Jiei had encountered the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh when he was younger, and he had a Rainbow Wing as proof. He passed on his fascination with Ho-Oh to Kurio, and both hoped to see it. Following decades of failed searches, Jiei grew doubtful of the encounter and even threw out his Rainbow Wing. His grandson, however, never stopped believing in the stories and retrieved the Wing.
Later visiting the Bell Tower with Ash and Goh, they climbed to the top and called out to Ho-Oh, but it didn't appear. As Ash, Go, and Kurio were about to leave, Jiei spotted Ho-Oh and called out to them. However, by the time they turned back, Ho-Oh had already disappeared from sight.
