===Generation VII===
FiveThree Mythical Pokémon were introduced in [[Generation VII]].
{{p|Magearna}} is a {{2t|Steel|Fairy}}-type Mythical Pokémon. It was made by humans 500 years ago as a gift to the royal family of an unidentified kingdom, decorated in lavish red and gold paint that wore away over time. Its body is entirely metallic and contains tricky machinery and a secret hidden inside. Its core, known as a Soul-Heart, is its true body.
It was first revealed in the March 2016 issue of CoroCoro. It is available via [[List of QR Code in-game event Pokémon in Generation VII#QR Code Magearna|QR code distribution]] for [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]] and [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon]].
{{p|Zeraora}} is an {{type|Electric}} Mythical Pokémon introduced in {{g|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon}}. Zeraora can channel a powerful magnetic field trough the electric currents located in its paw-pads. The magnetic field allows it to levitate and fly through the sky and travel as fast as a lightning strike. An aspect of Zeraora's biology that is notably different than that of nearly every other Electric-type Pokémon is its lack of an electricity-generating organ - in order to wield it, Zeraora must absorb electricity from outside sources.
It was revealed on April 8, 2018.
{{p|Meltan}} is a {{type|Steel}} Mythical Pokémon introduced in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]]. It first appeared in Pokémon GO on September 21, 2018, by way of large numbers of {{p|Ditto}} disguised as Meltan. Meltan's identity was revealed on September 25, 2018. On October 24, 2018, it was revealed that Meltan can [[evolution|evolve]] into another Steel-type Mythical Pokémon, {{p|Melmetal}}.
Meltan is known be curious and expressive, and stands out amongst other Mythical Pokémon in terms of population as dozens, if not hundreds, of specimens are known to exist. It is instinctively drawn to metal that it could absorb, as well as other Meltan, in order to combine and form Melmetal. Melmetal was worshiped in ancient times for creating metal.
** {{p|Manaphy}} is the only Mythical Pokémon that can breed; as such, it is also the only Mythical Pokémon that is not a member of the {{egg3|Undiscovered}}.
** {{p|Meloetta}} is the only Mythical Pokémon that has appeared in the anime to not have a starring role in a movie.
** {{p|Meltan}} and {{p|Melmetal}} are the only Mythical Pokémon that are part of an evolutionary line.
* Despite the first Mythical Pokémon, Mew, being added to the original games right before release, the concept of "illusory monsters" (Mythical Monsters) already existed in [[Satoshi Tajiri]]'s pitch for [[Capsule Monsters]]. They were said to be hard to encounter, hard to catch or be impossible to catch if the player missed their chance. For example, there would be a "Green Dragon" that could only be found rarely in a specific area of a dungeon, and it would have taken around 2 hours to find and catch.<ref name="ref1">[ GlitterBerri's Game Translations » Early Concept Art]</ref>
* There are no Mythical Pokémon with [[Ability#Hidden Abilities|Hidden Abilities]].
