Evolution (進化 Shinka; Dub: Digivolution) is the process by which Digimon grow and develop. In the course of evolution, a Digimon typically experiences an increase in their Evolution Stage, transforming into a stronger Digimon species. All Digimon naturally undergo permanent evolution at a relatively slow scale by way of slow intake of data. However, in partnership with a human Chosen Child or Tamer, evolution can typically be artificially triggered by way of the human's emotions or energy, or through the use of one of numerous types of evolution item, in combination with a Digivice or similar device to temporarily evolve the partner Digimon to a higher level.
