A video was also posted to The Official Pokémon YouTube channel showcasing Galarian Ponyta. You can watch it below.

The official website gives us the following information:

Galarian Ponyta have been found in a certain forest of the Galar region since ancient times. It is said that they were exposed to the overflowing life energy of the forest over many generations, and this is why their appearance became unique in this region.

Galarian Ponyta can absorb the life energy of the surrounding atmosphere and store it in its mane. It seems that Ponyta’s mane will become more colorful, and even emit a sparkling glow, if there is a lot of energy around.

Galarian Ponyta’s Ability, Pastel Veil, is a new Ability introduced in these titles. This Ability prevents the Pokémon and its allies from becoming poisoned! It can even cure the poisoned status condition of its allies when this Pokémon enters the battlefield!

Sonia meanwhile compiled some screenshots and a quick word about Galarian Ponyta here from the livestream. More Pokémon live in Glimwood Tangle than what we’ve seen so far.
