Voice actor: Not Known (both English and Japanese)

Rapidash is a horse-like, quadrupedal Pokémon with black hooves and a cream-colored body. It has a horn on its forehead, reminiscent of a unicorn. It has red eyes that are proportionally smaller and different in design than those of its pre-evolution. Like Ponyta, Rapidash has various red and orange flames streaming from certain spots on its body. However, Rapidash's flames are different in shape and location on the body — the flames at the tops of Ponyta's legs have vanished and there are now flames on the ankles. Also, Rapidash's 'tail'-flame now streams from its back, and its 'mane' flame is much longer. Its height is 5'07" and weight is 209.4 lbs.

Special abilitiesEdit

They run at about 150 mph (240 km/h), chasing everything that moves in hopes of racing it. With incredible acceleration, they reach their top speed in only ten steps. At full gallop, their four hooves barely touch the ground.


Rapidash are very agile Pokémon. They can live on mountains along with Rock and other Fire Pokémon. It is possible that they live alone, rather than in groups of fellow Rapidash. They are the highest evolved form of Ponyta and are highly capable in battle. Although Rapidash only casually canter, they are very competitive Pokémon. They will chase anything that moves in hopes of racing it. The faster Rapidash go, the longer the swaying flames of their mane will become. At an all-out gallop, their blazing mane sparkles, a feature which is said to enhance their beautiful appearance.


Most Rapidash live on grassland such as fields and plains, but they can also be seen on mountains. The best place to find wild ones would be in Kanto, though some can be found in Johto, Sinnoh and Unova as well.
