I got two questions for you. Number one: Do you have either Pokemon Sun or Pokemon Moon? If so, you're off to the perfect start! Number two: Have you completed the main story? If you answered yes, then you qualify for a new QR code promotion that will allow you to claim Magearna, a mythical mon that has the power to perceive emotions, thoughts and feelings of other #Pokemon. Quite the legend—though not technicaly...

Additionally, you can get another new Pokemon for free this month if you have either Pokemon X/Y or Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby! As part of the 20-year anniversary celebration, a mythical Pokemon has been given away every month since February. This month, that Pokemon is Meloetta, a charming, singing and dancing delight.

It's pretty easy to claim Magearna. Well, I say that, but you need to have had completed the main story in #PokemonSunMoon first. But once that's out of the way, all you have to do is choose the QR scanner function and line up the QR code below while pressing the R button.

After having scanned the code, you must then go to the delivery man at the Antiquities of the Ages shop in Hau'oli City who will give you Magearna. Also, you don't have to worry if you've yet to complete the game as it looks like the Magearna code is here to stay. Meloetta on the other hand...

Meloetta is actually much easier, as long as you have Pokemon X/Y or Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby. All you have to do is accept Game Freak's gift via Internet in the menu options of your game. After you've been handed the delightful bundle, you must then go to speak to the delivery girl in any Pokemon center—make sure to save your game afterwards!

Note that this promotion is different from the previous ones as there's a time limit attached to it. Meloetta is part of the 20th anniversary celebration, so the promotion runs between December 1st and December 24th. Don't forget about her, trainers!

What Type Of Pokemon Are They?

Good question! Both Pokemon are classed as Mythical, which means that they are pretty darn rare. They are part of a group of Pokemon that are hardly ever seen by anyone in the world, and some are even so rare that people question whether they actually exist! At least we know these two do, so let's get to know them a bit better.

Magearna

This Pokemon was created by a scientist over 500 years ago, and, as I've said, it has the power to perceive the emotions, thoughts and feelings of other Pokemon. When other Pokemon are injured, Magearna will feel their pain and try anything to save them. What a sweetheart!

Its main ability is the Soul-Heart Ability, which increases its own Sp. Atk by 1 each and every time another Pokemon around it faints.

Meloetta

Little is actually known about this Pokemon apart from its appearance and general biology. What we do know is that at some point in the past it sang and danced so that it could combat the sorrow and darkness of the world, but soon the darkness overwhelmed the Pokemon and it lost its melody along with its red shoes. Heartbreaking stuff.

Its main ability is Serene Grace, which doubles the chances that a move will have more effect.
