{{Item
*'''Japanese:''' きんのたま ''Gold Orb''
+
|name=Nugget
This is the original valuable item, introduced in [[Generation I]]. It can be sold for {{PDollar}}5000, making it the most valuable of all valuable items: and rightly so, as the Nugget is made of pure gold. It can be found in fields, caves and buildings, and may sometimes be given to the player as a reward for completing a quest or as a gift (for example, the Nugget Bridge in [[Cerulean City]]). They can also be found held by some wild {{p|Grimer}} and {{p|Muk}}, and can be found by a [[Pokémon]] with the {{a|Pickup}} [[ability]]. In [[Generation II]], Nuggets could be received for 3 points by participating in Buena's Password Show at night.

{{Item
*'''Japanese:''' しんじゅ ''Pearl'', おおきなしんじゅ ''Big Pearl''
+
|name=Pearl
These items, introduced in [[Generation II]], can be sold for {{PDollar}}700 and {{PDollar}}3750, respectively. While not as common as the Nugget is, they can be found in the [[underwater]] routes in [[Hoenn]], where they can be found on wild {{p|Clamperl}}, in addition to on wild {{p|Shellder}} and {{p|Cloyster}} in [[Kanto]]. These Pokémon are all based on {{wp|clam}}s, which produce pearls in real life. Additionally, some wild {{p|Gulpin}} and {{p|Swalot}} can also hold them. Because it is bigger and more valuable, the Big Pearl is harder to find.

+
{{Item
*'''Japanese:''' ほしのすな ''Star Sand'', ほしのかけら ''Star Piece''
+
|name=Big Pearl
Also introduced in Generation II, these items can be sold for {{PDollar}}1000 and {{PDollar}}4900, respectively. Other than being rarely found lying around on a route or cave, they can be found attached to certain {{p|Staryu}} and {{p|Starmie}}, due to their being based on sea stars. It was found in the coding that the Star Piece can also be held by wild {{p|Jirachi}} in {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}, although there are no actual wild Jirachi in the games. The Star Piece can additionally be found in the [[Sinnoh]] [[The Underground|Underground]]. Due to the Star Piece being a real piece of gem (and not only dust, unlike the Stardust), it can be sold for more money, and is generally harder to find. In {{game|Platinum}}, Star Pieces may be traded to [[Mr. Fuego]] in the [[Fuego Ironworks]] for one of each of the colored [[shard]]s, for use at the new [[move tutor]]s. In addition, Stardust can be found in {{p|Giratina}}'s Room in [[Turnback Cave]], after defeating or capturing Giratina, when the {{player}} takes between 16 and 30 rooms to get there. Finally, both Stardust and Star Pieces can be found using the [[Pokéwalker]][[Pokéwalker#Dowsing_MCHN|Dowsing Machine]] minigame on the [[Night Sky's Edge]] path.

{{Item
*'''Japanese:''' ちいさなキノコ ''Tiny Mushroom'', おおきなキノコ ''Big Mushroom''
+
|name=Stardust
These items were also introduced in Generation II, and can be sold for {{PDollar}}250 and {{PDollar}}2500, respectively. They can sometimes be found lying around, particularly in caves and forests, and can also be held by wild {{p|Paras}} and {{p|Parasect}}. These items are very valuable to certain maniacal fan segments, according to the games. These items actually serve a purpose as an [[exchangeable item]] in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, as they can be given to the [[Move relearner]] (two TinyMushrooms or one Big Mushroom) to teach a Pokémon a move it is capable of learning through level-up, even if the Pokémon is of a higher level than when a certain move is learned. However, they don't serve any other purpose on any of the other games they appear in, so they are included in this list.

===[[File:Bag_SlowpokeTail_Sprite.png]] SlowpokeTail===
+
{{Item
*'''Japanese:''' おいしいシッポ ''Delicious Tail''
+
|name=Star Piece
Introduced in Generation II. Offered by [[Team Rocket]] on [[Route 32]] for {{PDollar}}1,000,000, the player must refuse (as that is one more [[Pokémon Dollar]] than can be carried) and save all the {{p|Slowpoke}} Team Rocket has kidnapped. The item later appears in a shop Team Rocket is running in [[Mahogany Town]] for the much more affordable price of {{PDollar}}9800, but it can only be bought before meeting [[Lance]] at the [[Lake of Rage]], at which point the shop won't sell anything until Team Rocket is defeated in [[Goldenrod City]]. The item is never seen again after meeting Lance.

The SlowpokeTail is actually a useless item with no function past its monetary value. Although it is said that a Slowpoke will use its tail for fishing, a SlowpokeTail has no effect on fishing at all, nor does it have any effect on {{p|Shellder}} despite the fact that contact with a Slowpoke's tail usually induces a spiral evolution.

One key point of interest is when first introduced, the Team Rocket member mentions the SlowpokeTail's value as a delicacy, being the first time that it is ever mentioned of the use of any Pokémon as an actual food (for human consumption), a rather controversial subject of what kind of creature is the contributor of meat (of any kind) in the Pokémon world. This is also the first time that Pokémon cruelty is mentioned explicitly.

A valuable item is an item which generally serves no practical purpose, but can be sold at Poké Marts, usually for a high price. In Generation II and IV, it is possible to buy some of these items for a discount (but only one of each per day) on Mondays in the morning in the Underground Path of Goldenrod City.

List of valuable items

Bargain Shop

In the Goldenrod Underground on Monday mornings in the Generation II games, as well as in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, a man sells a set of valuable items for a discount. However, each one can only be purchased once per week.

As one may notice, the prices shown are around 10% cheaper than the normal sell prices. This is effective in helping players make a profit, albeit a rather small one.

Trivia

  • The SlowpokeTail is actually a useless item with no function past its monetary value. Although it is said that a Slowpoke will use its tail for fishing, a SlowpokeTail has no effect on fishing at all, nor does it have any effect on Shellder despite the fact that contact with a Slowpoke's tail usually induces a spiral evolution.
  • When the SlowpokeTail was first introduced, the Team Rocket member mentions its value as a delicacy, being the first time that it is ever mentioned of the use of any Pokémon as an actual food (for human consumption), a rather controversial subject of what kind of creature is the contributor of meat (of any kind) in the Pokémon world.
    • This is also the first time that Pokémon cruelty is mentioned explicitly.
