Not to be confused with Poké, the form of currency used in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series.

Pokémon Dollars, generically known as money, are the main form of currency used in the Pokémon franchise. They first appeared in Pokémon Red and Blue Versions, and allow the player character to buy items at Poké Marts, such as Poké Balls or Potions. A Pokémon Dollar symbol is an uppercase "P" with two lines, which is essentially identical in appearance to the Russian ruble symbol (₽), although the symbol also bears similarity to the Japanese yen (¥) or the euro (€).

Pokémon Dollars are mainly earned by winning a Pokémon Battle, which has a rule in which the losing Pokémon Trainer must give Pokémon Dollars to the victor. If all of the player character's Pokémon have fainted in battle, they lose half of their Pokémon Dollars to their opponent. In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions, the amount of Pokémon Dollars lost increases depending on the overall strength of the player's Pokémon party.
