The Ginkgo Guild (Japanese: イチョウ商会 Ichō Shōkai, literally Ginkgo Merchant Guild) are a guild of merchants based in the Hisui region. They sell their wares whilst traveling the region.
In the core series
The Ginkgo Guild operates from their cart outside the Galaxy Hall in Jubilife Village. Ginter sells a variety of rare items, while Tuli sells various berries and plants.
Mani, another Ginkgo Guild member, can be found in the basement of Galaxy Hall. He assigns Request 82, asking the player to find traces of his ancestors' lost village in Avalanche Slopes.
Volo is the only Ginkgo Guild member to have a major role within the story. However, rather than selling items in Jubilife Village, he travels across Hisui to learn about mythology. Cogita frequently chides him for neglecting his merchant duties to explore ruins. During the main story, when the player has no access to Choy's General Store in Jubilife Village, Volo offers Poké Balls and medicine at the Ancient Retreat or the Temple of Sinnoh instead.
