The metal coat in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet serves two purposes: it increases the speed of Steel-type moves in combat, and it is able to evolve Scyther. There are two ways to get the item, the easiest way is to simply buy it from Delibird Presents in Levincia. It’s fairly inexpensive, but players will want to have a few items to evolve properly. That’s everything players need to know about the Metal Coat in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
How to get the Metal Coat in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Home of the Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Electric Gym, players can find the Metal Coat item in Levincia. Delibird Presents has it, along with many other items, in their combat item catalog. It costs 3,000 LP or Poké Dollars and is unlimited. It can also be found in Porto Marinada in one of the auctions, but it will not always be sold there, making it very unreliable. These items can be manipulated, but there are a large number of items that can be picked up when visiting these auctions. This is a great item for any Steel-type Pokémon.
It increases the damage of steel-type attacks by 20% and can be used to transform Skeeter into Shizor. Unlike Pokémon Legends Arceus, where players could simply use an item on Pokémon, Scyther must have a Metal Coat and trade it in order for it to evolve. If players are having trouble getting paid for this, they can farm Tera Raids both online and offline for a chance at getting Stardust and other tradable items.
