The Pokémon GO Vivillon debut is here! Along with Scatterbug and Spewpa. Trainers worldwide will now be able to collect the entire Evolutionary line!
The Pokémon, Vivillon, is famous for its many patterns. Trainers will be able to collect the different patterns from all over the world, by pinning Postcards.
You’ll be able to pin Postcards received from Trainers, PokéStops, and Gyms. This will unlock the Vivillion Collector Medal, as well as related Sub-Medals.
By pinning postcards from different regions, and progressing through the Vivillion Medals/Sub-Medals—you’ll have encounters with Scatterbug!
Depending on the region you pin a postcard from, it might lead to a Scatterbug that evolves into a differently-patterned Vivillon…
Here’s a list of all the Vivillon patterns:
- High Plains
- Icy Snow
There are currently 18 differently-patterned Vivillon in Pokémon GO. These patterns are affected by the climate of their natural habitat.
In the above map, you’ll be able to find out which patterned Vivillon belongs where. For example, if you want a River-patterned one—you can get it from a South Australian postcard.
If you’re still unsure, you can also check in-game for a Vivillon pattern map in the Pokédex and on the Vivillon Collector Medal page.
For an in-depth explanation of Vivillon, and how to encounter one—head over to the Official Pokémon GO website.
