Alternate-Colored Magearna Revealed!

Poke Ball Colored MagearnaMagearna

CoroCoro Ichiban magazine has revealed a different color scheme for Magearna which more closely matches the coloring of a Poke Ball. Thanks goes to Hannes S. for the translation!

Magearna looked different 500 years ago! You are getting this confidential material exclusively in this magazine!

When Magearna was serving the Azoth Kingdom 500 years ago, it seems it had these gorgeous colors and patterns.

Isn’t it surprising it has such a different form from how it appears now? Come witness how amazing it looks in theaters!

What this will mean for the games, if anything, remains to be seen. Is this a special form? A shiny Magearna? Magearna before its paint faded away? Something just exclusive to the movie? Who knows! It’ll probably be more than just a movie-exclusive form since the coloring is helping to define its origins and present-day appearance. In the movie Magearna was created in Azoth Kingdom 500 years ago, and “Project AZOTH” is mentioned in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, so this form will probably be mentioned in the games.

Magearna looking like Diancie, its Poke Ball imagery, its Soul Heart, its ties to “AZOTH,” it being man-made, a bad guy who’s abusing Mega Evolution chasing it in the movie — there’s a lot of mystery going on with this Pokemon! Magearna will undoubtedly be a major part of Pokemon Sun and Moon — and it’ll probably have a connection to the game’s larger mysteries.

    since the only difference seems to be color scheme this will likely be shiny version in the games.

    in the movie/anime could likely be it was painted like that 500 years ago and its faded/chipped away after all those years.

    while I expected a more pokeball color scheme at some point think I prefer the regular (non red/white/yellow) version as that shade of yellow kinda clashes with the rest of the scheme.

    Wow.... I really like this new shiny form (because it will be shiny right? XD) and now Magearna seems a living Poké Ball! XDD

    I'm thinking this will most likely be the shiny color for Magearna for the video games. If not then it might be like Vivillion with different patterns.

    Starting to wonder if she's made out of a giant apricorn...

    But naw, really. I'm really hoping that this is the shiny coloration... It gives off a really nice brassy/steampunk vibe and I am digging it. As for the movie, I suppose they can always pull off a Genesect?

    Well, it may not be a shiny, could be just a 'different' forme.
    It could always be "a Magearna that traveled across time and space to get to you" (since it's described as a paint job, rather than it being shiny).

    They did give us a Spiky Ear Pichu before, which supposedly came from the past of a movie, and couldn't be traded away, in HGSS.

    Unless it's another weird case like Eternal Flower Floette I would bet it's a shiny, not a big fan of the gold and red combo though.

    I gotta agree with you.
    I can understand the novel idea of making it look like a Pokeball (which doesn't make sense timeline-wise, since using Celebi's movie as reference, during Prof Oak's younger time, which was at most 40 years ago, they were using the ancestor of Apricorn balls, as opposed to mass produced Poke Balls. Also I think in Arceus movie, they were using slave like type of stuff, not balls.).

    But the color scheme isn't that nice.
    I rather a better or cooler shiny theme ><

    Nothing has really ever made sense in the anime timeline (though admittedly they are getting better.) Ash meets a Lugia and helps it save the three elemental birds? Rad, okay. Oh what, you've met another Lugia and her child? Better check out what it is, ain't never seen one of these before.

    They could also have based the Pokeball's design around Magearna. This would mean the Foongus and Voltorb lines evolved very, very recently though, but I think in Voltorb's case that's canon.

    Well that opening scene with Magearna is creepy as heck, but it looks like it's very well animated and I am LOVING how fluid Volcanion is.

    Is it just me or is Volcanion getting a new form? Around the end of the trailor when it is facing Magearna, then it starts to glow... that usually means a form change as Shaymin and Diancie can tell us...

    Either way, this trailer got me hyped and I loved the ending theme...

    From what I saw, Magearna's "Pokeball look" is definitely a paint job but knowing Game freak , it's very likely that it'll be considered a form that doesn't do anything to the Pokemon's stats like Furfrou. And like Furfrou, Sun and Moon might have a paint shop that only works when you have Magearna and it'll allow you to change between it's normal form and it's royal form (royal form is just a name I came up for it because Magearna looks like royalty at the start of the trailer with it's red and gold colors)

    This trailer does show a bit about how the movie will go, especially with the pseudo- Mega Evolution. Does it use Magearana's Soul Heart? Or is it an entirely different thing? And since Magearana is in this movie, maybe it could have some possible connection to the Alola Region. Maybe the pseudo-Mega Evolution is linked to the Sun and Moon character's bracelet. But who knows, really?

    Its almost definitely a paint job. (so many just aesthetically a different forme in game)
    Magearna can summon real flowers from its arms (maybe a grass type move anyone?)
    Puni chan attempts to help and takes on Zygarde 10% forme.
    There was a scene that Meowth and others cried, cause the Soul Heart became empty.
    Volcanion seems to be "charging up before a new forme", when seeing that his cherished friend appears to be dead.

    It seems like,
    it all comes together in an all new Pokemon adventure!

    Sometimes, I really question why these types of movies are being made. It's one of those situations that just spout out: "Did anyone ask for these?" And this is a movie people, and the animation still looks the same as in the anime.
