With the right item, Gigantamax Meowth can turn into a money-spewing fountain in Pokémon Sword & Shield. Money is incredibly valuable in the late-game for one simple reason — you can use cash to buy vitamins that increase stats for your favorite Pokémon. That’s important if you want to master Max Raids in the end-game, and having an endless supply of quick money just makes everything easier in the long-run.
Using Meowth, it’s possible to earn 99,999 cash from a single battle. Even if you haven’t reached the end-game yet, Meowth can earn you huge amounts of cash per fight by combining two multipliers — Meowth’s Gold Rush move and an Amulet Coin. You won’t get the max amount of cash per battle, but you can still farm for easy cash at any point in the game. Below, I’ll explain exactly how this works, where to find your very own Meowth, and where to get the Amulet Coin.

Using Gigantamax Meowth, it’s possible to multiply your cash rewards from completing battles. Add the Amulet Coin, and you’re doubling your rewards again! The process is simple, but first let’s talk about how to get the Amulet Coin, and how to get a Meowth.
- How To Get An Amulet Coin: Found behind the sign to Galar Mine #2 in the Motostoke Outskirts area.
- How To Get Gigantamax Meowth: Mystery Gift for early adopters — or you can trade for standard (Gigantamax) Meowth in Turffield. Talk to an NPC trainer in the Gym to trade.
- Gigantamax Meowth can appear as a Max Raid opponent in the following Wilds areas: Dusty Bowl, Giant’s Seat, Stony Wilderness
This trick requires a Gigantamax Meowth, so it only works in Dynamax Battles. Equip the Amulet Coin Held Item on Meowth, then enter a Dynamax Battle – you can farm the Champion Cup and re-battle trainers after you’ve finished the story.
To earn 99,999 — the max amount of cash possible — you need to enter Meowth’s Gigantamax Form and use his special G-Max Gold Rush move three times. Each time you use G-Max Gold Rush, you multiply the cash reward amount for the battle by x100. Use it three times will multiply your reward by x300. Carrying the Amulet Coin doubles your rewards, so you’re getting x600 cash rewards per battle.
You’ll need to be high level, and you’ll need to be able to win even if you waste your three turns as a Dynamax Form. To get the maximum amount of cash per battle, you’ll need to reach Level 84 with Gigantamax Meowth. Save up Rare Candy or use your EXP Candy to rapidly level up Meowth, and you’ll be good to go.
