Scatterbug will appear in a particular way while playing Pokémon Go. Scatterbug will be a unique Pokémon, and how you encounter and catch it might be a little tricky for some players. However, there’s a small thing you need to make sure you do if you want to find it. Here’s what you need to know about how to catch Scatterbug in Pokémon Go.

Where to find Scatterbug in Pokémon Go

For those keen to track down Scatterbug, it will only appear in your mobile game if you collect and pin postcards from different regions of the world. This means you need to have friends from these areas sending you gifts. When you receive a gift, you can pin this postcard to your Postcard Book. The postcard icon will appear on the bottom right of any gift you receive.

Once you have at least one of the available regions pinned to your Postcard Book, Scatterbug will appear on the bottom of your Vivillon Collector badge page, and you will have the option to catch it. That Scatterbug will then evolve into that particular Vivillon type from that habitat and have a pattern from that region.
