The Zapdos Festival is a national holiday that is celebrated in honor of the legendary electric-type Pokémon, Zapdos.


The festival began long time ago, when thunderstorms caused by Zapdos splits a really tall tree in half in Joule Town. However, after the tree was burned from the electricity, it grew larger and bore large amounts of fruit for the townsfolk. Since that day, the town held a festival in hopes that Zapdos will visit and bless them. The festival also honors many electric-type Pokémon.
