There is hardly a person on this planet that hasn't heard of, been influenced by or came to understand these magical creatures. Yes, we have been enthralled by this rather simple-looking GameBoy(TM) role playing game and have continued marvelling at its popularity and magic since it first hit the stores with Pokémon Red/Blue over half a decade ago. Pokémon Yellow then followed the success of the first two and finally, Pokémon Gold/Silver and lastly, Crystal entertained people globally. Today, yet another masterpiece has come into our gaming lives: Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire. This bright new pair of gems seems to have even further pulled us into the magic world of Pokémon. Overshadowed by the many superpowered monsters, there has been a little hardly-known item which has followed the series throughout its reign. This overshadowed key item is one with the unique name of "Itemfinder." Yes, many people have come to meet with it but were ignorant of its unique and entertaining feature: that of being able to help with the finding of hidden items, many of them, in the complete wild, and sometimes in the populated lands of Hoenn, which makes up the main land in Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire. This little item comes into use whenever you choose it from the "Key" items in your backpack which can be accessed by selecting it from the inventory which comes up whence you press down "Start." Of course, you can go treasure hunting in such a way, without the aid of the Itemfinder, but then you have no idea where to start looking. Use the Itemfinder in a particular area which looks suspicious of having such a hidden obeject in its midst. If there is an item, in a square radius around your character, the Itemfinder will beep a couple of times with a heart-warming tone indicating there is a hidden item. ITEMFINDER indicates there's a hidden item! Such is the magic of finding these free goodies. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ FAQS ++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Here is the section where the most frequently-asked-questions get answered. >Where is the damned Itemfinder. I can't find it anywhere! < ~Unlike previous Pokémon versions, in this one you don't get it from inside a building or from a city-dweller. Instead, your rival hands it to you when you reach Route 110 and battle him/her. She/He will give it to you as a reward.~ > How do I use the Itemfinder? < ~Press "Start", select "Pack" and shift to the key items (where the bycicles and rods usually also remain.) Unless you haven't obtained the item yet, select it and press "A" to trigger it. If there's an item in the area around you, it will start beeping and this message will show up after a few seconds: ________________________________________ |Oh! | |The machine's responding! | |There's an item buried around here! | ---------------------------------------- If not, then keep on looking in another area!~ > I keep getting no responses...! < ~That occurs whenever you use it and there is no hidden item around. It will say the following: ________________________________________ |... ... ... ... Nope! | |There's no response. | ---------------------------------------- This indicates that you ought to move off to search elsewhere.~ > Yes, it's beeping! Where is the item now!? < ~The Itemfinder only indicates that there is an item nearby, not lead you to it. So, you should examine every spot in a close radius, from every angle by continuously pressing "A" to uncover the treasure. Something good which was introduced in Ruby/Sapphire is the character's ability to face the spot after the Itemfinder has positively beeped. Also, if you're right on the spot hiding it, your character will rotate.~ > Can I sell the Itemfinder? < ~Trying to seel such an item if foolish and for this very reason the game designers have cancelled that very ability.~ > Are there any really valuable items available? < ~Yes, besides all the Potions, Pokeballs etc, there are holdable items that have certain effect.~ > Is there a limit to findable items? < ~Yes, there is which means that once you pick up one, it won't be replaced. If you do manage to collect them all, you can as well try using any of the Pokémon with the characteristic to grab hold of random items such as Zigzagoon, etc, etc.~ > Can you give clues to where there are likely to be items? < ~Of course. When you start searching, look for queer and irregular surroundings which can possibly lead to nothing more than treasure Here are some such instances: *Look for patches of grass with an empty spot or square in them. Such as: (X is a spot of grass, etc) XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXX The empty spot is very likely to reveal an item if you stand on any of the surrounding spots of grass, face the empty one, and press "A." **Whenever you come across a large, flar area without any or much details (such as a rock or tree) around in it, draw out your Itemfinder and it will certainly start signalling. ***In areas, usually surrounded by trees, that have little protrusions or depressions There's a good chance you'll discover something. Example: OOOOOOOOOOOOOXXXXXXXXX (O is open land. X are trees or OOOOOOOOxXXXXXXXXXXXXX rocks. x and o are likely places.) OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoX OOOOOOOOOOOOOOXXXXXXXX ****Like the above, any other tunnels with no visible purpose, are usually the resting place of hidden valuables. *****A solitary tree or rock is likely to have something hiding in it. Rocks which can be broken with Rock Smash or moved with Strength are out of the question. Example: XOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOX (Xes are walls or trees. Os are XOOOOOOOOOOOOxOOOOOXXXXXX for empty land. x is for a XXOOOOOOOOOOOOOOXXXXXXX solitary rock, bush or tree) XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX ******A spot which needs an HM move to be accessed, such as an island, but has no other obvious purpose is highly likely to reward you. ******Underwater, (when Dive is used) look out for spots surrounded by seaweeds or slightly darkened ones on the seafloor. Quite obvious, I must say. So, next time you come across a spot (such as a beach) which looks suspicious, draw out the Itemfinder and confirm. One more reminder: don't bother searching in areas with many trainers or in buildings or homes.~ > In your walkthrough, some hidden items are named ???... < ~Well, yes. This is temporary and will be fixed once the US version comes out. Due to my lack of knowledge in the Japanese language I am unable to translate the names of all the items. Of course, that doesn't stop me from testing out what some of the do in battle, but I don't really have that amount of free time and, as I said, the names will be coming out soon.~ > Why don't you fill in the details of the walthrough? < ~That's because this is an In-Depth guide and is only concerned with the topic of itself. If you need comprehensive walkthroughs and other guides, choose any of the others on GameFAQs.~ > Why can't I disperse this FAQ without your written consent?< ~That's beacause I have taken much time and pains to compose this piece of fine writing. :D Now, if you wish to display this on your site, disperse it electronically etc etc, you must ask me first because if you don't, then you're plagiarising which is a very, very bad sin. Also, if you do get my consent, make sure you include all copyrights and legal info.~ Any more questions? Nothing!? Good... +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ ITEMFINDER WALKTHROUGH ++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ ++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ==Littleroot Town== This is where you begin. Explore, talk to people and exit to Route 1001 to the North where you'll get your first Pokémon. Items: none Route 101 After collecting your first Pokémon head back into this route and level up. Follow the winding path to the next city. Items: none ==Oldale Town== Heal if you have to. Explore and collect any items which the citizens may give you. Items: none Route 103 This route is to the North of Kotoki Town and is currently optional, as it connects with another area further on in the game. Also, hear you meet your rival. Items: none Route 102 After moving the obstruction to the West of Kotoki Town, proceed into this forested area. Items: none ==Petalburg City== This is the first city with a Gym which you come to after all the battles at route 102. Items: 1)Rare Candy on the little patch of land below the large pool of water to the south-west of the city. (You need HM-03 Surf) Route 104 Exit the city since there's not much there which you should currently do and onto the beach which is ridden with hidden goodies. Items: 1)Antidote on the beach. Place your character in above the red-dressed girl (so that you're on the spot to her North) and take one step North. From this spot above the girl, go all the way West to the space just before touching the shore. The waves will be nearby. 2)Heart Scale again on the beach. Place your character on the spot so that you face the fisherboy with the straw hat's back. Now, walk South three steps and pick it up. 3)Potion. Go to the northernmost part of the beach to where the steps are. From the steps, walk over the sandy surface West till you find it. Route 104 (Forested Area) This continues to be route 104 but you have just entered the wooded area. There are many trainers hera and also many pick-ups. Some require you to return after attaining HM-01. Items: 1)Potion. As you enter the forest, take the right (East) path. Reach a small grassy area and in the middle of it there'll be an open space. There it is. 2)Pokéball. To the other side of the forest there is a bug catcher with a straw at. He is standing next to the West wall of trees. Keep walking below him until you reach the spot which is surrounded by grass. (Note that this is after the battle with Team Aqua/Magma.) 3)Tinymushroom just after the bushes in the North-East part of the forest. Trample through the grass and head north into the short unwooded patch. (You need HM-01 Cut) 4)Tinymushroom yet again. Just after pick-up #3, follow the path between the trees which leads South-East. Continue until you find yet another patch of grass with a small, empty square in a corner between the trees and the grass. (You need HM-01 Cut) Route 104 (Lake Area) Continue after the forest and explore. Battle the trainers and enter Rustboro city. Items: 1)Pokéball in the green patch of grass behind the Pretty Petal Flower Shop. It's in the first empty spot (as you come from the building) so search there. 2)Super Potion in another empty spot in the patch of grass above the Pretty Petal Flower Shop. Just keep checking in each of the empty patches because if I try to explain it, you'd most likely get confused. ==Rustboro City== This is possibly the largest city in the game. However, there's no Itemfinding to be done here. Obtain your first badge. Items: none Route 115 This is the short, dead-end route to the North of the city. Remember that the unaccessible area even more to the North will later be accessible and is still route 115. Items: none Route 116 North-West from Rustboro. Enter the cave to free a stolen Pokemon. Items: 1)Super Potion in the higher area overlooking the grassy one below. Keep looking in the South corner till you find it. (You need HM-01 Cut) Route 105 Go back to Rustboro City, cross route 104 yet again until you reach the small wharf just above the beach. Enter the building and discover the stolen Pokémon with its rightful master. He'll take you aboard his ship as a reward and take you on a small journey. Items: 1)Heart Scale on the smallest of a group of three islands on the West side of this route. (Need HM03- Surf) Route 106 This is yet the continuation of route 105. Continue the journey upon the boat till you reach Dewford Island. Items: ==Dewford Town== The boat will dock here. There's also a cave with good Pokémon to the West and this is the place for your second badge. Items: 1)Heart Scale to the North of the gym. Go to the red-clother trainer standing next to the water. Stand on the spot below him and from that position move East two steps. (Note: if the trainer challenged you and moved to a different position, you'll have to reset his regular position by entering and then exitting a house or building.) 2)Stardust. Head even further West, just before you reach the mouth of the cave. Go to the solitary rock just North of the red trainer there. (Note: if the trainer challenged you and moved to a different position, you'll have to reset his regular position by entering and then exitting a house or building.) 3)Pokéball at the very end of the long patch of sand just above the rocky hill to the West of the previous pick-up. Route 106 (Cave Area, Below the Seafloor) The whole complicated cave system is (well, nearly) is found below the sea. Items: 1)Everstone. Enter the cave. Past the trainer and climb the ladder. Continue further into the cave until you see a muddy slide on one of the underground cavern's North walls. Take out your bike, ride over it. Avoid the ladder going down but instead continue cycling across the broken floors. Cycle quick, but carefully over a long stretch off such floors soon after to reach a secretive ladder. Climb that ladder to emerge in a room with a Rare Candy in it. The greyish rock in one of the corners will reveal another item, but hidden. (Need Mach Bicycle) 2)Everstone. Follow the cave after the mud slide described above. Climb the ladder at the end to emerge into a new cavern. Cross it to an area with breakable rocks. Past them, there's a balcony with a grey rock standing like a tomb-stone. There it is! Route 107 Go back to the docked boat and ask the fellow to take you East, not North (from where you came.) He'll yet again ride you over the sea. Items: none Route 108 Yet again. this a route across th sea on the boat. Nothing to do than stay and watch. Items: none Route 109 The last part of the voyage over the sea with the boat. When you do manage to get hold of HM03- Surf head back into the water . Items: 1)Heart Scale. It is on the little island with the man and woman, standing arm to arm (that also fight a double-battle). Position yourself on the spot below the man and face West, without moving an inch. Press "A" to uncover it.(You need HM03- Surf) Items: none Route 109 (Slateport Beach) Fight all the weak trainers and gain Exp. Find all the hidden goodies and then proceed to the main city. Items: 1)Heart Scale. Go to the very Eastern part of the beach where there's an elderly man with a Zigzagoon. Stand on the spot above the man and wlak one step due North. Then, turn around without moving an inch and pick it up. 2)Ether. Go south from the spot described above, past an inflatable mattress, past a second one. The hidden item is to be found two steps to the right of the third inflatable. 3)Revive. It is very near to where the boat docked. Stand in the spot below the blue-hatted sailor. From there walk two steps to the South and from there, four to the West. Without taking a new step, turn to face South and pick the item up. 4)Heart Scale. Walk North from the spot where you landed. There will be two green umbrellas and one red above them. Stand below the green umbrella on the left to uncover it. 5)Great Ball. Even more North from the spot in section 3, just below the house. Next to the water, there's a blue inflatable bed. Stand on it and in its center there'll be the item. ==Slateport City== This is a large city where many, many things can be done. Here you can also get your third badge. Do check out the market and the stuff on sale. Items: none Route 110 Catch Pokémon, battle the trainers and level up. Items: none (beginning area so far) Route 103 This is an optional area to the West of route 110. If you haven't noticed so far, this is a point of connection over a lake from Kotoki Town. Items: none Route 110 (Continued) Battle all the trainers and level up. Some interesting new Pokémon as well. Items: 1)Full Heal. Arrive at the first sign (or billboard) just after crossing below the cycling path and also above the trainer. Above the sign, walk through the grass North to the spot where a patch of grass is missing. Look there. (Two steps above the sign) 2)Great Ball in the spot without grass just below the second sign. 3)Revive. From below that second sign, walk to the West eight steps and press "A" to uncover the item. 4)Pokeball in the spot without grass North of the trainer with the purple hair. ==Mauville City== This is the city with the electric gym. Explore as there are also many things you can do here. Items: none Route 117 Level up here and collect cash. Items: 1)Repel. When you reach the two flower gardens opposite each other, be prepared to use your Itemfinder. Enter the lower garden and find the secret passage out and into the bushes. Go to the very right. Keep walking and stop onto the spot just before walking on the last possible one. Route 118 A few trainers which need battling. This is to the West of Mauville and you'll be visiting it later in the game again. Items: 1) Heart Scale in the brown boulder one step to the West if the trainer dressed in red. ==Verdanturf Town== The cave to the North leads to the meeting point of where you previously stumbled across some rocks. Here you also get your Contest Pass which lets you comepte in all the contests, including this one! After everything is done, head back to Mauville and take the route to the North. Items: none Route 116 (Rusturf Tunnel) This is the little cave above Verdanturf. It is where you freed the Wingull earlier. Now, there still are rocks blocking the way to the other side but you can still go through another opening to emerge in a mountain clearing to the South. Items: 1)Blackglasses in a spot two steps away from the man looking for glasses. Stand to his West and walk those steps. Press "A" and dig them out. After all, it'll turn out that those glasses aren't his, making him go look elsewhere. Route 111 This route is to the North of Mauville. Fight the trainers. Items: none Route 112 (Fiery Path) This area can also be accessed further into the game. Now, this is the route you should take as the desert in inaccessible. It joins up with the correct route which also comes out of the desert. Before entering the cave, notice the lift station, blocked by Team Aqua/Magma members. If you need fire type Pokémon, here's the place to look for good ones. Items: none Route 111 (Continued) This route continues above the desert and there are some trainers which you can fight. Here, you'll find a fellow who'll give you TM43- Secret Power which allows you to create hideouts and secret bases out of battle. Items: none Route 113 Continue levelling up and battling. Enter the snow-capped mountainous areas. Weirdly, that snow covering is not ice, but volcano ash...
