​PKMBuy - Where is the Metal Coat in Pokemon BDSP?

The Metal Coat is one of several evolution items players can get in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (BDSP), and we can tell you where to find it.

The Metal Coat isn't particularly hard to find, but players can only use it during normal gameplay. The good news is that players really only need one to get the most out of this item. Unlike Razor Fang and Razor Claw, players can acquire Metal Claw early in the game.

Where can I find Metal Coat in Pokemon BDSP?

Players will be given a Metal Coat after Iron Isle meets gym manager Byron.

Iron Island can be reached by taking the Canalave City ferry on the west side of the river. Talk to the sailor outside to be taken to the island. Once there, the first building the player encounters to the right of the landing site is Byron. After talking to him, he will hand over a Metal Coat item.

Get Scizor and Steelix in Pokemon BDSP with Metal Coat

Metal Coat has two uses in Pokemon BDSP. Chief among them is using it to evolve Scyther into Scizor or Onix into Steelix.

Players can trigger evolutions for both Pokemon by equipping Metal Coat as a hold item to Scyther or Onix. From there, trade the Pokemon to another player. The other player will automatically evolve the Pokemon. Note that it is best to arrange this type of trade with a trusted player, as there is no guarantee that a random player you find online will trade the evolved Pokemon back to you. To make matters worse, there is only one Metal Coat available in the Pokemon BDSP save, which makes it very inconvenient to lose it.

Another use for the Metal Coat is as a general combat item. Metal Coat is the steel equivalent of Charcoal or Miracle Seed. It increases the Strength of any Pokemon's steel-like moves by 20%.
