An escape item is an item that can be used to distract a wild Pokémon, allowing the player to escape instantly regardless of any factors that would otherwise prevent escape. The items all resemble Pokémon native to the region the items are available in: a Clefairy, a Skitty's tail, and a Minccino's tail.

The Poké Doll in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond

The Poké Doll, simply known as "Plush" in-game, makes an appearance in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond as a gift item found inside crates. It can be given to Pokémon to make them happier, or can be used to distract certain Pokémon from running away. Instead of Clefairy, these Dolls represent Cleffa, but were also translated to English as Poké Doll (Japanese: ピィにんぎょう Py Doll).
