Pokemon GO released Limited Research quests that will allow players to catch Galarian Ponyta. With several tasks to complete during the Limited Research events, players might even run into a Shiny Pokemon.

The Limited Research event is split into two parts. After completing both stages, players will run into Galarian Ponyta twice. Players can also focus on 7 km eggs during this event, as there is a chance of hatching Galarian Ponyta from these eggs.
