The Supportive Parent’s Guide to Pokémon: Where to Sell Bamboo Shoots in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Playing Pokémon on their devices can help kids develop a variety of skills. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet (SV), for instance, can help improve their reading comprehension, hand-eye coordination, and problem-solving skills. 

Surprisingly, it can also spark their penchant for trading.

Over the course of their playing experience, players can accumulate in-game item drops and rewards. Some items are instrumental in making their pocket monsters stronger during battles. Some are crucial for completing tasks. Other valuable items, such as tiny and big bamboo shoots, are intended for making in-game profits. 

This article explores the trading aspect of the first-ever open-world version of the Pokémon series. We’ll also clue you in on where to sell bamboo shoots in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. 

Be a cool parent. Watch your kids squeal in delight when you teach them where the best trading places happen in the game. 

Parents’ Primer: Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Before telling you where to sell bamboo shoots in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, we must explain the game first.

Released by The Pokémon Company in 2022, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are the first games that feature ninth-generation Pokémons. Deviating from traditional settings, Scarlet and Violet are set in an open world called the “Paldea region.” They feature three storylines and highlight 110 new Pokémons

Unlike other versions, the open-world scenario exposes players to more uniquely expansive experiences. It also incorporates co-op playing mode into the mix. Your kids can assemble a team of three to engage in challenges online or offline. 

It’s a fun and exciting avenue that allows your kids to expand their horizons. All without leaving the comfort and safety of their homes.

Treasures: What’s New in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

SV introduced a long list of treasures for players to collect and sell for Pokémon Dollars. Note that in-game accessories and essentials often come at high prices. To collect treasures, players must complete Tera Raid Battles or pick up items on the ground scattered around the map. 

Tera Raid Battles often reward players with valuables like big mushrooms, pearls, and stardust. Scouring places like the North Province allows your kids to pick up tiny and big bamboo shoots.

Tiny Bamboo Shoots

A tiny bamboo shoot is a small and rare bamboo shoot. It’s quite popular with a certain class of gourmands. These sparkling dropped items serve no practical purpose but are to be sold for 375 Pokémon Dollars.

Big Bamboo Shoots

These large and rare bamboo shoots are extremely popular with a certain class of gourmands. Because they are more valuable than tiny bamboo shoots, these items sell for much, much higher. In fact, a big bamboo shoot in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will sell for 1500 Pokémon Dollars.

These sections summed up what to do with bamboo shoots. Next stop: where to sell ‘em. 

Where to Sell Bamboo Shoots in Pokémon SV?

To sell treasures, your kid must head out to the Poké Mart located in Pokémon Centers scattered across Paldea. 

Once in there, your kid needs to interact with the person in the Blue Section. That person will give them three prompts:

  • “I’d like to buy.”
  • “I’d like to sell.”
  • “I’m good, thanks.”

To sell items, your kid must choose the “sell option.” This option allows your kid to sell their stuff in singles or bulk. They must select the items and the amount they want to sell and press the A-button to trade.

The game will display the Pokémon Dollar value your kid will get from their trade. They must click “yes” to confirm that the amount is acceptable. 

Voila! The deal is sealed. Your kid can use their currency to buy stuff for their character and Pokémons.
