Rapidash (Japaneseギャロップ Gallop) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Ponyta starting at level 40.

Biology

Rapidash is an equine Pokémon with four slender legs and black hooves. Its body is cream-colored, and it has a horn on its forehead. It also has small red eyes and pointed ears with red insides. Red and orange flames stream from neck, part of its back, and its fetlocks. Flames also form this Pokémon's tail.

Rapidash is a very agile Pokémon. It runs at about 150 mph (240 km/h), chasing everything that moves in hopes of racing it. With incredible acceleration, it reaches its top speed in only ten steps. At full gallop, its hooves barely touch the ground. The faster Rapidash go, the longer the swaying flames of its mane will become. At an all-out gallop, its blazing mane sparkles, a feature which is said to enhance its beautiful appearance. Rapidash lives in grasslands, but it can also be seen on mountains in Pokémon Snap.

Trivia

  • In early English-language promotional material for Pokémon Red and Blue, it was revealed that Rapidash was to keep its romanized Japanese name 'Gallop'.
  • Rapidash is the favorite Pokémon of the Kanto Pokémon Fan Club Chairman. When the player first speaks to him, he goes on about why Rapidash is his favorite Pokémon at length.
  • In the in real life Pokédex that's based Ash's, Rapidash's weight was listed as 2@9, the middle symbol most closely resembling the at symbol.

Origin

Rapidash's horn shows it may have been inspired by unicorns, but it more closely resembles a regular horse. Rapidash and its pre-evolution may also be based on fiery steeds in mythology, such as those of the Greek fake HeliosSkinfaxi of Norse mythology, and the horses of the Ashvins in Hindu myth.

Name origin

Rapidash may be a combination of rapid and dash, referring to the high speed at which it runs. It could also be a combination of rapid and ash (referencing its Fire type).

Gallop is literally gallop, a form of running for hoofed animals.
