Ho-Oh is a FireFlying-typeLegendaryPokémon introduced in Generation II. It is also known as the 'Rainbow Pokémon' and is often considered to be closely related to Lugia as a duo. Ho-Oh is also the trio master of the three Legendary dogs Raikou, Entei and Suicune.

How to Obtain

You can obtain Ho-Oh by doing the following:

Talk to the NPC in white at Saffron City's PokéCenter.

He will give you a riddle/list as follows:

"Mr. Weirdo. Opera. Tongue. Supercomputer"

Which means:

"Mr. Mime. Jynx. Lickitung. Metagross."

Have these four Pokémon and an empty slot in your Party and he will give you Ho-Oh. (Possibly Shiny or Aura)

If you don't get a shiny or aura just leave the game and rejoin until you get a shiny. You can also do this to any Pokémon who is given when interacted with an NPC (or itself in Necrozma's case).

It can also be obtained from trading and the Pokemon Roulette.
