I voted both as Lugia has a good design but Ho-oh has sacred fire.
To stay on topic though, Lugia is the best wall in the game. Ho-Oh dies to a pebble. Lugia wins this one hands down.

Lugia all the way. Ho-Oh, to me, just seems like it has too much going on in its design, while Lugia is relatively more simple, in design and color.
I chose Ho-oh, because he was first to me when it comes to a Legendary Pokemon in Johto. Oh, and Sacred Fire is awesome.
They both to me are equally awesome
My firey little Ho-Oh, all the way! XD
Lugia. Better speed, better movepool, learns HYDRO PUMP. It can easily beat Ho-oh.
HO-OH!!! FIRE FTW!!!
Lugia. It's one of my favourite legendaries(Yeah that's saying something as there aren't many legends I really care for). It also has the better design IMO(Simplistic, but not boring. Ho-oh has too much going on with the feathers) and Lugia just seems so much more nostalgic to me than Ho-oh.
Lugia is a made of awesome amphibian giant bird/dragon hybrid with great design. Ho-oh is meh.
