Lugia and Ho-Oh are legendary bird Pokemon that first made their debut in Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver. However, these Pokemon can also make an appearance in Pokemon Leaf Green and Pokemon Fire Red. These Pokemon were originally offered through official Nintendo Events. However, Nintendo does not offer these events anymore. These Pokemon are now only obtainable through a hacking device like the GameShark.
