Oh-ho, looks like Ho-Oh is back in Pokemon Go.

For a limited time, Ho-Oh is once again available in Pokemon Go.

Players can find the Legendary Pokemon in Raid Battles until August 27.

Niantic Labs said adding the Legendary is a great way to “end Johto Week with a surprise.” Player might evenn encounter Ho-Oh’s Shiny form. Nice.

The Legendary Pokemon last appeared in Raid Battles back in June. The creature is a Fire/Flying-type and if you decide to go up against it, watch out for the bird’s Steel Wing and Solar Beam moveset.

Since it is susceptible to Electric, Rock and Water moves, be sure to pull out the appropriate Pokemon when fighting the creature. If you need pointers, our Pokemon Go guide breaks down the best Pokemon ranked by Attack, Defense and Stamina.
