Vivillon (ビビヨン) is the 22nd Pokémon in the Kalos Central Pokédex. It is a Bug/Flying-Type, and it is known as the Scale Pokémon.

Vivillon can use one of two Abilities: Shield Dust, which stops the secondary effects of opposing Pokémon's attacks from working; or Compoundeyes; an Ability that increases the Accuracy of its moves by 30%. Vivillon's Hidden Ability is Friend Guard, which reduces the damage that Allied Pokémon take from a teammate's attacks.

Scatterbug can evolve into Spewpa at Level 9 and can evolve a second time into Vivillon at Level 12.

Vivillon is in the Bug Egg Group. It takes Vivillon One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.




Vivillon takes on the appearance of a dark moth with two antennae. While its main body stays the same, the pattern on its wings varies depending on the geographic locations set on your Nintendo 3DS.

There are 18 different wing patterns that Vivillon can have, with a 19th to be distributed worldwide once a total of 100 Million trades are done on the Generation 6 Global Trading System. This will be known as the "Fancy Vivillon".

There is also a 20th wing pattern, called the Poké Ball Pattern. The wing pattern of this Vivillon resemble a Poké Ball, hence the name.

Gender Differences

Vivillon doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Vivillon is in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With an amazing boosting move in Quiver Dance, Vivillon can establish itself as a top tier threat due to its ability to become among the tier's best offensive threats. Vivillon has a great STAB to work with in Hurricane and a great coverage move in Energy Ball to complement it well. With Compound Eyes, Vivillon has 97% accurate Sleep Powders and can incapacitate a Pokémon with ease as well as 91% accurate Hurricanes to spam without having to worry about it missing too often. Outside of the standard Quiver Dance Focus Sash set, Vivillon can run a Substitute + Quiver Dance set that reduces prediction and gives it a safety net against priority attackers while still maintaining an extremely threatening presence. Vivillon's biggest problems lie in its defenses and typing, which leaves it weak to numerous attacking types, to Stealth Rock, and to priority attacks. Its Speed stat before a boost is not the best, as it is forced to use a Focus Sash to hold up against some powerful offensive threats when setting up like Floatzel and Archeops.

Vivillon is also a usable option in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. Due to having one of the best boosting moves in the game in Quiver Dance, Vivillon is a potent sweeper in RU that acts as a solid late-game cleaner. Its ability Compound Eyes proves to be highly useful as it improves the accuracy of moves like Sleep Powder and Hurricane. It functions very well on offensive and bulky offense builds as a result of having a very accurate Sleep Powder and being a great set-up sweeper when its counters are eliminated. However, Vivillon has a crippling weakness to Stealth Rock which can be highly problematic as it takes away 50% of its health. It is also very frail, which means that it frequently has to run a Focus Sash to compensate for its lack of bulk, making entry hazard control even more crucial. Its Speed stat is also very awkward, leaving it outsped by the likes of Meloetta and Drapion.
