In Legend? Go! Friends? Go!, a Poké Doll was seen in Ash's room, amongst his collection of Badges, trophies, and other awards.

Main article: Clefairy Doll (Base Set 70)

The Poké Doll was introduced as a Trainer card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Original Series (the Japanese Original Era) in the Base Set expansion. The English language release of the card uses the English equivalent of the Japanese name, Clefairy Doll.

Play Clefairy Doll as if it were a Basic Pokémon. While in play, Clefairy Doll counts as a Pokémon (instead of a Trainer card). Clefairy Doll has no attacks, can't retreat, and can't be Asleep, Confused, Paralyzed, or Poisoned. If Clefairy Doll is Knocked Out, it doesn't count as a Knocked Out Pokémon. The player may discard Clefairy Doll at any time during their turn before their attack.
