A new Pokémon from the Galar Region was revealed today in the 24 hour live stream event. The Pokémon appears to be a regional variant of Ponyta with a rainbow mane and the traits of a unicorn.
I already love it.
It is still unconfirmed if this is a new Pokémon or a regional variant but there are plenty of clues pointing to it being a Galarian variant due to the fact that both the original Ponyta and this Pokémon both share the same cry.
A few other past monsters, like Swirlix, Morelull, and Phantump, were also confirmed to be in the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games.
No other new features were announced for the games but fingers crossed that more information will be coming soon as both Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield release worldwide on November 15, 2019 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
