Unique triggers: Correcting Rainbow Swirl method
===Using an item===
Some Pokémon evolve when they are exposed to a specific item. The player can use one of these items on a compatible Pokémon at any time outside of battle, which consumes the item. Unlike other evolution methods, evolution by exposure to an item cannot be prevented by holding an [[Everstone]]. Due to being able to evolve at any time, these Pokémon usually used to learn fewer or no moves by level up after evolving; beforehowever, in [[Generation VIII, even if they do not learn any additional moves by level-up, they normally can still be taught any move their pre-evolved form could learn by level up by the [[Move Reminder]].
