Pokemon Go Scatterbug Candy Bug, How to Get Unlimited Scatterbug Candy

Trainers, a new bug has been discovered in Pokemon Go, and players love it. That’s because it allows you to get tons of Scatterbug Candy, which is much needed to evolve them all.

Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillion made their Pokemon Go debut  in December 2022. These Pokemon can’t be encountered in the wild as a regular spawn, and you must pin and collect Postcards from Gifts. That said, you must collect Scatterbug to evolve into Vivillon.

To view your progress in collecting Scatterbug to evolve into Vivillon:

  • Press the Player icon in the bottom left corner.
  • Scroll down through the “Me” menu until you find the Medals section.
  • Select the Butterfly icon to open your Vivillon Collector Medal.
    – If you have not redeemed this Medal yet, it will be at the bottom of the Medals section.
  • Navigate to the sub-medals section beneath the World Map.
  • If you have a Scatterbug encounter you can claim, instead of a sub-medal, you will see a grass icon with a question mark. Select this Encounter Icon to start your encounter to catch Scatterbug.

To evolve Scatterbug into Vivillon you will need Scatterbug Candy, and you will need it a lot if you want to get all patterns. You can earn Scatterbug Candy by catching Scattebug, transferring extra Scatterbugs to Professor, and assigning Scatterbug as your Buddy.

There are a total of 18 different Vivillon patterns in Pokemon Go, and to evolve them, you will need a total of 2,250 Scatterbug Candy. To break it down, you will need 25 Scatterbug Candy to evolve Scatterbug into Spewpa, and 100 Scatterbug Candy to evolve into Vivillon. That means you need to walk a lot to get Scattebrug Candy, as you can get only 1 Candy for each km walked.

Now, there is a glitch that will make things easier, and you can get a lot of Scatterbug Candy. Check it out below.

Scatterbug Candy Glitch

Here are all the steps you need to follow to successfully get a lot of Scatterbug Candy:

  • Choose Scatterbug as your buddy and feed him a Poffin
  • Wait for Scatterbug to appear on the map
  • Change your Buddy to another Pokemon – different than Scatterbug
  • Then assign Scatterbug (the one fed with Poffin) as your Buddy once again
  • According to reports, you need to walk at 10km/h or 6.2 mph speed – we are still investigating
  • Check the Scatterbug Candy progress after 5mins and you should be all set

That’s all you need to know about the Scatterbug Candy glitch, so good luck with your Candy grinding and let’s evolve ’em all.

Let us know if this works for you and how many Scatterbug Candy you’ve got.

Hi, gamers! You can call me Mr. DComplex. I'm a gamer, a hardcore gamer. My favorite genres are Action RPG and MMORPG. At the moment I'm using my PC as my only gaming platform, but soon I might get a new PS4 from Angel. Update - Angel did get me a PS4, oh wait, it's the PS4 PRO 1TB!!! Much love bro!


  1. I got 105 candy from a 2km 30 minute walk. Still working as of 18 Jan! I’m interested to know whether this works with other buddy Pokemon, too?

    1. Hi and thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, we are not familiar with any other glitches like this one. If we have something, we promise to let you all know. Thanks again, and have a great day!
