Around 90 million Pokémon have been traded worldwide thus far via the Global Trade Station, and to celebrate the 100 million landmark, The Pokémon Company will distribute a new Fancy Pattern Vivillon.


Vivillon is a Pokémon that is unique in that the colours and patterns on its wings wary based on the real-world region in which a player lives. Due to this, Vivillon is a frequently traded Pokémon, since a number of players try to collect all the different regional patterns.


The “newly discovered” Vivillon will become available to players worldwide once 100 million Pokémon have been traded via the GTS. Just when that will happen remains to be seen.
