Ho-oh VS Lugia. Which is better??? Of course, I don't mean which is better against the other because the correct answer is Lugia. I mean which is better against the "game" and other pokemon. I can't decide if I'll buy HeartGold or SoulSilver and I want some opinions for that reason.
P.S.: I don't care which is more beautiful or impressive.
IIRC Lugia is built for Defense, and Ho-Oh is built for attack. You should get both in the game, considering you were able to in gold/silver/crystal. So really your just picking which one you get first the first one is at 40 second 70, depends on which game you have, i.e. gold you get Ho-Oh first.
If anything just go by what you like. OR the Hoenn legendaries in the game (you get Kryogre in gold, groundon in silver)
