect” ability, such as Meowth or Phanpy, take them with you while farming these areas. Occasionally they will all give you more items, and the higher their level, the better items they will find for you.
When you’re done farming, head back to a Pokemon Center and talk to the person in blue to sell your loot.
