If you make onix hold metal coat and trade it to gold ruby or saphire it will evolve into steelix it is also the same case with scyther evolving into scizor

You trade them with a freind holding the required item (if needed) and they will evolve then you have to make sure your freind trades back.

What it means is that you have to trade with another silver,gold, or crystal version in order to get a steelix

You have to link up your game with another game via the Game Boy Link Cable, and trade that Pokemon to another game pak. Also, Victreebel doesn't evolve through trade, it evolves with a Leaf Stone. The only Pokemon that evolve through a trade are Onix, Kadabra, Scyther, Haunter, Machoke, Graveler, Poliwhirl, Slowpoke, Porygon, and Seadra.
