This summer’s animated Pokémon movie is set to star a brand new legendary Pokémon, Magearna, and the newest trailer has been released in Japan. It offers a glimpse at Volcanion and the Mechanical Magearna and demonstrates that the new Pokémon can indeed fold into a ball, as many had speculated.
One thing I’d like to draw attention to is the antagonist’s staff. It appears around 0:48 and looks like a Mega Evolution symbol BUT there is a mysterious jewel in the center which is diamond shaped. This diamond shape is also present in the Japanese logos for Pokémon Sun and Moon and is in the same place that the Mega Evolution symbol was for Pokémon X&Y. Coincidence? Or foreshadowing of a huge new game feature?
There’s also a second :30 version which I’ve included below:
Just from the trailer, this movie looks like it could be a cut above the rest.
