Unlike Mythical Pokémon events of past games, the Magearna distribution will last indefinitely, as the QR code does not expire.

However, according to the official Pokémon website, there are a few requirements players must meet before attempting to receive Magearna:

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!
