The Scatterbug family has made its way over to Pokémon Go, giving you the opportunity to add Vivillon to your growing collection of Pokémon Go. Over 18 unique versions of Vivillon are in the game, and you can collect them all regardless of your location, so long as you’re pinning the correct postcards to your Postcard Book. You will need to evolve Scatterbug’s second form, Spewpa, into Vivillon before marking it off in your Pokédex. Here’s what you need to know about how to evolve SPewpa into Vivillon in Pokémon Go.
Evolving Spewpa into Vivillon in Pokémon Go
It all comes down to having enough Scatterbug candy in your collection. You will need to encounter Scatterbug in the wild, capture the Pokémon, and then transfer it to earn more Candy. There’s also the option of catching this Pokémon and using a Pinap Berry, increasing the amount of Candy you receive whenever you catch a Pokémon. However, if you fail the capture Scatterbug after giving it a Pinap berry, you will need to provide it with another berry to receive the bonus.
When you’ve collected at least 100 Scatterbug Candy, the option to evolve Spewpa into Vivillon will appear. Every time you attempt to evolve this Pokémon, it will cost 100 candies. The type of pattern Vivillon has on its wings when it evolves is based on the Scatterbug spawning in your overworld. This is dictated by the type of postcards pinned to your Postcard Book. The more postcards you have of a particular region, the greater your chance of encountering a Scatterbug from that area, and Vivillon’s wings will reflect the type of habitat it came from.
There are 18 types of Vivillon patterns for you to find in Pokémon Go, which means you need to catch multiple Scatterbugs to collect each one. You can remove particular postcards from your Postcard Book if you want to narrow down the Scatterbug spawn you receive and where it came from, making it easier to find the Vivillon you need to complete your collection.
