Pokemon GO: How To Get Metal Coat

Test your metal.

Pokemon GO's evolution can be as simple as using the required amount of candy, but often rarer evolutions will require an evolution item.

These are consumables that can allow you to not only fill out your Pokedex but also unlock some impressively powerful creatures.

One such item, the Metal Coat, can evolve Onix into Steelix and Scyther into Scizor, so it's worth grabbing one.

Here's how to do just that.

Pokemon GO: How To Get Metal Coat

There are a few ways to get a Metal Coat, but none are guaranteed.

That means you'll want to complete as many of these tasks as possible - especially since you can only use it once.

Field Research

Arguably the easiest method of earning a Metal Coat, you'll want to spin Pokestops wherever possible.

Each offers a 1% chance of an evolution item, including a Metal Coat.

You'll up your chances by spinning Pokestops for seven days in a row, too!

Go Battle League Reward

Speaking of PvP, try competing in the Go Battle League for a chance to earn a Metal Coat as a mystery item.
