Magearna is a brand new Mythical Pokemon of which will feature in the upcoming movie, set to release later this year.
Nintendo have said that Magearna has a metallic body and was created by humans 500 years ago. The fact that Magearna has a metallic body suggests that the Pokemon could have Steel-type qualities. However, it is not yet known what Magearna’s abilities in battle may be.
We will have the opportunity to see Magearna in action in the latest cinematic adventure. The newest addition to the world appears to be very central to the movie’s plot, which The Pokemon Company International describes as follows:
In this latest full-length feature film, a mysterious force binds Ash to the Mythical Pokemon Volcanion when it falls from the sky. Volcanion can’t get away, and Ash is dragged along as it continues on its mission. They arrive in a city of cogs and gears, where a corrupt minister has stolen the ultimate invention: the Artificial Pokemon Magearna, created 500 years ago. The minister plans to use Magearna’s mysterious power to take control of the mechanical kingdom.
Can Ash and Volcanion work together to rescue Magearna? One of the greatest battles in Pokemon history is about to unfold!
Little is known as to when fans will be able to play as Magearna in a video game, perhaps Magearna will be made available as part of Pokemon‘s 20th anniversary monthly Mythical distribution or could even feature in the rumoured Pokemon Z game.
All that I know is that Magearna is very cute indeed and I cannot wait to add yet another entry to my ever-growing Pokedex, because 721 is just not enough.
