The Pokemon company unveiled a new, limited edition "fancy" pattern for Vivillion for Pokemon X & Y to commemorate over 100 million trades via the Global Trade Station, the game developer announced yesterday.

The level 12 Bug/Flying-type Pokemon, armed with a unique, one-of-a-kind multi-color look, comes with the Shield Dust ability, which blocks the additional effects of attacks taken and the moves Gust, Light Screen, Struggle Bug and Hold Hands. Strong against Dragon-types, the Pokemon, if raised properly and with the right nature, could be one of the stronger Bug-types in the game.

According to the Pokemon Company, Vivillion, which was also featured on the Pokemon X & Y animated series and comes in 19 other patterns, dependent on your geographical location, will not be available in the wild and will only be available for a limited time.

Here’s how to get the limited edition Pokemon, courtesy of Nintendo:
