The Pokemon Company recently aired a 24-hour long livestream for Pokemon Sword and Shield, and though it was mostly a pretty uneventful affair, we did some glimpses at some interesting stuff. For instance, fans spotted what looked like a cross between a horse and a unicorn during a stream, which, according to the upcoming issue of Famitsu (via Serebii) is the Galarian form of Gen-1 Fire-Type Pokemon Ponyta.

There’s no telling yet what Type the Galarian Ponyta is going to be, but we do know that it has an Ability called Pastel Veil. Pastel Veil makes Ponyta immune to Poison moves, and also heals any ally Pokemon of Poison when they switch with Ponyta in battle. Interestingly enough, Ponyta will also be exclusive to Pokemon ShieldPokemon Sword fans get Sirfetch’d though, so I guess it evens out.

Ponyta is the fourth Pokemon to receive a Galarian form for the upcoming Pokemon Sword and Shield, following Weezing, Zigzagoon, and Linoone.

Pokemon Sword and Shield are out on November 15 for the Nintendo Switch.
