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. Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres). Zapdos would then be the second Legendary Bird of the trio. Zapdos' name could also be hinting at the Generation V legendary Zekrom, also an electric type. Since its name means electric-two, it is possible Zapdos could have been a forshadowing of Zekrom.
