A Pokémon Dollar (Japanese: ポケドル Pokédollar) is the name of the currency used in all known regions of the Pokémon world. Its symbol is PokémonDollar.png, a P with a double strikethrough, similar to the ¥ (yen) symbol except with a 'P' instead of a 'Y'.

The cost of simple items runs in the hundreds - indeed, most items have prices that are multiples of 100 or 1000, which is not entirely unlike the Japanese Yen.

Other names fans have come up for the monetary note over the years have been "Poké Dollars", "PokéMoney", "Zenny", "PokéYen" or "Pen". Most fans simply refer to them as "dollars". However, according to Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, the official name for them is Pokémon Dollars. For some odd reason, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon refers to the currency as "Poké", although this may well be another currency, as it is used by Pokémon, not by people.

However, the Pokémon Dollar and its symbol were both created for the English translation of the games. In the original Japanese versions (except for Colosseum and XD), the currency used is Yen and the symbol used is a Japanese Kanji for Yen. Similarly, Pokémon Dollars are not used or seen in the Pokémon anime, whether the original or the English dub.
