    Default Tipping

    So - for some reason the game has a mechanic where you tip various NPCs, I've noticed it most with the Photo Guy, who I always tip for fear he might stop showing up if I don't, and the occasional Café.

    Does anyone know if it actually impacts the game beyond being a way to spend the huge piles of money you can get on something other than hats?

    There's the poetry dude in the Parfum Palace as well. No idea if tipping does anything though.

    I think one of the leakers a while back said it had something to do with shinies? I can't remember clearly, don't quote me on it.

    Yeah, someone said shinies. Maybe that's how so many people have shinies? Maybe the rate increases a set amount based on what you pay, and increases chances in the grass around the area.

    I noticed we've seen shiny Espurr, Honedge, which are both outside of Parfum Palace where you can tip the minstrel. I tipped him 100, seeing if I run into one now...

    I don't think the shiny thing was anything more than speculation. Not that that means it's definitely false, but it's not confirmed either.

    Yeah, I haven't seen anything. Then again, I only tipped 100. People do seem to be getting a lot of shinies, but maybe the chances were increased.

    I tip everyone 1000 Pokedollars assuming I have the money. I have yet to find one shiny. Im not convinced it works or does anything at all.

    Most of the time I don't tip much, or at all.

    But that one guy in Coumarine who played Emotions from BW? I gave him the biggest tip. Got me right in the feels.

    I feel bad when I can't tip in real life, so I always tip the maximum amount whenever I can. 8U I'm not worried about shinies, my main team is already set.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Ditto. I'm still early enough that I don't often tip max, but I got so upset when I accidentally clicked "no" once that I went back and tipped them extra.

    Makes three of us. I'm just as much a sap in the gaming world as I am in real life. So yeah, I'm kind of a big tipper.

    Lol funny reading how you folks in the US tip the max amount. :) One of the big differences between British and American culture is the tipping.
    I mean it does occur here but it's not that common, whereas in the states you tip for everything don't you, it's like a national mindset!!!

    Don't tip in real life, not gonna tip in game either.

    When I tip (only do it sometimes), I usually only tip 100 because I'm cheap and like my money.
