Ho-Oh is a dual-type Fire/Flying Legendary Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is often considered to be closely related to Lugia as a duo, even sometimes as its polar opposite.
Silver represents Lugia as "guardian of the seas", and Gold represents Ho-Oh as "guardian of the skies."
Ho-Oh is the version mascot of Pokémon Gold and its remake, HeartGold, appearing on the boxart of both.
Ho-Oh is a rainbow-colored avian Pokémon resembling a phoenix and a peacock. It's feathers are gold and red, with yellow tail feathers, a white underside, and green feathers on the top of its wings.
Its wings are prismatic, often causing it to trail a rainbow behind it. It has dark colored feet and legs with four toes and long talons.
Powers and abilities
Ho-Oh has the ability to resurrect the dead (an example being Entei, Raikou, and Suicune). It is also known for its former signature move (Sacred Fire).
- So far, Ho-Oh is the only Legendary Pokémon to not make a movie appearance (save for cameos).
- It is said that whoever sees Ho-Oh flying across the sky, will be granted eternal happiness.
