PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Back story, availability? Is it a separate Pokémon to the grey form? I haven't seen any relevant anime.

It was supposed to resemble a pokeball, and then it rusted? idk, thats my guess.

The backstory is all in the movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel. Though I don't remember much of the movie now, I'll tell you what I do know:
Magearna was made by an inventor as a gift to a princess. At that time, centuries ago, Magearna was painted like a pokeball, it's Original Form. Over time, the paint wore off Magearna, revealing the metal underneath.
So, basically, regular Magearna is just Original Color Magearna with no paint.

Magearna has two different appearances, one standard and one with its original colour from centuries ago. There's no way to change between them
