What are Play Coins and how do I get them? - Play Coins are the virtual currency of Ninten Pedia. It should not be confused with Play Coins from the Nintendo 3DS.

Once you earn enough Play Coins, you can exchange them for eShop credit or 3DS/WiiU/Switch game download codes.

Ways that you can earn Play Coins at Ninten Pedia :

- Making quality posts in the discussion forums ("quality" as in putting thought into your post / not short posts).
- Participating in contests/tournaments and raffles in the Nookling Junction.
- Selling/auctioning 3DS/WiiU/Switch in-game content (e.g Pokemon, Animal Crossing items, etc) in the Nookling Junction.
- Battling in Pokemon X/Y/ORAS/SM, Smash Bros. 3DS/WiiU, Splatoon, racing in Mario Kart 7/8 for Play Coins, etc (eg. wager battles for Play Coins).
- Selling services (such as EV training or IV breeding services in Pokemon X/Y/ORAS/SM, graphic designing services, etc).
- Completing gaming tasks that are posted every once in a while (make sure the task has not ended / is not locked).
