Best Moves for Ho-Oh Pokémon GO Detailed

Ho-Oh is a dual Fire- and Flying-Type, so it treads much of the same ground that Moltres and Charizard cover. Moltres is one of the best focused Fire-Types, and Ho-Oh doesn't get the same raw strength. What it does have are a variety of types of moves and massive stats to back it up.

The best Quick Move for Ho-Oh is Incinerate. It gets Same Type Attack Boost (STAB) and is the fastest of the available Quicks. Most of Ho-Oh's moves are actually quite slow, so you'll want this one for its fast Energy yield to get to the Charge Moves faster.

Speaking of Charged Moves, Ho-Oh gets a few moves that can help it cover a variety of threats against it. Brave Bird gets Flying STAB and deals massive damage. The second slot can be saved for a type coverage move.

Ho-Oh can learn the Ground-Type move Earthquake, which helps it out with the Rock-Types against which it is double weak. Alternatively, you can give it the Grass-Type Solarbeam that helps it against Rock- and even Water-Types. Earthquake hits more types than Solarbeam can, and comes out faster.
