Galarian Ponyta’s unicorn-like charm made it a standout when Pokémon Sword & Shield was released last year. Now, it can step into the spotlight alongside Kanto’s Ponyta in a new merchandise collection that will be available at Japan’s Pokémon Center stores.

Forget “My Little Pony”, it’s all about HELLO PONYTA! Featuring artwork from James Turner, Art Director for Pokémon Sword & Shield, the collection features the standard Pokémon Center merch formula – plushies, notebooks, clear files, stickers, pens, plushie keychains, and iPhone cases.


Yet, we’re venturing into some new territory as well. Joining up with Sofia Coppola’s clothing line, MilkFed, a variety of clothes and accessories will star Galarian Ponyta. The best pieces from this release though are the Nintendo Switch accessories! There’s only three items – a cartridge case for 12 Nintendo Switch games and cases made for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite – yet I’d argue it’s quality versus quantity.


Available in Japan, items will be for sale online at the Pokémon Center’s store on July 16th and can be imported. Pokémon Center stores will carry the line two days after on July 18th.
