Default Vivillon, Mystery of the Wings - Can we discover the hidden secret?

"Vivillon is said to have a secret hidden in the colorful decorative pattern on its wings."

Can we, the members of the 3DS forums, discover that secret?

What has been discovered since the release of Pok?mon X and Y is that Vivillon comes in many different patterns. And the pattern each one has is dependant on the real world regional setting of the 3DS each player has. Scatterbugs (unevolved Vivillon) caught on a Japanese 3DS will evolve to Meadow Pattern Vivillon, on an Australian 3DS they evolve to River Pattern Vivillon. Some patterns will evolve from more than one region. Some regions are parts of a continent, some a country, some are only part of a country.

This thread aims to discover all available patterns, and the regions they appear in. I ask that if you discover a pattern or region not yet listed you post them here, so this post may be updated. Also, if you are trying to collect specific patterns, or all of them, this thread is available to organise Scatterbug trades.

So far there are 18 confirmed patterns:



Locations

Meadow - Japan

Polar - Canada (Nova Scotia), Norway, USA (NY State, Massachusett)

Garden - UK, Virginia (USA)

Savannah -

Marine - France, Spain, Potugal, Greece

Continental - Polland, Germany, Holland

Tundra - Norway (?)

Elegant - Japan, USA

Modern - USA (Ohio, Texas, North Carolina, Louisianna, Florida, Georgia, Nebraska, unspecified state), Canada (Manitoba)

Sun - Mexico

Icy Snow - Finland

Sandstorm -

High Plains - USA (California, Arizona), Canada (British Columbia)

Monsoon -

River - Australia

Jungle - Malaysia

Archipelago -

Ocean - Hawaii (USA)

You get Vivillon at level 10 like older bug Pok?mon, right? If so, I'll try to evolve one tomorrow morning and see what pattern I get over here in Florida.

Actually, level 12. It's a three stage, with Spewpa in the middle. Spewpa is level 9.

It's strange that all Spewpa and Scatterbug appear to be identical...

Well, I got excited and decided to train it now. It just evolved and I ended up with the "modern" coloring. Nothing new, but at least you'll be able to add Florida to your list.

Hmmm... Sounds interesting. I'll evolve one on my next sitting and tell you what I got.

With experience share it shouldn't take more than 2 or 3 trainer battles

Mine evolved into an Ocean one. Which is kind of understandable being from Hawaii.

Mine evolved into a Marine one. This theory seems to make sense

Hey guys, had no state set and got Modern. Not sure if this is news or not.
Edit: I was thinking it would explain why so many states are under modern, because people never set the state?

Yeah, I had USA set, but not state. I'm in NY which is listed for Polar. So I think there needs to be some verification that the state was set considering how long the list is for Modern lol.

i guess the pattern is the wings' colours match the general surroundings of your area your 3ds is set to
kinda like camoflage, not really a secret...

The description in Y pretty much says this ^, so I think there is more to it.

There have been suggestions if you lay each panel in the wings side by side they could be orming a basic topographic map. I'm not sure how true that would be with all the brighter colours, but it may be worth lookng into further. Imagine a hidden treasure map hidden in the patterns....

Pattern: Modern
Location: TN, USA


If you guys want to trade pokemon, that's fine.

But make a thread in Matchmaking about it.

This is about posting what pattern your vivillion has.

Idk, but the wings colors are purely for cosmetic purposes and nothing more.
The number 666 btw means nothing for the japanese.
It's rather the number 41 that has a certain resemblance to the word death in japanese.
41 is golbat. The moar u know.

I guess the "secret" would be which designs correspond to which location.

3DS friends, I ask for your help because GTS folks are greedy and useless.

I need six five four two one more Vivillons to complete the set.

Continental, Garden, Meadow, Monsoon, River, and Tundra.

If you're willing to help, leave a message on my profile with details of what you'd like in return.

Michigan, USA - Polar

Are you guys sure it has to do with region? It seems kind of random or maybe dependent on location within the game.

Nothing happens as far as I can see, other than the satisfaction of having them all.
