The item that is found depends on the level of Pokémon. There are ten ranges for a Pokémon's level which determine the rarities, there are five different percentiles for item rarity, of the items that can be found. Generally the higher a Pokémon's level, the better the items it can find will be.

The items which can be found vary from Diamond/Pearl/Platinum to HeartGold/SoulSilver. The DPPt list is first followed by the HGSS list.
