How to Level Up
You must have beaten the first story to evolve anyone that isnt the main character.

How to Level Up
Only the protagonist can be leveled up to Rank III in the main story.

The rest of the cast can obtain their secondary form in the post-game episodes. Characters require at least 50-80% linkage with their Best Link Pokémon to obtain their secondary rank. Characters with more specific unlocking methods are listed below:

Nobunaga - unlock his scenario and play it. Build 80%+ Link with Hydreigon during his story.
Ginchiyo and Muneshige - keep both characters separated in different castles. 60%+ Link with their respective Best Link Pokémon.
Motonari - collect over 100 Pokémon. 50%+ Link with Servine or Serperior.
Mitsuhide - unlock and finish his episode. 70%+ Link with Lapras or Articuno.
Nene - collect every Poison type Pokémon. 60%+ Link with Golbat or Crobat.
Shingen and Kenshin - unlock and finish both of their personal episodes. 75%+ Link with their respective Best Link Pokémon.
Masamune - unlock his scenario and play it. Build 60%+ Link with Rufflet or Braviary during his story.
Nouhime - collect every Ghost type Pokémon. 60%+ Link with Misdreavus or Mismagius.
Ieyasu - collect 50 characters in the Collection. 70%+ Link with Aggron or Registeel. Do not build link before assembling characters as it may null his chances of leveling up.
