"Little can stand up to its psycho cut. Unleashed from this Pokémon's horn, the move will punch a hole right through a thick metal sheet. Brave and prideful, this Pokémon dashes airily through the forest, its steps aided by the psychic power stored in the fur on its fetlocks."
"This Pokémon can be seen galloping through fields at speeds of up to 150 mph, its fiery mane fluttering in the wind. The fastest runner becomes the leader, and it decides the herd's pace and direction of travel."
Ponyta first appeared in B2W2-031 when she was caught in Undella Town by Lexi after it accidentally interrupted Cheren and Bianca's battle. Lexi had always wanted to capture a Ponyta, and so she did so. She was used in Lexi's battles against Drayden and Marlon, even though she was only on the team for a brief time beforehand. Ponyta was shown to be very strong almost instantly, and continued to grow stronger as time progressed. She was then used at the Unova League against Shauntal in B2W2-050.
In the Gallant Fate series, Ponyta returned to the team when Hayley opened a new ranch in Galar. Once their, Ponyta escaped after seemingly having visions, and left to find Lexi. When she found her finally, she transformed into a Psychic-type. Lexi kept her on her team due to the changes and to use Ponyta to help her in her quest to help Zacian and Zamazenta.
Ponyta evolved into Rapidash during Lexi's Gym Battle with Gordie, in which she overcame her struggles with her new found Psychic powers.
Rapidash is an adventurous and independent Pokémon that likes to train alone and spends a lot of time running around. She's extremely focused even when not in battle, always cautious of her surroundings. She does however let her guard down at times, often likes to relax by watching the sunset with other Pokémon.
Rapidash has developed her horn to wield her Psychic powers, using it for a variety of telekinetic and telepathic abilities.
