Trading: Not until it's announced
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]].

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.
