And it looks like a My Little Pony.
The 24-hour Sword and Shield livestream is over and Pokémon fans can finally rest – except they can’t because it offered a glimpse at a new Pokémon and they’re losing their shit.
The stream teased the appearance of the new Pokémon with galloping sounds and snippets of footage. Then fans saw its tail:
Then it trotted across the background but was obscured by an Impidimp who walked in front of the camera. David Attenborough would have been furious.
And then, finally, the mysterious new Pokémon was revealed in all its glory – and it looks like a My Little Pony.
Just before the end of the stream, two of the things popped up on-screen – one without a tail for some reason. The pair rubbed heads, prompting one of the manes to glow. Fans now believe this is a Galarian version of Ponyta, the horse-like Pokémon, but this remains unconfirmed for now.
So there you have it. Pokémon Sword and Shield has a My Little Pony. My kids will be thrilled.
