Another Legendary Pokémon has joined Pokémon Go with Ho-Oh now available to trainers participating in Raid Battles around the world until December 12th.
The new Legendary Pokémon is appearing thanks to the massive success that was the Pokémon Global Catch Challenge which saw Farfetch’d unlocked globally for 48 hours.
According to Bulbapedia, Ho-Oh is an avian type Pokémon resembling a phoenix and a peacock. Fans of the TV show will remember Ho-Oh as appearing to Ash Ketchum in the very first episode of Pokémon flying alongside a rainbow across the sky after the thunderstorm. Ho-Oh apparently has the mythical power to resurrect the dead – but I doubt we’ll be seeing that power put to use in Pokémon Go anytime soon.
You’ll need to gather your friends in order to catch a Ho-Oh, as it will only be appearing in Raid Battles – so good luck to any solo players of the game.
