Galarian Ponyta Type Revealed, Pokemon Shield Exclusive

More information about Galarian Ponyta revealed

By Grayshadow, Posted 09 Oct 2019

Recently during a Pokemon Sword and Shield 24-hour livestream a new Galarian Ponyta was revealed. Sporting a more colorful look than its traditional Fire-type model. Now, it has been revealed that the Galarian Ponyta is a Psychic-type and exclusive to Pokemon Shield. Guess my theory that it was Fairy has been proven wrong quickly.

Meet Galarian Ponyta, a Psychic-type Pokémon that’s exclusive to Pokémon Shield! 🛡 It absorbs the life energy of the surrounding atmosphere and stores it in its mane. It seems its mane may emit a sparkling glow if there is a lot of energy around! ✨ #PokemonSwordShield pic.twitter.com/sCkgeiejZQ

The reveal comes with new images showing off the new Ponyta, who's colorful lavender and cyan hair will pulse colors when about to attack, including its horn. Galarian Ponyta also has an ability called Pastel Veil which negates poison effects, including ally Pokemon during dual battles.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to see how its evolution will look but considering how close the design the Galarian Ponyta is to the original my guess is that Rapidash will maintain its original core look. With changes to the hair color and horn.

Pokemon Sword and Shield launches for Nintendo Switch this November 15th.
