I spent forever trying to rectify the fact that it didn't seem like Articuno, despite the mural on the wall of the next episode.
Then I spent quite a while tring to rectify it's gold-rather than rainbow-coloration, until I realized the obvious; It's just a shiny Ho-oh. --- Jamesruglia: Sylph Bastok10 Hume Male PLD75-WAR37, JamesrugliaxAidrianna I LIKE Dirge of Cerberus, Crisis Core, FF: Mystic Quest, and Star Ocean 3.
speaking of the mural in the next episode..... does anyone else remember that the mural had four panels three of them contained the legendary birds and the fourth looked like one of the dogs raikou i think it was SPOOKY
Although it really isn't about the game HeartGold, I just want to mention something and ask everybody what they think. On the second episode of Pokemon, Ash saw a picture of Ho-Oh, and I believe Moltres and Zapdos. However, they're was a fourth Pokemon. It didn't look like Articuno though; instead it looked like Raikou. Now, if it WAS Raikou in the picture, how awesome is it that two second generation Pokemon were hinted at on the first two episodes. Watch it on youtube and tell me what you think it looks like.
