  • Cool Two Vivillions now but I think its time for a more interesting Pokemon.

  • Actually very happy for this. I liked the style for this specific Vivillon, and I’m glad we ended up getting it.

  • Xmas Lopez

    I was hoping for an exclusive move/moveset but I guess I’ll be getting it just for the pattern.

  • Daniel Rossevelt

    why not release 20 butterfrees with unique patterns, maybe a pokeball pikachu too. Seriously WTF japan gets jirachi, darkrai, diance, and all we get two vivillons?

    • AuraGuyChris

      Unfortunately, Pokemon has fused with Japanese culture so much they get more events than outside the Nippon land.

      • Daniel Rossevelt

        I wouldn’t even care if they had more events, as other places had good events, also on a side note my Japanese teacher taught it as Nihon, it i s supposedly more widely used than Nippon.

        • Hinataharem

          Nippon is the older term for it

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    I actually like this pattern of Vivillon.

  • DarkRoxas

    Do this with Diancie, Game Freak, please.

    • AuraGuyChris

      GameStop: Haha, no.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        annoying as hell

  • Nobody


  • harmonyworld

    oh boy, another colorful butterfly that I don’t even like or will ever use….
    Can I get like, an infernape dressed like the monkey king or something or….anything else besides this pokemon that I don’t even like…AGAIN~

  • fyi1191

    Players care about this? Why can’t they come up with something different.

    • Vash bane

      collectors … there’s a few sites that all they talk about are these.

  • triablos

    You guys can complain all you want, but one day these vivillions will be rare and people will trade Mews for them.

    • Akemi Homura

      Not with cloning they won’t be. Nothing is rare anymore *sigh*

    • Eder García

      there’s a lot of cloned Diancies over there

      • triablos

        I’ll take one if you have a spare :)

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      yeah not really? cloning is easy

      • triablos

        I was totally being serious.

        And seeing all this cloning talk going around, is it that much of a problem now? I used to trade a lot back in gen V and there were cloned pokes but it seems like its an outbreak now

  • SuperSailorV

    I missed out on the grand opening Pikachu plush, buuut I am getting that pin. lol

  • Akemi Homura

    It doesn’t look like they ship to Canada yet. *sigh*

  • Eder García

    i just got this Vivillon and i am planing to restart the game (i bought the Y version used) there’s a possibility to obtain that pkmn again?

    • Kitsune

      You could always use the Pokemon Bank to transfer whatever legendaries and unique Pokemons you want to keep.

      • Eder García

        going to buy an eShop card tomorrow for the bank… i just wanted to confirm or deny that possibility (having 2 pokeball vivillon)

  • Tenabrus

    another pokemon that will rot in my PC… good

  • Anesia Hunter

    enough with the vivillon! give us shiny legendaries or more info about pokemon omega ruby and alpha sapphire.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    damnit I missed the other vivillon with hold hands :{ Meh kinda pointless to have this one

  • Snorlaxation

    No offense (not much anyway) to the other Holding Hands Vivillon, but this design is the one that lots of people wanted instead. Jwittz comes to mind too.

    Honestly, i’d like for more alternate colored Pokemon, or theme Pokemon, like that Pikachu coming up where she(?)’s dressed up as a wrestler and teacher and other stuff. Or Pokemon that have different colors, like a Pikachu with Raichu’s color, or crap like that. Not necessarily shiny, but different.

  • Eder García

    and the UK got an event Charizard instead? wth?

  • ‘For those of you in Europe & Australia, the special PokéBall Pattern Vivillon has had its online event announced. It has been confirmed that this distribution will run on European and Australian games from August 29th 2014 to September 8th 2014. If you received the Vivillon in the Pokémon Center in Paris or at Gamescom next week, you can’t receive it again’

    Might be usefull if the mods could paste this in the article to avoid region confusion :)
