Ponyta and its evolved form are based on fiery steeds in mythology, such as those belonging to the Greek god {{wp|Helios}}, {{wp|Skinfaxi and Hrímfaxi|Skinfaxi}} of {{wp|Norse mythology}}, or the horses of the {{wp|Ashvins}} in {{wp|Hindu mythology}}. The fire in its {{Shiny}} coloration refers to blue {{wp|fire}}, which generally indicates a higher temperature than orange fire but may also be caused by certain chemicals burning at a normal temperature.
Galarian Ponyta ismay likelybe based on a {{wp|unicorn}}, given the [[category]] "unique horn" (a pun). It may also be based on the {{wp|kelpie}} of Scottish folklore.
