Post New Pokémon Leaked in CoroCoro: Magearna

A new Pokémon has been leaked in the latest issue of CoroCoro. The character's name is Magearna (in Japanese, マギアナ Magiana) and appears to represent a robot. Its species name is the "Manmade Pokémon." As detailed in the article, Magiana will be featured in the next Pokémon movie, along with Volcanion.



Whether Magearna represents the first sneak peek of Generation VII or a hint towards a future entry of Generation VI is unknown.

Personally, I'm betting this is the first Pokémon of Generation VII, similar to previous Pokémon being announced long before the next generation (particularly with Generation IV).

I really don't even want to think about Gen VII yet . . . actually, here's another thing that really makes me think of Diancie/Carbink, for some reason. Given the power creep that's been going on recently, it's probably an Arceus-level evolution of Diancie or something.

Yeah, I'm thinking we might get a third "Z" version or similar first, but think about how the movies often featured a Pokémon early. I remember Munchlax being announced ridiculously early compared to when Generation IV came out.

I'm getting a steampunk vibe from this one, with all the gears and such.

If you go back on and X and Y, that hiker does mention about a town he knows of. You'll know in due time he says, i bet we might get like a mini region or something similar like the sevi islands?

Also, you get that strange totem from him after seeing him after a bit.

I'm usually not a fan of this type of robotic stuff and I'm honestly not liking the look of this but I'll wait and see what direction they take it. It has potential

Hmm, anyone here familiar with Italian? "Magiana" (Japanese version of the name) looks TANTALIZINGLY similar to Italian, but it's not exactly any word I know (or Google Translate knows) so it's otherwise not much of an observation. Gen 7 going to take place in Venice or something?

I can bring up the "mage" part of it: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/magus#Latin

Perhaps "gear" too, as its head is a gear.
