Ponyta (Japanese: ポニータ Ponyta) is a Fire-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Rapidash starting at level 40.

Biology

Physiology

Ponyta's physiology is quite similar to that of a horse. However, its mane and tail are made of yellow and reddish-orange flames rather than the usual hair. Its fur is cream all over. It has four long legs, each ending in a single, gray hoof. These hooves are said to be harder than diamonds.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Ponyta, as a {{Fire}} type, is capable of using a variety of Fire-type moves, and is one of the few Fire-type Pokémon capable of using Flame Wheel. As Ponyta’s hooves are quite hard, being ten times harder than diamonds, it is able to trample anything flat in little time. It also has extraordinary jumping abilities, and is capable of leaping tall buildings in a single bound.

Behavior

Ponyta is generally a docile Pokémon that allows humans to ride on its back occasionally. However, if angered, it may choose to burn its rider.

A newborn Ponyta is a weak runner and is actually barely able to stand, but its legs gradually become stronger and faster by chasing after its parents. An hour after its hatching, its fiery mane and tail grow out, which is said to give it an impressive appearance. Ponyta is capable of jumping extremely high, training by jumping over grass that grows longer every day. Its hooves and sturdy legs absorb the impact of a hard landing. Ponyta runs in fields and mountains all day, and it kicks back with its hind legs at any presence it senses behind it.

Habitat

Grassland

Grassland Pokémon

Ponyta live in grasslands, on plains, or anywhere that they can find plenty of grass to eat and run freely. One is likely to find them in Kanto.

Diet

Ponyta is an herbivore, mainly eating grasses, small shrubs, Berries, etc.
