After a silhouette hint came from the cover of CoroCoro Comic’s March issue, The Pokémon Company has finally announced the newest Mythical Pokémon, Magearna, who is set to appear in the next movie later in 2016!
While there is no announcement on the type of this new Pokémon yet, we do know that it is a 500 year old human creation that stands at just over 3 feet and weighs almost 180 lbs. We’ve also gotten a brief description of it’s involvement in the new movie:
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!
It’s hard to say where this pokémon will appear in the games, though it may be our first look into the seventh generation.
