Buckball Season is the 18th Season 6 episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is by far the only episode where Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie are both main focuses, as it aired during both their Mane Months (on April 19 and May 17, 2019).
This episode last aired on Discovery Family on December 27, 2019.
Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy surprise everyone when they turn out to be Ponyville's best Buckball players, so Applejack and Rainbow Dash agree to coach them against Appleoosa. But when the pressure's on, and the fun goes out of the game, Ponyville's newest star athletes lose their competitive edge –- and it looks like they're about to lose the biggest Buckball game in history!
