Ponyta (ポニータ) is the 77th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Fire-Type, and is known as the Fire Horse Pokémon.

Ponyta can use one of two Abilities: Run Away, which allows it to flee from any battle against Wild Pokémon unless a hindering Move or Ability is in effect; or Flash Fire, which increases the power of its Fire-Type moves by 50% should it get hit by a Fire-Type move. Its Hidden Ability is Flame Body, which has a 30% chance of afflicting an opponent that hits it with a move requiring physical contact with a Burn.

Ponyta gain the opportunity to evolve into Rapidash starting at Level 40.

Ponyta is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Ponyta One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
