How to get Bottle Caps in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Bottle Caps are incredibly useful items that can save players hours of tedious grinding. There’s a mechanic in Pokémon called Individual Values (IVs) that are unique to every Pokémon you catch. These IVs vary from 0-31, with a value being given to each of the six main stats. Finding a Pokémon with even one stat with a 31 IV is rare, but finding a Pokémon with all six at 31 IVs would be a near miracle.

However, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, players can use Bottle Caps to remove the randomness of this process. When a bottle cap is used on a Pokémon it maximizes one of their IVs in a chosen stat. There are also Golden Bottle Caps that maximize a Pokémon’s IVs in all six stats. You can use Bottle Caps by speaking to the NPC who wears sunglasses in Montenevera Town.

The easiest way to get Bottle Caps is by purchasing them from any Delibird Presents shop. Alongside other useful items such as evolution stones, this shop sells Bottle Caps for 20,000 Pokémon dollars each. To maximize all of a Pokemon’s IVs you need six regular Bottle Caps, which totals $120,000.

If you don’t want to spend that kind of cash, there is an alternative. Bottle Caps can also be earned in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet as a guaranteed reward from both 5* and 6* Tera Raids. Furthermore, 6* Tera Raids have a small chance of rewarding Golden Bottle Caps.

Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet can be purchased on the Nintendo Store.
