New Pokémon English name revealed: Magearna

The name changes from “Magiana” to “Magearna”.

A few days ago we reported on the new Pokémon revealed within the Japanese magazine CoroCoro named Magiana in Japan, a man-made Pokémon created over 500 years ago that will feature in the next Pokémon movie. Today the official Pokémon website has revealed the official name of this Pokemon to be “Magearna“. Not much new info is offered – the below is a synopsis of the Pokémon movie it will feature in.

Meet Magearna, the latest Mythical Pokémon to be discovered! Known as the Artificial Pokémon, Magearna has a metallic body and was created by humans 500 years ago. You’ll be able to see Magearna when it appears in the next Pokémon movie, expected to come out later in 2016!

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!

Look forward to many more details about the Mythical Pokémon Magearna and the next Pokémon movie, expected later this year!
