Right now they're advertising Sirfetch'd as the Sword exclusive. I know that it doesn't really match Ponyta in any way, shape or form... But in the end, it doesn't have to. Still I'm hoping for a more fitting counterpart. There was a rumor with a Galarian Blitzle, but sadly that rumor was discredited when Galarian Ponyta was revealed to be Psychic instead of Fairy.So galarian ponyta's a psychic type AND shield exclusive? then I wonder which mon will be sword exclusive, galarian and psychic. I guess this is the ninetales and sandslash of the region.
Well, technically Sirfetch'd is the evolution, so it is comparable to Rapidash in this scenario.If SirFetch'd is a fighting type, then the counterpart being a psychic type makes sense. The only thing is that Ponyta will evolve, while SirFetch'd wont?
Yeah, I think GF doesn't really care at this point, despite having a corporate megatitan in their hands, they've grown bored of making these games, and it honestly shows. It's grown to the point that fan games can capture the essence of what made it great as opposed to the original creators. Some of their decisions aren't sound, like giving fire lash to Heatmor, a good move, but wasted on a pokemon with a 4X ground weakness and nonexistent defense.Sirfetch'd is a brand new evolution of an old Pokemon, whereas Galarian Ponyta is a Galarian variant. Even with Galarian Rapidash the comparison won't be there because Rapidash is already an existing evolution.
Not that I think that GF cares. lol
