How to Get Dowsing Machine

The Dowsing Machine, or Item Finder, is a Poketch device (more similar to an App, in fact) that locates secret and valuable items in the game. It brings up a radar screen that will ping when it has discovered something nearby, and lead you toward whatever it’s found.

It will be given to you automatically as part of the main storyline of the game; specifically, after you have defeated Team Galactic at the second gym and received the bicycle. You will then want to head south through the Cycling Road on Route 206 and toward the upper part of Route 207. Here, the Professor’s Assistant will give you the Dowsing Machine.
