Pokemon X and Y are just around the corner, and some attention has gone to Vivillon due to its many patterns.

As noted by many Pokemon X and Y fans out there, early players have noticed many different color patterns of Vivillon, although the specific cause of these differences are still being debated.

There is the meadow pattern that is pink and lavender, the polar pattern that is dark blue, continental pattern which is eggshell and pink, garden pattern which is green and blue, and there may be even more out there.

Even Vivillon's X and Y Pokedex entry suggests some mystery behind its color patterns.

"It uses its wings to scatter its scales or create a strong wind to attack. Vivillon is said to have a secret hidden in the colorful decorative pattern on its wings."

Currently, the most popular theory is that Vivillon's color pattern is determined by the player's actual location.

"There was some suggestion that it's based on your real-world location.
Maybe people will trade internationally to get every form! That would be cool," writes TLM of Pokejungle.

"I heard someone guess the reason there is only one Bug-type is because Vivillons forms do different things," continues TheRece25.

Given that Pokemon X and Y are doing a lot with gender differences (Meowstic) and forms (like Doublade and Aegislash), only time will tell what's behind the mystery of Vivillon.

That would make a great episode for the X and Y anime, wouldn't it?
