1) INTRODUCTION
******************************************************************************
Pokemon Black and Pokemon White were released by Nintendo for Nintendo DS in 
North America on March 6, 2011.

This FAQ describes the Dowsing Machine, but is mostly a list of all the items 
available in Pokemon Black and Pokemon White that can be found using the 
Dowsing Machine.  The 146 items are listed by location, in the general order of 
a "typical" game walkthrough.

******************************************************************************
2) DOWSING MACHINE
******************************************************************************
The Dowsing Machine is a Key Item that can be used virtually anywhere within 
the game.  It allows the player to locate hidden items.  These items can be 
almost anything, from types of Poke Balls, to health items like Super Potions, 
to other useful items like Super Repel.

The Dowsing Machine will locate items that are "on-screen" (within the window 
of your game), plus a small distance "off-screen."  If you are scouring a 
location to look for items, you will need to move your player around in order 
to check an area completely.

You obtain the item by directly facing the hidden item and pressing the "A" 
button.  You can't get the item if you are standing on the exact spot where the 
hidden item is located.

You get the Dowsing Machine from Bianca.  She will speak to you shortly after 
you obtain your second badge in Nacrene City and give you the Dowsing Machine.

******************************************************************************
3) USING THE DOWSING MACHINE
******************************************************************************
It is not necessary to "do anything" when you have selected the Dowsing Machine 
and have it operating on your touch screen.

If there is no item to be found, the touch screen will display the "default" 
Dowsing Machine screen:  two diagonal black "bars."

If there is an item to be found, a tone will sound and the Dowsing Machine will 
automatically show a black arrow near the middle of the screen.  The arrow 
points in the direction of the hidden item.  Move your player in the direction 
indicated by the arrow.

When you stand directly on the spot of a hidden item, an "alarm" is sounded (a 
repeated beep).  Also, the black "bars" come together and a "target box" is 
repeatedly displayed at the center of the touch screen.  Move one step away, 
turn around, and obtain the item by pressing the "A" button.

******************************************************************************
4) HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS
******************************************************************************
You don't have to use the Dowsing Machine to obtain the hidden items.  As long 
as you know the exact location of an item, you can face the spot and press the 
"A" button to get the item.

Here are the locations of hidden items:
