Good news trainers, looks like an early Christmas gift has arrived just in time for the holiday season. The Johto region’s legendary Pokemon, Ho-Oh, is now available in Pokemon Go.

Normally, Niantic would debut a legendary Pokemon with a bit of fanfare. So it comes as a surprise that Ho-Oh has appeared out of nowhere.

Earlier this morning (Tuesday, 28th November), Niantic announced that they are releasing Ho-Oh raid battles worldwide. However, it looks like this rare Pokemon is only going to be around for a little while. That’s right players, you only have from now till 12th December to see Ho-Oh in raid battles.


It’s not going to be easy to catch Ho-Oh though. Reports show that this powerful Fire/Flying dual-type Pokemon has a base capture rate of 2%. This low percentage ties it with Lugia and other Legendary Beasts such as Entei, Suicune, and Raikou – making it one of the hardest Pokemon to capture in the game.

In conjunction with the recent Global Catch Challenge, Niantic also released Kangaskhan in East Asia and Farfetch’d around the world.

Good luck catching Ho-Oh guys 😉
