How to Get a Metal Coat in Pokemon GO

There isn't any special trick to getting a Metal Coat in Pokemon GO. The most consistent way to get one is to build up a streak by visiting Pokestops everyday or by doing field research tasks.

If you're lucky you might receive one on the seventh day, but you might also just end up with a Sun Stone, or Upgrade or some other evolutionary item you don't need. You can get them without having to rely on luck from special research tasks but that relies entirely on whether or not one is available with a Metal Coat for a reward.
