Pokemon X and Y
Pokemon X and Y will get new free fancy pattern Pokemon, Vivillonpokemon.com

In celebration of the milestone event in trading of Pokemon online, Pokemon Company has announced that video game, Pokemon X and Y will get a special version Pokemon, the fancy pattern Vivillon.

Since the launch of the game on 12 October, players have traded nearly 100 million Pokemon via Global Trade Station. However, this offer is only for a limited time and players will have to grab it before it expires.

Vivillon is a special bug/flying-type Pokemon that is being offered for free. It is basically a butterfly. It is popular for trading since it has different wing patterns depending on the real-life location of its owner. The company has also said that this particular Pokemon will not be found in the wild in-game and this is one of the opportunities that trainers can use to grab it now. Vivillon will also be equipped with an exclusive Hold Hands move.
