Apps
 
In Diamond and Pearl, there are 25 available apps, four of which are included with the Pokétch. The rest are not available at the start but can be received at a later time, and a few must be obtained by showing a certain species of Pokémon to another character. Listed in each section below is the [[Pokémon games|in-game]] description of its app, followed by its in-game location and further information about it. In {{v2|Platinum}}, the apps are ordered in the same order as they are on the Pokétch in Diamond and Pearl.

===Memo Pad===
 
Obtained in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum from the president of The Pokétch Company after obtaining the {{Badge|Coal}}. It is a notepad for {{pkmn|Trainer}}s to use while out in the field to draw or write (e.g., to jot down notes on the area or on which [[Pokémon]] to get to beat the next Gym), however the memo is erased if the application is changed or the game is turned off.

===Pedometer===
 
Included in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum with the Pokétch. Useful for out-of-battle poison damage, egg hatching, [[Amity Square]] items fetching, battling with the [[Vs. Seeker]], and [[Great Marsh]] excursions. It is also instrumental in accessing the [[Surf glitch]]. When the counter reaches 99,999, it simply rolls back to 0.

===Pokémon List===
 
Included in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum with the Pokétch. Displays the icons of the Pokémon in the {{pkmn|Trainer}}'s current party. Also indicates their HP level and whether or not they are holding an [[item]]. Touching the screen resets and updates the display. Note that if a Pokémon is inflicted with a [[status ailment]], it has a different cry, and is shown as a gray silhouette.

=== Friendship Checker ===
 
Obtained in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum from a woman in [[Eterna City]]'s [[Pokémon Center]] once Team Galactic has been defeated in their [[Galactic Eterna Building|building]]. Displays the icons of Pokémon in the {{pkmn|Trainer}}'s [[party]] milling about. Touching and holding on a Pokémon will play its [[cry]] and display zero, one, or two hearts around it corresponding to its own [[happiness]]; the hearts may be either large or small. Double-tapping makes all the Pokémon displayed jump. If a Pokémon has 2 giant hearts, it is at maximum friendship. If the Pokémon is not friendly with the user, then it will move away from the point where the [[Nintendo DS]] screen is touched.

===Dowsing Machine===
 
Obtained in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum from {{ga|Dawn}}/{{ga|Lucas}} upon arriving at the {{rt|207|Sinnoh}} entrance to [[Mt. Coronet]] (Platinum), or near the [[Route 206]] junction (Diamond and Pearl). Similar to the [[Itemfinder]] and [[Itemfinder|Dowsing MCHN]], it displays a radar field divided into four quadrants corresponding to northwest, southwest, etc. Touching the field sends out a "ping", and if a hidden item is near where it was touched, a ping will repeatedly show or a dot will blink, indicating where it is relative to the user. The user must then position themselves to be beside the hidden spot (not directly on top of it), then face the item and press "A". When done properly, the player will find the item.

===Berry Searcher===
 
Obtained in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum from a girl in the [[Berry Master]]'s house in {{rt|208|Sinnoh}} after answering "yes" to her question. Displays a basic [[Sinnoh]] map similar to the [[#Marking Map|Marking Map]]'s showing where mature Berry trees are located in areas already visited. Touching the screen resets and updates the display.
 
[[File:PoketchPlatinum.png‎|thumb|right|175px|The Day Care Checker App on a boy's Pokétch in {{game|Platinum}}]]
 
===Day Care Checker===
 
Obtained in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum from a man in [[Solaceon Town]]'s Day Care. A result of a collaboration between the Day Care and The Pokétch Company, this app allows {{pkmn|Trainer}}s to see the [[level]]s, [[gender]]s, and species of the [[Pokémon]] (up to two) located in [[Solaceon Town]]'s Day Care, and will show whether or not an egg has yet been produced. This is unlike previous generations' games, where Trainers attempting to [[Pokémon breeding|breed]] two Pokémon would need to stay near a Day Care to make sure that they got an {{pkmn|egg}} as soon as it was ready.

===Marking Map===
 
Obtained in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum from the president of The Pokétch Company after obtaining three [[badge|Gym Badges]]. Not to be confused with the more in-depth [[Town Map]], it displays a basic [[Sinnoh]] map similar to the [[#Berry Searcher|Berry Searcher]]'s and allows players to drag and drop different markings (●, ▲, ■, ♥, ★ and ♦) on the map. It also displays the current locations of the two [[roaming Pokémon|Pokémon that travel around Sinnoh]], {{p|Cresselia}} and {{p|Mesprit}}.

Allows the user to simulate a [[type]]'s effectiveness in battle by choosing the type of the [[move|attack]] and the type(s) of the target [[Pokémon]], and displays whether the attack is super effective, regularly effective, not very effective, or ineffective against an opponent and a number of {{wp|exclamation mark}}s corresponding to the damage's multiplier - three being "regularly effective", and each additional or missing mark corresponding to a factor of two.
