Poké (Japanese: ポケ Poké) is a type of currency used in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon world.

Poké is obtained by finding it on the ground in Mystery Dungeons or selling items to Kecleon Shops. Just like in the main series games, Poké can also be collected by using Pay Day.

Poké may be spent on various food items, TMs, and other goods in Kecleon Shops. Poké can also be spent at the Gulpin Link Shop, Wigglytuff Club, Croagunk's Swap Shop, Xatu Appraisal, and Secret BazaarS.

If the player or, prior to being able to change team leader, the partner, gets defeated inside a dungeon, the team will lose all of its current moneyRBTD or half of its current moneyS. However, money kept at the Felicity BankRB or Duskull BankTDS will not be lost. However, in Gates to Infinity, the penalty of losing all/half of the Poké upon fainting has been revoked.

In Gates to Infinity, Poké is referred to as its icon, or simply money. It has a downloadable dungeon named Poké Forest named after it, which has Poké in most rooms.

When the player passes over Poké, it is immediately added to the player's money on hand. It cannot be placed in the Treasure Bag unless the player runs over it (it will not be picked up), then swaps it for another item in the bag.

Coin Maximums

Whenever a Poké is picked up whilst exploring a dungeon, they are bound by a special condition known as a coin maximum. The coin maximum is essentially the limit that the Poké cannot go over. For example, if a dungeon's coin maximum is 500, that means no Poké will go over or to this limit. The value of a Poké will always be randomly assigned and will never exceed the coin maximum.

Coin Watcher IQ Skill

However, there is a way to have Poké go beyond the coin maximum, and that is to have a Pokémon who has the IQ Skill, Coin Watcher, as Team Leader. This happens because, according to the description of the aforementioned skill, the inheritor of the skill has a keener eye for money and thus gains more Poké than usual upon picking it up.
