Back in May, The Pokémon Company announced that they would distribute a new “Fancy Pattern Vivillon” once 100 million Pokémon had been traded between users via the Global Trading Station.


This milestone was recently reached, and the distribution has gone live as of this morning.


The Fancy Pattern Vivillon comes with a special moved called Hold Hands.

    Hahaha, hold hands! That’s so cute.


    Doesn’t look like it does much though. :O

    • It’s like a pretty splash attack! :O

      • JustThisOne

        Should do it every time the enemy is asleep to really rub it in. :>

        • You’re making me reconsider my trade crap for gold tactic. *contemplates life choices*

    • Eder García

      bro shake?

  • Go2hell66

    so how do i get this pokemon?

    • Jesse

      You need to use the Mystery Gift option on the main menu and select “Via the Internet”. ^^

    “The Fancy Pattern Vivillon comes with a special moved called Hold Hands.”

    How lewd.

  • Sweet. Time to snag this little bugger and pawn him/her off to one of those collectors for a really good Pokemon. *Wrings hands evilly*

    • God

      I believe event pokemons can’t be traded.

      • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

        Not through GTS, that is.

        • God

          You can do it locally?! I have a lil’ bro and sis that play pokemon! i’m gonna trick them so hard!

  • nonscpo

    Great I needed a reason to play this game, now I finally have one.

  • Maybe we could get that Diancie that want live in Japan yesterday.

    Just a thought.

    • ZnTxn

      You will… as a Toys R’ Us/Gamestop exclusive ;___;

      • AuraGuyChris

        GameStop is far more common in cities than Toys R’ Us, though I think Game Freak will distribute it online.

        • They tied Diancie to the movie, I believe.

          If they do the same to the US release…well I’m screwed.

          • Ben Sylvia

            Haha! LOL, US doesn’t get the movies in theaters! XD

          • Steven Higgins

            Not anymore

          • KanjiLikesBoys

            They could never do that here! Pokemon hasn’t been in a movie theater in years!

    • ishyg

      Damn it, I totally forgot about that!

    • Nobody

      I would REALLY prefer that.

  • Got mine. Will probably never be used. More like a virtual trophy.

  • Snorlaxation

    I might give it a shot in battle, or I might just leave it as a pretty DLC trophy.

  • KanjiLikesBoys

    Never bothered to catch/evolve Vivillion
    Didn’t even know about it’s wing pattern thing until I saw a post on a game blog

  • rurin

    is there a time limit on the distribution? I’m on vacation and didn’t bring Pokemon with me…

    • Slite

      Hello, the distribution is until July 31

  • Kami nii

    I just got this one, It has crappy stats not recommended for Online Battle IV is decent all around T_T This butterfly is only for collectors

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Hold hands: This move has no known effect in battle. When a Pokémon uses this move,
    it and its target ally will perform a brief animation together.

    another useless move..thanks gamefreak
