Should I Throw Money Into the Pokemon Let’s Go Fountain?

The answer to the question “should I throw money into the fountain in Pokemon Let’s Go” is a definite YES. The reason is that putting money into the fountain can get you a Heart Scale; at least, the fountain in Cerulean City does. For more info on that, check out our Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee Heart Scale How to Get guide. To find the fountain in Cerulean City, find the Home of the Bike Maniac near the city entrance. From there, head to the right, and you’ll find the fountain next to the Bike Maniac.

When you interact with the fountain, you’ll have the option to put in either 50 or 500. We put in 50 Pokemon Dollars. After that, you have to play with your Pokemon and you’ll be rewarded with one Heart Scale. The fountain wouldn’t let us put more money in, presumably because the developers don’t want to let you farm Heart Scales too easily. So, we’re not sure what happens if you put in 500 into the fountain. As soon as we manage to figure it out, we’ll be sure to let you know right here, in this guide.

EDIT: According to our readers Brandon and Jessica, putting 500 into the fountain and playing with your Pokemon gets you a Tiny Mushroom, or shiny marble. Thanks, Brandon and Jessica!

So, long story short: Should you throw money into the fountain in Pokemon Let’s Go? Yes, absolutely. In case you need help with something else, check out our other Pokemon Let’s Go guides. There’s How to Evolve Meltan into Melmetal, How to Connect & Transfer from Pokemon Go, and more.

    I just put the money in and don’t remember the game indicating that I had to play with my pokemon, so I didn’t…

    It doesn’t save the status of what you just did, so I didn’t get rewarded with anything after spending 500. Just a heads up.

  5. R

    I received a Chalky Stone

  6. M

    I put in 500, went to the pokecenter and looked this up. I got nothing after that….

  7. F

    I didn’t get anything. I think there is an internal bond counter that increases when you throw something in. It just happens to increase by a whole lot. Pikachu had just gives me a present right when I got to Cerulean.

  8. G

    Pikachu gave me a single “lost pearl earing” after putting 50 in the fountain and beating Misty the prompt to play with pikachu showed up anf he gave me the gift.

  9. W

    I placed in 500 and got a silver leaf.

    Bad information. All it does is raise Pokemon’s happiness and when they’re happy they will give you items. Eventually they’ll give you something when they’re happy enough. People not getting items just haven’t gotten high enough happiness *yet*. The fountain has pretty much nothing to do with the heart scale, that’s just a random item as a result of the happiness boost.
