There are some theories on why Ho-Oh might pay us a visit right after the Legendary Beasts:

  • 3D assets for Ho-Oh have been added to the game data.
  • Ho-Oh’s CP values and stats are nerfed, which happens only before a Pokemon is ready to be released in the game. This same thing happened with Mewtwo and we saw him the next day.
  • Ho-Oh is the last Legendary Pokemon we haven’t seen in the game.
  • We were all witnesses to Niantic saying that more Gen 3 will be released in December, so it is clever to release the full Gen 2 line before we all turn out attention to the new Pokemon. This was not done with Gen 1 though, but that was before raids came to the game.

It looks like now it’s the best time to learn more about Ho-Oh and its counters.
