Ho-Oh is a dual-type Fire/Flying Legendary Pokémon. It is often considered to be closely related to Lugia as a duo, even sometimes as its polar opposite.
In the game "Pokémon Gold" and "Pokémon Silver", Silver represents Lugia as "guardian of the seas", and Gold represents Ho-Oh as "guardian of the skies." Besides being the mascot of Pokémon Gold, Ho-Oh is also the mascot of its remake, HeartGold.
Ho-Oh is a rainbow-colored avian Pokémon resembling a phoenix and a peacock. It's feathers are gold and red.
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).
Ho-oh was first seen in the first episode, Pokémon - I Choose You!. It was one of the first Pokémon Ash Ketchum has ever seen, but he doesn't know what it was until further on. When he announced to Professor Oak that he saw something, he pointed at Articuno; it was a thoughtless mistake. Ho-oh was mentioned many times in For Ho-Oh The Bells Toll!, though the only legendary Pokémon seen was Suicune. Ho-Oh was last seen in Gotta Catch Ya Later!.
- So far, Ho-Oh was only making cameos in movies until the movie I Choose You.
- It's the first Legendary Pokémon that appeared in the anime.
