===Generation II===
In {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, the Itemfinder is similar to that of Generation I. As with other key items in [[Generation II]] (and following), the Itemfinder can be set to the Select button and easily accessed. It is given out by a man in [[Ecruteak City]].
===Generation III===

In {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, the Itemfinder is obtained on {{rt|110|Hoenn}} after defeating [[Professor Birch]]'s child, {{ga|May}} or {{ga|Brendan}}, in a battle.
In {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, the Itemfinder can be found in the same place as in Generation I; it is given out by one of [[Professor Oak]]'s aides in the [[gate]] on {{rt|11|Kanto}} if the {{player}} has 30 or more Pokémon caught in their [[Pokédex]]. Unlike in other games, 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 cannot be detected by the Itemfinder, except when 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:
===Generation VI===
In {{g|X and Y}} and {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, the Dowsing Machine works entirely differently from previous titles.

In ''[[EP181|A Ghost of a Chance]]'', [[James]] buys an item called a "Treasure Detector", which is a pair of dowsing rods that are based on the in-game item Itemfinder. He attempted to find some treasures at the [[Burned Tower]].
In ''[[EP182|From Ghost to Ghost]]'', the Treasure Detector got Team Rocket trapped by a group of {{p|Gastly}}.
In ''[[DP148|Try for the Family Stone!]]'', James used his Treasure Detector again to find a {{evostone|Dusk Stone}}.
