Sooo, Ponyta was revealed...in Corocoro lol
According to Serebii, it has an ability called Pastel Veil that prevents poison. So I think it's pretty obviously going to be part-Fairy when it evolves.
It's pure Fairy, it dropped the Fire type entirely
Surprised no one has shared the video yet
The next Pokemon needs to be a dragon referring to Saint George or the Welsh dragon..
Whoops, my mistake. But since it fires off a Psybeam in its trailer, maybe it'll be part-Psychic type as Rapidash and it'll work as an anti-Poison Fairy type.

Galarian Ponyta is pure Psychic. Pastel Veil prevents it and allies from being poisoned and heals poison from allies when entering the field.

So it's gonna fill a similar support role like A-Ninetales with Ice-types, I presume?

Looks like my answer to Galarian Ponyta's classification has been answered in the official website; when it's no longer the 'Fire' in 'Fire Horse', its classification changes altogether.
It can also have Run Away.
Truly, this is the hardest choice of abilities between essentially poison immunity and healing or ability to always run away
Oh shit, it is Psychic
Just let Run Away be able to be trap immune, cowards!
Why the hell is this thing not Fairy? Who decided "hey, let's make this Pokémon an unicorn and then give it the Psychic type"? It doesn't even look the part! Psychic/Fairy, I would have understood that, but pure Psychic really boggles my mind.
Guess it will evolve into a Psychic/Fairy but being pure psychic is pretty weird yea.
Especially when every other Pokemon showed off with it was part Fairy
the inner machinations of Gamefreak are an enigma◊
This makes the decision between Sword and Shield much harder...
Given that Alolan Raichu won't make the cut, I might pick up a Ponyta.
I still prefer Sirfetch'd to Galarian Ponyta, but I'll have to save my decision until Galarian Rapidash (and/or a possible evolution) is revealed.
Sonia also has a message for everyone:
We created a summary of the Pokémon seen in our research the other day. Good job with the Pokémon Live Camera, Rotom!
It sounds like this was the first time many people saw a Galarian Ponyta. You’ll likely discover even more Pokémon we haven’t seen yet that live in Glimwood Tangle, too, if you visit there when you explore the Galar region.
I hope you enjoyed helping out with my research!
So once again, Gamefreak is still holding cards...so we could walk into the glimwood and still run right into new pokemon. Now THATS exciting lmao.
Well, yeah, considering most of the stuff revealed up until now has been Galarian Formes of old Pokémon, I'd hope we still have stuff to discover.
I wonder if Impidimp has some Weirdness Censor going on that makes people ignore it in-story and GF is ignoring it for that reason.
And still nothing on impidimp. Did they just forget that it hasn't been formally announced?
No explanation for why we've seen some without a tail, either
Oh, right; with the now Psychic Galarian Ponyta, guess we can throw out that one leak that picked up steam off of it's existence.
It might still evolve into a fairy type. Leaks are never entirely accurate.
Speaking of which, I was rereading the Affleck leak and am now wondering what it meant by saying that SWSH would have the first Fairy Gym. Have they forgotten about XY or do they mean the first Gym will be Fairy-type?

How well does it match the trope?
