Ho-Oh is the 250th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Fire/Flying type, and is known as the Rainbow Pokémon.

Ho-Oh has the ability Pressure. This ability forces the opposing Pokémon to use 2 PP for every attack that is used by the opposing Pokémon instead of 1 PP. A second ability can be obtained for Ho-Oh that come from the Dream World. This ability is called Regenerator, which resstores up to one-third of its maximum HP when this Pokémon is switched out of battle.

Like the majority of all Legendary Pokémon, Ho-Oh has no pre-evolved form and doesn't evolve, nor is it able to breed. It takes Ho-Oh 1,250,000 Experience Points for this Pokémon to reach Level 100.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Ho-Oh did not appear in the Generation I games despite being seen on the pilot episode of the Anime. In Gold and Silver, the Rainbow Wing is required to access the Tin Tower. It's more complicated in Crystal, however: to obatin the Rainbow Wing, you must capture Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. Then talk to a member of the Wise Trio inside Tin Tower to obtain the Rainbow Wing, which will open the way to Ho-Oh.

Ho-Oh can be obtained at Navel Rock in Emerald, FireRed and LeafGreen as part of a Nintendo Promotion.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Ho-Oh can be found at the top of the Bell Tower after obtaining the Rainbow Wing, just like in the games' Generation II counterparts.

Ho-Oh can be found in Pokémon Dream Radar, a Nintendo eShop game, if Pokémon Heart Gold is inserted into the Nintendo 3DS during gameplay. Once captured it can be transferred to Black 2 or White 2.

[edit] Spin-Off Games

Ho-Oh can be obatined in Pokémon Colosseum after completing Mt. Battle in Battle Mode after Purifying all 48 Shadow Pokémon.

Ho-Oh appears on the 40th Floor of Mt. Faraway in the first wave of Mystery Dungeon Games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, Ho-Oh appears at the 19th Floor of Mt. Mistral, but a Stone Plate or Enigma Plate is required. Ho-Oh is exclusive to Dungeon Blazing Adventure Squad in t[Mystery Dungeon 3]]; it is located at floor 50 of Legendary Volcanic Island.

Ho-Oh is absent from the first two Pokémon Ranger games. It does appear as a Boss Pokémon in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs at the West Sea Pillar.

Ho-Oh can be found at Volcanic Slope: Autumnwood 3-2 and Firebreathing Mountain: Autumnwood 3-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast, but Ho-Oh won't appear in these locations until after the game has been completed.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Ho-Oh appears in 9 different sets, two Organized Play sets and three Promotional sets. It is listed as a Rare card in all sets that it appears in: Neo Revelation (2), Skyridge (hidden), EX Unseen Forces (2), Secret Wonders, HeartGold SoulSilver (Legend), and Call of Legends, along with the Wizards Promos, a Pokémon Players Club Promo, Pokémon Organized Play Series 3 & 5, and the HeartGold SoulSilver Promo.

A "shiny" (or alternate color) Ho-Oh appeared in the pilot episode after Pikachu had fought off a flock of angry Spearow that had been chasing him and Ash. This gets featured in a flashback from time to time in the Anime, although Ho-Oh has appeared a couple of times since.
