These secondary missions offer rewards of all kinds and in one of them you can do nothing more and nothing less than a shiny Ponyta, so be very attentive to the following guide in which we explain all the steps to follow.
How to get the shiny Ponyta from the quest The strange Ponyta
Shiny Pokémon are very rare and special because they are the alternative versions of any Pokémon. In statistics and movements, they are exactly identical, but its color changes and it also emits some shine when it comes out of the Poké Ball. Luckily in this installment for Nintendo Switch, you can get one very easily.
Shortly after starting your adventure, you will meet Youta, one of the characters that live in Villa Jubileo, who will give you the request ” The strange Ponyta “. Your mission is to locate and catch a Ponyta that is in the Obsidian Meadow, specifically in the Herradura Meadow.
You will see the place in the northeast part of this first area, where there are a series of small lakes. Precisely around one of them, the shiny Ponyta that you have to locate will be roaming freely. In addition, it has no loss because when you are very close to its position, a cinematic will appear that will indicate the exact place where it is.
This Ponyta changes its red flames for blue ones and to make it easier for you to catch, we recommend that you throw a Poké Ball or a higher model at it when you catch it off guard, approaching its position very slowly. Once it becomes yours and you talk to Yota, he will allow you to keep it and on top of that, he will give you five Frambu Berries for fulfilling the objective.
