They have the same exact effect. Either way, you're better off going with the Steelixite.
The asker didn't specify that it was ORAS though...

They both offer the same benefits (20% increase in steel type attacks) so it doesn't really matter which one you use. I have my steelix hold it's mega-stone anyway, it looks really cool and has one of the best def stats in the game :)

I think the metal coat because if you trade an arceus from your older games (if you have any) you can make it a steel type using the iron plate.
