President Ponyta was born in the tall grass of route 17 on October 15, 1996 to a father from Johto and a mother from Kanto. Growing up, he was also raised by a young human boy named Red who worked his way up from a quiet life as a child in Pallet town to become a Pokémon Master.
After working his way through gyms with the help of friendship and love, President Ponyta moved to Cinnabar Island, where he worked as an organizer to help rebuild the fire-type community.
He went on to Victory Road, where he became the first Pokémon to beat the Elite Four single-handedly. Later, he took a job teaching fire TMs at the University of Kanto. He also remained active in his community, frolicking in the fields with the mares, as any good stallion does.
Ponyta was first elected to the Cinnabar Island State Senate on October 19, 1999. During his time in there he cut taxes for working Fire-types and expanded health care at local Poké Centers. Elected to the Kanto Senate on September 7, 2004, he reached across the aisle to work with Water and Grass-types on combating the nefarious works of Team Rocket.
As President, Ponyta has dedicated himself to putting Americans back to work and restoring economic security to middle-class Pokémon. He’s been driven by the basic values that make this land great: Kanto prospers when we're all in it together, when hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded, and when everyone—from Fuchsia City to the Indigo Plateau —does their fair share and plays by the same rules.
