Pokémon Sun and Moon Magearna QR Code – event details and how to catch the mythical Pokémon Magearna


Pokmon Sun and Moon’s Magearna QR code event is the first of Generation 7’s mythical Pokmon giveaways, and likewise the first of its kind in it’s use of the 3DS’s QR scanner feature.

It’s simple to do, and seeing as these mythical event Pokmon are so hard to come by, also a chance to get your hands on what will likely become an extremely rare Pokmon, so well worth your effort!


Magearna QR code giveaway – when and where is the event and code?


The North America Magearna QR code – see below for instructions for scanning!

Magearna has already been given away by QR code in Japan, with players receiving the code if they went to see the latest animated film, Volcanion and the Ingenious Magearna, earlier this year.

For North America and Europe, the Magearna giveaway starts December 5th 2016, and unlike other mythical giveaways recently, will run indefinitely thanks to the infinite availablity of QR codes. This runs contrary to the original word from the Pokmon Company that the distribution would end in March 2017.


The European Magearna QR code – instructions below!

The North American QR code is now live, which you can see to the right as the first, upper image – note that this is region locked and so will only work for those with a North American system.

After some delay, the European QR code for Magearna is now live too.

Players are invited to watch the same movie as those in Japan, Volcanion and the Ingenious Magearna, albeit this time for free on the Pokmon TV site.

The code for acquiring Magearna is displayed right at the very end, which you can skip to. Seeing as the film as free and skippable, for ease of use we’ve included it here on the right, as the lower of the two images.
