    Default Money money money

    So what about the different currencies around the Pokéverse? Have we gotten direct names on any of them besides MD's "Poké" and Orre's "PokéDollars"?

    I know in the Japanese games they're Yen, but really that's too direct. It needs something with at least a skewed name if they insist on a real-world reference, like everything else in there.

    Honestly, does it matter if the currency doesn't have an offical name? It'll only be a case of "Call a Rabbit A Smeerp". Only with money.

    Anyway, the currency througout the different games seems to be the same. Except for the coins used in the Game Corners and the BPs used in the battle tower/frontier and the Pokécoupons used in PBR and Mt.Battle in the Colosseum/XD games.

    I believe that Orre, Kanto, Sinnoh, Johto and Hoenn all use the same currency, and thus, are PokeDollars.

    don't like something? fix it. stop complaining about it.

    I think they all use the same currency. I just call 'em "dollars" or "bucks" like I would in real life.

    I usually just call the money in pokemon world (in the RPGs)"yen".
    Since everyone these days has one of these, I'm going to put mine too...



    On a funny note, I made this personality test on 3 different ocasions and the pokemon I got every single time was Togetic so this can't be very wrong...

    I think all the regions have the same currency.

    And yes, Poke is the currency name (at least to me).

    Kinda, I need it for a fic.


    And given that Orre is apparently a different part of the world than the other regions, would it really have the same currency?

    Why would the whole world use the same money though?

    Well if it uses the P symbol then it might be, but I guess it doesn't, so chances are it's a different currency.

    In pokemon mystery dungeon they don't use the symbol either I think. In fact "poké" could be an abreviation of the longer name of the currency.

    Personally I just call them Poké anyways.

    Well all the items we've seen so far in the games cost the same in every region. If their currency is worth the same as each others all the time, it'd be almost pointless not to.

    They're all called regions so its possible they're all from the same country.

    I like to call it Pen.
    Because it's symbol is like the yen symbol except with a P instead of a Y.

    P.S. All the regions so far seem to be all a part of Japan (even Orre but where in Japan that is is still unknown).

    I think Orre is in the same country as the others. in can trade, has the same pokemon. I wouldnt be surprised if they created a new country with none of the pokemon we know in it. It's like 600 in this country. 500 in that country, but completely different ones. Orre is in the same region. The money is pokedollars in all (except for MD but that's understandable) places. Just in Orre they have the world pokedollars, but in the portable games, they have the symbol, probably due to less space to write the word in the small text boxes.
    SparkyRotom will eventually come to this world and.............
    play on the computer!!!!!!!
    Surprisingly, my favorite Pokemon is Celebi so my other alias is CRYSTALCELEBI
    I currently have 2 pearls and 2 diamond games. one of my diamonds is japanese so i could get more of a challenge. Im getting japanese platinum and english platinum soon.
    I am from england, so i have to by pokemon games of the web otherwise i will have to wait a long time.
    I'm sorry for any trouble I have caused.
