Pokemon Confirmed During the Galar Region 24-Hour Stream
24 Hour Pokemon Live Stream Screenshots
See screenshots of Pokemon from the livestream in the slideshow above!
Here’s a list of every Pokemon confirmed during the “Live Footage from the Galar Region!” live stream. We’re updating this live, but are cross-referencing with a crowdsource thread on Reddit. These Pokemon appear for just a few seconds, if you blink, you’ll miss it!
- Floofy Tail Pokemon – we have now seen both ends of the fluffy tailed Pokemon
It appeared again, but then seemed to “activate” a rainbow colored mane! As it left, it made recognizable hoof sounds. Could this be a Galarian Form Ponyta we thought we heard earlier, or something totally new?
- ??? – Only a glimpse was seen of this gray and green Pokemon. It looked as though it swam through the air to the right of this large mushroom. See the footage here.
- Ponyta (only its growl was heard – this may be a Galarian Form, and may be the rainbow-maned Pokemon listed above!)
Previously confirmed Pokemon seen or heard:
- Tiny Edelgoss or Cottonee? Look at the tiny circle floating by
