Does this idea seem at all plausible to you?

I went to sleep in hopes for waking up tomorrow, but turns out only for an hour and a half, lol. However, it seems Ponyta's cry was heard? A Fire-type Ponyta wouldn't hang out in a forest, anyway.

I just remembered the first Harry Potter movie where Voldemort had to drink a Unicorn blood in order to stay alive at a strange forest. What if Ponyta is Fairy/Ghost and lore-wise is hunted? In Poké realm, it obviously would equate either one of Zangoose-Seviper (rivalry) or Heatmor-Durant (hunter-prey) situation.

On one hand this stream is realistically mimicking a "nature cam" and the glimpses we've been seeing of a new form reveal has been really fun speculation-wise.

On the other hand....it's a nature cam. With all the space of nothing happening that that entails.

Still dig it though.

Ah, so that was why you had gone quiet! lol
Edit: I probably should have quoted @WhiteBlair so this made sense XD

Well the unicorn hunt IS a very prominent motive in Medieval tapestries and folklore (though in the Medieval version it was the horn, not the blood, people where after) I wouldn't be surprised if there's some lore to that effect.

Maybe that's how they became Fairy/Ghost types, they retreated into the glowing mushroom forest and became Fairy/Ghost types in order to blend in and escape their hunters better.

Sonia, did you pick the boring part of the forest?

Hmmm, that cry sounds familiar but I can't place it.

It is nearly 6 AM in Tokyo. If things really do amp up when Japan wakes, then that’ll be fun.

Also, looking over my last few notes, we got activity @ 11:35, 11:42, 11:57, 11:59, 12:14, 12:29, 12:41, 12:49, 12:51, 1:15 and 1:28. So there seems to be a good pattern, also, it probably did seem jam-packed on paper.

Agreed, but it would be the perfect opportunity for Game Freak to add elements from possibly what could famously define UK in-game aside football; Harry Potter.

Also, inevitably that means we need another Pokémon who would either rival or hunt Ponyta. If that is the case, I hope it's a new one and not an Alolan Marowak-Mandibuzz situation.

I don't know if I should laugh or cry because I'm holding off sleeping but all we got so far are just more lull-inducing scenes

Makes me wonder what type combination it could have if it was patterned after Voldemort in the first book... Dark/Poison? Ghost/Poison? Dark/Ghost? Ghost/Psychic?

I've been doing something else alongside the stream. There's a Grand Prix on CTR and the Final Competition for Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon to keep me busy, that and Hunting Shiny Celebi. Been too long for that. Anyways, I'm one of those who believe that mysterious pokemon that appeared once, maybe twice is a Galarian Ponyta, and the cry adds to it. It looked and moved (and trotted) like one to me.
