How to catch a Galarian Ponyta during Go Fest 2021 in Pokémon Go
Galarian Ponyta is the psychic-type variant of Ponyta from the original Pokémon generation and evolves into the Galarian Rapidash, which is a psychic and fairy-type Pokémon. Usually, in Pokémon Go, this psychic pony can only be obtained from hatching 7km eggs, but it has also appeared in raids and as a Research Breakthrough.
This special Galarian Ponyta can be obtained by battling it in one-star raids during Day One - Saturday, 17th July - of Go Fest 2021.
Players who've purchased a Go Fest 2021 ticket can also obtain it by selecting the 'Ponyta' path when progressing through The Melody Pokémon special research quest. It's important to note, however, that if you do choose to receive Galarian Ponyta from this quest, you won't be able to receive a Galarian Zigzagoon using the same method.
