How to get Special Items in Pokemon GO: Some Guidance

In the latest Pokemon Go update, Porygon2 has become available.

The Metal Coat item gives you access to new Steel-type evolutions for two classic Generation 1 Pokemon. But the major question here is how rare are these items and what are their drop rates and where can you find them? What are the drop rates of these items and more importantly, where can they be found. In the Pokemon Anime, the Sun Stone was first seen when Ash won a Sun Stone in the Bug-Catching Contest, and will be used to evolve his Sunkern later on. 10 sweets for a stage 2 evolution. In addition to the evolution items, "Pokemon Go" players can also find new types of berries to help them in catching the Pokemon.

The bad news is that some users have gone out and spun 100-200 Pokestops only finding one Special Item.

In Pokemon GO, Metal Coat can be used to evolve Scyther and Onix, as well.

Dragon Scale: This item comes in handy when evolving Seadra into Kingdra. It is the crown-shaped relic used to evolve Poliwhirl into Politoed instead of Poliwrath.

Included in the first collection of Special Items are Dragon Scale, King's Rock, Metal Coat, Sun Stone, and Up-Grade.

Up-Grade: This can be used to transform Porygon into Porygon 2. Among these items are two new Berries to use when in the act of catching Pokemon.

The former slows the Pokemon down to make it easier to catch, while the latter doubles the candy handed over upon being caught. The items can be picked up like any other by spinning Pokestops, and you'll still need a certain amount of candy (along with the items) to evolve these Pokemon.

Over on reddit, some users report going to multiple PokeStops without obtaining a single Evolution item. But the drop rate for the evolution items appears to be pretty low when compared to the drop rate for the new berries. According to Heavy, one unique characteristic of these items is that they can only be utilized once. Another Redditor, CosmicPrankster said that he received 10 new berries but no evolution items even though he visited 50 Pokestops.

Interestingly, a lot of Pokemon GO trainers are reporting they are getting Evolution Items on their 7th day bonus spin, but no official studies and stats have been done to prove the correlation. Moreover, a few level-up rewards also comprise Pinap and Nanab berries.
