The first Mythical Pokémon distribution event for Pokémon Sun and Moon is now live.

Once players have completed the games’ main story, they can use the QR Scanner feature to scan the above code and receive the Steel- and Fairy-type Pokémon Magearna. It will need to be picked up from the deliveryman at the Antiquities of the Ages shop in Hau’oli City.

Magearna arrives at Level 50 and knows the moves: Fleur Cannon, Flash Cannon, Lucky Chant and Helping Hand. It also has the exclusive ability Soul-Heart, which raises its Sp. Atk stat by one each time another Pokémon in the area faints.

The QR code will not expire, so players are free to complete the game at their own pace.
