There are two ways to obtain the Punching Glove. You can either buy it from the Mesagoza Delibird Presents for ₽15,000 or receive it free by completing a challenge in Zapapico. However, the Punching Glove will only appear in the shop after you have collected four Gym Badges.

To gain the Punching Glove for free, travel to the Zapapico southern Pokémon Center and speak to the Pokémon Rep standing in front. He offers a challenge, stating that if you defeat seven Trainers in East Province (Area 3), he will grant you a prize. Once you complete the challenge, you can return to the Pokémon Rep and claim your reward, receiving the Punching Glove for free.
