If you stuck around to watch the entire 24 hours of the Pokémon livestream last week (if you did, we salute your dedication), you’ll have spotted a new monster set to appear in Pokémon Sword and Shield. In the office, we immediately started to call it the ‘lovely sparkly candyfloss horse’, but fans decided that it was probably a Galarian form of Ponyta instead.
As it happens, they were absolutely right (although we still prefer our name for it). A scan of the upcoming issue of Famitsu has been spotted online, showing off official artwork of Galarian Ponyta next to its regular form. It has a new ability called Pastel Bell and will be exclusive to Pokémon Shield (thanks, Serebii).
Further details will no doubt come when the Famitsu issue is properly released, but until then, at least we know that the new creature is indeed a new form of Ponyta. We can’t wait to see Galarian Rapidash, too.
We’ll make sure to update our list of all the version-exclusive Pokémon in Sword and Shield; feel free to check that over if you’re still undecided on which version to pick up.
