Professor Willow Spotted a Colorful Pokémon: Galarian Ponyta Teased in Pokémon GO

Galarian Ponyta will be added to Pokémon GO in celebration of the Crown Tundra DLC releasing for Pokémon Sword and Shield. From Oct. 22 to Oct. 23, you'll be able to battle Galarian Ponyta in Raids. You'll also be able to evolve it into Galarian Rapidash.

Be careful when battling Galarian Ponyta, as it's not a Fire type like its normal Kantonian form or Fairy like it's My Little Pony appearance would seem. It's actually a Psychic type.

The Psychic typing draws inspiration from the mythical Unicorn's role as a healer. Much like the Unicorn of myth, Galarian Ponyta is equally as elusive. This weekend will be the only chance to get one for now.

In addition to Galarian Ponyta, you'll be able to find Galarian Farfetch'd to evolve into Sirfetch'd once again. The last time Galarian Farfetch'd was available in Pokémon GO was during the celebration event for the last DLC, The Isle of Armor.
