Pay Day (Japanese: ネコにこばん Coin for a Cat, lit. Neko ni Koban) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

The Japanese name of Pay Day is a Japanese proverb akin to Pearls Before Swine.

Generation III

Same as above, except scatters coins equal to five times the Pokémon's level each time. The Amulet Coin doubles the number of coins picked up.
