Ponyta (Japanese: ポニータ Ponyta) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Rapidash starting at level 40.

In Galar, Ponyta has a Psychic-type regional form. It evolves into Galarian Rapidash starting at level 40.

Biology

Ponyta is an equine Pokémon with cream-colored fur. It has brown eyes and triangular ears with reddish interiors. Yellow and reddish-orange flames make up its mane and tail. The mane forms a short crest on top of its head and a short strip down its back to its tail. Additional flames are present behind its elbows and knees. The fire appears about an hour after hatching. It has four long legs, each ending in a single, gray hoof. These hooves are said to be ten times harder than diamonds and act as shock absorbers.

Ponyta are relatively lightweight for their size, as they have extraordinary jumping abilities and are capable of leaping tall buildings in a single bound. However, a newborn Ponyta is a weak runner and is actually barely able to stand. It gradually strengthens its legs and becomes faster by chasing after its parents and jumping over grass that grows taller by the day. In the anime, it is shown that Ponyta can control its flames so that its rider is not burned by them, and Ponyta only does this for those that it has accepted. Ponyta herds tend to live in grasslands, plains, mountains, or anywhere that they can run freely.

Forms

Ponyta has a regional form: Galarian Ponyta.

Ponyta has adapted in the forests of the Galar region, after generations of being exposed to the life energy found within.[1] Galarian Ponyta has chalk-white fur covering most of its body. Instead of flames, its mane, tail and fetlocks are covered in a long, purple-and-blue, fluffy fur. Its eyes are purple with light-blue irises, and it has a small purple-and-white horn on top of its forehead.

Galarian Ponyta can absorb the life energy located in the atmosphere and store it in its mane, which will then become more colorful and potentially release a shining glow if there is a lot of energy to use.[1] Galarian Ponyta's horn has healing powers; it can heal any slight wound with a few rubs from its horn. By looking into the eyes of a person, Galarian Ponyta can read the contents of their heart. Should it find any evil, it will promptly go into hiding. As shown in the anime, Galarian Ponyta can send pleas for help in the form of visions to people, even if they're from another region.

Galarian Ponyta and its evolution are the only known Pokémon that can have Pastel Veil as an Ability.

Trivia

Origin

Ponyta and its evolved form may be based on fiery steeds in mythology, such as those belonging to the Greek god Helios, Skinfaxi of Norse mythology, or the horses of the Ashvins in Hindu mythology. It may also be based on Qilin, a legendary Chinese hooved chimerical creature sometimes depicted with parts of their bodies on fire. The fire in its Shiny coloration refers to blue fire, which generally indicates a higher temperature than orange fire but may also be caused by certain chemicals burning at a normal temperature.

Galarian Ponyta may be based on a Shetland pony and modern depictions of a unicorn. The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland, which is the inspiration for the Crown Tundra, as well as being part of the United Kingdom, the country that Galar is based on. Its signature Ability, Pastel Veil, may be inspired by the belief that unicorn horns can be used to cure diseases and neutralize poisons.

Name origin

Ponyta may be a combination of pony and bonita (pretty in various Iberian languages).
