There is a fair good chance that Pokemon Go Trainers might see the last remaining Legendary Pokemon, Ho-Oh on Thanksgiving.
There are some theories on why Ho-Oh might pay us a visit in Pokemon Go for Thanksgiving:
- 3D assets for Ho-Oh have been added to the game data. Celebi’s assets as well.
- 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.
- During the Thanksgiving event, the last rotation of the Legendary Beasts all around the world will happen. Ho-Oh is the last Legendary Pokemon we haven’t seen in the game, so it is logical to show up at this time.
- We all were 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.
This is just an opinion, and it does not mean that they will release Ho-Oh for Thanksgiving. But it does make a lot of sense because releasing Ho-Oh on Thanksgiving is a very smart move. And every other Gen 1 and 2 Legendaries have found their paths into the game to this point, except Ho-Oh.
There are also rumors that Ho-Oh might show up as an alternative to Mewtwo in an Exclusive Raid. Nobody would really want that, because its counterpart Lugia, was released in a normal raid.
And the entire fiasco with Mewtwo EX raid situation is quite awful, and we think that they should not exist at all.Making a Ho-Oh EX Raid while Mewtwo EX Raid is still in beta testing, could be a really wrong move. But anything could happen, so we just have to wait and see the “final results.”
