1) INTRODUCTION
******************************************************************************
Pokemon Crystal was released by Nintendo for Game Boy Color in North America on 
July 29, 2001.

This FAQ describes the Itemfinder, but is mostly a list of all the items 
available in Pokemon Crystal that can be found using the Itemfinder.  The 82 
items are listed by location, in the general order of a "typical" game 
walkthrough.

******************************************************************************
2) ITEMFINDER
******************************************************************************
You get the Itemfinder in Ecruteak City.  Speak to the man in the house that is 
immediately east of Ecruteak City's Gym.

The Itemfinder is an in-game Key Item that can be used 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 Potions, to other 
useful items like Beserk Gene.

The Itemfinder will locate only items that are "on-screen" (within the window 
of your game).  If you are scouring a location to look for items, you will need 
to move your player around and use the Itemfinder often 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.

If there are no items to find, you will get a verbal response saying, "Nope!  
ITEMFINDER isn't responding."

If there is an item nearby, you will hear four pings and get this verbal 
responses:  "Yes!  ITEMFINDER indicates there's an item nearby."

Unfortunately, you don't get any hints about how close your player is to the 
hidden item, or in which direction your player must go to find the hidden item.
Start pressing the "A" button as you wander the general area.

******************************************************************************
3) HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS
******************************************************************************
You don't have to use the Itemfinder 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.
