Methods of evolution

2 bytes removed, 12 January
For some reason, I believed that "Victory Pose" was an official term, but upon further investigation, I can find no evidence for that
Prior to [[Generation VIII]], the above were the only triggers to evolve Pokémon. However, {{g|Sword and Shield}} introduced three new triggers, each only used by a single Pokémon species:
*StrikingSpinning aand [[Victorystriking a Pose]]pose with the Pokémon in the party
*The Pokémon performing a specific action in battle
*Traveling through a specific location with the Pokémon in the party
* {{rf|Galarian}} {{p|Farfetch'd}} evolves into {{p|Sirfetch'd}} after it lands three [[critical hit]]s in a single battle.
* {{rf|Galarian}} {{p|Yamask}} evolves into {{p|Runerigus}} when the player travels through the stone gate in the [[Dusty Bowl]] after it has lost 49 {{stat|HP}} or more from a single attack and did not [[fainting|faint]] in the same battle or since.
* {{p|Milcery}} evolves into {{p|Alcremie}} when the player performsspins aand [[Victorystrikes a Pose]]pose while Milcery holds a [[Sweet]]. Unless Milcery is {{Shiny}}, Alcremie's color depends on the [[time]] of day, the length of the spin, and the direction of the spin; if Milcery is {{Shiny}}, Alcremie takes on its sole Shiny coloration. Alcremie's Sweet corresponds to the Sweet Milcery held.
** Vanilla Cream: Spin clockwise quickly in the day
** Ruby Cream: Spin anti-clockwise quickly in the day
