It was an omen to show Ash is a special/chosen trainer.

But Ash is a paradox. While he from time to time manages to save some places from destruction and such, he is still a subpar trainer. Not to mention he is Poke-Peter Pan.

There was going to be some 190 Pokemon in the first game but due to limited space they cut it down to the 151. Ho-oh was in the 49 that got cut. But they paid homage to him in the first episode.

Some of the missingos represented the others.


a) This is completely uncomfirmed. The guy who originally posted it could have easily made it up.
2) Ho-Oh apparently was not one of the "49 excluded Pokemon" according to the "developer being interviewed."

Ash's special trait is not his aptitude for battle, but it's relationship toward his pokémon.

Mostly. He manages to save the world sometimes because who needs logic in the anime.
