In the new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you will come across many resources throughout Paldea. These resources can help your Pokemon in several ways like boosting their stats and teaching them new moves. Veteran trainers know the importance of Bottle Caps and how rare they are in these games. However, in these new titles, this resource is not limited to exploration and raids. That being said, in this article, we will tell you where to get Bottle Caps in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Where to Get Bottle Caps in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
To get Bottle Caps, you have to defeat four or five-star Tera Raids located throughout the lands of Paldea. But as we mentioned, there is another way to get your hands on this resource. The best way to get Bottle Caps in this game is to buy them at the Delibird Presents Shop. But first, you will have to unlock them. To do so, you have to beat six Gym Leaders and earn their Badges. Then, you can head over to any of the Delibird Presents Shop and buy them for 20,000 Poke Dollars or LP. If you are a new trainer, you might be wondering why should you spend such a huge amount of Pokemon money for measly Bottle Caps. But these Caps are important to raise your Pokemon’s IVs or Individual Values. You will find more about IVs and how to check them in this guide. But in simple terms, they are your Pokemon’s stats which can highly affect the outcome of battles. So it’s natural to want to increase them.
How to Use Bottle Caps
You can increase your Pokemon’s IVs through Hyper Training. And to do so, you will have to pay an NPC with Bottle Caps. You can find this NPC with his Abomasnow in Montenevera behind a Poke Center. Talk to this NPC and he will walk you through how you can use Hyper Training.
