Ho-Oh is a Legendary Fire/Flying-type Pokémon officially debuting in Pokémon Gold and Silver Versions, though first appearing prior, and is the mascot for Pokémon Gold Version. It is known to be related to Lugia in some way, and is the creator of the three legendary beasts: Entei, Suicune, and Raikou.
Ho-Oh appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When it is summoned it flies up into the background and attacks with its signature move Sacred Fire, creating a massive burst of fire in the area where it was summoned and dealing massive damage to any opponents caught in it. It can also damage opponents as it flies up.
Although it no longer appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, Ho-Oh makes an appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, occasionally appearing in the background on the Kalos Pokémon League stage when it transitions to the Fire-type room. When the fire pillars are active, Ho-Oh causes them to rise even higher.
