Restaurant Le Wow

There are a few restaurants in Lumiose City but the 3-star Restaurant Le Wow provides a great way of making money quick in Pokémon X and Y. Similar to the other restaurants in Lumiose City, you will have to battle and dine. There are a total of 5 battles you will have to participate in Restaurant Le Wow, which is the key to getting rich quick. You will also be able to get tons of experience in the process of farming.

Entry Requirements

One of the pre-requisites to access Restaurant Le Wow is to hold the title of Pokémon Champion by defeating the Elite Four. There is also a cost of $100,000, payable when you make your order in the restaurant. If you have maxed Style, there will be a 10% discount, bringing the cost down to $90,000 instead. Also, bring along a duo of your best Pokémon for the battles ahead.

If you do not meet the requirements, you may wish to head to Restaurant Le Yeah or Restaurant Le Nah, which gives lesser money but still decent enough.

How to Get There

The best way to get to Lumiose City is by flying if you have a Pokémon that has the move. Restaurant Le Wow is located in Hibernal Avenue and easily identified by its black outlook and 3-stars. If you are confused by the layout of Lumiose City, you can take a cab there.

Going the Extra Mile

Before battling, you may wish to increase the text speed and/or turn off battle animations to speed things up. You can utilise the O-Powers, Prize Money (1.5x to 3x payout) or Exp. Point Power (1.2x to 2x EXP) depending on if you want more experience or money. Items such as the Luck Incense and Amulet Coin (2 x payout) also work great here to increase your prize money up to 3 or 4 times more.


The effects of Luck Incense and Amulet Coin do not stack. They only stack with Prize Money Power.

Double Battle Meal

Inform the waitress in Le Wow that you would like the Double Battle meal as it is comparatively faster compared to the other meals. Double Battle simply means a 2-on-2 battle between two trainers. After placing the order, it will be the time to use your O-Power and your Amulet Coin or Luck Incense, if any, to increase your prize money after the battles.

Be prepared to fight 5 battles consecutively and you will not get to change your Pokémon lineup. So, do remember do choose your duo of Pokémon wisely. The good news is, your Pokémon will be healed to full health after each battle.

The Battles

Remember the battles are fought consecutively and the enemy Pokémon are all at level 63. So bring a duo of sufficiently powerful Pokémon to defeat them in a designated number of turns for the maximum reward (detailed in next section).

Battle #1 Vs. Owner Christophe

Ferrothorn (Grass/Steel Pokémon)
Druddigon (Dragon Pokémon)

Battle #2 Vs. Owner Christophe

Amoonguss (Grass/Poison Pokémon)
Alomomola (Water Pokémon)

Battle #3 Vs. Garçon Morris

Milotic (Water Pokémon)
Wobbuffet (Psychic Pokémon)

Battle 4 vs. Garçon Morris

Lucario (Fighting/Steel Pokémon)
Floatzel (Level 63 Water Pokémon)

Battle 5 vs. Waitress Paula

Aurorus (Rock/Ice Pokémon)
Exploud (Normal Pokémon)

Rewards and Prize Money

If you manage to win each battle in the required number of turns, you will get the perfect reward of 25 Balm Mushrooms. The number of mushrooms decreases as the number of turns you take increases. Each Balm Mushroom can be sold at the Pokémon Center for $6,250 each, totaling a hefty sum of $156,250! Including the prize money you receive after each battle, it amounts to a pretty hefty sum with 15 minutes of work. You can refer to the table below for the turns required and prize money per battle.

With the Prize Money Power, first granted in Cyllage City, the increase in winnings become even more significant. For example, prize money of $20,160 with Amulet Coin will triple to $60,480 if a level 3 Prize Money Power is in effect!

Do you think Pokemon X and Y has poor replayability compared to previous titles?
