Nintendo of Japan revealed the newest Pokémon last week in an issue of CoroCoro. The translated name of the Pokémon was Magiana, a name I have a really hard time seeing without reading something wildly inappropriate.
Nintendo of America has localized Magiana into Magearna, thank goodness, and they’ve officially unveiled the 722nd Pokémon for western audiences.
Magearna will debut in the next Pokémon flick. Here’s a chunk of the press release detailing its stats.
The newly discovered Mythical Pokémon Magearna will appear in the next Pokémon movie, expected for release later this year. Known as the Artificial Pokémon, Magearna has a metallic body and was created by humans 500 years ago.
Category: Artificial Pokémon
Weight: 177.5 lbs.
In this latest Pokémon full-length feature film, a mysterious force binds Ash to the Mythical Pokémon 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 Pokémon 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 Pokémon history is about to unfold!
When will Magearna be playable? We’re not sure.
