Unveiling the Vivillon Patterns
Scatterbug’s evolution into Vivillon is influenced by the climate of its habitat, resulting in 18 different patterns that have been discovered in Pokemon GO so far. If you collect multiple Postcards from a particular 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
For trainers who wish to keep track of their Vivillon pattern collection, Pokemon GO is introducing the Vivillon Collector medal. Pinning a Postcard will unlock this medal and provide a brief explanation on how to encounter Scatterbug. Additionally, trainers can collect sub-medals within the Vivillon Collector medal by pinning both their own Postcards and those received from friends. These sub-medals are associated with different Vivillon pattern regions, allowing trainers to encounter Scatterbug from around the world. It’s important to note that trainers can pin up to three of their own Postcards per day to make progress towards the medal. As the sub-medal rank increases, the number of Postcards required to raise it will also increase.
This latest update from Niantic brings a fresh wave of excitement to Pokemon GO! Trainers now have the opportunity to collect the evolutionary line of Scatterbug and discover the breathtaking patterns of Vivillon.
