As most of us know, the currency in the Pokémon series is typically a P symbol with two strikethrough lines.

My question to you guys is: what do you call this currency? I've seen many terms used by fans - coins, PokéDollars/dollars, just 'P', money, Poké (as it's referred to in the Mystery Dungeon spinoff), yen, and more. Do you use any of these terms, or have your own? Or do you not really think about how it's said at all?

I always thought it was Poké(mon)Dollar ?
Don't really remember why or where I've seen it though...

I did read that page, and from my knowledge that's not the official term used in main series games or the anime - it's more of a fan one that's easier to remember. In the main series games it's often just called 'prize money.' Someone do correct me if I'm wrong, though!

I just use dollars since it comes more naturally for someone from the US where the currency is also called dollar, ahah. Or money. :D

I call it Poke because that's what Mystery Dungeon calls it, so it just stuck.

Poke Dollar was what it was called in the anime, wasn't it? I think that's where I got it from.

i could've sworn that one game had "poké" as an abbreviation for them, so i've been calling them that ever since.
