Trade evolutions are basically a gimmick to get more people to interact with each other and complete the Pokedex, which is the main reason that encourages trading to start with. I did manage to do a few trade evolutions but it's hard for me since my brother never lets me hoard his DS.

Some of the trade evolutions are really complex, like the ones that need a held item or even worse, trading Karrablast and Shelmet with each other. It took me ages to evolve them and then get both of them on my game as well. They're okay, but the Karrablast/Shelmet trade is one of the most weird evolution methods ever.
