  • Magnemite has a chance to be holding the item when encountered in the Grand Underground.
  • After receiving the Riolu egg and the National Pokédex, speak to Byron in Riley's house.
  • Can be purchased in the Battle Tower.

When Scyther or Onix holds a Metal Coat and is traded, they will evolve into Scizor and Steelix. Scyther is exclusive to Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, so those playing Pokémon Shining Pearl will have to trade for a Scyther.

Both Scizor and Steelix are excellent steel-type Pokémon and would be valuable to any team. They are also required to complete Pokédex, so completionists will want to get their hands on a Metal Coat or two.
