Pokémon trading is serious business and business is booming, friends. In fact, the trading numbers for Pokémon X & Y are downright staggering, with over 90 million Pokemon having been traded worldwide through the Global Trading System (GTS). So Nintendo is preparing a reward for the 100 million milestone in the form of a new Vivillon pattern.
"To celebrate the 100 million Pokémon traded via the GTS, the Fancy Pattern Vivillon will soon be available!" reads the announcement on the Pokémon website. "Currently, about 90 million Pokémon have been traded worldwide. Once we reach 100 million, you'll be able to receive Fancy Pattern Vivillon via a special distribution event. So we're calling on everyone to keep trading so we hit that huge milestone! Once the goal is reached, check back at Pokemon.com to find out how to get the Fancy Pattern Vivillon into your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game."
The Fancy Pattern Vivillon's differences are mainly in its wings, with numerous patterns available all around the world. Bulbapedia has a full collection of the Bug/Flying-type Vivillon's patterns, many of which are determined by a region's climate. However, the Fancy Pattern Vivillon will be available to all regions once the 100 million trade milestone is reached.
