How to Catch Vivillon in Pokemon GO?

It’s not possible to acquire Vivillon directly in Pokémon GO. You have to get access to Scatterbug and evolve it into Vivillon by leveling it up. There are 18 different types of Vivillon in the game based on their wings patterns, and the particular Vivillon you get depends on the region of its base Scatterbug.

When do you encounter Vivillon in Pokemon GO?

Before evolving your Scatterbug into Vivillon, you need to trigger the Scatterbug encounter event. It is done by pinning the Postcards you receive through your friends’ gifts. Once you have an adequate number of Postcards pinned in your Postcard Book, you can catch Scatterbug.

For in-depth details on Scatterbug’s encounter and Postcards requirements, check out our guide on how to get Scatterbug in Pokémon GO.
