Magearna is now available for Pokemon Sun And Moon starting today, as its QR Code is now up!
The existence of Magearna was known to the public way before Sun And Moon was released. It was first revealed accidentally via a leak in the monthly manga magazine CoroCoro during the 10th of February earlier this year. It was officially announced on February 14, just a few days later after the leak. This makes it the first Gen VII Pokemon revealed to the general public.
How do you catch Magearna?
First of all, be forewarned that you only have until the 5th of March to obtain it! But don’t panic, as you’ll still have plenty of time to train your Pokemon and complete Pokemon Sun And Moon at least once. Also, you don’t just instantly obtain Magearna just because you have obtained its QR code. The following are the requirements on how to obtain it:
- Make sure you have finished the game once.
- Visit the official Pokemon website for the QR code.
- Select the QR scanner function.
- Align the QR code while holding the R button.
- Go to the Antiquities of the Ages shop, located in Hau’oli City, and speak to the deliveryman.
- Congratulations! You now have Magearna! Don’t forget to save your game!

Lore Summary: Created 500 years ago by an unnamed scientist. The scientist had collected life energy from other Pokemon in order to create the Soul-Heart. Its steel body is merely a vessel, as its true form is actually the Soul-Heart, the sphere located in its chest.
According to the Nintendo World Report website, Magearna would start out at level 50, and includes a Bottle Cap item for Hyper Training.
