Reason: Prices for maniac items in XY.

A valuable item is an item which generally serves no practical purpose other than to be sold, 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 Goldenrod Tunnel. In Pokémon Black, some of these items are sold in Black City, albeit for prices much higher than they can be sold for. Often, these items later become exchangeable items. In Generation V, mulches and flutes became valuable items due to losing their function. While most of these items can be sold at Poké Marts, those introduced in Generation V can only be sold to certain item maniacs. Besides Big Nuggets, Pearl Strings and Comet Shards, the player can also sell normal Nuggets, Pearls and Big Pearls, Stardust and Star Pieces to the maniac inside the Icirrus Pokémon Center, for double the price presented below.

Bargain Shop

In the Goldenrod Tunnel on Monday mornings in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, a man sells a set of valuable items for a discount. However, each one can only be purchased once per week. The man can still sell each item on other mornings, provided the player saves in front of him and does not walk away to remove him from the screen. The prices are approximately 10% cheaper than the normal sell prices.

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 change.
  • The first time that humans eating Pokémon is mentioned explicitly in the games is when a Team Rocket member mentions the SlowpokeTail's value as a delicacy. In Pokémon X and Y, Slowpoke Tail is one of the dishes served by Restaurant Le Yeah in Lumiose City.
  • The Japanese name for nugget, きんのたま kin no tama, literally means "golden ball", which is also a colloquial term for testicles. The man offering his "golden ball" is a frequent joke amongst Japanese fans. As this pun would be lost in translation, as well as would not go over well with parent groups, it was translated as "nugget of wisdom".
  • The Rare Bone and Thick Club share the same Bag sprite.
