It is possible that the last part of each birds name are puns, because the last syllable of each of the Legendary Birds is a number in Spanish (ex. Artic'''uno''', Zap'''dos''', Mol'''tres'''). Zapdos would then be the second Legendary Bird of the trio. Zapdos' name could also be hinting at the Generation V main legendary pokemon [http://pokemon.wikia.com/wiki/Zekrom Zekrom] , also an electric type. Since its name means electric-two, it is possible Zapdos could have been a forshadowing of [http://pokemon.wikia.com/wiki/Zekrom Zekrom] .
