Vivillon Debuts and Vivillon Medal



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?

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.

  • Vivillon (Archipelago)
  • Vivillon (Continental)
  • Vivillon (Elegant)

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

When you pin a Postcard, it makes progress on an individual Vivillon region or sub-medal. When you pin three from the same region for the first time, you’ll earn a Scatterbug encounter. To start the encounter, check the medal for the region in your Vivillon Collector 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.

The current requirements for each sub-medal are as follows:

  • 3 pinned Postcards for the first encounter,
  • 9 pinned Postcards for the second encounter,
  • 15 pinned Postcards for the third encounter,
  • and 15 pinned Postcards for every additional encounter

Also note that you can only pin up to three of your own Postcards per day to make progress towards the medal. You will need help from friends if you want to make more progress in a day.
