Magearna REVEALED!

Pokémon MagearnaWe now have an official English name for the Pokémon revealed in CoroCoro’s latest issue, as well as art for it! It is Magearna! There’s also a snippet about the upcoming movie which also reveals that this will be an event Legendary:

In this latest cinematic adventure, Ash meets the Mythical Pokémon Volcanion when it crashes down from the sky, creating a cloud of dust —and a mysterious force binds the two of them together! Volcanion despises humans and tries to get away, but it’s forced to drag Ash along as it continues its rescue mission. They arrive in a city of cogs and gears, where a corrupt minister has stolen the ultimate invention: the Artificial Pokémon Magearna, created 500 years ago. He plans to use its mysterious power to take control of this mechanical kingdom! Can Ash and Volcanion work together to rescue Magearna? One of the greatest battles in Pokémon history is about to unfold!


Do I even need to ask you to share what you think? I’m sure the comment section is going to be busy regardless 😉

  1. Whelp there we go………no additional info and we’re still kept hanging……..y can’t they just tell us the name of the next game?!?!?!?!?!?! Lol

  2. So the name is combination of “machina” and “gear”, for anyone curious. They did confirm that it’s Mythical, though, which could give credence to the Gen 6.5 situation.

  3. “Azoth is the essential agent of transformation in alchemy. It is the name given by ancient alchemists to Mercury, the animating spirit hidden in all matter that makes transmutation possible.”
    So apparently azoth isn’t just a random word with the letters az invented by gamefreak. Anyway this thing about transformation and transmutation makes me wonder if it has anything to do with zygarde’s forms or if it hints that magiana or volcanion have a more powerful form

    1. wooaaah man that’s totally true, this might mean that the next Pokemon game is about Alchemy which is so cool, maybe it has something to do with the Eternal Flower or the ultimate weapon, if gamefreak connects everything together then i will bow down and never question them again.

  4. Something tells me that Az created magiana and that he is actually a master alchemist, that’s why he is immortal and sort of explains how he built the ultimate weapon from x and y. As for why did he created magiana and the azoth kingdom maybe he was just bored idk

      1. I was actually going to sleep too lol but then i saw that magiana english name was revealed and started searching for things like azoth and alchemy

  5. So I’m guessing it might be a 6.5 gen and not a 7 gen since the other next gen mons release in movies like Lucario or Zoraok weren’t mythical Pokemon and Magearna is, but correct me if I’m wrong on this.

        1. I didnt watch any of them so i really dont know hehe but if they are gen 3 then manaphy is a gen 4 mythical so yeah XD

          1. With that in mind, I guess it’s still reasonable to believe that Magearna is a Gen 7 Mythical. It’s just impossible to know right now.

      1. Dude thank you I was about edit my post because I finally got a chance to do some research and saw I was wrong. Lol

  6. Wow, was the name change really necessary? I’m gonna keep calling her Magiana, wtf is a Magearna, it’s so much more complicated to say.

      1. When I first read this annoucment, I didn’t hear “gear”. Instead I heard “ear” and it certainly has big ears too.

    1. “ギアル” (i.e. “Giaru”) is the Japanese name of Klink. However, “Giaru” is just the literal romanisation of each character: it is more accurately romanised as “Gear.” Similarly, the “ギア” (gia) in Magiana’s name was likely always intended to sound like the word “Gear.”
      Kind of like Serebii (セレビィ) vs Celebi. They’re essentially the same thing, just the “レ” character is literally translated to “re” instead of “le,” but can really go either way.

  7. Ooooh I hope we get megas for Gen 2 and 4 starters. We got Gen 1 and 3 starters at basically the same time. I remember when Coro Coro revealed Archie and I think the starter megas for Swampert and Sceptile and moving told me and I was in the Coca-Cola Museum and I had no service and I couldn’t get it to pull up and almost had a heart attack when Archie was hot. I hope we get fossil megas too and stuff

    I still think this is the welcoming of Gen 7.

    1. I still believe that the next game (the last of Gen 6) will be the last game to feature Mega Evolution. With that in mind, I think they’ll have a blowout of Gen 2, 4, 5 and 6 Pokemon to wrap up the concept quite nicely. I still believe what Sugimori said about Gen 7 being based on “simplicity” of mechanics and Pokemon design.

      1. I still think the next games will continue adding Mega Evolution. Simplicity could mean a return to the bases of Pokemon. Yet, Mega Evolution has become such a huge feature, it would be ridiculous to drop it. They have plenty of Pokemon to make Megas for. Why not add to the basket?

        1. I don’t know if you remember my opinions on Mega Evolution back in 2013, but I was never a fan. I thought that it blocked Game Freak from designing actual evolutions for Pokemon. So in a way I think that adding Mega Evolutions to Gen 7 would take Pokemon away from its core concepts. Also, Mega Evolution is the basis of the story for XY and (partially) ORAS, so retreading that ground could be considered unoriginal.

          1. I have to disagree with you. I believe that Mega Evolutions add a refresh to older Pokemon. It’s extremely easy to give a Mega Stone to anyone. For example, Pokemon Origins just had Mr. Fuji give Red a Mega Stone without any correlation to X/Y or OR/AS. Yes, the lore of Mega Evolution is tied to X/Y and OR/AS, but it doesn’t stop GameFreak from just giving the items to new trainers. Honestly, it doesn’t have to be story driven at all. What is GameFreak going to do? Just drop all of the previously made Megas and continue. It’s a feature to stay for the whole series.

          2. I will say that I understand them for Stage 3 Pokemon and Legendaries. Neither of them were capable of evolving further than their current state, but given a strong bond with their trainer they can reach a new level of potential. Now that makes sense. The part that really irks me is that single and dual-stage Pokemon are getting Mega Evolutions, which means that Game Freak couldn’t make legitimate new evolutions for those Pokemon in the future. It’s inserting a gameplay mechanic where it doesn’t belong, in my opinion. Absol, Sableye, Mawile, Camerupt, etc. are now out of the running for real evolutions because the game has dictated these forms as their “maximum” potential. I don’t know, it just doesn’t sit right with me.

          3. We don’t know that. We know the games take place in an alternate universe/dimension. They could easily play on this again for future games.

          4. I have to agree with Afarr. You cant just drop a concept completely and never come back to it. I think its a feature to stay.

          5. Somewhat like you back when they first came out I was disgusted and angry, but I’ve since warmed up to megas. I think it would be a waste of potential if they stopped making them and I honestly doubt game freak would pull such a move, but I definitely agree standard evolutions should come back in a big way, especially compared to the megas for single-stage pokémon or pokémon like Bannette or Jynx who deserve proper evos. And gen V does kind of need a Gen II to Gen I treatment. Ideally for me new evos and megas would coexist, and I think that would pretty much make everyone happy, but I think gamefreak has decided they won’t tamper with old evo lines anymore other than with megas and maybe if we’re lucky the occasional eeveelution. It’s sad and annoying but Game Freak can be quite stubborn like that.

  8. I still can’t believe how the past week has gone for Pokemon fans. So many people were cynical pre-February 10th, saying that CoroCoro would let fans down. Instead we have Magearna, a new Mythical man-made Pokemon, being featured in this year’s movie and everyone is going nuts. I just hope this isn’t another Munchlax situation where we’re left in the dark for over a year without a game reveal. It’s just hard for me to believe that Pokemon Z would have new Pokemon, but Zygarde’s forms still aren’t in the game either so it makes the most sense for both of these to join together. Who knows, maybe that leak I posted earlier is partially legitimate and we have 70 new Pokemon coming our way?


  9. I believe (slightly) in Generation 6.5, mostly due to the hackers not finding Magerna. The next Pokemon games are still shrouded by a heavy amount of mystery. Zygarde’s New Forms, Magerna, and Volcanion are the driving force. I still think the game will take place in Kalos. Yet, maybe Azoth will be a new region you explore. At this point, I’m going to let the tides of time decide what happens in the future of Pokemon. Let’s just keep on speculating. The next Pokemon games or the future of the series was said to be about “flowers”, so let’s see!

    1. This year is already off to a MUCH better start than last year, or even 2014 before it. We have the anniversary of Pokemon and the Super Bowl commercial in the first two months, and now we have a 722nd Pokemon just like that! All of this confusion and interweaving between Gen 6.5 and Gen 7 is extremely confusing, and I think it will stay that way until more information is revealed. So far, “flowers” hasn’t matched with any hints we’ve seen so far. I think the fact that it’s plural says something, since Eternal Flower Floette has a singular flower. Maybe I’m just overthinking that one.

    2. Maybe it’ll be Pokémon AZ with AZ’s Floette as the mascot?

      Also, if you look at it a certain way, Zygarde’s Complete Forme slightly resembles and A.

    3. Remember all the talk about Pokemon Z primarily focusing on the environmental aspects of Pokemon? I truly hope that whatever this new game is, the creators go all out and delve into themes that they would otherwise not under normal circumstances. I mean, with all this heightened attention Pokemon is receiving, you should make sure to attract new customers by making one hell of a game! Maybe this has an alternate timeline and focuses on the Pokemon world falling apart due to a heinous and villainous team’s plan actually succeeding! Who knows! With everything up in the air, I wouldn’t be surprised by what Trollfreak conjures up next.

  10. eh. I like Magiana better. Still the name is fine. Im just going to wait for e3 to see what will be announced.

  11. I just looked back through some information and saw that Victini was the first Gen 5 Mythical Pokemon to be revealed. That was in July 2010. It was being distributed during the first month of the game being released. Is it possible that the same will happen with Magearna, since it was the first to be revealed? I know the chances are slim, but that could happen as soon as this year to promote the movie. Victini did appear in Pokemon the Movie: Black and White. I can’t help but feel that the Mythical Pokemon classification is important here (besides it being event-only, of course).

  12. Pronunciation? Mah-jee-yar-nah or Mah-geer-nah? I personally don’t like hearing the word “gear” in it’s name. It’s not very fitting imo. .-.

  13. Maybe this one is going to be clockwork if you look at the bottom you can see that its going to seal itself and make a ball (obvious) but what about the shield which is in the belt it looks similar to the shield that team plasma used!

  14. That name…. It’s…. Really bad…

    So, anyway. Anyone here watch Gravity Falls. Weirdmaggedon Part 3 today!

      1. Exactly my thoughts. I’ve been making that comparison ever since I heard it was ending. Yeah and Alex Hirsch said he wanted it to be a show with a proper beginning, middle and end.

  15. “Meanwhile, Cabinet Minister Jarvis from Azoth Kingdom, a city of super-machinery where gigantic cogwheels are constantly rotating, has obtained the ultimate invention he has been searching for for so many years. It was the artificial Pokémon Magearna, which was born in the kingdom 500 years ago but since went missing, as well as the unknown power called the “Soul Heart” said to reside inside Magearna. As Jarvis plots to use this power to rule the kingdom, Volcanion was attempting to retrieve Magearna, who got abducted from the Navel Plateau! “Ain’t no way I’ll ever forgive the humans!”
    Will Volcanion and Ash manage to work together and save Magearna while linked together? And what is the true power the “Soul Heart” hides? It’s time for the hottest battle in Pokémon history to begin”

    Thats more info, i wonder what this Soul Heart is real and if it will be in the real games. Maybe it will since Soul Dew was introduced in the [email protected] movie, and in the anime. And even though most things in pokemon movies are fake, this one seems to contain a lot of info. Project Azoth may have something to do artifically creating/altering pokemon and since volcanion hates humans, he might refute this idea. The soul heart could be something that gives artifical things their power. More and more i like the silicon and carbon theory.

    1. I’d b willing to bet the soul heart either gives Magearna or Volcanion the ability to change forms. It could b called something else in the games, but I’m certain it’ll b a real item when the games release.

    2. I wonder if the Soul Heart has anything to do with Diancie’s Heart Diamond, and the heart that appear on its body upon mega evolving…

    3. I’m trying to find details on the Soul Dew and evidence points to being a game item first as seen in the Southern Islands/Eon Ticket

      So this could just be a plot device so don’t get too excited

      1. That’s a good point, I bet you that the Soul Heart is an in-game item that can be recieved after obtaining Magearna via an event. Maybe it’s just a fancy name for a Mega Stone?

      2. I think thats what it is, just a plot device. The chances of it being something useful is very slim.

  16. So I’ve been thinking. IF we do end up getting a gen 6.5 it would ultimately lengthen this gen significantly I think. Unless we really don’t get any new Pokemon it would stand to reason that they’d leave it out to played for a decent amount of time. I can’t c them releasing a whole batch of new Pokemon (even just another 70) and then all of a sudden not many months later announcing gen 7. The only reason they were able to announce gen 6 so quickly after BW2 was bc those games didn’t really offer anything new other than a story. Pokemon games don’t really take all that long to complete so it made sense that they’d jump on a new gen announcement so soon after. This time however if they reveal new Pokemon I feel like they’d want us to soak in the Pokemon for a long time b4 we all of a sudden get a brand new batch of Pokemon AGAIN. If we do get a gen 6.5 I wonder how they’ll progress form there on out. Things r definitely in a a weird spot whatever we end up getting. If we get 6.5 then we possibly have a long generation as a whole to get through. If we get 7 then we essentially skip over a couple of legendaries story wise. It really makes ya think doesn’t it? lol

    1. Let’s think of it from a movie perspective. Magearna’s inclusion follows a trend in which a brand new Pokemon, foreshadowing a new generation, joins up with the final Pokemon of the current National Pokedex (Volcanion). It would be logical to assume that Gen 7 will release next year, as there are no more Kalos Pokemon to promote. I think the only question is whether Pokemon Z will be released this year to bridge the gap. There’s also the possibility that Z contains Magearna (along with other Pokemon), which I think still follows the same foreshadowing structure I talked about before. If this is the case, we’d probably see one final Kalos movie next year in 2017 and Gen 7 would finally begin in 2018.

      1. I guess that makes sense. I think one possibility that everyone keeps over looking is that Z may not b at all what we’ve come to believe. For all we kno Magearna is the gen 7 mythical and Z will just b some boring filler game that isn’t as exciting as everyone is hyping it up to b. It might still b a good game, but it seems like everyone has these amazing and fantastical ideas of what it could b. What if it isn’t at all what we think and as u said is simply suppose to fill the time between ORAS and the gen 7 games……..I hope it lives up to everyone’s expectations, but at this point I don’t think I can get excited anymore until I see proof hahaha

  17. Interesting that an artificial Pokemon created 5000 years ago have references to fashion of sooner centuries with its dress. This may refer to alternative technology that was risen during 5000 years ago, and perished away for some reason, like myths we also have for this world. Probably a steampunk world or kingdom. Also, it looks more complicated than Porygon in its design, which makes me believe that technology of 5000 years ago in Pokemon world was alternatively advanced in this way. I don’t want to use word “more” advanced, but I want to say that it was “alternatively” advanced.

      1. at first time I read it 5000 too according to hermetic(alchemy) teaching it should be more than 5000 years cuz alchemy teaching appeared in ancient egypt.

    1. It’s only been like 5 days and ur already attached to the Japanese name? hahaha They’re basically the same. The Japanese name basically just leave the R out of the pronunciation lol

    2. Right? I still refer to some of the Gen 5 pokemon by their Japanese names because I was exposed to them first 😛

    1. At this point, I seriously think the image is reaching quite a bit. Diancie would be Generation 7 if you counted all of the gems on her head. Plus, why only Diancie? Why not Hoopa. I believe that it is just an odd coincidence, yet neat nonetheless.

      1. These are all of the rare Mythical “Fairy” Pokemon from each generation, so they all have similarities. I just thought this was an interesting idea, and it could be true.

    2. All these “make” the roman numerals with their body shape, and Magearna doesn’t make the roman numeral, it just has 7 sides. I claim this false!

    3. Definitely reaching, but I like it. Honestly though, it’s probably more one of those “I’m looking for connections and there it is” type things.

    1. I forgot to mention this here, but it’s a very interesting coincidence. I happen to be doing vectors in Pre-Calculus right now and the variables “i” and “j” are used a lot. Vectors go along perfectly with the axis theme of X and Y (which was confirmed by Game Freak themselves, by the way). Another instance of this leak being extremely well put together, assuming it wasn’t taken directly from an official source.

  18. Here’s a blast from the past. HGSS are some of the best games in the series thus far (but that may be my love for Johto talking).

    1. Pokemon Sunday was the shit. They gave us news about HeartGold & SoulSilver and Black & White. They will be remembered as they fueled my childhood and Pokemon hype!

  19. Generation 6.5, if it turns out to be true could very well wrap up the Pokemon sagas before “it” into a neat package before going into generation 7 because currently, the amount of confusion with all these loose ended information is quite immense. Masuda did say, as many of you pointed out, that generation 7 will focus on the founding foundations of Pokemon and simplicity so, what better way to cap off Pokemon before transitioning into a new, simpler form of Pokemon than to release one hell of a game, wrap everything up into a neat little package and say adieu. Pokemon Z or AZ, whichever one takes on fruition should explain the Pokemon timeline better so as to not confuse everyone or maybe it’ll add onto the confusion and Pokemon becomes a Zelda-esque game with its intervening time lines and plot structures. This is an exciting time for Pokemon fans everywhere with the 20th anniversary approaching, Pokken Tournament, possible new games, Magearna, and much more! Pokemon will probably tighten its reigns on the Japanese market and utilize nostalgia to make this one hell of a year for fans worldwide!

    1. I’ve been herring this gen 7 simplicity stuff but I don’t recall seeing anything about it. Could somebody send me a link?

        1. oh man this very old ….but I think pkmn should be simple in masses not hall design in addition we r in very different age but I think Mr.Sugimori mean Abstraction art.

  20. I actually really like the designs for the two new characters the cabinet person thing and that woman… 😀

  21. What if Pokemon AZ basically retells the beginning of the Kalos region to its end and you have to change the morbid ending… Haha!

  22. I;ms sad that they didn’t release a new trailer along with Magearna. Even if it didn’t reveal anything really new it would have been interesting to c how it move and looks in the movie.

  23. My friend and I each got a single Mew today. I intended to get 4, of course, but the guy at the register was unnecessarily passive-aggressive and handed one to everybody who asked for them. My usual GameStop with nicer people didn’t have them in stock, unfortunately.

    1. Darn, I hated how they only gave me one, as well. Just try going again another day, or get somebody else to go in for you. Going in on a different day, the lady gave me the last 3 i needed

  24. I teared up at the end of Gravity Falls. Some people might think I’m dumb, or a nerd for doing this, but I’ve grown very attached to the characters and the show because I’ve been watching it since the very beginning

  25. I am holding out hope for a Nintendo Direct this week. The chances are seeming pretty slim but you never know.

    1. I’d bet more so next week than this week. Maybe an announcement for a direct next week. The next time we could possibly hear anything is around the 27th. It doesn’t have to b on the date, but near enough to it as that’s when people are gonna pay more attention.

      1. Are you talking about a Pokemon game announcement? If so, I think it’s possible that a Nintendo Direct before the 27th could announce a “Pokemon Day Direct” or something like that.

        1. I was talking about the game announcement bc I thought that’s what u meant…….lol Anyway I’m not sure about a general Direct either at this point. Maybe next week, but I feel like we’ll get word of one coming b4 they just spring one on us.

  26. Okay, But why hasn’t Eternal Flower Floette been announced yet?
    If GF is waiting for The next games then why was it in XY’s data?

    1. I do like the gear stack design but given the current structure (does anatomy even apply to robots?) it appears to have something keeping those pin like legs attached
      But I speculate that under the hood is a whole mass of virtually everything it needs to function

  27. The secret to magiana is probably the same as the answer the eternal question of what is inside a pokeball

    1. Well there are some theories
      It is said to re-create a suitable and pleasing environment for which they can recuperate and enjoy themselves (as to not go stir crazy if in prolonged Stasis) though it is not entirely sure if it simulates a natural habitat hologram as seen in this image of Dragoniteé_Ball.png
      But keeping in mind the Pokeball does convert the Pokemon in capture into a special energy wavelength which could continuously circulate through the machinery within the Pokeball’s capture system
      But some others states that Pokemon can still actively struggle free as stated my Lucian that They instinctively curl up to try and defend themselves to heal while captured and then the Pokeball seals and marks the Pokemon to their Trainer ID

  28. “Tsunekazu Ishihara, head of the Pokémon Company, says that the Pokemon GG will rollout in Japan, Europe and North America first and then later launch in South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. No date has been revealed as of yet. In this interview, Mr. Ishihara also stated that they are working on another big project away from Pokémon GO.” (Serebii)

    This is annoying. Stop teasing another “big project” and just bloody tell us!
