Am I the only one liking the name? It's magic (so probably psychic or fairy) plus gears (so steel) and ana (in reference to its feminine look.) I LOVE IT AND I AM TOTALLY HYPED.

I don't know if I like the English name as much as the Japanese, but it was obvious they had to have "gear" in there.

There'd probably be some form of soft 'g' as in 'magic' or 'mage' (which they apparently opted to place into its name), unless they really wished to specify that it has the word 'gear' in it now. Wonder if its ability is 'Leg-Spin.' Serena looks like they'd be pissed, they never have much luck with that, as it turns out. Maybe natural variation?

Also, look at how excited Clemont is from seeing it.
True. Poor Serena, though. She's only going to get her heart broken again.

Maybe May'd be down for slipping into this plot, though, then it could be about VineShipping pursuing AmourShipping, and perhaps relentlessly on their part.
When it dawns that Keats' idea of 'negative capability' is basically reducible to the public perception of Lucario.

Hmm... I like Magiana more, the name flows better.

Note the Poke Ball design.
Now that you mention it... Could the Pokémon be inspired by Fabergé eggs?

I liked its previous name better
Now has an avatar to commemorate the release of Crown Tundra. What? It is a Galarian Slowking! It's still an evil Slowking rite? RITE!?

I was initially was thinking it was Mage-arna to be linked to mage/magic, but then someone pointed out the breakdown of "gear" which makes more sense..

Someone says ouch. ;)

I still prefer Magi-ana... Ah well, the officials have decided already, we commoners have no say on it. Lol

It's basically the same name it has in Japan, just with a different spelling.

They probably just unified the words mage and gear in a pun. Not the first time they did that, iirc.

Goodra

Gooey+dragon also Good+dragon, the latter part is indicated by the Pokedex entry! (:

So yeah, double meaning. There are actually better examples but I couldn't recall them.

So Mage-arna or Ma-gear-na both work. (:

Game Freak, great job on hyping and creating discussions with that name, well played.

I saw someone say the name 'Magiana' looked a little like 'Mangina' and I couldn't take it seriously after that.

Magearna doesn't look bad I guess... I mean both names could be pronounced as Mah-gear-na anyway except the English version just spells it our for you.

MAGEARNA

*Type Predictions:
-Steel/Fairy (most likely) STEEL because of gears and FAIRY because pink color and because it is newest type.
-Steel/Psychic because it looks magic and mysterious.
-Pure Steel. Maybe GF will surprise us
-Steel or Fairy/Poison (less likely) . Something unique and first poison legendary.

**Name
Magearna is a decent name for me, but i absolutely loved the old name Magiana

***Design
9/10 I like the design concept. An robotic artificial bunny is pretty cool.
THIS IS FIRST ARTIFICAL 'MON I REALLY LIKE.

****My opinion
Even is not released...
-Magearna get easily in my top 3 favorite legendary (After Shaymin and Darkrai)


*****Gen 6 Expansion/Gen 7 Leak
I can"t say anything certainly but I prefer to think is a Gen7 Leak.
I'm really hyped to see new set of 'mons because I'm bored of them all :)
Since Gen 1 games have opposed names (XY/BlackWhite) so if Margeana is the Artificial Pokemon could the names of Gen 7 games be something like Pokemon Artificial/Natural (I know there are not good names )
Magearna could be the mascot of one of them & the other mascot should be a Grass (maybe a Grass/Poison or why not Fire) because Grass is the most natural thing i know.

This theory is likely to be false because I think Mascots are released togheter :)

Mah gear? Nah!

It doesn't really roll off the tongue the same way "Magiana" does in my opinion, and it doesn't feel quite as...mystical~

BUT as far as names go, I think it's serviceable.
