I'd like to know too, I've had MANY link-trade pokemon that I just can't get to evolve in this game, no matter what I do or how many things I kill. I'm talking 60-70% gurrdurrs, boldores, kadabras, haunters. How do I do?
It's actually pretty simple. The Pokemon you want to evolve has to beat a warrior, and that warrior has the be the first enemy defeated in the battle. --- http://i50.tinypic.com/23qx00.jpg "First time I got punched in the face, I was like "oh no", then I was like "this is a story"."
