The '''Vs. Seeker''' (Japanese: '''バトルサーチャー''' ''Battle Searcher'', named without a period in [[Generation III]] as "'''Vs Seeker"''') is a [[key item]] that appears in {{game3|FireRed and LeafGreen|Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen|s}}, {{game3|Diamond and Pearl|Diamond, Pearl,|s}} and {{v2|Platinum}}. It is used to re-battle Trainers that the player has battled previously.
==Locations and uses of the Vs. Seeker==
** Red's Vs. Seeker still appears on his Generation IV and [[Generation V]] sprite.
* The [[PokéNav]] and the Vs. Seeker resemble each other somewhat in appearance, and both serve the purpose of allowing players to rechallenge Trainers they previously battled.
* Using the VSVs. Seeker does not temporarily lower the volume of any current background music, such as [[Cynthia]]'s theme, when playing the [[Piano]] in the [[Villa]] of {{game|Platinum}}.
* In [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions|Diamond, Pearl,]] and Platinum, if the player uses the Vs. Seeker on a certain area of the cycling road part of {{rt|206|Sinnoh}}, it is possible to catch the attention of a {{tc|Hiker}} below the road. However, it is impossible to fight him without using the Vs. Seeker again, as there is a [[gate]] on the way.
* While not used, the Vs. Seeker bag sprite appears in the coding for Generation V games, along with all other items seen only in Generation III and IV.
