The '''Poké Radar''' (Japanese: '''ポケモントレーサー''' ''Pokémon Tracer'', '''ポケトレ''' ''Poké Trace'' for short) is a [[key item]] in [[Generation IV]] and [[Generation VI]] that is used to seek out [[wild Pokémon]] hiding in tall grass.
==In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum==
{{main|Pokéwalker#Poké Radar|Pokéwalker}}
On the [[Pokéwalker]] that is bundled with [[Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions]] there is a primitive version of the Poké Radar, which costs 10 Watts to use. In this Poké Radar, there are four patches of grass, one of which will display a '!' which indicates the presence of a wild Pokémon (or a '!!' or '!!!' depending on the Pokémon's rarity). As with chaining in the main series games, chaining is also possible in the Pokéwalker, but it is dependent on timing and the amount of steps taken. If the player waits a while after a '!' appears and click it, there is a chance that he/she may get another '!' patch, over-riding the previous one. If the player continues this trend he/she will get a '!!' patch , and then a '!!!' patch after that. The timing needed to wait seems to vary between the rarity of the Pokémon, with rarer Pokémon needing less time.
==In X and Y==
The Poké Radar makes a return in Pokémon X and Y, functioning much the same as in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. It is received by the player once he or she has defeated the Elite 4, by talking to the scientist on the second floor of Professor Sycamore's Lab.
