Vivillon appears in Pokémon GO!

Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon are now appearing worldwide in Pokémon GO!

Trainers have a chance to encounter Scatterbug when they collect and pin Postcards received from different regions. Start collecting by pinning a Postcard to unlock the Vivillon Collector medal!

Vivillon patterns

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.

  • Archipelago
  • Continental
  • Elegant
  • Garden
  • High Plains
  • Icy Snow
  • Jungle
  • Marine
  • Meadow
  • Modern
  • Monsoon
  • Ocean
  • Polar
  • River
  • Sandstorm
  • Savanna
  • Sun
  • Tundra

Trainers can check the Vivillon Map from the Pokédex or the Vivillon Collector medal page to see where different Vivillon can be found.

Additional details

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.
