More About Magearna
Magearna is a level 50 Steel- and Fairy-type Artificial Pokémon. Its signature Ability is Soul-Heart, and it raises its Special Attack stat whenever a Pokémon faints.
When you get Magearna, you'll see that it's holding an item called Bottle Cap, which can be used as payment to Mr. Hyper for Hyper Training.
"Magearna is a Mythical Pokémon that was created by a scientist of uncommon genius 500 years ago. Magearna has the power to perceive the emotions, thoughts, and feelings of other Pokémon. If a Pokémon is injured, Magearna will feel the other's pain and suffering and will try as hard as it can to save that Pokémon," Magearna's description reads.
