      The best and fastest way to farm money in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is to repeatedly challenge the Academy Ace Tournament held in Mesagoza. You can unlock this tournament by completing the main story and rematching all the gym leaders. This method allows you to participate in a series of battles to earn money by defeating the other trainers. Using the Amulet Coin to double your prize money, this method allows you to quickly fill your pockets with currency, between 26,000 and 34,000 per battle! You can also get some great items as a reward for winning, including Nuggets, Nature Mints and if you’re really lucky, even a Gold Bottle Cap!

      Why Chi-Yu?

      Dark moves work wonders in the Academy Ace Tournament, and Chi-Yu unleashes them better than any Pokemon in the game thanks to its 135 base Special Attack and Beads of Ruin ability that decreases the Special Defense stat of all Pokémon on the field other than the Pokémon with this Ability by 25%. This allows Chi-Yu to defeat most Pokémon it will face in the tournament with a single SpecialDark Pulse.

      The Setup

      To prepare for the farm you will need:

      • A level 100 Chi-Yu that knows the move SpecialDark Pulse and SpecialLava Plume
      • Amulet Coin held item
      • A controller with a turbo button (optional)

      Chi-Yu can be captured by first collecting the 8 Blue Ominous Stakes located in the north/east regions of the map. With all 8 stakes found, head to the Bamboo Forest. You will find Chi-Yu at the Firescourge Shrine, located in the cave, near the waterfall. See the Ruinous Pokemon Guide for more details.

      The Amulet Coin can be obtained from the Pokémon League Representative outside the Pokémon Center in Medali. Simply defeat 5 trainers in West Province (Area Three) and he will hand it over.

      Chi-Yu should be EV trained 252 HP, 252 Special Attack, 4 Defense. You should also give it the Amulet Coin to hold.

      Deposit all other Pokemon besides Chi-Yu into your PC box. This will prevent the game from asking you if you would like to switch Pokemon after defeating each one of your opponent’s Pokemon. This will speed up the farm by eliminating additional text and is necessary if you are using the turbo controller method.

      The Farm

      Fly to the Uva Academy in Mesagoza. Enter the school through the front doors and approach the gentleman behind the desk on the left.

      Without a Turbo Controller

      Speak to the gentleman to start the Acadamy Ace Tournament. You’re ready to go to battle! Simply use your Chi-Yu to decimate your opponents using a combination of SpecialDark Pulse and SpecialLava Plume, whichever attack hits for neutral or super effective damage.

      With a Turbo Controller

      Make sure SpecialDark Pulse is the top move in your move set. This will be the only move Chi-Yu uses. Barring an unlucky situation where you get hit with multiple critical hits, Chi-Yu will be able to handle every trainer you come across in the tournament.

      Next, set the turbo to continuously press the A button. You’ll need to find a way to keep that button held down, either with a rubber band, or some other method. Some controllers like the 8BitDo Pro 2 allow you to remap other buttons to the A button. This is useful because the P1 and P2 buttons on the back of the controller are more easily held down by wrapping a rubber band around the grip.

      Once your controller is set up, speak to the gentleman behind the desk to initiate the tournament. Sit back, relax, take a nap if you wish. Chi-Yuwill do all the work. Just be sure to save your game every so often in case the software crashes.
