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, 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).
The Poké Doll is featured in the Pokémon Trading Card Game as a Trainer card. The English language release of the card uses the English equivalent of the Japanese name, Clefairy Doll. The following is a list of cards named Clefairy Doll.

In Generation III, the Poké Doll, which resembles a Clefairy, a Pokémon native to Kanto and Johto, is unavailable in Hoenn until Generation VI. It is instead replaced by the Fluffy Tail, which resembles the tail of a Skitty, which is native to Hoenn. The Fluffy Tail is likewise only available in Hoenn, and is again replaced by the Poké Doll in Generation IV.
Similarly, both are replaced in the Unova region by the Poké Toy, which resembles the tail of a Minccino, a Pokémon native to Unova. Furthermore, the Japanese name of this item does not mention the Pokémon's name, as opposed to the previous two escape items. However, as before, the previous two items are still available in Unova, but not as easily obtainable (they are much more expensive and only obtainable in Black City, which is exclusive to Pokémon Black).
