A [[OlympusMons Legendary Pokémon]] Ash saw on his first day as a Pokémon trainer. Seeing it causes Ash to realize just how vast the world is and how many Pokémon there are to meet. It has reappeared before him a few times since.

* EarlyBirdCameo: A very literal example, too. Ho-Oh appeared over a year before Pokémon Gold and Silver were released, and in fact its' appearance was the ''very'' first hint that the franchise would continue.
* EverythingIsBetterWithRainbows: When it first appears before Ash, it flies past a rainbow. While it's an In-Universe fact Ho-Oh creates rainbows, this was obviously not known at the time it appeared, making it seem like a coïncidence as Ho-Oh appeared shortly after a rainstorm.

* SeriesContinuïtyError: Is a mysterious, unidentified creature in its debut, but later episodes depict Ho-Oh as just another commonly known legendary Pokémon.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: A Meta-example, but Ho-Oh's appearance was the first implication that the franchise would go beyond the first 151 Pokémon.
* OlympusMons: Discounting the opening, the ''first'' one to appear as well.
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: In its' debut it was colored completely gold and had white sparkles sorrounding it, presumably because it's ''actual'' color scheme hadn't been thought up yet.

* BrokenPedestal: Played and then inverted with Metapod. After getting captured by Beedrill, it blames Ash and actually refuses to be rescued by him. Once Ash shows his trademark UndyingLoyalty however, he quickly regains it's love, and shields him from a Beedrill.

** The first bird Pokémon Ash encountered was a {{Jerkass}} Spearow whose flock attacked him and Pikachu just for being there. Only shortly afterwards, he captured Pidgeotto, who very quickly proved loyal to Ash. It ends up left in Pallet Town to protect it's residing Pidgey from the very same flock of Spearow, fittingly becoming the ArchEnemy of Ash's first Pokémon antagonist.
** During it's final appearance, Misty claimed Pidgeotto to also be the polar opposite of Charizard, who at this point was unruly and selfish. While Pidgeotto thought nothing of risking it's well being to help Ash save Pikachu, Charizard only helped through the collateral damage of a tantrum over losing food.

* UndyingLoyalty: Brock once stated that Pidgeotto would do anything for Ash, and from what characterisation we got to see, it shows. Even it's single defiance of Ash was [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind based around it's devotion to him]]. Unfortunately, it also became a case of...
* TheWorfEffect: From it's first episode in fact. Being among the few of Ash's Pokémon that was evolved and lacked many attitude problems, Pidgeotto would often be fainted to force his other Pokémon into action. In fairness, it was at least often for legitimate excuses such as dirty tactics or type disadvantages. When these distractions didn't occur, Pidgeotto usually cleaned house.

* UnstoppableRage: It's Thrash attack causes it to throw a flurry of punches and kicks at anyone who crosses it.

* HappilyAdopted: Technically the property of a professional breeder called Suzie, who entrusted Vulpix with Brock after seeing his warmness to Pokémon. Vulpix very quickly took to Brock as it's trainer.
* {{Kitsune}}: Blatantly based on such with it's fox like appearance and multiple tails.

to:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He starts off as a stereotypical biker gang leader (except on bicycles rather than motorbikes), trying to stop Ash and friends from getting across the bridge and battling them, as well as idolizing Team Rocket. When he later tries to stop Ash again, and learns that Ash is trying to deliver medicine for a sick Pokémon, he not only lets Ash pass, he and his gang escort him the rest of the way safely.




to:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: See Chopper's entry above; same applies to her.

* AscendedExtra: She goes from having little plot relevance besides being a gym leader in the games to being a protagonist in the anime.


Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Similar to Misty, he has little plot relevance in the games besides being the first gym leader you fight. In the anime, he's a protagonist and travels with Ash through Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh.

* AdaptationalVillainy: In the games, Sabrina is not at all malevolent and actually dislikes battling. Here she has SplitPersonality issues and nearly trapped the group in her dollhouse for the rest of their lives.

* OneOfTheBoys: Her sisters give her constant crap for not being girly enough, and since they're all airheads (well, in the dub, anyway) she just kind of runs with it to distance herself from them. Usually seen competing with Ash in pretty much every open competition they come across or cockblocking Brock.
