Trivia

  • Zapdos, as depicted in an ancient legend, is the titan of lightning.
  • Zapdos appears to have two sets of wings, stating it has a black part and a yellow part.
  • In the N64 era, Zapdos' middle toes were missing in it's 3-d models. This problem was fixed during the Wii era.
  • Zapdos can be caught in FireRed/LeafGreen with a regular Pokeball.

Name pun

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 main legendary pokemon Zekrom, also an electric type. Since its name means electric-two, it is possible Zapdos could have been a foreshadowing of Zekrom.
