{{incomplete|section|More information on how it is used in Gen I-IV; image of touch screen from HGSS/Gen V}}
====Generation I====
=====Manual activation=====
A form of the Itemfinder has been present in all core series {{pkmn|games}} since [[Generation I]].
 
====Generation I====
The Itemfinder can be used to find hidden items.

=====ManualIn activation====={{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, the Itemfinder is similar to that of Generation I. As with other Key Items starting in [[Generation II]], the Itemfinder can be [[Feature registration|registered to the Select Button]] and easily accessed.
In {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, the Itemfinder is similar to that of Generation I. As with other Key Items starting in [[Generation II]], the Itemfinder can be [[Feature registration|set to the Select Button]] and easily accessed.
 
====Generation III====
=====Manual activation=====
In {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, the Itemfinder can be used to find hidden items.
 
In {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, there are some items which require the Itemfinder to be used to obtain them, rather than simply being easier to find using it. These items cannotcan only be detected by the Itemfinder, exceptif the player whenis standing on top of them, at which point the item will be automatically obtained. In total, there are six items that can be found using this method:
* The [[Soothe Bell]] in the [[Pokémon Tower]] after having rescued [[Mr. Fuji]]
* The [[Leftovers]] on [[Route]]s {{rtn|12|Kanto}} and {{rtn|16|Kanto}} after having fought against each route's respective {{p|Snorlax}}
 
====Generation IV====
=====Manual activation=====
The Dowsing Machines in [[Generation IV]] are slightly different to those of previous generations; they make use of the [[Nintendo DS]]'s touch screen.
 
 
=====Pokéwalker=====
{{main|Pokéwalker#Dowsing Machine|Pokéwalker → Dowsing Machine}}
On the [[Pokéwalker]] there is an option to use the Dowsing Machine, which allows the player to obtain items. It costs 3 {{OBP|watt|currency}}s to play. In this mini game, the player gets two guesses. After getting the first guess wrong, the game gives a message regarding whether the item is adjacent to the selected spot or not.
 
====Generation V====
=====Toggleable passive effect=====
[[File:Gen V Dowsing Machine.png|thumb|250px|The Dowsing Machine when the player is standing over an item.]]
In {{4v|Black|White}}, it is once again known as the Dowsing MCHN. While it still appears on the touch screen when in use, it no longer takes any input from stylus touches and uses the screen for display purposes only. The bars and an arrow will face in the direction of a hidden item when the player is close. If the player is standing on a tile containing an item, the bars will cross and a square with four small arrows will appear.
 
====Generation VI====
=====Toggleable passive effect=====
In {{g|X and Y}} and {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, the Dowsing Machine works entirely differently from previous titles.
