PokeYen is really important in PokeMMO. Because you can buy Pokemons, vanity, utility, pokeballs, and more with it. In fact, you need to farm a lot of PokeYen to enjoy PokeMMO. It’s an MMORPG after all. To save you the grind, I’ve listed the best money making methods in PokeMMO.
If you don’t have any time for farming, you can always buy PokeMMO reward points with real money. It’s a microtransaction. Then, you can sell items bought by reward points on the market. Such as ocarinas, donator status tickets, name change ticket, vanity items, charms, luxury lures, etc.
Of course, most people prefer not to spend real money on a game. That includes me too. So, let’s get to it. Here are the top 11 money farming methods of PokeMMO:
1. GTL Sniping
GTL sniping is the best money-making method of PokeMMO by far. Easiest too if you know what you’re doing. You must know the prices before you start GTL sniping. Though it should not take too long to do market research.
Most people don’t know about breeding and natures. That’s why they sell their valuable Pokemons for really cheap prices. For example, 31 speed abra might be valued around 5k. However, if it’s modest or timid, that value goes way up to 30k, or 50k. Same with dittos. So, how do we exploit that? You simply search for speed 31 modest, adamant, timid, and jolly and insta refresh the research. Someone will list their Pokemon for only its speed value and you can make lots of profit by re-selling it. Same goes for attack 31 adamant and special attack 31 modest. You need to learn egg groups and breeding for this method. Some egg groups worth money and some don’t.
Same thing goes for Alpha Pokemons too. If its special attack 31 + speed 31 modest / timid Alpha, it costs lots more. But seller might not now about natures and list it for regular 2×31 alpha price. Also check for particles on Alphas, some cost more than others.
GTL sniping can be done with shinies and vanities too. But you need to have lots of Pokeyen for that. That’s for experienced players. Stick with natured Pokemon sniping until you make good money.
I made tens of millions with this method. At some point I had 1000 items listed on GTL with 4 characters.
2. Berry Farming
Berry farming is the second most profitable money farming method of PokeMMO. Though it needs some learning and investing beforehand. Because it’s a little complex for newbies.
First of all, you must unlock farming region Unova with your main and maybe couple of alt characters. Mistralton has 72 plots, Abundant Shrine has 84, that’s total 156 plots for Unova. More characters = more berries. For in depth farming guide, check this article on PokeMMO forum. It teaches you how to farm effectively.
Farming has one problem though. You must water your berries in time, otherwise they fade away and you lose your seeds, time, and investment. That’s why im not into farming in PokeMMO but my friends make huge money with it.
3. Gym Rerun
Gym rerun is very profitable money-making method. Trainers give really good money, especially if you’re on charms and amulets coins.
First thing to know, trainer battles reset every 18 hours. After defeating a trainer, you must wait 18 hours to re-battle. They give lots of poke-yen but you need to have strong 100 level Pokemons. Preferably 2 Typhlosion and 2 Blastoise with battle spout for crowd control.
Also, you need to unlock all regions and memorize the trainer locations. Because money charms and amulet coins expire in 1 hour, speed is the essence. Nothing is easy right?
4. Ditto Farming
Ditto farming can be done with a Pokemon with false swipe and spore. Substitute is the most important skill if you use Breloom for hunting. Here is the complete ditto farming guide for beginners from PokeMMO forum page.
What kind of dittos worth more? 2×31, adamant 31, modest 31, timid 31, jolly 31, and +150 overall stat ones. What about trashy dittos? You stash them in your bank and when you have 60 trashy dittos, you sell ditto box for a good sum of money. For more details, check out my ditto pricing guide.
Best place for ditto farming is Desert Underpass in Fallarbor Town / Hoenn. You can find dittos in other places to but Desert Underpass is by far the fastest farming location.
You can always sell popular Pokemons by breeding 2×31 version of them for profit. If you’re new to this, breed 2×31 Pokemons. Speed 31 + attack 31 or speed 31 + special attack 31. If they end up natured randomly, meaning timid, jolly, adamant, or modest, they will worth lot more. So, that’s more profit for you. You don’t have to breed same Pokemon either. If mother is female, father can be another Pokemon from same egg group, the child will be always mother’s species. Egg group breeding is important because male can be more common Pokemon which is cheaper.
Once you’re experienced in breeding, you can breed 3×31 or 6×31 natured popular Pokemons for more profit.
What’s more, you can hatch a shiny Pokemon from your eggs that worth millions of Pokeyen. Though chances are very low.
For this farming method, you need a level 100 Meowth with pay day skill and pickup ability. It’s not the most paying money-making method but it’s consistent. I believe there are other Pokemons who have this combination but can’t recall at the moment. I stick with the Meowth. If you’re going to level up your own Meowth, don’t let it evolve into a Persian. Because Persian loses pickup ability.
You gain cash because of payday and also make money by looting and selling items thanks to the pickup ability.
Pokemmo best Payday farm locations:
- Unova – Dragonspiral Tower – Bridge Fishing (Basculin, Dratini, Dragonair)
- Kanto – Five Island – Grass right next to the Pokecenter (Fearow, Pidgietto, Meowth) or Memorial Pillar grass (Hoppip)
- Hoenn – Battle Frontier – Artisan Cave (Smeargle)
- Sinnoh – Sunnyshore Town – Route 222 pyramid grass (Electabuzz, Luxio, Mr. Mime, Wingull, Luxio, Magnemite, Floatzel, and bunch more Pokemons)
7. Fossil Farming
Fossils are another great income source if farmed in properly. There might be other Pokemons with same utilities, but the most used Pokemon for fossil farming is Banette. Because it has thief skill for stealing fossils and frisk ability to check wild Pokemons held item. You also need a Pokemon with rock smash or ocarina for breaking stones. Check other PokeMMO utility Pokemons here.
Best fossil farming spot in PokeMMO is Kindle Road in Island One / Kanto. You simply break stones and Geodudes with fossils appear. Your Banette will tell if the geodude has fossil or not. So, if no fossil, run away. Got fossil? Use thief and steal it. Take it to your inventory from Banettes slot and keep smashing rocks.
Once all rocks smashed, leave the area and wait couple of minutes for rocks to respawn.
8. Everstone Farming
Everstone is a held item that is used for keeping the nature during breeding process. It is only obtainable by farming. So, it sells good and fast in global trade market. Farming it is not that hard either.
You need a Pokemon with thief skill and damp ability to prevent self-destruction moves Quagsire for example. It’s farmed in Mt. Moon in Kanto. Geodudes appear in horde of three.
9. Rare Pokemon Hunting
This one is a bit tricky. It’s tricky because you need to know which Pokemons are rare and is popular. But totally worth it because rare shiny Pokemons worth a lot.
For starters you can farm abras. They are popular and kinda rare because abras can teleport away. But if you use a Pokemon with mean look or taunt, abra can’t escape. Speed or special attack 31 abras worth great sum. Especially if they’re female because abra gender ratio is %25 female and %75 male. Another thing is nature. Modest, timid, jolly, and adamant abras with synchronize special ability worth a lot. Because synchronize pokemons are used for utility and shiny hunting.
Other popular rare Pokemons that I can think of:
10. Leveling Training Services
You need a level 100 Pokemon with strong horde clear skill such as waterspout, eruption, or surf. XP share item and Pokemon with sweet scent too for hordes.
How to do it? Simply type WTS XP and EV training services in the trade chat. It might take a while, but someone will eventually whisper you.
Agree on price and start leveling the Pokemon you’re given. Then, deliver the Pokemon and collect your sweet PokeYens.
11. Alpha Hunting
Alpha Pokemons appears every now and then. You can see them on the map. They worth a lot of money too. Therefore, you shouldn’t miss any alpha spawn. You can make good money by selling alphas especially if you’ve all the regions unlocked. Joining an active team is great for Alpha hunting because members share the alpha spawns with each other.
Be careful, Alpha Pokemons are really strong. You might have to fight it multiple times before managing to catch an Alpha.
