In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, it is a [[Key Item]] again and is known as the Dowsing MCHN. It also uses the touch screen to locate items with each grid tile representing a tile on the overworld. Unlike {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, the Dowsing Machine is a circular grid and can be operated while moving. There are four lines around the central grid that will move around when the touched area moves in relation to the hidden item and will light up when an item is near. When touching the grid under normal circumstances, the radius of dots and lines will be dark red and will let out a slow series of lower-frequency beeping. If the player moves near a hidden item while touching the grid, the dots and lines will gradually light up from red to white until the player touches the grid tile representing the tile containing the item, in which a blinking dot will appear; the beeping will also speed up and become higher in frequency in relation to the closeness of the area the player is touching.
