I picked up the video for the first Pokemon movie for free on the weekend. At the end of the video, Ash says that he say a rare Pokemon the day he set out to become a trainer, and thought he saw one that day (which was, of course, Mew). So, which Pokemon did he see on his first day?
Are you ready for Mahkan-mania to run wild all over you?
I've never actually seen it - just remember reading in a recap one sad and lonely night (not that only sad and lonely people read recaps, no) and read a mention of it in a FAQ for one of the GameBoy games.

Not to be confused with "Hooty-Ho"
You're all so WONDERFUL. Why did they ever have to remove you from the continuity? You'd have made for MARVELOUS stories. You WILL make marvelous stories. And the FIRST story of the new world will be a story of REVENGE! -- The Psycho Pirate, Animal Man 23, May 1990.
It would be Ho-Oh. Houou is the word for Phoenix in Japan, and according to their culture and mythology, one emerges everytime a holy or grand person is about to make themselves known. Namely, that would be Ash.
