The Pokémon Company International and Game Freak have confirmed that Galarian Ponyta will appear as a Pokémon Shield version exclusive.
After it was revealed to close last week’s special 24-hour Pokémon Live Camera livestream – which had let viewers observe Glimwood Tangle, a strange forest located deep within the Galar region – Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has run an article on the new Pokédex addition in this week’s issue.
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.
