How to get Metal Coat in Pokemon Go

You can find Metal Coat in Pokemon Go at any PokeStop, as you would find eggs. Urban areas are your best bet for Metal Coat. Also remember that every seventh day your PokeStop Daily Bonus streak should cough up one of five Special Items: either a King’s Rock, Metal Coat, Upgrade, Dragon Scale or Sunstone.

Once you have your Metal Coat and 50 Candy you’ll be able to evolve Scyther into Scizor. Just evolve using the in-game menu as you would any other Pokemon.

Remember that once you’ve used the Metal Coat you won’t get it back, so make sure you’re certain of this evolution.


How to evolve Onix into Steelix
