As with many Pokémon games, there is a shop in the game. This allows you to spend the in-game currency, PokéDiamonds, on various extras, Balloons for travelling or actually purchasing PokéDiamonds from the Nintendo eShop using actual mony.

Balloon Shop

The main part of the shop you'll access is the Balloon Shop. In the game, you use these Hot Air Balloons to access the various areas in the game. You cannot get to a new area without a specific balloon so you'll need to spend your hard earned PokéDiamonds to get the balloons to access the area.

Gifts Shop

The next part of the shop allows for you to receive gifts that you have earned through various challenges with the king. These range from outfits to full buildings to put forth in the courtyard such as the Mega Stone Set

PokéDiamond Shop

As the game is free to download and play, the game provides several payment options to help you speed up the game. The game will allow you to purchase various PokéDiamonds with money on your Nintendo eShop account. If you buy the larger packs, you will get more value for your money. However, you cannot buy a total of more than 3,000 Poké Diamonds. Once you do, the shop is locked out and you can buy the VIP cards to reduce payments for balloons
