Which ability is better in-game for Vivillon?

I just caught a Scatterbug that's Timid with Compoundeyes, but Shield Dust seems like the better ability. Should I keep trying for a Shield Dust one that's Modest or Timid?

Sister-How would you feel if you were playing a game, and in that game, Mario was a baby? Me-I'd be playing Yoshi's Island, so I would be feeling great.

Well, Compoundeyes boosts the accuracy of most attacks, and if a Pokémon with Compoundeyes is in the front of the party, you'll find wild Pokémon with held items more frequently.

If it gets sleep powder, then go with Compoundeyes.

Goomy.

Compound Eyes boosts its Sleep Powder and Hurricane (!!!) to 97.5% and 91% accuracy, respectively. Go with that. No question.

Yeah, and if Vivillon's move pool is anything like Butterfree's, most of its offensive moves will have 100 or close to accuracy. So wouldn't Shield dust be better, I guess unless you were relying on the Powder moves or supersonic...

Thank you guys, I've decided to go with the one with Compoundeyes. This will be helpful to spam Poisonpowder for hours.

Do note that it only gets Poison Powder (and Sleep Powder for that matter) by Heart Scaling.
