Pokemon Scarlet & Violet reintroduced the Vivillon family of Bug-types, which can have over 18 different unique wing patterns. Here’s how to find the Scatterbug family in Generation 9.

In every mainline Pokemon generation, there is always an early-game Bug-type to help players fill out their team in the beginning of their adventure.

While players may be tempted to stick with the newly introduced Tarountula and Spidops, there are plenty of returning options like the Scatterbug evolutionary family.

Additionally, players trying to fill out their Pokedex completely may want to see every one of Vivillon’s different wing patterns. So, here’s everything trainers need to know about finding Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

How to evolve Scatterbug and Spewpa

In line with other early-game Bug-type Pokemon, Scatterbug and Spewpa will both evolve at very low levels. Scatterbug will evolve at level 9, while Spewpa evolves at level 12.

As such, trainers wanting to use Vivillon straight away should have no trouble at all.

How to obtain all Vivillon patterns

Unfortunately for trainers looking to own all of Vivillons different wing patterns in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, you can’t do so in the Switch game alone.

This is because every Spewpa evolved in Scarlet & Violet will turn into a Vivillon with the Fancy pattern no matter where it’s evolved. As such, players who want to collect every different pattern will need to rely on either Pokemon Go or a previous collection in Pokemon Home.
