Just found out the hard way Sacred Fire is a physical move.

It had cost me a Wi-Fi battle because I guessed wrong. Why on earth is it a physical move? It never looked like one, and it still doesn't. In fact, HOW can it be physical? Ho-oh doesn't wrap something in fire and throws it at people. This just makes no sense.

Well in GSC the animation was similar to flame wheel and flame wheel is also physical soooooo

Just a small tip of the hat to Ho-oh following the physical/special change since it is (was) his signature move and he has a higher attack stat.

Ho-Oh's base Attack is 130. That's the most apparent reason why.

I always personally went with the Stadium/Smash Bros. animations for the move though. Ho-Oh telekinetically creates and manipulates massive flames which he uses to annihilate his opponent.

Ill keep note of that. I hate the fact that the true ubers are allowed on wifi battles this time around. Its irritating to battle against.

I always figured that Ho Oh cloaked itself in the flames and rushed at the enemy extremely quickly.
