Pokémon dolls in the anime

A Pokémon doll is a sort of decoration used in the Pokémon games.


Generation I

In the first Generation games, decorations were not featured. Despite this, Pokémon dolls could be found decorating the Copycat's room in Saffron City. When talked to, the doll would turn to the player and this message would appear: "This is a rare Pokémon! Huh? It's only a doll!"

Generation II

In the second Generation games, dolls became available as a decoration for the bedroom. In these games, sometimes the player character's mother will buy dolls for his or her room with saved up money, but the most common way to receive them is with Mystery Gift.

One feature of Pokémon Stadium 2 allows players to view their entire room and its decorations, including any dolls, in 3-D.

Generation III

In the third Generation games, dolls can be used to decorate a Secret Base, and can be either bought in various locations, such as at the marketplace in Slateport City, at the Lilycove Department Store, with coins at the Mauville Game Corner or with Battle Points at the Battle Frontier. Lanette will also give one in exchange for keeping her messy house a secret. A girl in Sootopolis City will also give the player one. All dolls must be placed on a desk, a mat, or a certain kind of ornament. Large dolls can only be placed on large desks and large mats.

Dolls are not available in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, particularly because there are no Secret Bases in FireRed and LeafGreen. However, Lorelei's house contains a number of dolls, since she collects them.

Regi dolls

The three Legendary titans also have dolls. Players with a Japanese copy of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire can obtain these dolls by scanning a promotional e-Reader card, Decoration Present, or through participating official Nintendo events. It is possible to obtain them in the non-Japanese versions with the following method:

  • Scan the appropriate Decoration set card for the Japanese Ruby/Sapphire, which gives a Regi Doll to the Decoration Trader at Mauville City's Pokémon Center.
  • Exchange records with Japanese Emerald.
  • Exchange records between Japanese Emerald and non-Japanese Emerald.
  • Exchange records between the non-Japanese Emerald and non-Japanese R/S of the same language.

Generation IV

Dolls, like many other decorations in this generation, are available by trading spheres to Hikers in the Underground. They are used to decorate the player's Secret Base in the underground. They can also be purchased in the fourth floor of the Veilstone Department Store.

Instead of placing them on desks or mats, dolls, like many other decorations, cannot be placed on top of any other objects.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, the player is able to receive Figures which are placed outside the Team Base. They are obtained as rewards when certain conditions are met. The Lucario Figure is obtained upon attaining Lucario Rank; the Bonsly Figure is obtained by completing all of the Makuhita Dojo mazes; the Mime Jr. and Weavile Figures are obtained as rewards for random missions, shown as either "Mime Jr. Fig" or "Weavile Fig". All of the statues were depictions of Generation IV Pokémon that had not yet made an appearance in the core series games at the time of Generation III.
