  1. So there is no answer for this yet. Othen then they forgot to code it in. Trade evolutions are supposed to work when you trade!

  1. I don't believe Pokémon can evolve from Home's GTS trade feature. I think this was intentional, though, since so many Pokémon that evolve through trading require an item to do so. Shelmet and Karrablast do not, but it should be fairly easy to find a trade for those two by posting on the forums.

  2. I do not believe in paying more to trade. In gen 7 the GTS trade they would evolve as they are supposed to and was included. A lot of people will be disappointed if they dont fix GTS trade evolutions.

  3. They did this so you don't get tricked by trades similar to the one in Generation 4. (We all know it, don't say Gen 4 is perfect.) The GTS was always full of scam trades like that, so finding a legitimate trade was near impossible. So Game Freak made it that the GTS won't evolve Pokémon simply because it punishes anyone who tries to make a scam trade for things like that in Sword and Shield.
