What is Ho-Oh in Pokemon Go?
Ho-Oh is a Legendary Pokemon. As a guardian of the sky, it is the opposite of Lugia, guardian of the seas and leader of the Legendary Beasts – Pokemon Go calls them "Legendary Dogs" – of Generation 2 . A combination of fire and flight Pokemon Lugia resembles Moltres, but has its own myth and import.
Here is the official description of Pokemon :
Ho-Oh’s feathers glow in seven colors, depending on how the light hits them. These feathers are said to bring good luck to the bearers. This Pokemon is said to live at the foot of a rainbow.
Ho-Oh is a bird Pokemon that resembles a phoenix and a peacock. Its feathers are mostly 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, which causes him to drag a rainbow behind him. It has dark-colored feet and legs with four toes and long claws.
Ho-Oh has a mythical power to resurrect the dead. Ho-Oh was the only known Pokemon to learn Sacred Fire, its former signature move. It is said that its giant wings create bright, colorful rainbows when it flies. The few who witness Ho-Oh are promised eternal happiness. Ho-Oh squatted at the top of the bell tower until the brass tower was destroyed by fire. In search of a trainer with a pure heart, he’s probably now flying through the skies of the world.
How to defeat the legendary Ho-Oh Raid boss in Pokemon Go?
Since Ho-Oh is a flight and fire Pokemon, its weaknesses will be familiar to anyone who has fought Glurak or Moltres in Legendary Raids, but its strengths are all new – thanks to its various movesets, including Solar Beam.
So Golem and Tyranitar with Stone Edge will still serve you well. Unless Ho-Oh has Solar Beam. Then Raikou and Zapdos should be your port of call. If you need to complete your squad, hit Dragonite and Vaporeon (no Solar Beam) or

How to catch the legendary Ho-Oh raid boss in Pokemon Go?
Legendary raid bosses are really hard to catch and Ho-Oh, like Lugia, should be one of the hardest to catch. But here’s the thing. Ho-Oh doesn’t do a backflip like Lugia does. It is alsoYes reallyclose so that it is easy to hit. And its catch ring is HUGE, so it’s easy to get bonuses. Still:
- ABC. Be always swung. Once you can nail Curve Ball every time, you get a 1.7x bonus every time.
- Maximize your medals. If you have both the Flying and Fire medals, this is an automatic bonus of 1.1x to 1.3x on your catch.
- Play patiently. Raid bosses defend better than normal Pokemon, so wait until 3/4 of their attack animation andthenmake your catch. You should hit as soon as the ring appears.
- Consistency counts . Aim for the smallest throw bonus you can get each time. If it’s beautiful, it’s beautiful. If that is great or excellent, even nicer. But better the bonus you get than the one you miss, and every extra 1.3 to 2 times counts.
- Nanab about nothing . If you have a hard time hitting the Ho-Oh, use a Nanab. A chance is better than no chance.
- Become golden : If you have Golden Razz Berries and the raid boss you want to catch is either your first or the higher value (IV) you encountered, put it on. Their 2.5x modifiers are the best in the game.
- Keep hitting . Your chance of catching with one Premier Ball is low, but your chance of catching with multiple Premier Ball hits across multiple raids becomes statistically certain. So never give up!
What is the catch rate for Ho-Oh?
Ho-Oh, like Lugia, has a base catch rate of 2%. From there you have the following modifiers:
- Curve premiere ball: x1.7
- Curve Premiere Ball with Razz Berry: x2.55
Curve premiere ball with Golden Razz berry: x4.25
Nice throw: 1x to 1.3x
Excellent throw: 1.7 to 2x.
Bronze Bird Keeper + Kindler Medals: 1.1x
Add up all these bonuses, apply them over the course of 6-14 ball throws, and most people should be able to catch Ho-Oh between half the time (if you use normal Razz Berry and do everything else optimally) and 75%. of the time (if you use Golden Razz Berry and do everything else optimally). (Of course, odds are odds, some people might catch many in a row, others might see several run off.)
What if you really want to catch Ho-Oh?
To maximize your chances of catching Ho-Oh, get as many premiere balls as you can (team bonus, damage bonus, Gym Control) and use Golden Razz Berry on every roll. If you can hit great/excellent throws, get the Curve Ball bonus every time, you have the best possible chance of catching Ho-Oh.
If you run out of Golden Razz, try using regular Razz for the first half of your rolls, then switch to Golden Razz for the second half. It will still affect your chances, but not so much.
What if you really want Ho-Oh candy?
If you already have your ideal Ho-Oh and now you just want candy, use Pinap Berry. Your chance to catch is much lower, but if you catch, you get double the candy.
If you have Rare Candy or also want to catch more Ho-Oh, you can try Pinap for the first half of your rolls and then switch to Golden Razz for the last half.
What is the combat power (CP) for a perfect (IV) Ho-Oh?
2222 is the magic number. Catch.
What are the best movesets for Ho-Oh?
Hm yes. Ho-Oh’s movesets in Pokemon Go are a hot mess. Pokemon Go will only make moves available that the Pokemon had in the original games, but (still?) did not port all the moves, so there is no equal attack bonus (STAB) Quick Move for Ho-Oh. There is also no overheating, which is the best fire type attack move (and the one that Flareon, Charizard and Moltres get.) So you’re left with a hodgepodge of Steel and Psychic quick moves and Fire, Grass , and Flying attack moves.
Personally, I like Solar Beam because it shreds.
Your tips for catching Ho-Oh?
There are a number of other tips, including setting the target size before casting, alternating Nanab Berry, waiting to press ‘OK’, and more. However, it all comes down to math. You have a base 2% chance of catching Ho-Oh, and each bonus and ball increases that chance. You throw, Pokemon Go generates a random number, and if that number is less than your modified catch rate, you get Ho-Oh.
However, if you find something else that works better for you, let me know!
