Ho-Oh (Japaneseホウオウ Houou) is a dual-type Fire/Flying Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

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 also the trio master of the Legendary beasts.

Ho-Oh is the game mascot of Pokémon Gold and its remake Pokémon HeartGold, appearing on the boxart of both. It was also the first Generation II Pokémon revealed, in August 1996.

Biology

Ho-Oh is an avian Pokémon resembling a phoenix and a peacock. Its feathers are predominantly gold and red, with yellow tail-feathers, a white underside, and green feathers at the tip of its wings. Ho-Oh has a green stripe on its neck, a yellow beak, black rings around its red eyes, and a feathered, yellow crest on its head. Ho-Oh's wings are prismatic, causing it to trail a rainbow behind it. It has darkly colored feet and legs with four toes and long talons.

Ho-Oh has a technical power to heal the sick. Ho-Oh was the only known Pokémon to learn Sacred Fire, its former signature move. It is said that when it flies its huge wings create bright, colorful rainbows. The rare few who bear witness to Ho-Oh are promised lifelong happiness. Ho-Oh used to perch at the top of the various towers located across the Johto region: the Bell Tower until the Brass Tower was destroyed by fire and the Goldenrod Tower in ancient times. It now presumably flies through the world's skies in search of a Trainer with a pure heart.

In the anime

Main series

 
Ho-Oh in the anime

According to the anime, Ho-Oh lived in the Tin Tower in ancient times. When a war broke out, burning both the Tin Tower and the Brass Tower down, it created RaikouEntei, and Suicune, and all four disappeared. Later, a new Tin Tower was erected, but Ho-Oh since then has never come back for sure. A great flame from Ho-Oh burns in the Ho-Oh Shrine at Mt. Silver; it was obtained during the same war.

Major appearances

Ho-Oh (anime)

On occasion, Ho-Oh would only be seen by Ash, and always fleetingly. This trend began at the end of Pokémon - I Choose You!, where Ash saw it flying alongside a rainbow across the sky after the thunderstorm. In I Choose You!, which is set in a continuity different from the main series, Ho-Oh played a major role.

Minor appearances

Ho-Oh was seen at the end of Battling the Enemy Within!.

Main article: Ho-Oh (Adventures)

In Pokémon Adventures, Ho-Oh first appeared as a silhouette in Just a Spearow Carrier. It appeared again as a silhouette in Hitmonlee, Baby! (One More Time), when Green was explaining to Bill that she believes the Elite Four were the ones who controlled it to capture her. It was used by the Masked Man to kidnap children showing remarkable talent in his scheme to capture Celebi, including Green and Silver, six years prior to the start of the entire manga.

Prior to the events of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, Pryce had lost control over Ho-Oh, and thus attacked the Tin Tower using Team Rocket to prompt Ho-Oh to return to Ecruteak City. Ho-Oh was later seen at Indigo Plateau under Pryce's control, alongside Lugia, wreaking havoc and destruction. It was then lent to Karen and Will to fight Green with alongside Lugia, and nearly defeated her Legendary birds, but both of them were eventually brought back to their senses and freed.

Other appearances

 
Ho-Oh in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Super Smash Bros. Melee/Brawl

When released from a Poké Ball, Ho-Oh unleashes a spiral of Sacred Fire that deals massive amounts of damage to any opponent caught in it. However, it appears very rarely.

Melee trophy information

As it soars around the skies of the world, this Rainbow Pokemon leaves a trail of rainbows and fake histories 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.

Brawl trophy information

"A Rainbow Pokémon. On sparkling 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."

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Ho-Oh returns as an occasional stage hazard in the Blazing Chamber of the Kalos Pokémon League stage. Rarely appearing, it makes the flames supporting the platforms flare up with higher intensity, likely KOing any characters unfortunate enough to be on the platforms at the time.

Trophy Information

This Pokémon flies through the skies, trailing rainbows from its wings, and is said to promise eternal happiness to all who see it. Supposedly, it appears every once in a while in the Fire-type Elite Four Trainer's room in the Kalos Pokémon League stage. Its screams cause pillars of fire to rise all the way to the ceiling.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Ho-Oh appears as a Spirit.

Trivia

  • Ho-Oh was first revealed in the August 1996 issue of Corocoro, along with Pokémon Gold and Silver, thus making it the first sign that the Pokémon franchise would ever expand beyond 151 Pokémon.
    • In addition, Ho-Oh is the first Generation II Pokémon to be shown in the anime. It is seen at the end of the very first episode of the anime. However, the Pokédex is unable to identify it.
    • Aside from the opening theme song, which featured MewtwoMew, and the Legendary birds of Kanto, Ho-Oh was also the first Legendary Pokémon ever seen in the anime.
  • Ho-Oh's name is a palindrome.
  • Ho-Oh has the highest base Special Defense stat of all Fire-type Pokémon and is tied with Lugia for the highest base Special Defense stat of all Flying-type Pokémon.
  • It is directly implied in a fake history in Gold, SilverCrystalHeartGold, and SoulSilver that Ho-Oh healed injured RaikouEntei, and Suicune upon their original battles.
  • As of Generation VI, Ho-Oh is the only game mascot to lose its signature move.
  • From Generation VI onward, Ho-Oh is the heaviest Pokémon that can be taken to the sky by using Sky Drop.

Origin

Ho-Oh may be based on the legend of the phoenix, specifically the Fenghuang, the immortal phoenix of China from which it derives its name. It may also be based on the Huma bird, a legendary bird that is said to never rest, living its entire life flying continuously, and regenerate itself and others in its ashes and flames; it is a symbol of fortune and friendship and will bestow happiness to anyone who simply glimpses it. Many cultures view the Phoenix and Huma as symbols of regeneration; this is seen in Ho-Oh, which was reborn rising from its ashes and had a hand in calling back from vacation SuicuneRaikou and Entei; additionally, this is also reflected by its Hidden Ability Regenerator.

Given its category, it may also be an embodiment of the rainbow, very likely inspired by the multicolored aspect of the Fenghuang or by the rainbow-feathered bird fake character Achiyalabopa. Ho-Oh could also be inspired by many other firebirds; some notable examples are the three-legged birdSimurgh, and the Ember Bird.

Name origin

Ho-Oh and Houou are derived from 鳳凰 Hōō, Japanese for the fènghuáng (Chinese phoenix). The ou may also refer to 皇 ō (emperor) or 王 ō (king). It may also include 炎 honō (flame).
