You can buy one, or find one for free in Montenevera
There’s so many held items to keep track of in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, it can get overwhelming. I mean, that’s on top of the often vague descriptions of what some of these pieces of equipment even do! Here’s two easy ways to get the Covert Cloak, and how it works.
Where to find a free Covert Cloak in Montenevera
If you’re far enough in the game where you have easy access to Montenevera (where Ryme is the gym leader), just fly on over there. Take a look in the direction of the town itself right as you get to the Pokecenter. See that little grove where the trees are, in the snow, behind the town? That’s where you’ll find a Covert Cloak.
It’s right there behind the snow.
Where to find the Covert Cloak at Delibird Presents for purchase
Just head to the Delibird Presents shop in Levincia (location in the gallery above), and buy one for 20,000 Pokedollars.
As for what the cloak itself does: “It’s an item to be held by a Pokemon. This hooded cloak conceals the holder, tricking the eyes of its enemies and protecting it from the additional effects of moves.” Translation? It guards against “additional effects” (like flinching). There’s a full list here you can peruse to see how the cloak stacks up against your opponents’ movesets.
