Type – Steel/Fairy

Ability – Soul-Heart

Magearna has a unique ability called Soul-Heart. Based on the trailer, Soul-Heart activates when one of Magearna’s allied Pokemon faints beside her. Successful activation of Soul-Heart will increase Magearna’s Special Attack. It’s worth mentioning that the ability appears to only be useful in double or triple battles. Alongside her exclusive ability is an equally exclusive move: Fleur Cannon. Not much can be concluded about the move, but knowing of its existence is a step forward.

Third, a new 4-player free-for-all mode known as Battle Royal was also revealed.

While the mode will most likely not be played competitively, it can be an enjoyable experience for multiple friends to engage in.

Be sure to watch the trailer for yourself to see the new Pokemon and game mode in actions:
