Potch can be gained by fighting enemies, betting in a minigame, trading and selling an item. The maximum Potch capacity that the player can acquire in Suikoden, Suikoden II and Suikoden III is 999,999 Potch. After the player reaches 999,999, the player can't gain any more money. Even if the player bets in a minigame, trades or sells an item, the potch counter of the game will still be 999,999 Potch. While other games in the series, the maximum potch capacity can reach millions.
