To get the Metal Coat Pokemon GO evolution item in 2022, you’ll need to spin a lot of Photo Discs. This is the only way to get one, as far as we know. Feel free to correct us in the comments if this is not the case. The main problem is that the drop rates of all morph items are around 1%, which is pretty brutal. If you’re really unlucky, you could end up spinning hundreds of records before you finally get your hands on the thing. So whenever you manage to get the Metal Coat, make sure to save it and only use it when you are one hundred percent sure you have a good evolution candidate. This clearly leads us to our next point.
Now that we know how to get the Metal Coat in Pokemon GO in 2022, what do you actually use it for? Well, this particular evolution item is needed to turn Onix into Steelix and Scyther into Scizor. So make sure you only spend a Metal Coat when you have a Scyther or Onix which will be worth the investment. Before we wrap up, we have to mention that spinning the same Photo Disc for seven days in a row will get you a lot more items on the seventh day. This might slightly increase your chances of catching a Metal Coat. If you like PvP, you can play Go Battle League to win mystery items in the hope that one of them will be a cloak.

Here is a video that might help you.
How can you get a Metal Coat in Pokémon Go?
Like other consumables in the game, you can get a Metal Coat by spinning PokéStops. Due to the low drop rate of the item, around 1%, it can take around 500 turns before you find your first layer of metal on an unlucky day. The main reason behind the high turn count is that Metal Coat shares a similar drop rate with other upgradable items. You’ll need to get lucky twice: once to get an upgradeable item from a PokéStop and once to get a Metal Cloak.
You can use the Daily Bonus system to increase the number of items you can get from a PokéStop, which increases your chances of getting a Metal Cloak, even by a small margin. If you visit a PokéStop for seven consecutive days, you will receive more items each day and the bonus will reach its maximum potential after seven days.
Method: PokéStops Photo Discs
Another way to get a Metal Coat is by spinning Photo Discs at PokéStops and Gyms. It is extremely rare for a metallic layer to fall off after spinning the drive (less than one percent). However, if you spin at least one PokéStop every day for seven consecutive days, you receive bonus items, one of which is guaranteed to be an evolution item. You have a one in seven chance that the evolution item will be a metal lining.
The last way to get a Metal Coat is by giving gifts. Each friend you have in Pokémon Go can send you one gift per day. The more friends you have in the game, the more gifts you can receive, and the more likely one of them will contain a Metal Coat. This is the least likely way to find a Metal Coat, but it is possible!
