{{incomplete|section|More information on how it is used in Gen I-IV}}
A form of the Itemfinder has been present in all core series {{pkmn|games}} since [[Generation I]].
=====Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum=====
In {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, the [[Pokétch]]'s {{DL|Pokétch|Dowsing Machine}} app replaces the functions of the Dowsing MachineItemfinder. The layout of the Dowsing Machine app is that of a {{wp|Cartesian coordinate system|Cartesian plane}} with the player at the center. The app functions similar to a radar. When the touch screen is pressed, a circle will radiate from the point where the stylus hits and give out a "ping". When an item is nearby, a dilating radar circle will repeatedly appear. If the hidden item is within the radius of the circle, a dot will continuously blink while the radar circle repeatedly appears from the touched area. The app will reset its display upon the player performing any action.
