Pokemon X


Been enjoying your special Vivillon in Pokemon X & Y? Japanese players have a little bit more to look forward to over the next couple of months it seems, with a couple more special Pokemon headed there way. First, to coincide with the annual Tanabata Festival, a Level 10 Jirachi will be distributed from August 1st – 31st. It has the moves Wish, Swift, Healing Wish & Moonblast and will come holding a Star Piece. The other special Pokemon to be distributed will be another Vivillon, this time with a Pokeball pattern. Available August 1st – 18th, players will be able to pick up this Vivillon from Pokemon Centers around the country to celebrate the Pokemon Center Summer Festival. The Vivillon will be identical to the one distributed to French players last month.


The Nintendo Zones located in the UK retail chain game have a special treat for Pokemon fans. You will have the ability to obtain a special X/Y Charizard that contains the Charizardite for the opposite game. The promo will be available from July 11th – August 10th.

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y players can now download Fancy Pattern Vivillon. The special creature is being distributed to celebrate 100 million trades in the GTS, which happened yesterday. Fancy Pattern Vivillon can’t be found under normal circumstances, so this is most definitely a unique promotion.


Currently, about 90 million Pokémon have been traded worldwide, and to celebrate the landmark of 100 million Pokémon trades via the Global Trade Station (GTS), a new Fancy Pattern Vivillon will become available to players.

Vivillon is a unique Pokémon in that the patterns and colours on its wings typically vary based on the real-world region in which a player lives. Because of this characteristic, players around the world have been exchanging Vivillon via the GTS to collect all of the regional patterns.

A special “Fancy Pattern” Vivillon distribution has been announced for Pokemon X/Y. This will take place once the GTS hits over 100 million Pokemon traded. Currently, the number is sitting at 85 million.

Pokemon X/Y’s Vivillon distribution will be taking place worldwide, though the exact details are unknown. We should be hearing more the GTS reaches its milestone!


A Pokemon Center in Paris will temporarily open next month – between June 4th and June 21st. Those who visit the location will have an opportunity to download a unique Pokemon.

For the first time, the special Poke Ball-patterned Vivillon will be distributed. It comes in at level 12 and features the Stun Spore, Gust, Light Screen and Struggle Bug moves.

It’s unclear if the event will be available outside of France at this time.
