Pokemon has officially revealed Galarian Ponyta! As posted earlier, it’s exclusive to Pokemon Shield.
Galarian Ponyta have been found in a certain forest of the Galar region since ancient times. It is said that they were exposed to the overflowing life energy of the forest over many generations, and therefore their appearance became unique in this region.
Galarian Ponyta can absorb the life energy of the surrounding atmosphere and store it in its mane. Its mane will become more colorful, and even emit a sparkling glow, if there is an abundance of energy around.
After years of exposure to the unique forests found in the Galar region, Galarian Ponyta cannot be blighted by the effects of poison and can turn the tides of battle by curing a poisoned ally. Galarian Ponyta’s Ability, Pastel Veil, is a new Ability introduced in these titles. This Ability prevents the Pokémon and its allies from becoming poisoned. It can even cure the poisoned status condition of its allies when this Pokémon enters the battlefield.
We still don’t know why one of the Ponyta in the livestream was missing a tail.
