The Poké Doll (Japanese: ピッピにんぎょう Pippi Doll, alternatively ピッピの にんぎょう Doll of Pippi) is an item introduced in Generation I. It is also named Clefairy Poké Doll in the game dialogue and Clefairy Doll in the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

Prior to the introduction of the Poké Doll item sprite in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the fact that the Poké Doll is a Clefairy doll was not yet revealed in the English dialogue of the core series games.
In Japanese games from Generation I onwards, the item name (meaning "Clefairy Doll") is mentioned by several characters, but this was usually translated in English as simply "Poké Doll" with no mention of Clefairy. In Generation I games and their Generation III remakes, there is also a Lass on Route 8 saying that Clefairy looks like a stuffed toy (ぬいぐるみ) in the Japanese version, but this remark is absent from the English version.
In Generation II games and their Generation IV remakes, the Lost Item is Copycat's Poké Doll, specifically a Clefairy doll. This is made clear in the Japanese description of Lost Item using the term ピッピにんぎょうGSC or ピッピの にんぎょうHGSS. In the English dialogue, Copycat calls it a "Clefairy Poké Doll" (Japanese: ピッピにんぎょう)GSCHGSS.
In Generation IV, the Lost Item appears as a Clefairy doll sprite ( ). From Generation V to VII, the Lost Item was changed into a Mime Jr. doll sprite ( ) and the description also calls it a Mime Jr. doll (Japanese: マネネの 人形), even though the Lost Item does not legitimately appear in those games.
The Clefairy Doll card shares the same Japanese name as the Poké Doll item, except written in kanji: ピッピ人形 (Pippi Doll).
While the Poké Doll's Japanese name is ピッピにんぎょう (Pippi Doll), the Pokémon doll (decoration item) known as the Clefairy Doll has different Japanese names: ピッピのぬいぐるみ (Stuffed Pippi)GSC and ピッピドール (Pippi Doll)RSEDPPtORAS.

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).

- 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.
- The Lost Item that must be returned to the Copycat in exchange for the Magnet Train Pass in Generations II and IV is implied to be the same Poké Doll given to her to obtain TM31 (Mimic) in Generations I and III.
- Due to a glitch in the Generation I games, Poké Dolls can also be used to bypass the ghost Marowak in Pokémon Tower; this glitch was fixed in Generation III.
- In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, when pluralized or prefixed with the indefinite article, this item's name is rendered with an unaccented 'e' ("Poke Dolls" and "a Poke Doll", respectively). In Pokémon Platinum and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, both of these instances are corrected to display with an acute accent, matching how the item's name would normally be rendered.
