Special ‘Fancy Pattern’ Vivillon Download Coming + PGL Events

It has been revealed that once the Global Trade Station, or GTS, reaches 100 million trades a Vivillon with a special wing pattern will be distributed!

There are also a variety of new events coming to the PGL, via the official site:

June 6-8: Think Fast Competition: Single Battle
This newly announced Single Battle competition will be the shortest and the fastest yet. For those who have a tough time setting aside time for battling, this competition is perfect for you. Use this chance to quickly and easily experience battling other Pokémon players from around the world.

Late June: International Challenge June
In the international arena, we will continue to run preliminaries for the Pokémon World Championships to help determine who will get to represent their country at Worlds! Master Trainers of the world, take part!

July: Eevee Friendly Match (tentative title)
This Rotation Battle competition will be limited to Eevee and its evolutions only!

July: All Star ☆ Battle (tentative title)
This all-star Double Battle competition will allow you to use any Pokémon you wish, including Legendary and Mythical Pokémon! Plus, for this competition only, you will also be able to use Pokémon that you have brought from past games in the series using the Poké Transporter!
Note: You will only be able to include a maximum of two of certain Legendary Pokémon and Mythical Pokémon in your Battle Box.
Note: Diancie will not be eligible for entry in this competition.

August: Think Fast Competition: Double Battle
In this competition, you will not get to see your opponent’s team before the battle begins. And with only one backup Pokémon allowed on your team, each contestant will be limited to three Pokémon total! This will be the fastest and shortest Double Battles from the time you send out your Pokémon until the battle is over.

Autumn: Fairy Type Cup (tentative title)
Look forward to a competition where entry will be limited to Fairy-type Pokémon. The battle format is to be determined.

Autumn: Halloween Party (tentative title)
In a special competition for the Halloween season, we will have a special Single Battle competition for Ghost-type Pokémon only. And that’s not all—every contestant must include Gourgeist in their Battle Box, as well!
