Pokemon Go How to Get Vivillon, How it Works & How to Collect all Forms
Update: Trainers, Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon are now available in Pokemon Go and we have all the details.
Here is everything you should know:
We’re excited to announce that Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon are making their Pokémon GO debuts! Trainers worldwide will now be able to collect Scatterbug’s whole Evolutionary line!
Vivillon (Vi-vi-yon), the Scale Pokémon, is known for its many different patterns. Trainers can collect patterned Vivillon from all over the world by pinning Postcards received from Trainers, PokéStops, or Gyms in different regions. Pinning Postcards from eligible regions unlocks the Vivillon Collector medal and adds progress to sub-medals associated with the Postcard’s region of origin. Progressing on sub-medals leads to encounters with Scatterbug. Scatterbug from different regions evolve into Vivillon with different patterns! Will you be able to discover and catch Vivillon with every pattern?
Vivillon couldn’t have been discovered at a better time! During this season of giving, Trainers can reconnect with friends and family by sending them a thoughtful Gift through Pokémon GO —and then see how many patterns of Vivillon that Scatterbug can evolve into!

Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon make their Pokémon GO debuts! What pattern will your Vivillon have? Will you be able to find Vivillon from every region? Let’s GO!
Scatterbug from different regions will eventually evolve into Vivillon with different patterns. These patterns are affected by the climate of their habitat, and 18 patterns of Vivillon have been discovered in Pokémon GO so far. If you collect several Postcards from a certain part of the world, you may encounter a Scatterbug that will evolve into a Vivillon with a pattern from one of the following habitats.
- High Plains
- Icy Snow
Trainers can check the Vivillon Map from the Pokédex or the Vivillon Collector medal page to see where different Vivillon can be found.
To help Trainers keep track of their Vivillon pattern collection, we’re adding a new medal: the Vivillon Collector medal! When a Trainer pins a Postcard, they will unlock this new medal and see a short explanation of how to encounter Scatterbug.
Trainers will also be able to collect sub-medals within the Vivillon Collector medal by pinning Postcards. Trainers can pin both their own Postcards* and Postcards they receive from friends. These sub-medals are associated with the different Vivillon pattern regions. Collect different sub-medals to encounter Scatterbug from around the world!
*You can pin up to three of your own Postcards per day to make progress towards the medal.
The first sub-medal requires collecting three Postcards from a region associated with the Vivillon patterns. After completing a sub-medal, Trainers can continue to make progress toward that sub-medal to earn additional encounters with Scatterbug. The number of Postcards required to raise the sub-medal rank increases each rank.
Previous Story: Trainers, Vivillon is a dual-type Bug/Flying Gen 6 Pokemon with twenty different patterns. Vivillon’s patterns are changed by their habitats and climate. Now, the interesting part is that you won’t need to travel around the world to get a different pattern, but you must get and save postcards from the region you can catch that specific Vivillon form.
Vivillon has twenty different patterns, and as said above, these patterns are affected by the climate of their habitat. Now, many players would like to know how Vivillon will work when it arrives in Pokemon Go, and thanks to the world’s greatest dataminers, we now have some very interesting info to share.
So, Vivillon has twenty different patterns, and you will be able to get all the forms once it arrives. Sounds great, right? Here is how it will work and how you can collect all the patterns
So, to get Vivillon you must collect many Postcards from each region. If you pin multiple Postcards from a certain region, you’ll have a chance to encounter a specific Vivillon form. Vivillon’s patterns are changed by their habitats and climate. You can check the Vivillon map from the Pokédex and the Vivillon medal page to see where different Vivillon can be found.
The pattern on Vivillon’s wings is affected by the climate of their habitat. You can check the Vivillon map from the Pokédex and the Vivillon medal page to see where different Vivillon can be found.
If you save a received Postcard from a friend, the Postcard location’s Vivillon medal will progress. If you collect many Postcards from the location, you can encounter Pokémon from the habitat. When you pin a Postcard you receive from a friend, you’ll make progress on the Vivillon medal associated with that location. If you collect several Postcards from a certain part of the world, you can encounter a Scatterbug specifically from that habitat.
