  • The name of the species is a reference to the gallop form of running that hoofed animals, namely horses, often perform. Its other name Rapidash is a possible mixture of the words rapid and dash.
  • The Gallop seems much more preferred for transportation purposes than its counterpart Ponyta. Reasons for this are unknown, but it is possible that it is because of size difference.
