Pokémon GO: adding trade Evolution info - this should be put in a table, but I'm feeling super lazy rn
During a trade, there is a small chance that both traded Pokémon will become '''Lucky Pokémon'''. Lucky Pokémon guaranteed at least 12{{tt|*|10 prior to September 5, 2018}} {{IV}}s in each stat and require half the amount of Stardust to [[Power Up]]. A Lucky Pokémon is indicated by a shimmery effect in the [[Pokémon Storage System|Pokémon Box]] and the Pokémon's profile. Like with Shiny Pokémon, the Pokédex will record the number of Lucky Pokémon the player has obtained for that species.
 
The probability of obtaining a Lucky Pokémon depends on how long the Trainer has had that Pokémon in storage at the time of trade, and it is based on the older of the two Pokémon traded. The following is the observed probability of traded Pokémon becoming Lucky: <ref>[https://thesilphroad.com/science/chance-of-lucky-trade/ THEThe SECRETSSecrets OFof TRADEDTraded POKÉMONPokémon: LUCKYLucky RATESRates - The Silph Road]</ref>
 
* 5% for Pokémon obtained less than 1 year ago
 
Since April 2019, players who are Best Friends have a chance of becoming Lucky Friends, which guarantees the next trade to result in Lucky Pokémon. This can possibly be triggered by performing a task that may increase Friendship level, such as opening a [[Gift]] or trading a Pokémon, on the first interaction of the day. After completing a trade with a Lucky Friend, the players will return to Best Friend status.
 
====Trade Evolution====
From January 11, 2020 onward, certain [[:Category:Pokémon that evolve through trading|Pokémon that evolve through trading]] in the core series would cost no [[Candy]] to evolve if it was traded.<ref>[https://pokemongolive.com/en/post/trade-evolution/ Trade Evolution and more Pokémon originally discovered in Unova are here!]</ref>
 
The following lists the Pokémon eligible for trade Evolution, along with their Candy costs to evolve otherwise: <!--This should be in a table with associated Candy cost to evolve otherwise-->
