    Xerneas is an immortal Pokemon that has lived for thousands of years. It sometimes sleeps in the form of a tree. But when it's awake, it can use its branch-like antlers to bestow immortality to others. It's unknown how many people and Pokemon have benefited from this - could this be why Ash never seems to get any older?

    Although Ho-Oh's Pokedex entries do say that it has a home base at the end of a rainbow, it also says that Ho-Oh never stops flying. Anyone who is lucky enough to see Ho-Oh experiences great joy, so it's possible that it's motivated by selflessness.
