In the anime, Pokémon that evolve by trade sometimes evolve after being temporarily in a different person's possession, like [[Misty's Politoed]] being with [[Nurse Joy]] at the [[Pokémon Center]] and [[Brock's Steelix]] when he lent Onix to his brother [[Forrest]].
 
This method of evolution will be featured in [[Pokémon GO]].

:''See also: [[:Category:Pokémon that evolve by trading with a held item]]''
Some Pokémon evolve when traded while holding a specific [[evolution-inducing held item]]. If a Pokémon evolves this way, the item disappears upon completion of the evolution. This method of evolution was introduced in [[Generation II]], which also has introduced holding items by Pokémon.

====Trading for a certain Pokémon====
Some Pokémon evolve when traded with a specific Pokémon. Only two Pokémon do this so far and evolve each other through this method. This method of evolution was introduced in [[Generation V]]. If either Pokémon holds an [[Everstone]], neither can evolve.
