Distributions will come in a variety of forms in Pokémon Sun and Moon, with one method being QR codes. The QR Scanner function can only be used in the game after you've cleared the story, so it's an incentive to get through the campaign.

As promised, The Pokémon Company has now distributed the first QR code; the North American Magearna code (and instructions) are below - the European equivalent is expected on 6th December.


1 - Complete the main story
2 - Choose the QR Scanner function
3 - Line up the QR code for Magearna while pressing the R Button
4 - Visit the deliveryman at the Antiquities of the Ages shop in Hau'oli City to get Magearna
5 - Be sure to save your game!

It should be noted that the QR code will work 'indefinitely', so don't fret about beating the game quickly if you've not yet done so. This one is "level 50 and comes with a Bottle Cap attached", according to Serebii.

If you're in North America and have the QR Scanner unlocked in the game, check it out and let us know what you think of this Steel- and Fairy-type in the comments.
