Where To Find Ponyta In Pokemon Shield

Where To Find Ponyta In Pokemon Shield Location
You can find Ponyta in the Glimwood Tangle area, it’s very close to Ballonlea, just to the South. It’s a long grass Pokemon, so you cannot see it visually. You have to encounter random Pokemon in the grass to find Ponyta.

Warning, it’s a very low encounter rate. I was here for about 45 minutes and only saw two.

Ponyta is weak to dark moves so be very careful using abilities like Bite and Crunch. Wild Ponyta’s have very low defense, so any super effective attack is likely to kill it in a single hit. Even non Super Effective moves can kill it in one hit, use the weakest Pokemon you have. Use a weaker Pokemon with basic abilities to wear it down before throwing your Poke Balls.
