Magearna is an event-only Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Sun and Moon. This page shows you how to add it to your game!

NOTE: You’ll have to complete the main story before you can pick Magearna up! Thankfully the QR code does not have an expiration date, so no rush!

This special Steel– and Fairy-type Pokemon is caught by a different method than any other Event Pokemon, the first of its kind with others to most likely follow suit. To get Magearna, you’ll have to scan a QR Code released on Pokemon.com! You can find it below:

North America Europe/Australia

Because Magearna is obtainable via QR Code, there doesn’t seem to be a time limit on when to get it. If you have the QR Code, you should be able to get Magearna.

EditMagearna

Location Event Date
Worldwide December 5th, 2016 – Never ends

Simply open the QR Scanner from the menu in Pokemon Sun and Moon (after already starting your game!)  and point the camera at the QR Code you want to scan. Hold the R trigger to capture the code. Then, you’ll be able to add Magearna to your team by visiting the antique shop at the Hau’oli City shopping mall, accessible after you defeat your first Grand Trial!

This Pokemon’s Ability increases its Sp. Attack by one stage every time a Pokemon on the battlefield faints, making Magearna an incredibly powerful Pokemon in Double Battles. Unfortunately, the Legendary can’t be used in the 2017 VGC World Championship Series challenges or online competitions. However, Magearna does come with a very rare gift: A Bottle Cap, which is used for Hyper Training! With this Bottle Cap, you can max one of your Pokemon’s stats as long as it’s Level 100.
