Physiology and Behaviour

Appearances

Main Pokémon games

Ho-Oh first appeared as the mascot of Pokémon Gold for the Game Boy Color, while Lugia was the mascot of the game's counterpart Pokémon Silver. Ho-Oh could actually be obtained in Pokémon Silver through special means, though by doing so the Ho-Oh caught in Silver would not know its signature move Sacred Fire (this was not the case in the game's remake, SoulSilver). Ho-Oh could also be obtained in Silver by trading. Ho-Oh would later appear as the mascot of the Nintendo DS remake of the game, Pokémon HeartGold. Ho-Oh could be caught in Pokémon SoulSilver by obtaining an item through Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The Ho-Oh caught in SoulSilver would not know the moves Fire Blast, Sunny Day, or Extrasensory, but would know its signature move Sacred Fire.

Other Pokémon games

Ho-Oh has appeared in many different Pokémon side games including Pokémon Trozei! and two Pokémon Mystery Dungeon video games. Surprisingly, Ho-Oh appeared in the first episode of the Pokémon anime at the end. Despite this, Lugia became more popular due to its primary role in a Pokémon movie.

Trophy descriptions

Super Smash Bros. Melee

"As it soars around the skies of the world, this Rainbow Pokemon leaves a trail of rainbows and myths in its wake. Its signature move is called Sacred Fire, and it is believed to appear only before trainers who are pure of heart. If you see a trainer with Ho-oh, you can assume that catching it took a lot of work."

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

"A Rainbow Pokémon. On sparking wings of seven colors, Ho-Oh leaves a rainbow behind as it flies. Legend says that Ho-Oh suppressed a war that scorched the land in ancient times. Its attack Sacred Fire can melt ice in an instant and also damage the target with burns. Ho-Oh will show its solemn figure only for the most righteous Trainers."
