As a follow up to a story that we previously posted, we now know the official details of the 722nd species to be introduced to the Pokemon world.
Magearna, the Artificial Pokemon, has been officially revealed by the Pokemon Company International on their website yesterday evening. According to TPCI and Nintendo:
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!
While Nintendo hasn’t said anything else concerning Magearna, we now know that Pokemon composer, Junichi Masuda will be at E3 2016, thus sparking speculation about the newest game in the Pokemon Universe.
The Pokemon Company International and Nintendo are also in the midst of their 20th anniversary celebration, where we will see the 11 mythical Pokemon that currently exist be distributed to the 6th Generation games (X,Y, Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire,) as well as in TCG form as well as part of the Generations set, released monthly. Along with those releases, we will be getting a re-release of Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow, along with a special New Nintendo 3DS with Red and Blue pre-installed this month, Pokken Tournament before Evo 2016, and Pokemon GO slated for a release within the year.
