Originally announced through weekly Japanese magazine CoroCoro, The PokÃ©mon Company officially announced Magearna for the rest of the world. The new ‘Mon will be featured alongside Volcanion in the newest PokÃ©mon movie out later this year. Magearna is an Artificial PokÃ©mon that was created 500 years ago.
Does this hint at a possible new PokÃ©mon generation later this year? Very, very possible. When PokÃ©mon X/Y came out, several people data mined the game and found several creatures which are still being announced. Volcanion was found via data mining but was officially announced just last year. And with the fact that Game Freak is against DLC for the PokÃ©mon series, it’s very doubtful that Magearna will be usable in XY or Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby. Now, Game Freak has also set a precedent of announcing a new PokÃ©mon before that ‘mon’s official release. Munchlax was announced before Generation IV was unveiled and before PokÃ©mon Emerald was released.
