Ho-oh in Super Smash Bros. N64?[edit]

I am playing the original Super Smash Bros right now and I have paused the screen on a Pokemon that appears in the background of Saffron city. it looks just like Ho-oh and not like any other Generation I bird. Am I correct to say that it is Ho-oh? NOTE: Ho-oh appeared in the first episode of the Pokemon anime even though it is a generation II Pokemon. So it was already established at the time this game was made. I will try to take snapshots of it with a camera. 22:47, 10 August 2013 (EDT)

You need a better description of the bird than just saying that it looks Ho-Oh, because Moltres is the flaming bird that could be mistaken as Ho-Oh. MegaTron1XDDecepticon.png 23:21, 10 August 2013 (EDT)
Sorry I was wrong. It was a Fearow. I tried to erase the previous comment when I realized my mistake. Sorry. (NOTE: I know Fearow is a generation one Pokemon; I just forgot about it. I'm sorry I wasted your time.) 20:31, 11 August 2013 (EDT)
