Live Updates: ‘Pokemon Sword & Shield’ 24-Hour Livestream — Galarian Ponyta!

Pokemon’s 24-hour livestream for Pokemon Sword & Shield has begun! The “footage” comes from Glimwood Tangle, a mysterious forest in Galar.

Updates will be posted here and on my Twitter throughout the stream:

  • 6:00 AM: Livestream started.
  • 6:05 AM: Pikachu appeared, then ran off (image #1 below).
  • 6:10 AM: A group of Morelull popped up (image #2).
  • 6:38 AM: Phantump’s cry was heard (update: and it was later seen).
  • 6:54 AM: Swirlix spotted floated through the air (image #3).
  • 6:59 AM: So far there is no pattern to when Pokemon are seen or heard. With the infrequency of appearances so far (3 seen in the past hour, 1 heard), it really does seem like the stream will go for 24 hours.
  • 7:03 AM: A gray tail was seen behind a rock, then disappeared (image #4). The tail popped up once or twice but I missed it.
  • 7:37 AM: This is so boring, make it stahppppp. Something happen!
  • 8:29 AM: Impidimp spotted! (Image #5)
  • 8:49 AM: An unknown Pokemon appeared on the right side of the screen then disappeared (image #6). It was partially obscured by the foliage.
  • 10:35 AM: Once in a while they’ve been playing a galloping sound effect. There may be some kind of horse / unicorn / Pegasus-type Pokemon to reveal.
  • 11:28 AM: Horse neighing sounds were heard.
  • 12:00 PM: Ponyta’s cry heard.
  • 12:52 PM: Shiinotic spotted (image #7).
  • 1:56 PM: Impidimp photobombed the camera (image #8). In the background, you can see a new white Pokemon. Perhaps the one with the tail earlier?
  • 4:20 PM: The white Pokemon that was behind Impidimp showed up again (images #9 and #10 below). It was accompanied by horse breathing and galloped away. Its mane can “turn on” and glow in a rainbow shine (which may cause some people to think it’s not the same Pokemon from earlier, since before it was just white and wasn’t glowing). Perhaps it’s a Galarian Ponyta that’s part-Fairy, or some new horse-esque Pokemon? /speculation It seems to be the same Pokemon that was running on the right side of the screen at 8:49 AM. If so, this probably means the whole livestream is to reveal this Pokemon. Perhaps more will pop up, though.
  • 4:29 PM: The horse galloped up close passed the camera (images #12-14 below).
  • 7:07 PM: I’m just posting to say that we’re now over half way through the stream — and I’m still watching it — but nothing of note has been revealed since my last update. I might be wrong, but I think they’re now repeating each “scene” in a different order. So maybe the rest of the stream will be repeating content and there won’t be anything else. We’ll see! I’d love to go out to celebrate my birthday and get some sleep! :p
  • 7:38 PM: Nevermind, new footage of the new Pokemon was just seen. It walked up to the camera and we got a blurred look at its face and tail (images #15-18 below).
  • 8:22 PM: The shadow of the new Pokemon was spotted (image #19 below).
  • 8:54 PM: Impidimp breathed hard on the camera right before the new Pokemon galloped by, giving us a blurred look at it (image #20).
  • 9:40 PM: The clearest look yet at the new Pokemon as it ran by the camera! Galarian Ponyta? Fairy-type?
  • 11:07 PM: The new Pokemon just walked slowly and modeled for us!
  • (I fell asleep around 5 AM because there had been nothing new for six hours. I lived through 23 hours of this stream! XD)
  • 7:00 AM updates: The Pokemon is definitely Galarian Ponyta because it was accompanied by Ponyta’s cry. We’ve heard Ponyta’s cry throughout the stream too.
  • Two of them came out to play! (First image below, or see the video in my Tweet here.) The one on the left nuzzled itself against the one on the right, causing the left one’s mane to glow. The one on the right does not have a tail (second image below), which might indicate a gender difference.
  • Toward the very end of the stream, Rapidash’s cry was heard.

    First sighting! A Pikachu frolicked by, and then dashed away as if frightened.

    Just like a real forest cam, you've gotta watch for 6 hours to see anything of value show up.
    No new pokemon yet? :(

    I think this is a wonderful idea ^^ Really a great way to showcase any new Pokemon. Phantump also floated by : )

    Just heard a cry of some kind, bird-ish? I don't want to get a certain someone's hopes up but it sounded like a pidgey to me.

    I thought it might have been Mew. I figured it's probably Pokemon that are nocturnal that we'll see/hear.

    I feel sorry for anyone who feels the need to watch this, even for the sake of journalism. This feels like it was made especially to troll Pokemon news outlets since you have to have someone watching attentively at all time, for 24 hours straight, or have them rotate out with someone else and take turns. Even being a surveillance officer is less attentive and more entertaining than this torture that people feel the need to put themselves through, especially since the games will release in a little over a month, and any new Pokemon spotted will eventually be shown and detailed in a Pokemon Direct or not at all before the games release.

    Good idea on paper but there is no way to watch this entirely, then you can play this on a different tab and just return when you hear something and you still can miss it..

    I hear something like a horse running, when I put the video there was nothing on the screen, just missed and is not even on the list, so everybody missed as well? The only pokemon I was able to catch in the stream in about two hours is Swirlix (Just floating 0 movement at all)

    What could it be cool is an actual Pokemon battle, like two pokemon face each other and trying to defend his territory I doubt it happen but who knows, a pokemon hunting his prey could be great, yeah thats not gonna happen...

    I guess that a legendary will show on at some point, probably at the end of the transmision so just when is about to full appear, the transmission end

    Gamefreak is probably sitting around laughing at all the fans who are glued to their screens watching absolutely nothing for an entire day.
