The IoTeX testnet is a distinct network from the mainnet, though equivalent in terms of functionalities, including the existence of an "IOTX" token along with XRC20 tokens.
The best way for any developer to have acces to testnet IOTX is to create a developer account on the IoTeX Developer Portal and claim test tokens in their personal profile. Simply connect your wallet on IOTX testnet and start claiming test IOTX immediately.
Claim test IOTX from your Dev Portal profile
Another way to obtain test IOTX tokens for users that may need them for different purposes, other than developing, is to request them on the IoTeX web faucet:
