In the core series
*{{cat|Pokémon that evolve through trading|Being traded}}
 
Prior to [[Generation VIII]], the above were the only triggers to evolve Pokémon. However, {{g|Sword and Shield}} introduced twothree new triggers, each only used by a single Pokémon species:
*Striking a [[Victory Pose]] with the Pokémon in the party
*The Pokémon performing a specific action in battle
*TravellingTraveling through a specific location with the Pokémon in the party
 
When the appropriate trigger occurs, if the Pokémon meets the requirements to evolve, it will do so. However, if a Pokémon meets the trigger in battle, it will only evolve after the battle ends.
