Ponyta

Ponyta is a Fire type Pokémon introduced in Generation 1. It is known as the Fire Horse Pokémon.

Ponyta has a Galarian form, introduced in Pokémon Sword & Shield. It is said that they were exposed to the overflowing life energy of the Glimwood Tangle forest over many generations, and this is why their appearance became unique in the Galar region.

Ponyta

Red
Blue
Its hooves are 10 times harder than diamonds. It can trample anything completely flat in little time.
Yellow Capable of jumping incredibly high. Its hooves and sturdy legs absorb the impact of a hard landing.
Gold It is a weak runner immediately after birth. It gradually becomes faster by chasing after its parents.
Silver Its hind legs, which have harder-than-diamond hooves, kick back at any presence it senses behind it.
Crystal Training by jumping over grass that grows longer every day has made it a world-class jumper.
Ruby
Sapphire
PONYTA is very weak at birth. It can barely stand up. This POKéMON becomes stronger by stumbling and falling to keep up with its parent.
FireRed Its body is light, and its legs are incredibly powerful. It can clear Ayers Rock in one leap.
LeafGreen Its hooves are ten times harder than diamond. It can trample anything completely flat in little time.
Emerald A PONYTA is very weak at birth. It can barely stand up. Its legs become stronger as it stumbles and falls while trying to keep up with its parent.
Diamond About an hour after birth, its fiery mane and tail grow out, giving it an impressive appearance.
Pearl Its legs grow strong while it chases after its parent. It runs in fields and mountains all day.

Let's Go Pikachu
Let's Go Eevee
Capable of jumping incredibly high. Its hooves and sturdy legs absorb the impact of a hard landing.
Sword It can’t run properly when it’s newly born. As it races around with others of its kind, its legs grow stronger.
Shield If you’ve been accepted by Ponyta, its burning mane is mysteriously no longer hot to the touch.
Brilliant Diamond About an hour after birth, Ponyta’s fiery mane and tail grow out, giving the Pokémon an impressive appearance.
Shining Pearl Its legs grow strong while it chases after its parents. It runs all day in fields and on mountains.
Legends: Arceus These Pokémon live in herds out in the grassland. Newborn foals lack their fiery manes, which will develop about an hour after birth.

Galarian Ponyta

Sword Its small horn hides a healing power. With a few rubs from this Pokémon’s horn, any slight wound you have will be healed.
Shield This Pokémon will look into your eyes and read the contents of your heart. If it finds evil there, it promptly hides away.
Legends: Arceus They patrol their territory in pairs. I believe the igneous rock components in the fur of this species are the result of volcanic activity in its habitat.
