Vivillon It is one of the most unique Pokemon, because it has different color patterns. The wings of this butterfly, an evolution of Spewpa, will have different colors depending on the region of the world in which they are found.
In previous games, Vivillon appeared to us in different colors depending on the country we were in playing (recognizing the region to which the console was connected).
But in the last Switch games, Pokemon Scarlet and Purple, that disappeared, and we could only get the fancy pattern, the other ones weren’t in the game…
…up to version 1.2.0, which adds support for Pokemon Goincluding an easier way to get regional versions of Vivillon: through postcards in Pokemon GO!
From now on, you can connect Pokemon GO with the Pokemon Scarlet and Purple games on Switch. From Pokemon GO, you can send postcards from your postcard album that you’ve gotten at pokéstops, or received from your Pokemon GO friends.
When you do, you will see the following. In Pokemon GO you’ll receive a chest of coins that makes it easy for you to capture Gimmighoul in walking form, while in the Switch games you’ll receive 50 coins, 1 max revive, and the appearance of Vivillon with “an uncommon reason.”
From this moment on, the Vivillon that appear in the game they will have the color motif of the region from where the postcard comes.
That way, if you have Pokemon Go friends from different countries, or you travel to other countries yourself, it will be easier for you to get the Vivillon: just open Pokemon GO, Get a postcard by spinning PokéStop discs at the destination, and then you can send the postcard to the Switch game to capture it.
