The Pokémon Company International and Game Freak have revealed that Galarian Ponyta has Pastel Veil, a new ability that will be introduced in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield for the first time.
This Ability prevents the Psychic-type Unique Horn Pokémon and its allies from becoming poisoned, and can even cure the poisoned status condition of its allies when this Pokémon enters the battlefield.
In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, you will choose between three starter Pokémon – Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble – before having the chance to explore the Galar region – with its idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. Challenging the Gyms in the region, you will once again look to become Champion.
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on November 15th.
