So with the reveal of Galarian Ponyta and the tease of Rapidash’s cry at the end of the livestream last week but no reveal, I think maybe they might be holding Rapidash back for a certain reason.

It’s going to evolve this generation. I don’t know why they wouldn’t reveal Rapidash along with Ponyta if it wasn’t. But I feel they could release another video showing Rapidash being Psychic/Fairy and a bigger version of Ponyta with the only distinct difference being more mature and longer horn.

Then show Rapidash evolving into an alicorn growing wings dropping the psychic typing and becoming Fairy/flying.

The Zigzagoon line got a galarian form and evo so I think it’s possible the Ponyta line might also. (Plus people have been asking for a Rapidash alicorn evo for years ever since gen 2.) Any thoughts? Let’s discuss!

I don't see it dropping the Psychic type honestly,

I expect galarian rapidash to be Psychic/Flying, if ponyta looks like that and isn't Fairy I don't see rapidash as fairy at all
Even the very thought of opposition will not be tolerated!

I don't see GF doing x --> x/y --> zy for typing on any Pokemon. In fact, has this ever been done?

I'm getting an ethereal vibe from G Ponyta and wouldn't be at all surprised to see a Psychic/Ghost Rapidash and/or evolution. I'm hoping they move away from the trend of "it has wings! It's a flying type!" so even if G Ponyta becomes a pegasus, alicorn, etc, it's still not necessarily flying

That’s possible also, it just looks too fairy to not become fairy type to me. But I heard since it’s a unicorn and unicorns are said to have the power to heal poisons that it couldn’t be fairy since fairy is weak to poison. But game freak doesn’t really stick with logic so I still think it’s possible it will evolve to a psychic/fairy type plus if it did, it would go with weezing being poison/fairy.

Well I don't know if it counts but Sirfetch'd becomes a pure Fighting type and loses the Flying typing from Farfetched or Alolan Marowak losing the Ground typing from Cubone and becoming Ghost/Fire etc. So I think it would be possible
What fun is there in making sense?

I'd like to point out that they've literally only shown 2 evolutions so far this gen. They're really holding back this gen.

These were the only examples I could think of as well. But no there is no 3 line evo that drops from x—>x/y—>z/y only special forms. But nincada drops its ground typing for either flying or ghost when it evolves.

Swablu>Altaria>Mega is the only scenario iirc

The over secrecy is really strange. I feel they could have found a happy medium from the over sharing of S&M to SWSH. I’m surprised we haven’t seen the starters evolve yet and we are almost a month away from release.
