Zapdos is a Electric/Flying-type Legendary Pokémon.
Zapdos is an avian Pokémon with predominantly yellow plumage. Black rings encircle its eyes, and it has a long, thin, light orange beak. Its wings and tail are a mass of spiky feathers, with black feathers covering the back of its wings and inner tail feathers. A large crest of spiked feathers surrounds its head. Its thighs are a khaki color, and it has anisodactyl feet ending in talons.
It produces massive crackling and snapping sounds when it flies; these are attributed to the lightning bolts it sheds when airborne.
When Zapdos flaps its wings, it releases electricity that can potentially cause thunderstorms.
When stricken by lightning, Zapdos gains power.
