Now that I think about it, I have to disagree... Kusaka def plans ahead pretty far, and I'm sure he gets advanced info. He foreshadowed Blue's fears of Ho-Oh with a silhouette of Ecruteak all the way back in Vol 3, and that didn't come out until Vol 14.
It's not exactly advanced since Ho-Oh was known because of the anime's first episode.
And wasn't GS in production by then?
