Pokemon Sword and Shield: How to get Galarian Ponyta and Rapidash

Galarian Ponyta and Rapidash has become one of the most anticipated Pokémon before the release date of Sword and Shield on November 15. Galarian Ponyta is an exclusive Shield , so you can only catch one if you have that version ; otherwise, you will have to change to get one in your game.

If you are a Pokemon Shield player and you are looking to catch a Galarian Ponyta, you will find it hidden among the tall grass in Glimwood Tangle , which is just south of Ballonlea.

Glimwood Tangle is an area in Sword and Shield where Pokémon do not reproduce in the outside world , which means they will hide in the tall grass. That makes it hard to find Ponyta, but it’s there, so keep looking.

The general consensus seems to be that Ponyta will appear about 1 in 10 times in the tall grass of Glimwood Tangle. You’ll want to walk slowly through the area or it could scare the Ponyta.

The only way to get Ponyta’s Galarian evolution, Rapidash, is to evolve it : you won’t find it in nature. Ponyta will evolve to Rapidash at level 38.
