How To Get Vivillon In Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO Vivillon Patterns Explained

Vivillon is famous for its many different eye-catching patterns. You can catch 18 different patterned Vivillon in Pokemon GO. However, to get all the various kinds, you have to pin Postcards received from Trainers, PokeStops, or Gyms in different regions. You can pin your own Postcards or Postcards in gifts received from friends.

When you pin a Postcard from a region that Vivillon inhabits, you will acquire the Vivillon Collector Medal. As you pin Postcards from different regions, you will collect sub-Medals within the Vivillon Collector Medal. Each sub-Medal is associated with a distinct Vivillon pattern region.

To get your first Vivillon Collector sub-Medal, you must gather three Postcards from a region containing one of the numerous Vivillon patterns. Progressing through the Vivillon Collector sub-Medals will lead to an encounter with Scatterbug. Scatterbugs from different regions eventually evolve into Vivillon with different patterns.

 After completing a sub-Metal, you can continue to advance through the same sub-Metal to earn additional encounters with Scatterbug. But it’ll take more Postcards to raise the sub-Metal rank each time.
