With Pokémon Sun and Moon about to arrive in North America in a matter of hours, The Pokémon Company is ramping up with other media around the games. It's confirmed TV screenings for Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel, also dishing the dirt on a preview of Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon and the upcoming Magearna distribution.
Magearna will be the first 'mon distributed as a QR code, though it's worth noting that this feature is only available after clearing the story in the game. The approach with that and the movie / TV series varies per region, so below we've outlined the UK and US scenarios; regional versions of the Pokémon site will have the info you need for other countries.
- Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel to air on CITV on 19th November; check out listings for an exact time.
- A sneak peak of the first two episodes of Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon will air on CITV on 20th November.
- Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel will be shown again on Pokémon TV on 6th December, with a QR code for Magearna at the end.
- Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel to air on Disney XD 5th December, followed immediately by a sneak peak with the first two episodes of Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon.
- QR code for Magearna to be posted on Pokémon.com that same day, 5th December.
QR codes may work globally, so it's possible that everyone will be able to use the code from Pokémon.com on 5th December, we shall see.
