Like a scrap of paper buffeted by a gentle breeze, this common Flutterscotch flutters around the garden. It's not particularly pretty, or useful, but I'm sure something wants to eat it!
|Species variants for the Flutterscotch|
Red Flutterscotch - Have a White Flutterscotch eat a poppy.
Just so you don’t get confused: there is no such creature in Viva Piñata called merely "Flutterscotch." Rather than have variants, every color of Flutterscotch is its own species. So for example, a Green Flutterscotch is a wholly separate animal than a Yellow Flutterscotch. A green and yellow cannot romance, and romancing a green does not give you an award for the yellow romance.
However, all types of Flutterscotches have the exact same requirements for Romance, and even share a common "Flutterscotch" house (so you don’t have to buy separate houses for different colors). The color is important, as several other species have requirements specifying a Flutterscotch color.
The first Flutterscotch you get will be white. You cannot attract any other color; you must force their creation through having a White eat something special (listed under the variants part, even though they’re not technically variants). You can’t even have Gretchen hunt for the colored ones; you can buy Whites and evolve them, but you’ll never be able to hunt for a colored one directly. Also, breeding any Flutterscotch produces a White, regardless of the parents’ color.
Flutterscotches are among the prettiest and most peaceful creatures you’ll see on Piñata Island. Easy to take care of and almost always avoiding fights, a rainbow of Flutterscotches would be a pretty cool visual for any garden, and is in fact a necessary requirement for another species, the Jameleon.
Since different color Flutterscotches are entirely different species, you can earn up to 10 Master Romancer awards for acquiring 7 of each color.
While the game (Encyclopedia and pinata awards) treats the Flutterscotches as different species, evolving Flutterscotches does not count toward the Evolver achievement.
Romancing two Flutterscotches of any color will always result in a White Flutterscotch offspring.
The only color wildcard Flutterscotch that can be hatched in-game is a white one. A one-of-a-kind Red Flutterscotch wildcard was hand-crafted and donated by Rare developers as a special contest prize, however it cannot be hatched in-game.
