Magearna in Pokemon Sun and Moon

So I've noticed that Pokemon promos aren't really among the things I come across in my daily reading.  I love the series, Pokemon Red was the first game I ever owned.  I've played through the main series and now occasionally pick them up to finish the Pokedex on Pokemon Bank.  I thought this code for #801, Magearna was a new thing, but no, the code's been around for almost a year.  But!  I need to test some things regarding these blog posts so:

To get Magearna with very little effort as per the Pokemon Website:

  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! 

I've included the QR code below.  Happy hunting!
