Up until now, Magearna never had a Shiny color scheme, but Pokemon Home finally gave it one.


It's completely grey, lacking the gold, white, and blue highlights that a regular Magearna has.

Just like Lillie's Magearna.



Guess this makes Lillie the second main character to own a Shiny, the first since Ash's Noctowl

Nonetheless do we officially count it as a shiny mon?

But given that it was meant to be a gift for her, doesn’t it technically belong to her?
It’s her Pokémon just as much as Togepi was Kasumi’s, heck even Iris’s Kibago was never shown to have a ball, same with Magearna. It’s her Pokémon and her father meant it as hers and it mirrors Gladion’s Zoroaster. It’s most likely not going anywhere either.

She's never claimed ownership of it, unlike Misty did with Togepi, Iris did with Axew, or Gladion did with Zoroark.

I'm confused as to why they gave a shiny to Magearna now (Serebii says it being a Pokedex Completion gift is a mistake) and I'm not sure if this resolves the plot holes caused if SM116 and M19 are both canon. But it's nice that they got inspiration from the anime for a shiny design, and also...Congratulations to Mohn for finding it, I guess.

I'm 99% sure Force Fire has agreed to it being Shiny. I'm just waiting for a verification to be 100% sure.

Eh, I'd care a lot more if Lillie was still around but I have no expectations of seeing her return even when Ash goes back to visit Alola so it's like whatever.
