Nuggets, how the hell do I get to catch him?

I accidentally killed Ho-Oh and saved it in a drunken stupor on Silver and Gold I don't play at the moment, so HOW?

I've got all Suicune, Entei and Raikou in my party, I've fulfilled the requirements that I can find everywhere except that I didn't actually catch Suicune in Crystal - I rather mercilessly slaughtered him since I already had a level 100 one.
Does this entail I can never catch a Crystal Ho-Oh without restart?

Five words and a full stop:

Get lost you disgusting cheater.

I am 99.96% sure that you have to CAPTURE all 3 dogs, not killing any.

You'd have to restart to catch Ho-Oh, or trade over Suicune (I think that would work) from GS

You have to be the original trainer of all three dogs, so trading for Suicune won't work.

Sorry, Mu.

Did you speak to Eusine in Celedon's Pokecenter yet? You should be a ble to get the dogs then.

You can't trade them over?

damn...and it took me forever to get them on Gold.

I don't believe I've talked to Eusine in Pokecenter, but then again, I don't believe I've actually noticed him in there.

I realised I still had Gold, which I never play - I just whipped through and threw one of my stockpiled Masterballs (they're so handy when you are lazy) at it.

Strange how I've put in over 700 hours of play between all three carts and I've only just now acquired Ho-oh.

Reminds I of my Blue days when the last slot to be filled in my Pokedex was a Caterpie.

Well, I've never filled all the slots.
I only catch rare pokemon, or pokemon that I plan too train.
